Bush and liner removal

Our kits reduce bush and liner removal time from hours to minutes!

If time is precious and you are in the business of reducing maintenance time and costs, the Hanley Smith ‘BushOut’ and ‘Urge Tool’ will be of interest to you.

One of the problems of aircraft landing gear maintenance and overhaul, which can be particularly difficult and costly in terms of component damage, is the removal of bushes and liners. To overcome this problem we have developed unique extraction systems, which quickly and cleanly withdraw interference fit components, without damage to either component or housing. Bush and liner removal is now simpler than ever!

  • Quick removal of bushes
  • No damage to component
  • No damage to housing
  • Single operator
