Laser tools has created a spring compressor that safely compresses and holds the coil spring, before the removal of the shock absorber.
In a truck, vibrations induced by road and cargo are transmitted to the cabin and consequently to the driver. To make the driver’s ride as comfortable as possible, most modern HGVs and truck cabins are equipped with cabin suspension systems — the heart of these suspension systems is the coil spring/shock absorber units.
These are a service item and will wear over time. When either the coil spring or shock absorber needs to be replaced, a suitable spring compressor is required that suits the size and strength specifications of an HGV cabin coil spring. The Truck Cabin Shock Absorber Spring Compressor from Laser Tools has been introduced specifically to safely compress and hold the coil spring prior to removal of the shock absorber. Vehicle applications include the Volvo FM, FH 500P and 540P ranges.
