MAHA runs through MOT equipment

Check out the latest MOT testing equipment launched by MAHA UK.

MAHA UK’s 2250 Eurosystem is a roller brake tester approved by the DVSA for MOT testing and which can be found on the Garage Equipment Association’s handy list of approved equipment. Designed for class 4 and 7 vehicles, the MBT 2250 Eurosystem is appropriate for cars and vans with an axle load up to 3.5t. Built for high volume and repeatability, this piece of equipment aims to provide MOT testers and technicians with consistent and clear results.

After racking up a quarter of a century as a UK subsidiary of MAHA, the manufacturer is aware of the need and demands from existing or prospective customers for reliability, longevity and accuracy.

For instance, the MBT 2250 Eurosystem is fitted with a consistent speed motor. These motors/gearboxes are assembled in house and are designed to withstand extreme torque and stress – giving a longer lifespan of the assembly.

One-stop shop

Eurosystem controls the brake tester, but where this intuitive software comes into its own is that it can access, test and report tests from other modules, allowing the MBT 2250 to transform into an allencompassing workshop platform. These include headlight testers, such as MAHA’s MLT 300 or a sideslip mat. The firm’s UK sales manager, Nick Austin, explains: “Eurosystem comes as standard on all our brake testers and is one of our unique selling points. Its user-friendly software and on-screen graphics allow the technician to get on with the job quickly and, considering it can be used on several workshop stations, get on with the job efficiently.

“[The system] configures a test report, including all the measurement and evaluation results of the tests performed, onto one single print-out. Ultimately, it turns our brake testers into futureproof workshop test and diagnostics platforms, making life easier for the user.”

Relationship with the Garage Equipment Association

The criteria for meeting DVSA specification is becoming more stringent; therefore, MAHA UK needs to stay on top of its game to ensure everything required to be ‘green coded’ – equipment that is current and fully compatible for use in MOT sites – is met, like up-to-date technical requirements, calibration, level of instruction manual and identification.

The GEA upholds industry standards by handling the approval process on behalf of the DVSA, and MAHA UK is in regular dialogue with the GEA to help maintain its own standards and, therefore, offer the best equipment and service to workshops.

There is a list of approved DVSA roller brake testers on the GEA website.
