The invaluable range of tools and accessories now available from Ryco have been designed and developed with strong trade expertise input to make the role of the service mechanic easier.
With more than 80 years of experience, Ryco’s knowledge of what is required by a mechanic to complete a job effectively and efficiently is all part of the company’s on-going commitment to innovation and service.
As an example, it is now much easier to replace an in-tank fuel filter in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer’s service requirements thanks to the RST100 In-Tank Filter Removal Tool. There is also peace of mind that the filter locking rings, which can be easily damaged when removing a filter, are now available as a separate item.
The specialist in-tank tool kit is made of durable laser cut Nitrogenated hardened steel with anti-rust coating that comes in a durable kit containing a master tool plus 4 attachments.
Since the launch of the RST100 in-tank tool kit, a special attachment set has been released. RST101 provides 4 extensions to help with the removal of the in-tank fuel filter in Honda vehicles and more are under development.
Spin on oil filters are sometimes mounted in inaccessible places making removal and refitting difficult. To overcome this Ryco developed a kit that includes 8 cups designed specifically to suit all Ryco unique fluted spin on filters, spin on can sizes from 65mm to 101mm diameter, a 3/8” drive adjustable removal tool and a Hex wrench all contained in a durable purpose moulded plastic carry kit. “The RST200 kit has proved a popular addition to the workshop so we made the cups available for separate purchase” says Marketing Manager Melissa Simpson.
Ryco has addressed the ever-present problem of draining oil from difficult locations without making a mess with the simple RST300 Ryco Flexible funnel. “We examined the scenarios a mechanic will need to drain oil filters and saw an opportunity to make their interaction easier and safer” says Ms Simpson. “With the Ryco Flexi Funnel you can eliminate the need to fashion a piece of cardboard into a channel.”
The flexible plastic construction of the funnel with its aluminium core allows rigidity yet it can also easily be shaped to suit the job at hand. The Ryco Flexible Funnel is suitable for a range of fluids including oil and transmission fluid and simply wiped clean after use.
These popular timesaving filter-related Ryco service tools are available from leading Ryco stockists throughout Australia and New Zealand.
