PORTABLE SIDE SLIP TESTER

Toe-In and Toe-Out Check Side Slip.

Digital or Analog it's portable single side slip tester, to turn the wheelbarrow, it is leaned to one side and the wheelbarrow rolls around in the direction of the lean Just like when riding a motorcycle, the motorcycle is leaned into a corner, and the rolling action of the change in profile of the tyre, directs the motorcycle around the corner. The curved shape of the tyre means that the section in contact with the ground has a smaller radius than when upright, causing the tyre to roll in the direction of the lean, hence turning the wheelbarrow, or motorcycle. This is a similar action caused by Camber on a motor vehicle.

A Side Slip measurement and adjustment is purely a confirmation that the combinations of angles set during the wheel alignment, will provide a condition where the tyres will roll forward on the road surface without slipping sideways.

Note

Zero side slip is the most acceptable measurement. A maximum side slip of 5 metres per kilometre (or 5 millimetres per metre) is generally accepted globally as an Industry standard. Some Side Slip testers identify the slippage as Millimetres per Metre, instead of Metres per Kilometre.
