New Tool Helps Techs Safely Remove EV Batteries
March 4, 2022—BendPak announced the release of a new tool aimed at helping technicians in auto shops better service EVs.
The EV2400SL EV battery pack and powertrain lifting system, allows technicians to safely remove, service, and install electric vehicle batteries. The tool also doubles as a powertrain lift for internal combustion vehicles.
“While electric vehicles are hot right now, the majority of vehicles on the road will continue to use internal combustion powertrains for a long time to come,” said Jeff Kritzer, BendPak executive vice president in a press release. “That’s why we’re designing equipment that maximizes return on investment by supporting service on both electric and gas vehicles. The EV2400SL and 10AP Series can get to work as soon as they’re brought into the shop — regardless of when a dealership sells its first EV.”
The EV2400SL is compact and portable, supporting 2,400 pounds on its oversized 40-inch by 60-inch platform.
