LAYCOCK ENGINEERING'S garage equipment division has reversed its decision to drop the Kismet KBT 1300 brake tester from the combined range of Laycock and Kismet equipment. This is because of increasing demand for a machine which up to the time of the failure of Kismet Dynaflex, had been manufactured in a total quantity of around 4,500 units for the UK alone.
Incorporating a few minor changes to specification, the KBT 1300 unit operates in precisely the same way as the earliest Kismet production models and will fit into the floor excavations prepared for those early units.
Available in standard form complete with two roller beds, cover plates, remote control, pedestal mounted display with wheel slip indicators and automatic stop, the KBT 1300 can be supplied with selfaligning roller beds for vehicles with unequal wheelbase. All models are accepted by the D.Tp for statutory vehicle testing. Laycock Engineering Ltd, Archer Road, Millhouses, Sheffield, S8 OJY; tel: 0742368221.
