Balancer/analyser kit

#1 Post by rotornut » Tue Jun 04, 2013 3:55 pm

Hello gang!
My employer asked me to look for a balancer/analyser since we will be doing our own maintenance pretty soon...
So I need a few advices...
What do you think is the best balancer/analyser kit on the market (price, friendly user etc etc)?

Thanks in advance!

If you're comfortable with the basics of tracking and balancing, a Chadwick 2000 will do everything you want.

I've used that, the Chadwick VXP, the IAC, and RADS.

Lots of similarities between those 3, don't know the cost, but much higher than the 2000.
I like the smart feature where if you tell the computer exactly which adjustment you made, it will correct itself and compensate for actual moves, but again, if you can read graphs, you can do that yourself.

Thanks!

What about the Aces 2020HR Probalancer?

Sorry, I haven't used the ACES or the MICROVIBE units.
