Climax Portable Machine ToolsThe BB4500 lightweight-boring machine is ideal for line boring in limited-diameter applications, such as linkage pivot points, articulation joints, kingpins, hinge points on tilt-bed trailers and steering-axle sleeves on heavy-duty fork trucks. The tool can be powered pneumatically, hydraulically or electrically, and the various motors allow a quick two-bolt exchange. The BB4500's boring bar is 1.75 inches in diameter and available in length from 4 to 20 feet.
