Did this video help you?

ScottysDetailing: Why don't you just put on the wheel and yank on that??

phattvids: Not a bad idea or tool but I wouldn't start off blasting at it like that. You've got enough leverage there to work the hammer gradually. Maybe even a normal claw hammer to start. And rotate the tool and hit from different angles,more evenly. Would avoid damaging anything further than already may be. Another winning idea,construct it so it's centered with the hub,helping with my other suggestions. Good luck!

HUBBABUBBA DOOPYDOOP: *ME THOR. ME FIX CAR.*

FordTechMakuloco: 3lb sledge and I have em off in 2 min or less and I get a workout

revontheredline2: Hope you guys got a patent started on that tool, I see many other tool companies selling one similar to your tool, Matco is one of them.

coldcash12345: Some of you must not live in the north where there is snow and salt. They really get stuck in there and become really difficult to remove even with heat, air hammers, and specialty tools.

Dave Sokacz: So yes this tool and technique is a bit "caveman", but honestly....If you are removing and replacing the hub/bearing, who gives crap if it damages the hub, the bearing or the lugs? I just want that damn thing off fast and easy. I just went through this on my 2006 Equinox in my driveway with basic hand and air tools and this bastard wouldn't budge. After an hour of spinning,banging and prying on the hub; constructing various pipe/extension/bolt-on contraptions, AND throwing my back out in the process, I finally popped the damn thing out. I cleaned up the inside of the spindle with a die grinder/wire wheel, coated the new hub with anti seize, and reassembled everything in a snap. I would have been more than happy to whack that sucker out with one hit, and so would anyone else in the same circumstance. Now if I had to re-use the original hub, I'm sure I would have to go about things a little differently....... Just Sayin'...............

Joseph Montalbano: I have a 1999 GMC Sierra 2wd 1500 series truck and im dealing with this exact same issue. I have used a variety of techniques ranging from: Map gas torch, pb blaster, Cold Chisel, Hammers of different sizes and last but not least using disposible sockets to try to create a hydralic press. The end result is the same. The wheel bearing hub assembly on the front passenger side of my truck is siezed on. Since it is a 2wd truck there is no axle nut which creates more frustration for me. I watched this video and if I am convinced this works. Yes I might spend $80 or so bucks for a new knuckle but I won't have to worry about this issue for a long time to come. Is there a website that sells this particular product? If so I would be intrested in learning more. Thank you! I hope I get a timely and helpful response!

B Ann: I liked the 2000 lbs on the jack part. That means the little GM car weighs about 8000 lbs . Looks easy enough to make but its easier to just grab my 10 lb slide hammer with the axle adapter.

David G: So you made a piece of metal that attaches to the lug for leverage... fascinating.

tanya bolton: when using the sledge hammer you could dent the fenders, so be careful. Did the rear brake shoes get damaged at all?

BigDogsHunt100: what "mechanic" takes over an hour to remove a hub? I mean really. PB blaster, torch, small pry bar... done. This "tool" seems like a great way to ruin the knuckle, or worse, risk breaking lugs and causing projectiles. Even if you USED this thing, a 20# sledge is insane. :-/

Chad Doubblestein: The email address doesn't seem to work? Has it changed? 

Dan Bartz: "to prove or disapprove "....

kctyphoon: i think this looks like a decent tool, but exactly what did you expect to happen when jacking the hub straight up with the floor jack?? of course it wont come out like that.. tool isnt very professional looking, but it obviously works and i guess thats what counts... next time maybe you should take the brake line off before the demo... 

Dom Johnson: this is a great way to put sideways pressure on the press fit sides of the knuckle and destroy the knuckle. this is a bonehead tool for idiots

tjswan0: great job thanks.

matt34003434: That's the easy part, removing the axle from the hub is the PITA. Mine were so seized up that I bent a rented slide hammer trying to remove them.

davidooch: This product worked GREAT on a very stock hub. Tried pounding it out with a small sledgehammer, then used a slide hammer, but it still didn't work. Yeah there might be more than one way to skin a cat but this is certainly one of the ways. This method works very well and quickly. PS If one has the tools they can easily make one themselves and save the money. 

