It works great! We have cut our pm time per trailer in half. Having the ability to access the ABS info is awesome. We have installed the update and haven't had any issues.
I am glad I decided to spend the extra money and get the Inspector 920 instead of the other brands we were looking at.
You have a great product.

"My impression of the tester is a lot less important than the facts that drove me to purchase it.The equipment purchased for the initial location has had 0 issues in the first year of use, that's why we bought the rest of them.
The tester removes the electronic/diagnostic skill level from the equation; anyone who can run the tester can make informed, skilled decisions on brake/lighting/ABS systems.
The tester is portable so it can be used in a yard, off-site, or in any area of the shop.
One mechanic can test the systems without assistance or another vehicle, as long as you have an air supply and DC power. This increases productivity and flexibility of work schedule.
The most important thing we do is service brakes, followed by steering, then tires. This allows us to focus a little more time on the other two training opportunities, making our program better.
In closing, the mechanics love using it, and (it) makes them more confident their inspections are better using it."

"Your tester is a great time saver"
Product evaluation then purchase...
"(The Inspector) saved us a couple hours the other day with its ABS alone. The payback is going to be much faster than first calculated, about month or two"
Tested side by side with a competitor's product...
Inspector - "Much more helpful, usable information"
Inspector - "Tells you there is a problem and what it is"
Competing Product - "Just tells you you have a problem, we usually already know that"
"Very glad for having the opportunity to try before buying, and will recommend LITE-CHECK to anyone."

"With one person being able to inspect and adjust brakes using the remote control, the proper inspection and necessary repairs are more likely to be done, and done right, which in turn will help prevent excessive component wear. Our biggest benefit of using the LITE-CHECK tester is efficiency. Also, an accurate timely diagnosis helps us deliver a good maintenance program."
Mike, Shop Manager, MN
"We use the tester for just about every trailer repair and PM that we do. The diagnostics that it gives is also helpful to the less experienced tech. He is able to find the problem area faster and make repairs right the 1st time."

LITE-CHECK Customer for 15 years, over 10,000 vehicles inspected
"I personally like the feature of being able to test a 7-way light cord without having to bring the tractor up to the shop. Also diagnosing ABS problems without having to undock the SBT, which means my daily computer work wouldn't get done in a timely manner."
Steve, Mechanic, FL
"We have 450+ trailers to keep serviced for our customers. Time saved has paid for the unit in less than a year. Contemplating getting one for shop so we can use them in both mobile and shop operation."
Bill, Manager, Independent service shop, IA
"The Inspector turns new technicians into people who can actually fix trailers."

"MSG Half-Mast,I am a US Army Reservist that works full time in an AMSA shop supporting local reserve units. About a month ago I came across a piece of equipment that I think is just awesome. It is called a LITE-CHECK Military Inspector Test System, Model 801M. All you need is 110V, an air supply and a trailer. You hook the air supply to the machine, plug it in and attach the two supplied air lines to the trailer along with the light umbilical. Now with the supplied remote control that comes with the 801M kit you go to the rear of the trailer and press the appropriate button on the remote and check all the lights. Then go under the trailer and check the brakes. No more having to leave the truck hooked up and getting a buddy to help check the lights.The NSN is 4910-01-366-2563 and it is on GSA (Contract # GS-07F-0023K).
I really think this piece of equipment will help any mechanic out there.

Kevin, Director of Maintenance, CA
"I absolutely Love the tester. We are very happy with it. It is the best investment that we have made in a very long time. The tester is definitely paying for itself. The ABS feature is a BIG plus. Don't know how we did without it!"
"I love that dang thing! It has more than paid for itself!!!"
Lacy, Shop Owner, NC
"All of our tech's in 2 different locations think this tester is the COOLEST thing. So I would say we are 100% satisfied!"

"How can our company claim to be state-of-the-art if we do not have state-of-the-art equipment?"
