Wheelchair Bearing Outer Race Removal Tools 608, R6 & R8 Kit
We created this high-quality tool kit to solve a very simple but very hard problem. When users do not properly maintain their wheelchair bearings the bearings can fall apart leaving the outer race of the bearing inside the caster, fork, fork mount, or rear wheel. Removing the outer race can take hours of work with a rotary tool or torch and can do lasting damage. This tool was designed to remove the outer race of the most common bearings found in manual and some power wheelchairs. The bearing sizes are 608, R6, and R8.
Go faster, roll further
Spokz has teamed up with WheelchairBearings® in the USA to bring you tools and bearings specifically designed for the wheelchair market.
If you want your wheelchair to move faster, go farther and smoother, then you have to maintain your wheelchair’s bearings. Your wheelchair has bearings in three places: front caster, front fork, and rear wheels. Most wheelchair manufacturers say you need to re-grease or change your front caster bearings yearly, and the forks and rear bearings as needed. With the right tools, this is easy to do. This tool was designed to remove the outer race of the most common bearings found in manual and some power wheelchairs. The bearing sizes are 608, R6, and R8.More zoom less squeak!
- Easy to use - this tool is designed specifically to remove the outer races of bearings stuck in place
- Cost-effective - you don’t have to buy an entire set of tools just for one or two sizes
- The right tool for the job - most bearing tools are designed for bicycles or cars, not wheelchairs, so you have to make them work, which can damage your gear
- Less risk of damage - a specialised tool reduces the risk of damaging components as compared to using a flat head screwdriver
- Specialised design - This tool was designed to remove the outer race of the most common bearings
- Due to variation in the inside diameter of various manufacturers’ bearings and wanting to be usable with the broadest range, the tools are cut small so you will need to use a lot of pressure to tighten.
- Improper removal or installation of bearings can permanently damage casters, rear wheel hubs or caster stems. Please use caution when using brute force
- Make sure you know the size and types of bearings on your wheelchair and buy the right sizes
This tool is designed to work with the following Manufactures wheelchairs:
- R6 - Tilit Litespeed casters
