Two Hunter Engineering Co. products were named winners in the PTEN People’s Choice Awards.
The People’s Choice Awards are voted on by readers of PTEN Magazine, following the selections made by an expert panel of judges from the PTEN Innovation Awards.
The 1708-T Alignment Guide – which was also a winner of an Innovation Award – won the PTEN People’s Choice Award. The guide is updated twice yearly and serves as the “go-to source for service advisors quoting work,” according to Hunter officials.
The document guides shops on vehicle suspension adjustments and electronic resets or advanced driver assistance systems. It is now available on the HunterNet 2 Portal at no charge.
The other winner is the BL Series of bench lathes with HunterNet 2 connectivity.
The HunterNet 2 is a free customer portal developed for under-car service operators to access actionable performance data for all their Hunter-connected equipment.
With new connectivity, shop owners and managers will be able to view before and after-cut results for rotors and drums online; initial runout; monitor lathe usage and counts; and track equipment ROI in real-time. Consumers will also be able to order consumables 24/7 and access the online user manual.
