A truly UNIVERSAL pneumatically operated coil spring compressor, for McPherson Strut type Suspension Systems. Fitted with safety locking valve and safety cage, which restricts use when cage is open Suitable for spring diameters from 80mm up to 310mm and for ALL types of springs inc. Tapered, Banana and LH wound springs and the MERCEDES spring. Adjustable spring clamps can be used directly on the spring, or on top and bottom suspension mounts. (nb - triple spring clamp mechanisms are fitted for added safety)
Suitable for the professional vehicle workshop, safety and ease of use are the big features of this new pneumatic coil spring compressor from the Sam Centre (part no 6050) and it fits a wide range of spring configurations and coil diameters.
Conveniently operated with foot controls, when the guard is up the pressure is limited which enables the spring to be positioned correctly to allow fitting of the spring securing hooks. Then drop the guard and full air pressure is delivered to the pneumatic ram which lets the spring be quickly and easily compressed.
A major feature is the ability to fit springs where the coils turn in the opposite direction — the Nissan Qashqai for example — as it makes no difference which way the coils are wound, the securing hooks are easily adjusted and positioned where required.
