WTD 6 or 10 tonne hyraulic press

Has anyone got a 6 tonne hydraulic press they no longer need? I need to push out some ball joints from some really really rusty VX220 wishbones that i plan to refurb. The generic G clamp device i have wont budge them

Ive seen a few on ebay but thought id ask on here first

Ideally the closer to Aylesbury the better but have wheels, can travel

Cheers

Both - depending on if its metric or imperial. Tonnes are metric i.e. 1000kg. Tons are imperial. A UK ton is 20 CWT. a CWT (or a hundredweight) is 112lbs or 8 stone. A UK ton is therefore 160 stone or 2240lbs or 1016kg so there is only 16kg difference between a tonne and a ton. Of course its different again across the pond so better sticking to the metric versions as they weigh the same everywhere.
