The Rust Hog uses a dense, aluminum oxide-infused polypropylene abrasive material attached to a 4” (10 cm) hub used with a 12” drive electric or pneumatic impact tool. The Rust Hog hub body is 4.25” (10.8 cm) long, and the abrasive pads are 2” (5 cm) in diameter. It features a 2.25” (5.7 cm) deep center hole for use on wheel studs.
The tool allows a service technician to aggressively attack the oxidized surfaces, and is ideal for removal of corrosion from wheel mating surfaces. It can be safely used on steel, aluminum, magnesium and alloy wheels. See the Rust Hog in action at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmE2uVmkTqg.
The Rust Hog assists in meeting compliance with the Tire Industry Association’s (TIA) R.I.S.T wheel mounting procedural standards.
*Ken-Tool advises the technician wear protective goggles and a dust mask when using the Rust Hog abrasive tool.
