In The Shed: HAFCO Metalmaster PP-20 Workshop Hydraulic Press
Suitable for general use in any mechanical garage or serious home workshop, the HAFCO Metalmaster PP-20 Workshop Hydraulic Press (order code: P143) is ideal for removing and installing bushing, ball joints, bearings, gears, pulleys and more.
This 103kg H-frame-style hydraulic press is constructed from high-strength, industrial-grade C-channel steel. Measuring 830 x 690 x 1720mm (L x W x H) overall, the width between the PP-20’s front posts is 550mm, while the table top opening (front to back) is 94mm.
The 20-tonne hydraulic ram is manually-operated via a hand pump unit. Key performance specifications include:
• Maximum ram to table = 950mm
• Piston ram stroke = 140mm
• Ram diameter = 48mm
For use on pressing jobs outside the workshop, such as straightening or bending, the ram can be easily removed and transported.
The HAFCO hydraulic press boasts the added feature of an adjustable sliding head, allowing up to 320mm of travel between the centre of the vertical posts. Simply loosen the clamping plate bolts and the head of the press can be moved sideways to accommodate offset pressing jobs.
Supplied complete with a 100mm pressure gauge and two heavy-duty pressing/bending plates, the HAFCO Metalmaster PP-20 Workshop Hydraulic Press is a must-have machine.
