Avon Tuning is now the sole UK and Ireland importer and distributor for Dimsport dynamometers, the Italian built range that can test machinery up to 660hp and help farmers/dealers to diagnose problems with tractors and machinery by simulating real-world conditions.
Three models of farming-specific dynamometers are available through Avon Tuning: the DF2TR Workshop Dyno, which features a single brake and has a capacity to test machinery up to 330hp; the larger DF4TR Twin Braked Workshop Dyno which uses a double brake making it suitable for tractors up to 660hp; and the mobile, trailer-mounted DF2TR-TR, allowing remote support and on-farm diagnostics to be carried out on tractors up to 330hp.
The three models can be operated via a laptop and the intuitive software allows the dynos to measure a range of engine and power delivery parameters, including maximum engine power and torque and maximum PTO power and torque.
The dynos can also provide readings for intake manifold pressure, water and oil temperature, and exhaust gas temperature – key engine management criteria which can be used to diagnose underlying mechanical issues.
The DF2TR and DF4TR workshop models require a three-phase electricity supply and can be manoeuvred on built-in jockey wheels or by using pallet tines in dedicated safe-lifting points.
The range starts with the standard workshop DF2TR, which retails at £16,500 +VAT.
