Did this video help you?

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

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

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... 

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

gerardo molero: This is an apes tool

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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??

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!

trunk516: Ahhh a true mechanic....2 rules...get a big hammer and remember the duct tape...lolll

Dan Weese: Lot of jealousy for this guy's product. People say anything on youtube because they don't have to answer for the slop that comes out of their mouth.

Shawn Briggs: Are you still selling these?

happy543210: yeah, you're gonna save some time, but you're gonna ruin (warp) the hub and spindle!

danimal2581: With only two straight holes to mount the tool; it's pretty limited to how many cars it fits. Since most cars have different lug patterns, a good air hammer and chisel works great. get the bearing to spin in the bore, and you're home free. just knock it out.

hubbuster: zuniman31has made a comment on hub buster demo i tried a slide hamer, air chisel, and a gear pullertrying to remove the hub assembly on my 03 ram 4x4. beat on it for two hours and it still wouldnt budge. i found this video after a quick search. didnt want to wait for it so i fabbed one up real quick with some scrap i had lying around. long story short is this tool works! I hit it twice to break it loose then a few more taps and it was out. THANKS HUB BUSTER! a very nice invention.

Justin Jose.: what a sasquatch

hubbuster: nine out of ten mechanics will tell you, you can't remove a frozen wheel bearing assembly with a slide hammer.

studpuppy69: 3:52 someone rips ass, I guess he hit it a bit too hard. :)

Bennie Duncan: TBH there are plenty of better methods of removing a hub than this contraption.

Charlie Atkins: @hubbuster YEA, but this causes the hub assembly to make gouges in the aluminium hub pocket in knuckle, the assembly is designed to come out of the pocket not causing the hub to rooster in the bore also ruins the seal!

James Muso: Hi I worked on my car and family cars for the last 40 yrs. this look like a good tool. But I can't e-mail him to buy one. please reply if you see this The Moose

Maciej Ka: You are an amateur! I hope that no one bought that crap!

Erick Garcia: din't he just break the axle!!!!!!

kg97chevy: not a good demo because lifting car with hub will not let it come apart you have to pull out not up

will wal: whoop tee do all you have to do is tap it with a hammer all the way around and use pb never had a problem

mrspeedskills: may work for front wheel drives but not 4x4s. I made one and used it on a 70000 mile Chevy z71 to no availe. ended up having to use an air chisel and lots of penetrant.
