SHERPA presents new Play Detector AST-Flat-4.1

We are pleased to present you an advancement in the field of play detectors: From 1 December 2021 onwards, the hydraulic play detector AST-Flat-4.1 will replace the previous AST-Flat-4.0.

The AST-Flat-4.1 with an axle load of max. 4 t is available as above-ground and in-ground version. With a height of only 50 mm, the AST-Flat-4.1 has an extremely flat design, that has been improved even more compared to the previous model.

The AST-Flat-4.1 features the following characteristics:

  • The powerful, hydraulically operated floor-assembled test plates move against each other laterally and lengthwise and make loose or worn-out axle and steering parts immediately visible.
  • The test mechanics are very flat and enable an above-ground installation of 50 mm height – with integrated ramps on both sides of the test plate for driving up and down. Alternatively, the test mechanics can be assembled into ground foundations as floor-level installation.
  • The hot-dip galvanised test plates move on low-maintenance and low-wearing plastic sliding bearings.
  • The compact control box, including main switch, is mounted directly to the powerful hydraulic unit.

Soon, a new version of the AST-Flat-4.1 will be available for our established scissor lift SHB-Safelift-4.2 – flush-mounted in the lifting platform, with the test plate at platform level. This means that both, the lifting platform and the play detector, can be used as headlight adjustment testing area. Thus, the available space can be used ideally.

The delivery time of the new AST varies depending on the chosen model and options.