YoYO Semite: freakING NEW YUCK STATE.....where the road salt, rain, snow and thermo cycling of that freak hole state ruins cars. Move the freak out of the rust belt and things would rust together like that.

Chad Carter: Did nobody else write this off upon seeing that crappy $20 baby jack he was using ? I dont want any auto advice from someone using it , its like saying ," hey ,I dont really know anything about cars at all thats why removing a hub ,which is pedestrian to a mechanic , is magic to me as shown by my horrible china jack ". Its called self respect

dave wells: What a joke lol

James Crowton: That's stupid!! Just heat it up with a torch and pound it out 

gerardo molero: This is an apes tool

mike64988: where ya buy 1 and how much??i need to get wheel hub assembly off my 1998 taurus

billmabe: this is great,I had to remove a bearing that was frozen, used air chisel didnt work beat for over 1 hr with sledge hammer finely came off with lots of oil and hammering

tompwh: Hey good video! Do you have to take the brake shoes/brake assembly off, at the rear. to access the wheel bearing, or can i leave the rear brake, springs etc attatched? thanks

geteventx258: great invention you shoulda patented before showing it off

Keith Sink: Study how an a arm suspension works and look at how he placed the jack,,,he's pushing the hub on,,,

jenriquez316: Why so many dislikes?

1wbrockstar: Copcarmechanic,the point of the jack was to show that eventhough the weight of the car was bein exerted on the bearing it still wasnt breakin loose

deepcritik: Well, now with that tool, just stick a long steel bar inside the tool and pull up and down.

kodiak bear: No crap!!!!!!! what a science!!!!!!!!!

TheCoatneyadkins: Way too easy to cut n weld your own

EatThatUpBeatz: did he just say "Here the BLACKS"? at 1:45

eifeldude1: sounds to me you have never removed a rusted hub before. This tool gets with the program fast.

Zzub7: or it could be because you say there is over 2000lbs on that jack.. no way! the car wouldnt even weigh that much and you still have 3 tyres on the ground so its fake.

WishpoolVocal: slide hammer works wonders. a bit less wrekless than this tool.

Stoneyburke: instead of hitting with a sledge,you could put a square pipe inside that and pull up and down........

will wal: @studpuppy69 holy crap now i feel stupid lol

AssGrabber B: I need that right now.

vtecmonster tns: @Ridebmx79387 dude he replacing the hub so it dont matter. and it looks like a good way the get a hub off

Johnathan Buggs: I always wished there was a tool that would take off a hub...until I saw this, wonder now if its worth it. If its cheap enough (like under $10 cheap), and at my local auto parts store, i might buy.

hubbuster: read my comment i made to Kanatadompiz. Thank you for your comment.

BigRoger07: Ehhh...no, your "instructional" video just well....sucked! Boohoo

hubbuster: @atlantanorth1 thats because there not mechanics and don't know the difference from a wheel hub bearing or a wheel hub bearing assembly. The hubbuster can remove a bearing assembly in secounds versus possibly hours using other applications. I've sold several hubbusters to certified mechanics who have said the hubbuster was heaven sent. lol Thank you for your post atlantanorth1

copcarmehanic rick: im not getting the 'jacking up with blocks' part....that is soooooo stupid. what if it 'did' come off, the car will fall back down possibly hurting self or car....real 'redneck engineer' thar i here da tellya...jeeez, get thos tools away from this guy, before he tries to tsake a motor out. can u say; ASE CERTIFIED??

Adam McGee: I can see an un co-ordinated mechanic hitting the car with the sledge. hah. Also its only got one bolt pattern. What happens if you want a 6 or four bolt buster, you have to order 3? not to mention an air chisle would have done the same job.

HunterCO1: @jokerj80 Trust me you and your buddy are not the only ones. I think the term moron might just be an understatement.

jason york: I wish I still lived in Perry so I could borrow that tool!
