Pressurized Strut Filler
Finally a real time and money saver! This tool changes the way landing gear struts are serviced. No longer do you have to put an aircraft up on jacks to add fluid to and fill Oleo type landing gear. This is a totally clean and safe process. No oil is spilled. The strut valve is not disturbed and the plane is sitting on the ground the whole time. This is safe for the technician and the aircraft.
- Totally safe and totally clean! –No clean up. No oil on tire and brakes or the shop floor
- 10X Faster -Save time and money because you don’t have to drag the jacks out and lift the airplane
- 10X Safer- the airplane never leaves the ground, the technician doesn’t have to be under the aircraft while the strut is being serviced nor does the mechanic have to compress and extend the strut
- 3X the Flexibility -Strut service can be done now on the ramp or at remote locations freeing up hangar space and giving maintenance personnel more flexibility
- It is a convenient, small, compact system, easy to use, and neat to store
- Two tank system. One tank contains clean Strut fluid and the other collects the excess
- Built in pump forces fluid into the strut to top it off and the excess is drained off controlled right from the unit
- Large capacity 5 qt storage tanks are big enough for just about any strut
- Can be used on struts requiring up to 3000 psi strut pressure
- Made in the USA

I purchased this pressurized strut filler from Aircraft Spruce. My mechanic and I has service all three landing gear strut of my 1995 Commander 114tc. The process was simple, clean, safe and measurable. The old fluid was dark red vs. new bright red color. Measurable because you can count the number of pump of hydraulic fluid added per strut before N2 was added. I highly recommend this tool to any retractable gear aircraft owner. To me it’s worth the money and would pay for it self if you service your strut on biennial basis. I am not a mechanic, hydraulic fluid has service life just like your engine oil. I notice a gallon can of 5606 fluid has expiration date. It is exposed to humidity and condensation, I believe in prevention. My next tool will be strut pump. Bogert should give discount to owner of pressurized strut filler. That would encourage more sales.
