Challenge: Loose wheel studs on Caterpillar 777 dump truck were increasing the vehicle's downtime and needed to be removed and replaced. The current method of removal used a cutting torch which was unsafe and would damage the main structure of the wheel.

Solution: An A-210 C-Clamp and RC-Series hydraulic cylinder safely removed the wheel studs with ease. Preventing future issues with loose studs required applying the appropriate amount of torque to each stud. An S-Series hydraulic torque wrench was used to torque the studs properly. The hydraulic equipment supplied reduced the truck’s downtime by improving the ease, speed and safety of the required repair.
