One of the biggest arguments we hear from potential customers against buying wheel alignment equipment is the mistaken belief that offering wheel alignment services means specialising too much.
"We have a mixed workshop" they say. "We can't go for wheel alignment equipment because it involves tying up a ramp and we will need so many aligners to cover the range of vehicles that we work with, from a Classic Mini to light commercials."
This is no longer true, and busy workshops can profit from wheel alignment services no matter what their vehicle mix. The Absolute Alignment Bluetooth Pro is truly a "flexible friend". The measuring heads easily cope with the 10" wheels of the Classic Mini, yet can be adapted to cover light commercials too. This bus at one of our customers in the south west is being aligned using a normal Bluetooth Pro with some rather special accessories:
- Wheel Clamp Extension Arm Kit allows fitment to bus wheels
- Head Mount Extension Pins move the head clear of the hub dome
- The inbuilt High Power Infrared Emitting Device allows the aligner to take accurate readings along the 10m length of the bus
Because the Bluetooth Pro is not tied to a ramp, wheel alignment can even be carried out on vehicles that don't fit inside the building. Mobile alignment away from ramps and the main workshop is well proven by Absolute Alignment customers, it opens up a whole new business model to mixed vehicle workshops.
