Killer Tools
Vacuum Floor Puller
Reviewed by Basil Jennette, auto body repair technician
at Kneisel's Collision in Natomas, California.
Q: How did the equipment function
as far as saving you time?
A: Quick, easy setup. This pulling post
has an incredible amount of suction to
make strong sheet metal pulls with confidence.
The fact that it's portable and can
be moved from car to car (where our tools
are located) is a huge time saver. The prior
option for us was to drive to an available
frame rack and bring tools with us.
Q: How has using this tool impacted
your shop's profitability?
A: Anytime you can work where your tools
are located and not have to go in search of
them is time saved and work profit.
