The Maxton Spring Compressor has been designed and manufactured 'in house' by our engineers, it is made from an aircraft grade aluminium alloy 6082 T6. All of the components of the frame of the compressor are then anodised to protect the product. The spring compressor has a very sturdy base, so there is no need to bolt the compressor down to a bench. This makes the Maxton spring compressor very portable, which is ideal for race teams. Because its machined from 6082 T6 it makes the spring compressor light weight and helps make it more portable.
The top collar of the spring compressor has an adjustable plate, this can be moved up and down to accommodate different length shock absorbers. The plate is held in place with two quick release pins, which can be removed and put back in seconds.
The top plate of the spring compressor has a purple insert in the centre, which locates the spring collar. The insert has an alloy outside and a plastic inside to protect the spring and spring collar. The spring compressor has been designed so you can swap the inserts to suit different size spring collars. We supply the spring compressor with the most popular insert, which covers 80% of shock absorbers, extra inserts can be bought or made to order if needed.
