|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.|
This tool is fantastic. Makes servicing struts very easy, clean and quick. As an A&P mechanic and owner of two Piper aircraft, I highly recommend the Bogert Pressurized Strut Filler
Works great No mess
Great product wish I had this tool a long time ago. Save on time energy and mess , very easy to use great job Bogert.
The product works like a champ. Easy to use. Purchased some 5606H and Granville Strut Seal and followed the instructions for use (IFU) of the Bogert Strut Filler Tool. Great product!
I am an owner of 1995 Commander 114TC. Since it’s recent purchase, the strut has been service once years ago. I purchase Bogert pressurized strut filler tool to service all the landings. Assisting the A&P, the process was fast, safe, clean and reliable. The one of the main strut was less fluid than the other during extraction. Old fluid was dark red. Now all landing gears has equal amount of fluid by number pumps before N2 was added. The aircraft stance look better and I feel comfortable that the gears was service correctly based aircraft manual. I highly recommend this tool to all complex aircraft owners out there. It’s must tool. Thank Bogert aviation!
This is a sweet tool and has saved me a lot of time and mess. The right tool for the job!
Nearly impossible to use on low-wing fixed gear aircraft. The tool works when assembled properly. When I attempted to use it the first time, nearly every single fitting leaked and needed to be corrected. In addition the Schrader valve adapter is nearly impossible to screw onto a strut valve on my Piper Cherokee. It took nearly 2 hours just to screw the chuck onto a single Piper Cherokee main-gear strut. The truth is the adapter is simply too bulky to easily screw on. In addition the chuck was faulty and I had to order a replacement as the inner threads slip when turning the nut of the chuck. After correcting the above issues the tools works as expected. I would expect for the price I paid for the tool to get much better quality. The tool is made from about $150 in parts and theyre charging nearly $1k for a poorly assembled, poorly quality checked tool that I ended up redesigning anyway. I had to design and 3D print a special wrench just to be able to screw the chuck onto the Piper main struts. In order to screw it onto the nose wheel strut I had to remove the throttle cable mounting bracket as the adapter is just too bulky.
