Tiger Tool was founded by the owner of a fleet of highway trucks, who took care of his own truck maintenance. As it states on Tiger Tool's website, Founder Mike Skoworodko was attempting to remove a seized universal joint, but was contending with a driveline that could not be budged without causing surrounding damage. He wanted to develop a better way, and thus the world's most effective Universal Joint Puller was born! He then began to develop several other specialty tools directed at the Heavy-Duty Equipment Industry, and after attending several North American, and European tradeshows, sales began to skyrocket. Tiger Tool has a solid reputation with regard to design, and development of unique, specialized tools used for servicing the needs of the Light and Heavy-Duty Equipment Industry.
We at Clark Heintz Tools & Equipment LLC fully endorse these quality, rugged products. We've chosen a special line of Tiger Tools to carry that cover all the bases when trying to get the job done! Our Driveline Tiger Tools include Snap Ring Plier Kits, which come with the original as well as the newer-to-the-line 70301 75 Degree Snap Ring Plier, to allow for easy removal of body panel clips and hotchkiss style snap rings in hard-to-reach areas. Also within the realm of driveline tools is the 14001 Torsion Bar, used with GM's K-35 series trucks with heavy duty chassis, which require a heavy-duty tool to deal with the larger torsion bar; Bearing Cup Installers, used for accurate installation of bolt-retained bearing cups; Yoke Pullers, which expedite and streamline the removal of automotive yokes on drive shafts, transmissions and rear-end differentials without damage to the yokes; Universal Joint Puller designed to fit drivelines 1500 series and under, on intermediate trucks, school buses, farm, and light industrial vehicles; and the 10803 Yoke Puller Kit, designed to remove yokes on transmissions, driveshafts, and rear-end differentials without damage to yokes or other components.
