Astoria 2000 offers their Rapid Flexx Gun for making CV boot installation easier and quicker, saving time and increasing shop profitability. The pneumatic tool can reduce boot installation time to less than 20 minutes. The tool is utilized by placing a universal CV Flexx Boot over the installer's 10 retractable arms. Using compressed air, the boot is then spread open wide enough to pass over the axle shaft, without having to remove the axle. Flexx boots are available in three different sizes to accomodate nearly all axle configurations.

- Product From Bee Line
Bee Line designed the Space Saver Ramp to be installed in a smaller area than a standard ramp alignment system by reducing the total number of machine sections required. The design of the Space Saver allows a major portion of the ramp to be raised hydraulically to an operating level equal to the height of the Advanced Aligner Runways. The longer design of the Space Saver lifting ramp creates a more gradual incline, therefore requiring less runway sections. Once the truck is in position, the runways are hydraulically lifted with the touch of a button. The approach ramp incline angle allows low profile buses and RVs to drive on without bottoming out.
