The wheel play detectors quickly and accurately check for wear in a vehicle’s suspension and steering.

Moving independently of one another, each plate performs a different function operated by a robust remote control with an integrated LED torch.

The right hand plate applies load to the suspension components using a lateral movement to check for any play in the joints, whilst the left hand plate applies a turning action to determine any wear in the steering joint and steering rack.

Hydraulically operated and made from strong galvanised steel, the plates provide a long lasting construction and maximum power for any workshop that is in constant use.



  • Hydraulic operation for maximum power
  • Two sets of moving plates for increased wear protection
  • Auto self centering
  • Operate by remote control with an integrated LED torch (wireless remote with all Scissor lifts)
  • Right hand plates performs a lateral movement
  • Left hand plate performs a rotation movement
