TIME CONSUMING REPAIRS? EXPANDER IS A PERMANENT FIX TO LUG WEAR!

For many repair shops, machine owners and operators, lug wear is accepted as unavoidable repeating maintenance. But does it need to be?

IT CAN BE CHALLENGING TO MEASURE LUG WEAR ACCURATELY

The perfect solution - order an extra pair of sleeves! 

Unsure if you have lug wear measurements correct before dismounting the original straight pin? We offer repair kits that give a total expansion possibility of 4 mm! 

The Expander System should be part of the bridge standard. The system introduces an entirely new way of thinking; a solution that makes operation safer, maintenance work easier and saves a lot of money!
