The Benefits of Having a Diagnostic Tool for Construction Equipment

When construction equipment breaks down, has fault codes or goes into limp mode due to derating, it can be very frustrating. Not only is it costly to get a mechanic to come out and diagnose the problem, but you also risk making the situation worse if you try to bi-pass the issue. Having a diagnostic tool like Jaltest at your shop can save you time and money by easily plugging in and diagnosing the situation quickly. Let’s dive into why having this tool can be beneficial for your business needs.
