Strut Service Tool
Bogert Aviation’s first strut service tool. Typically, the aircraft is placed on jacks. The SST is partially filled with fluid. As the SST is attached to the strut, the pressure in the strut is released into the vented bottle. The strut is compressed and extended several times until the discharge is all fluid. With the strut compressed, remove the SST and service with high pressure air or nitrogen.
- Safer for the mechanic because pressure discharge is contained and hydraulic fluid is not atomized and inhaled
- Saves time and mess
- The strut valve is not disturbed
- The valve core is not removed
- 1 Large fluid reservoir
- Pressure is released into the bottle
- Simple and effective
This is the basic strut service tool. Great value product. Although not a 'top of the line' tool, it still made servicing the strut a 'breeze'. Thank you. To improve it, I'm thinking of placing an o-ring over the tube, just under the lid, to prevent the tube from slipping out of the bottle too easily. It happens!
