Recently, AW Dyno Technicians returned from a 10 day trip to the East Coast to perform onsite training for several AW clients. Training mainly covered the NEW AG.4X PTO Dyno, a direct flywheel dyno test, and many services on older style Nebraska series dynos.
Our first stop was a Hoober, Inc dealership. Our Technician Charlie performed training for their AG.4X Tractor PTO Dyno.
Electronic Valve and Touchscreen Control
Two popular features of the AG.4X PTO Dyno is the Electronic Valve and Touchscreen Control. AW Dyno AG.4X is the only PTO Dyno in the U.S. market that uses this innovative technology and has the capability to control the dyno in the cab of the tractor via ETS-XT.
Load Control Options
The AG.4X PTO Dynamometer allows Technicians two options for controlling the load.
- Option 1: You can use the 2100s DynoPro computer’s touchscreen arrow keys to control the load to the dyno.
- Option 2: Utilizing the arrow keys on the laptop with the ETS-XT software.
We also visited Keystone Tractor in Gap, PA for training.
Two Testing Options with AG.4X Dyno
The training at Keystone was an excellent opportunity for our Technician, Charlie, to test the AG.4X in PTO direction, but he was able to set up the AG.4X to run in the opposite direction with a stand-alone diesel engine.
Our AG.4X Dynamometer is the only dynamometer on the market equipped to run two different tests:
- Test tractors in PTO direction
- Go in the opposite and test stand-alone diesel engines at higher Rpm’s (see pic below)
Testing Diesel Engines
In order to test this way, you need a bi-directional valve and AW’s high-speed driveline assembly kit. This kit allows the PTO shafts to run up to 3000 Rpm and be balanced – while the normal PTO shafts with the 55 series driveline kit are only set to run up to 1500 Rpm and are not balanced.
A big thank you to all of our loyal clients on the East Coast. We enjoyed our time with you and look forward to many years serving your dealerships.
