Autodrain Shocker tool

Autodrain Shocker

Shocker is a stand alone compressed air operated combination suction and gravity system with a 90ltr storage capacity. A hydraulic tool punctures the shock absorbers allowing the majority of fluid to be sucked through the piercing tip, residual fluid is then extracted through the punctured hole with a suction probe. The tool incorporates a seal to minimise fluid leakage during the puncturing/suction process. A budget version is also avaialble.

The 4 shock absorbers from a vehicle can contain up to 1.5 liters of oil which must be drained. Shock absorbers are not built with drainage screws so draining them can be a problem.
SEDA provides a fast and cost effective solution with its new SOG². Powerful multi adjustable grip pliers secure the drilling unit to all sized shock absorbers while the specially designed drill bit creates a drainage hole for oil removal in seconds. Once the hole has been drilled the drill bit is retracted and the oil sucked out of the shock absorber through the SEDA SOG² to a secondary storage container. A suction hose is included with the delivery to remove any remaining oil below the drill hole.
The fully revised shock absorber evacuation unit is an evolution of the hugely successful SOG.
