Leading garage equipment specialist, V-Tech Commercial, says its innovative BM20200 mobile brake testing unit can help companies to cut the cost of fleet management by allowing business owners to perform their own tests in-house.
Designed for light and heavy vehicles with axle loads up to 20,000 kg, the BM20200 is fully DVSA approved and meets with the ISO standard, ensuring total vehicle compliance. The unit even issues a DVSA-style print out to indicate whether the vehicle has passed or failed.
Undertaking in-house brake testing also presents an extra revenue opportunity, giving the option to offer the service locally to neighbouring businesses.
Without compromising on the features offered, the BM20200 can be used either as a transportable unit or by businesses with multiple testing sites, conveniently requiring a mere 3.5 metres of set-up room.
When compared with standard, on-ground brake testers, the BM20200 allows greater flexibility to move and expand the vehicle maintenance area as the business grows, yet it still features exactly the same options and characteristics, such as:
- Infrared remote control
- Service line and cylinder air pressure measurement
- Automatic axle weighing
- Test of 4×4 / 6×4 / 8×6 driven vehicles
- Diagnostic printout
- Connection to PC/Notebook with BM Windows software
- Axle load simulation
The robust unit is incredibly easy to assemble, set-up and work with, requiring just one technician to spend 10-15 minutes in order to make the BM20200 fully operational.
Its unique design permits the brake testing unit to be placed and used directly on a wide array of workshop floor surfaces – including uneven tarmac, concrete, gravel, sand, dirt and snow! – without any intense manual work. Drive on / off ramps are folded down, whilst the display is simply placed on a mobile device in front of the brake tester and power attached to the CEE connector.
The mobile brake tester can be customised to suit the needs of the end user, with the option to mount the display of the BM20200 on a fixed wall or floor mounting for more permanent installations if required.
Chris Phipps, Head of Sales at V-Tech Commercial, said: “The BM20200 mobile brake tester offers a unique proposition for businesses, enabling them not only to reduce their outgoings, but also giving them the opportunity to add an additional revenue stream by offering their brake testing services locally.”
