Bee Line says its new mobile alignment system is a variation on the LC7000 Series computer alignment gauging system and includes all the same features. They include: the ability to gauge toe, rear tracking and camber, the number one, two and three culprits for steer tire wear; the ability to easily self calibrate, ensuring the equipment is always accurate; and the ability to align wheels to the centerline of the chassis, ensuring maximum tire life. Being computerized, the system is also said to be quick.
But the key feature is, of course, mobility. The mobile package includes a laptop computer running Bee Line’s WindSpeed alignment software instead of a large cabinet and desktop PC. The company says every major component has been redesigned to improve mobility and efficiency including new wireless gyro alignment heads, the new 22000 rear-axle aligner, and the new FPT8500 floor plates.
Transporting the equipment in a van or small trailer is said to be practical, allowing alignments to be done on location.
Bee Line is currently promoting the system at US$19,995, nearly 15% off of the normal retail price, expiring December 1st, 2010.
