Matco Tools Launches New Enhanced ScanAdvisor(TM) MD1072
Matco Tools' MD1072 Packed with Features, Functions and Value
STOW, Ohio, -- Are you a technician looking to get the job done right with money left over? The Matco MD1072 Enhanced ScanAdvisor is loaded with more functions than any competitor at half the price.*
Matco's MD1072 offers broad vehicle coverage, from chassis, body and power train to SRS (safety restraint system) and ABS (anti-lock brake system) coverage. Plus, the MD1072 translates terminology used in original equipment manufacturer tools into language that everyone understands. What does that mean? It's car talk, simplified for the right fix, the first time.
"We know that technicians want a tool packed with utility that is also a great value," said Michelle Specht, senior product manager, diagnostics at Matco Tools. "We developed this product to be easy to use and upgrade for long lasting application and utility."
The MD1072 is simple to use and works in seconds. Just plug it in to get started with a single button. The extra large screen allows technicians to view and access data, even multiple graphs, at the same time. Upgrading is as simple as a download and all the software and adaptors are included for no additional upfront costs.
The Matco MD1072 Enhanced ScanAdvisor also offers these advantages:
-- Save time with bi-directional / service mode 8 EVAP testing and enhanced live data.
-- Work on the majority of vehicles sold in the US in the last 30 years with OBD1 coverage.
-- Convenient handheld format to dramatically speed up the diagnostic process when compared to slow PC based OEM tools. That means more cars completed during the workday.
-- Unmatched aftermarket support with highly qualified, ASE certified technicians on hand to answer questions, guide set up from application to installation and provide aftermarket support.
"At Matco Tools, we know that service is imperative long after the sale," Specht said. "That's why we back up every ScanAdvisor tool with our exclusive Matco Carscan web site where technicians can access optional VIN specific fixes, conditions for setting codes, required parts and even the most likely fix for diagnostic trouble codes."
Matco's new MD1072 Enhanced ScanAdvisor is available in November through from Matco Tools distributors with a suggested retail of $849.99.
