Default Al-Ko AKS 2000 state of wear

"Richard" wrote in message

Just recently spoken to Al-Ko so checked these points off also. here is
their answers

I have two questions hopefully someone may be able to help.

1. State of wear 'ZU' indicator on coupling handle.

Is this visual inspection carried out with the coupling made to the tow
vehicle (green indicator visible) and with the coupling handle


Answer: Yes

2. State of wear of friction pads.

Is this with coupling made and coupling handle fully down, and then judge
when you first encounter resistance as you push the stabiliser handle

At this juncture check position of indicator (vertical line) within the
marked 'new - worn' wear range.

Answer is Yes _but_ only apply very light pressure as you move the
stabiliser handle down. Suggested method is use just two fingers only _not_
whole hand. In their opinion many people mis-judge the wear of the pads by
being over zealous, and some check with the arm horizontal (fully down)
which is totally incorrect.

Cheers ...... Richard

And again
