|Aircraft Strut Pump 10X delivers up to 1,500 PSI of pressure to raises struts without the need to place the airplane on jacks. Safety one-shot air delivery system gives you maximum control over the entire process -- each stroke of the delivery valve injects a small shot of high pressure air into the strut so that you can raise it in controlled increments. There is virtually no chance of you accidentally overpressurizing and possibly damaging your struts.|
Ordered strut pump from Oz, 5 days later it arrived well packed no damage, pump worked very well, no problems at all blowing up my Dakota 236 main gear and nose struts running off a 125/PSI compressor unit as the air supply, No hesitatin recomending this unit for AC under 5700KGs, great unit build quality! Thanks AS GM. Victoria Australia.
After getting through a little operator error I found this strut pump worked exactly as advertised. I will now explain operator error! After attaching the strut pump gooseneck fitting to the Schrader valve DO NOT allow the strut pump tool to move as you connect the nitrogen air source to it possibly tugging ever so slightly on the gooseneck fitting. Even the slightest counter clockwise movement of the gooseneck fitting will cause the swivel aspect of the gooseneck fitting to loosen and it will leak which will not allow the strut to be inflated, (you will not perceive the leak) and you will pump madly away until all your nitrogen is gone. (grin) My suggestion is to always connect the strut pump from the left side of the Schrader valve as this will help from loosening the gooseneck fitting as you flop around under the aircraft.
I previously submitted a negative review. I found that the hose had somehow loosened where it attaches to the pistons body. After tightening, the pump now works very well. I can now recommend it.
Outstanding product, works exactly as stated. After strut reseal only four or five cycles on the pump and back to correct height
I am an A&P and have wanted one of these for some time now. This one from ATS is almost half the price of the only other one I know of. I tweaked mine by adding a high pressure gauge and also a check valve to allow the use of Nitrogen without wasting Nitrogen. (see Youtube video). This pump from ATS is a very high quality and works as it should. I am happy with my purchase.
Worked great on my Cherokee struts. The only negative comment is the air volume per stroke is minimal, but it did the job.
I have not been able to get the proper strut height without putting the plane on jacks. It must take 100 strokes of the pump to make a difference. I don t recommend. I would give it a 2.
It does function but is very cheaply made and looks like an adaptation of a inexpensive grease gun. I used it on my aircraft maybe 6 times in a 3 year period before it broke. Not sure if the quality of the new ones are better.
Sadly the attachment to the strut filling valve is leaking air and every push just goes nowhere. Like an ordinary bicycle pump I need someone to push on the planes tail to fill it. Useless as a single person trying to do it.
