Piece of equipment for garages for car repairs. Is this called a "pulling cylinder" or has it got another name in E
English?

Explanation:
I don't actually know what a "vérin tireur" is, and it might be obvious to someone else, but I can see 2 possibilities.

1) a hydraulic cylinder, used on a "marbre" to straighten a chassis by stretching it back into shape;
2) a (screw-type) gear/bearing puller.

Since these are different tools and quite different in size and capacity, we'd need to know more about the context in which the term comes up.
