|The Deluxe Strut Service Tool is easier to use than the standard Strut Service Tool. Typically, the aircraft is placed on jacks. The SUPPLY TANK of the SST2 is partially filled with fluid. As the SST2 is attached to the strut, the pressure in the strut and any foam is released into the RETURN TANK. The strut is compressed and extended several times until the discharge is all fluid. With the strut compressed, remove the SST2 and service with high pressure air or nitrogen.|
This tool made servicing my landing gear a snap. It was so easy to use, just fill it up, connect it and pump your gear up and down about four or five times and the old fluid gets expelled and the new fluid is sucked in. It took very little time to service all the landing gear.
Simple to use right out of the box. Serviced both mains and the nose wheel in very short time. Definitely worth it
This is a slick tool. Raising and lowering the strut 4 - 5 times completely flushes it and leaves it filled to the correct level. It is much better at leaving clean fluid in the strut since the dirty fluid is pumped into a separate container from the clean. It is easy to tell it is working by simply looking at the clear hoses, when the two are the same, or nearly the same color the strut is clean!
