If you only need to use it a few times it will be just fine.Mar 22, 2011
"Chemistry for fun, Computers for money."
I already own the ULTIMATE HUB FAN BLADE BLOWER WHEEL PULLER reviewed elsewhere on Amazon.com. I bought this SUPCO FBP100 to have another puller available since I have two tool bags that I carry in different vehicles. The differences are clear and the SUPCO FBP100 falls short. The SUPCO FBP100 has threaded holes that are not precisely aligned to the center of the tool. The supplied bolts, both square head and cap screw, are coated steel and have a good bit of roughness to be worked out... I could not insert them fully by hand and had to resort to the supplied Allen wrench just to get them to go through the holes. The main bolt was no better and will require grease or dripless oil to function. The hooks are very heavy, much more than the ones with my other puller, and that may not be a fault by itself. But the holes supplied for the hooks do not allow using 3 hooks in any symmetry that will work with a 3-blade fan. There are only 4 holes and they are clearly for use with 2 or 4 hooks only. The tool relies on a plastic tube for alignment of the motor shaft to the puller shaft. The instructions also recommend using a center punch to indent the motor shaft end to match the pin point on the puller shaft. This is a far cry from the other puller I mentioned, where the motor shaft goes into the recessed neck of the puller in an area that is not threaded -- keeping the shafts aligned with no effort on your part. In fact, I never thought about the alignment issue with the other tool. I expect I'll get good service from the new SUPCO FBP100 tool. But when you have a choice, choose quality over price because there's a big difference.

This tool is fantastic ...Jan 13, 2013
By Eduardo Katalbas
Don't be influenced by the negative review. The tool is very easy to align. That's the reason why there are holes on the side of the cylinder, so that one can sight the alignment of the bolt of the puller in relation to the shaft of the motor that is being separated from the blower wheel! The tool that I got worked like a charm in separating the blower wheel from the motor of my furnace that died this winter.
