Boston launches new Play Detector

Leading MoT supplier Boston Garage Equipment have welcomed the new VOSA regulations for one-man MoT testing which greatly reduces the cost to MoT stations.

Anticipating strong demand for lower cost play detectors, Boston is introducing their impressive pneumatic model PD-302 which was VOSA approved last year for Class 4 and 7 lift and pit installations.

The PD-302 will provide a choice from Boston who have previously sold only their hydraulic model PD-301 which is claimed to offer more features than any play detector in Europe. The new pneumatic model performs the basic MoT needs but as expected from Boston, the design is unique and innovative. Powered by patented fluidic muscles which can develop ten times the initial force of conventional cylinders of the same diameter, the advantages are considerable. Instead of typically over 30 parts on an air cylinder, Boston's unit has no pistons, no rods, no packing or seals, no gaskets or rings, no needles or magnets. No friction, no wear, no maintenance and just one moving part. This design concept is exclusively available from Boston.

Managing Director Ray Calcutt explained "our hydraulic unit is excellent value with 200bar power and numerous functions, but we now have to address an expected surge in demand for a lower priced basic model. As with all pneumatic play detectors, there is less force than hydraulics, however both models perform really well so there is now a choice from Boston. Both models are VOSA approved and can be retrofitted to all Boston 4-Post lifts".
