Hammer Untitled 1Ball peen hammers

Snap-on’s ball peen hammers help provide maximum power with minimal effort to do more jobs quickly and efficiently. Available in a range of sizes – 8-, 16-, 24-, 32- and 40-ounce – the hammers can be used for a variety of repair jobs, including brake rotors, brake drum removal, ball joints, tie rod removal, tires, seal installations and loosening oil pans and covers.

Outside the hammer, the polished steel head has a large, tough striking surface and a torpedo-shaped peening surface. The compact head design is engineered for concentrated power delivery, while the microcellular grip conforms to hand shape and reduces vibration, the thumb rest allows users to choke up in a tighter work area, and the flared end helps prevent the hammer from slipping.

Inside the hammer, the internal steel canister features a free-flowing steel shot design to improve dead blow action and reduce rebound.The composite handle shank is lightweight and strong as steel, and offers improved balance while defusing shock, dampening vibration and flexing back into shape.

Axle Untitled 1Large-diameter trailer axle

Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems’ lighter-weight Intraax AAT integrated trailer suspension system now features the company’s Large Diameter Axle (LDA). The switch to LDA increases the outer diameter from 5 inches to 5¾ inches while slightly reducing the axle wall thickness. This reduction, combined with the increased diameter, creates a more efficient use of material, increasing axle strength while reducing weight and increasing bending and torsional stiffness. The integration of LDA on AAT 23K models also allows customers to continue using a wide bushing pivot connection while enjoying a 19-pound weight savings over current 5-inch AAT 23K axle models. To accommodate more robust applications, AAT 25K and 30K models will combine the LDA technology with a thicker axle wall for applications that require the higher 25,000-pound axle rating; this thicker axle wall, combined with the company’s axle-beam connection, weighs 30 pounds less than current Intraax AAT 25K/30K models.
