Compact Pit with Brake Test & Wheel Play Detection

The TK-BM65 is a unique, all in one solution for workshops looking for a brake tester, play detector with inspection capabilities but without the space or requirement to build a complete inspection pit in their workshop. The plug and play galvanized steel inspection pit can be used indoor or outdoors and comes pre-assembled including the brake tester, play detector, lighting, hydraulic inspection floor, integrate sump tank, side entrance stairs (either left or right), safety rails, heating, and optional hydraulic aluminium cover (for use outdoors). The TK-BM65 can be installed directly on a sand-base without the need for concreting, making it suitable for a wide range of locations and perfect for businesses looking to get maximum value from the space available to them on their premises.



The core benefit of this all in one solution is the ability to have access underneath the vehicle, via access steps on the left or right of the TK-BM65 (depending on the area requirements)  for quick inspections especially when using the play detector. The operator can walk through the 1600mm operator tunnel into the inspection area fitted with a slip-safe rubber floor. To allow for even easier access the floor of the inspection pit area itself can be hydraulically lifted via a remote control raising the technician by up to 40cm to allow greater access to the underside of the vehicle. A pit safety system is also in place to stop the brake tester operating whilst a technician is in the pit inspection area.

The TK-BM65 has been designed for outdoor use and  can be supplied with an optional aluminium hydraulic cover to protect the brake tester from the elements and an optional heating system which can be thermostatically controlled to protect the brake tester and play detector in those winter months. The aluminium cover is also designed with safety in mind and unless fully open will not allow power to the test equipment so that it cannot inadvertently be started  or roller bed lifted when the cover is not open.

The inspection pit measures a compact 4270mm long x 2180mm wide with a depth of only 1808mm. The TK-BM65 comes equipped either with the standard 14200 inground brake tester or the 18200 load simulation brake tester from Totalkare depending on the workshop needs. Both brake testers have 1000mm rollers and are capable of testing axles of 16,000kg and come with the latest wireless tablet interface to allow for one man testing from the comfort of the driver’s seat. On request roller lengths of 1250mm can also be supplied for vehicles with a wider wheel base.
