‘BushBaby’ – small bush and liner removal system
Aircraft bushes and liners can be removed in minutes with the ‘BushBaby’ extraction kit from Hanley Smith
If time is precious and you are in the business of reducing maintenance time and costs, the Hanley Smith ‘BushBaby’ will be of interest to you. Specially designed for small bush and liner removal.
One of the problems of landing gear maintenance and overhaul, which can be particularly difficult and costly in terms of component damage, is the removal of bushings and liners. To overcome this problem we have developed a unique extraction system, which quickly and cleanly withdraws interference fit components, without damage to either component or housing.
This patented tool can remove back to back bushes as small as 0.25″ (6.4mm) bore. A bush is forced out by injecting high pressure water between bushes. Our 747 flap carriage kit contains lances to remove bushes from 0.25″ (6.4mm) to 2.14″ (54mm) diameter. The 747 undercarriage kit contains lances for bushes 0.375″ to 1.75″.
