I have an identical press. I rebuilt my gearbox and did suspension stuff all good. The only thing to think about is the smaller presses aren't wide enough for gears when doing gearboxes so a hydraulic puller set is required but for normal use thats perfect. Can be had for cheaper than that too.

Looks OK, the only thing I would suggest is to find the right spot for it and bolt it down. Man do I have a humourous story about a 50 tone press in PNG :).

Same as we have at work, almost looks identical too. Got it from the Toolbox in Mossvale, was around the 290-300 mark. Its bolted down as well.

Thanks guys. There's no way I'll ever rebuild a gear box I would say so this looks like the jobbie for me.

I've got a cheaper one,same size but mines basically got an upside down bottle Jack and no gauge,I only got it to change radius arm Bush's which it did easily. imo a 20t press is more than big enough for most people.just be aware that on the smaller presses the table is very narrow so you won't be able to press things like axle bearings etc off,but I've always cut them off anyway and then press the new ones back on,no problems.

I bought a new "50 tonne" press for our workshop in PNG, it was delivered and I spoke to a couple of tradesmen about where it was to go and bolting it down, 2 days later the press is still sitting on the dock, so I find the tradesmen and ask them why they haven't installed it, "Nogat boss, look im weigh 50 tonne".

This is the one I have my eye on, its air over hydraulic so it leaves both hands to hold the job.

Thing is it keeps going up in price.

That's the same style I bought for the PNG factory, the air connection is quite handy.

If you can get it installed :rolleyes:.

I got a cheap 20t job, love it.

Best if you have a mate with a BFO lathe to make perfect sized dies for all the patrol bushes too.

I also got a 400mm section of the block and blade when we bought new ones for the 60t pressbrake at work, so I can use it as a bender too.

If you can get all these bits it becomes much more handy :)

Also you can threaten to squash your teenager's fingers if he doesn't do the dishes.

I just brought a cheap $100 3/4" drive socket set of eBay, your bound to find the right size for what ever you want to press out.
