Play detector PD5700-05 series

The hydraulic PD5700-05 play detector series for heavy vehicles is designed to check quickly and efficiently most steering and suspension components.
It tests according to the UK statutory testing of HGV and PSV vehicles in accordance with the MOT test (approval: EINAP16216-1210062).

The play detector consists of an hydraulic power unit, a control lamp (cable connected or wireless) and two platforms each with a hot dip zinc chequered plate. One for the left wheel and one for the right wheel.

Each platform is actuated by two hydraulic cylinders. Two models are available: the PD5700 (cable torch) and PD5705 (wireless RF torch). The model number determines the type of control lamp supplied.
