Dealers ‘on target’ for quicker alignment

Mercedes-Benz dealers across the UK can now benefit from faster wheel alignment measurements following Mercedes-Benz factory approval of the Hunter HTA-MB-TD wheel alignment system which acts as a direct replacement for the older HTA-MB-HD.

The new TD targets for the HTA-MB are made from a tough durable composite material which are lightweight and more compact than their predecessor, making alignments not only quicker, but much easier for technicians delivering superior, high-precision alignment on Mercedes-Benz cars and light commercial vehicles. The targets being free from any electronic circuitry and batteries means they are virtually maintenance free. Furthermore, the targets are designed to be used with existing Mercedes-Benz’s specialised wheel clamp adaptors.

‘Hunter has a proud reputation for engineering innovation and we’re delighted that Mercedes-Benz workshops are now able to utilise the very latest TD alignment targets,’ comments Paul Beaurain, managing director, Pro-Align. ‘As franchise dealers look to continually improve their customer service levels and aftersales revenues, wheel alignment has become an increasingly important service. The new targets will allow dealers to make alignment checks even quicker than before, helping to further improve their workshop efficiency and return on investment.’

While new to the Mercedes-Benz network, Hunter’s TD targets have already been widely proven in many other OEM franchise networks, independent workshops, bodyshops and tyre shops as an integral element of the Hunter HawkEye Elite TD system. This award winning equipment enables workshops to deliver a full 14 point four wheel alignment check in just 90 seconds, including an important rim runout compensation calculation, with a full results printout in just 90 seconds.
