Quality construction.
This is simply the most effective compressor for handling virtually any straight, conical, or offset spring. With its adjustable arms and four-point locking jaws, the StrutTamer Extreme securely holds the spring in place. To keep the strut assembly straight during compression, weâ€™ve developed a center screw that floats from side to side. This way the strut and spring remain aligned â€“ no matter what condition the spring is in. The StrutTamer Extreme also features an extra long 3-bar handle crank with the needed leverage to compress heavy-duty springs faster and easier. The StrutTamer Extreme can easily be mounted to the wall without the need for adapters, or you can choose the stand. The OTC StrutTamer Extreme stand features steel frame construction with two wheels that allow you to easily tilt the stand back and move the entire unit to the work area. The standâ€™s narrow design allows for easier mobility between vehicles in the shop. During compression, the wheels lift off the floor, and four no-slip rubber pads keep the stand firmly in place. Features extreme duty design to handle the heavier springs found on mid- and some full-size truck strut assemblies, new frame includes cross bracing at arm mount locations eliminates frame flex when compressing heavier springs, 2:1 reduction gearbox allows for a 2:1 torque compression increase when compressing struts, lock rings to hold arms in position eliminates arms from spreading or sliding when compressing offset...
The Strut Tamer Extreme is simply the most effective compressor for virtually any straight, conical, or offset spring. Extreme duty design to handle the heavier springs found on mid- and some full-size truck strut assemblies. New frame includes cross bracing at arm mount locations - standard. This eliminates frame flex when compressing heavier springs. 2:1 reduction gearbox - standard. Allows for a 2:1 torque compression increase when compressing struts. Lock rings to hold arms in position - standard. This eliminates arms from spreading or sliding when compressing offset or unique strut configurations. Four-point locking jaws securely hold the spring in place. Open-ended design means you can take the strut in and out, quickly and easily. The arms adjust in and out, up and down, to accept many sizes of springs. (2-1/2 inches to 10 inches diameter), (2-1/2 inches to 24 inches vertical stroke). Extra long 3-bar handle gives user the leverage needed to compress heavier strut springs. No need to change shoes for different size springs. Easy to transport when mounted on optional stand (No. 6592 - Strut Tamer Extreme with stand; No. 6582 - stand only).
