    Brooksville, FL, August 11, 2020 – ESCO, a leading worldwide manufacturer and supplier of tire changing tools and accessories is pleased to introduce the HD Stud Kleen, a stud and wheel surface cleaner specifically designed for medium and heavy-duty truck applications. The new HD Stud Kleen cleans the wheel and hub mating surface and studs, allowing accurate torque, preventing potential vibrations, and seized rims.

     

    Accommodating medium up to heavy-duty truck stud sizes 3/4” and 22mm, the HD Stud Kleen is the new, complete all-in-one hub and stud cleaning solution. Specifically designed to fit over the stud on a truck hub, the HD Stud Kleen cleans corrosion and rust from the mating surface, reducing wheel-off incidents caused by torque complications. Compatible with ½” air impacts, the HD Stud Kleen is an easy go-to shop accessory for tires being demounted and serviced.

    “After successfully launching the original Stud Kleen for passenger vehicles in 2019, we quickly realized a need in the industry for a similar type product in the truck market,” commented ESCO president Steve Dyer, “the HD Stud Kleen is a powerful air tool accessory far more efficient and effective than a wire brush or grinder.”

     

    The HD Stud Kleen’s durable cleaning pads are constructed from a dense abrasive material, specifically designed for heavy-duty applications. With the ability to clean up to 200 hubs using a single unit, the HD Stud Kleen performs better than competing products on the market 40-1.

  3. New Air Pressure Reducers by ESCO Reduce Damage and Equipment Downtime

    Brooksville, FL, March 12, 2020 – ESCO, a leading worldwide manufacturer and supplier of tire changing tools and accessories is pleased to announce the launch of two new products to regulate air pressure for air tools and air-hydraulic-powered pumps. Engineered with two preset PSI values, the new Air Pressure Reducers are specifically designed to assist in lengthening the life of tools and equipment, adhering to manufacturers’ recommended operating air pressure and promoting safe and accurate use.

    New Air Pressure Reducers by ESCO
    Most air tools typically operate at 90 PSI while most air-hydraulic pumps run at 110 PSI. Air Pressure Reducers provide a solution to the damaging effects of over-pressurized pneumatic tools. The risk of operating over-pressurized equipment can range from blown seals and bearing failure to the complete destruction of an air motor. Repairing or replacing an air-powered or air-hydraulic pump is expensive, as is the additional cost of equipment downtime.

    The aluminum housing with antirust and noncorrosive parts is equipped with an internal filter that prevents debris and other particulates from contaminating and clogging the inner mechanism of an air motor. With +/- 10% accuracy, the Air Pressure Reducers provide a steady flow of regulated air to provide accurate operating pressure with every use. Applying an Air Pressure Reducers as an inline assembly to air tools and other equipment promotes safety and lowers the potential risk of common equipment malfunction.

    For any further questions regarding the new Air Reducers (Part Number 10609 reduces to 90 PSI and Part Number 10601 reduces to 110 PSI) or any other products available from ESCO please contact an ESCO Sales or Customer Service Representative at Toll-Free 1-800-352-9852 or Directly at 352-754-1117.

  4. Redesigned Handle Adds More Value to Popular ESCO Trolley Jack Model #90521

     

    Brooksville, FL, December 13, 2019 – ESCO, a leading worldwide manufacturer and supplier of tire changing tools and accessories, announces the redevelopment to the handle on bestselling 3-ton trolley jack. After lengthy evaluation, testing and research, ESCO is pleased to offer a redesigned 3-ton jack with a modified “T” handle on the Pro Series Trolley Jack Model 90521. The original Pro Series Trolley Jack was previously equipped with a plastic composite “T” handle, prone to failure with vigorous shop application. Making for a sturdier unit, more capable of handling the wear of daily use, the new “T” handles promote less cost and downtime for the end-user.

    The newly redesigned “T” handle boasts a robust and sturdy welded steel construction and rubber hand grips for comfort. This handle modification allows better leverage and handling while manipulating the jack during the process of lifting and lowering a vehicle. Most importantly, the reengineered handles will eliminate the need for replacement parts, hence, reducing the overall cost to the customer over the lifetime of the trolley jack.

  8. MODEL 10312 & 10314 PRODUCT UPDATE

    ESCO Model 10312 and 10314 Product Update

    ESCO is proud to announce its newly engineered Cylinder Stop Ring for 55 Ton Hydraulic Cylinders [Model(s) 10312 & 10314].
     
    The first-generation cylinder stop ring had a single groove machined for the piston rod wiper. The wiper kept internal contamination to a minimum, as was designed, it also created a slight side to side movement. This movement increased point load situations which, in turn, caused severe scarring on the outside walls of the piston rod as well as the internal walls of the cylinder.
     



     
    What has been done to improve on the current design, in addition to the wiper ring groove, a wear ring groove has been machined into the stop ring. This wear ring will give the piston rod extra support, when extended, which will keep the side to side movement to an absolute minimum. The wear ring and wiper together will help keep away internal contamination. This will also minimize point load damage which will increase the life of the aluminum cylinder and keep the service tech away from potential harm.

    For over 30 years, ESCO has been the world leader in quality hydraulic tire changing tools and accessories for the Commercial Truck, OTR, Mining, Automotive, and Agricultural Market.
     
    IN SUMMARY:

    • Wear ring added to the brass stop ring
    • Additional support
    • Minimal side to side movement
    • Minimize internal contamination
    • Point load issued lessen considerably
    • Service tech kept away from potential harm
