Snap-on Tools, a subsidiary of Snap-on Inc., has introduced a new digital borescope, the BK6500.
“With the BK6500, service technicians will get sharper image transmissions that will help them diagnose the problem area on a vehicle much faster and more efficiently than any analog borescope. The BK6500 is a great value for professional technicians and is available at a lower price than the competition’s analog model,” said Dan Batassa, category manager for Snap-on.
The new Snap-on Advanced Digital Borescope (BK6500) features:
* 4.3 inch (109 mm) diagonal LCD screen for enhanced viewing that has a 40 percent larger viewing area than previous model
* Ability to confirm mechanical problems before disassembly
