The AIDCO 550E-Series is our top of the line, dedicated, transmission test stand.  It’s a comprehensive test system with everything needed for testing automatic or power shift direct and remote mounted transmissions and torque converters used in commercial or off-highway applications. Based on the proven performance and reliability of our popular Model 450E transmission test stand, this quiet, compact test system keeps vehicle downtime to a minimum by greatly reducing critical failures on the road or in the field. In most cases, performance verification testing on this machine will eliminate the cost of additional dis-assembly and repair for rebuilt or serviced components.

The AIDCO 550E-Series is our top of the line, dedicated, transmission test stand.  Its a comprehensive test system with everything needed for testing automatic or power shift direct and remote mounted transmissions and torque converters used in commercial or off-highway applications.

The Model 550E uses a variable speed, high-efficiency electric motor and drive to simulate the engine driving the transmission. Based on the proven performance and reliability of our popular Model 450E transmission test stand, this quiet, compact test system keeps vehicle downtime to a minimum by greatly reducing critical failures on the road or in the field. In most cases, performance verification testing on this machine will eliminate the cost of additional dis-assembly and repair for rebuilt or serviced components.

Features

  • Equipped with 30 HP, 0-60 GPM (0-227 L/min) VFD Controlled, 600 PSI (41 Bar) pressurized main oil supply circuit.
