January 27th, 2012 Comments off

Keltruck a Scania dealer based in Sutton In Ashfield Nottinghamshire recently purchased a Midtronics MDX655P battery tester from aide automotive ltd.

Duncan Edwards the dealers service controller reported the tester to be the ideal product for the branches use, he stated “The use of the tester has been excellent on winter service routines and when carrying out vehicle inspections, easy to use and with the benefit of a built in printer we have a hard copy report of the battery state for our records. Winter is a problem time for batteries and poor batteries will cause no starts which is a problem for our customers, testing and reporting healthy batteries will stop no starts and keep our customers vehicles on the road. Furthermore I can add all the products and back up service I have requested from aide automotive has been second to none.”

Battery Testing quickly confirms the efficiency of a vehicle and gives the owner a view to the functionality and life span of a battery. Companies with large heavy duty commercial vehicles such as trucks or buses need to ensure that the vehicle battery is working efficiently. Many companies test their brakes or tyre pressures before a vehicle inspection but why not a battery? Completing a battery test before an inspection will give a view of the batteries long term functionality.

A Midtronics battery tester is the most up to date and cost effective and easy to use tester. The unique technology makes testing of discharged batteries possible, and once tested, a hard copy print out is available for the customer.

Midtronics test method allows battery testing and diagnostic charging to be safer, fast, simple and able to be performed in front of the customer. Each battery test takes just 7 seconds.
Midtronics Battery Testers will provide an increased level of service, increase battery revenue and efficient battery management for the workshop.

Trailer Light Tester 24 Volt & Diagnostic Reader

January 5th, 2012 Comments off

MV Trucks in Aylesford Kent recently purchased a TrailerCheck 4 Vans for one there mobile fitter vans.


TrailerCheck is an ideal cost effective test gauge to quickly determine the electrical integrity of an EBS/ABS braking system and a full lighting check on a commercial trailer.


Using a tractor unit to carry out a trailer test is not as effective as the TrailerCheck as the tractor unit is not guaranteed to be a 100% working unit. TrailerCheck eliminates the indecision and confirms the trailers fault. Additionally when servicing or prepping trailers there maybe no space to hook a tractor unit up, as TrailerCheck is portable testing in tightly parked yards can be achieved. TrailerCheck is easily used on site by a mobile commercial repairer or used on a multi service lane workshop. TrailerCheck is built into a rugged carrying case, portable and powered by batteries that can be re charged by mains power or via a cigarette lighter within a service van.

MV Trucks David Henniker Stated ” In this day and age buying specilist equipment is a big commitment for companys, however when we realised that we needed this specilist trailer checking equipment we decided to look around for the best application. Having finalised the deal with aide automotive we were not diaspointed, it was delivered quickly and fitted easily in our van, its easy to use with a full set of instructions, we take the workshop to the trailer what could be more simple.”
