The cart has 1-inch cam-lock fittings for easy connection, an FBO-14 fuel filter that does not require any tools for filter changeouts and a lighweight all-aluminum construction that also is durable and corrosion-resistant.

Snap-on’s John Bean X-Cel Wheel Aligner features the company’s V3D X-Cel imaging alignment system designed to provide accurate real-time measurements to reduce setup and measurement times. Ultra-high-resolution cameras produce real-time alignment readings and diagnostic data, including 3D modeling of the wheel position, helping to eliminate missed collision damage or mismatched tires and wheels. The wheel clamps and grips are built to provide a solid attachment, while a rolling run-out compensation procedure is designed to accommodate a wide range of vehicles without hardware changes.
All-position steer tire
Goodyear has expanded its portfolio of Dunlop brand truck tires with the Dunlop SP348, an all-position steer tire for regional fleet, school bus and pickup-and-delivery applications. Features include a deep tread that helps provide more miles to removal, a rugged casing design, an enhanced shoulder rib for improved scrub resistance and protection against curbing abrasions, and stone ejectors in grooves that help resist cuts and punctures. The tire currently is available in seven sizes: 11R22.5, 225/70R19.5, 245/70R19.5, 10R22.5, 12R22.5, 11R24.5 and 295/75R22.5.
