Working on alternators isn't as simple as it used to be. New technology, combined with the increase of foreign units, makes it difficult for the rebuilder to keep up. That's where JIMCO comes in.

We not only provide you with the most reliable test bench on the market today, we provide the information to keep it updated. We DESIGNED it, we BUILD it, we SUPPORT it!

As a small company, JIMCO is able to provide service not found in larger organizations. There's no voice mail at JIMCO. You talk to real people, the same people who designed the test bench, built the test bench, people who can make decisions. There's a good chance your call will be taken by the company president, as he's more interested in alternators and generators than management reports.

In addition to an excellent piece of equipment, JIMCO feels our rebuilder customers deserve our respect. They deserve prompt, accurate answers to their questions. They deserve a machine that's made to last, has minimum down time, and can be kept updated. They deserve their money's worth!

Your test bench is the most important piece of equipment in your shop. Your business is literally riding on it. It should be the best.

It should be a JIMCO!

"BT" above indicates a "Basic" tester, more a concept than a model. There is NO difference between a Premium machine and a Basic machine. The difference is in the accessories. With a Premium machine you get a bigger accessory package. You purchase a "Basic" machine and add the accessories you want, or add the accessories later. That way you control the price.

‡ Continuous Duty Load Bank: Separate free-standing, fan-cooled, step load system that can be operated with no time limit. Loads are 12 volt @ 100, 200, 300, and 400 amps. 24 volt @ 100 and 200 amps. Carbon pile is used for additional loads under 100 amps. Example: 275 amps — step load is set for 200 amps, carbon pile is adjusted for additional 75 amps.

§ Continuous Duty Load Bank With Carbon Pile: continuous duty load laods are 12 volt @ 100, 200 amps, 24 volt @ 100, 200, 300, 400 amps load. Carbon pile is adjusted to share addition load. All SUPER DUTY carbon piles have (48) 1/4" X 6" X 6" carbon plates, fan cooled.
