Draper Tools: Expert hydraulic spring compressor

Published:  08 July, 2018

Part of the Draper Expert range is a powerful, two tonne hydraulic spring compressor, designed for the professional workshop.
This safely compresses springs during repair and maintenance of vehicle suspension strut and damper assemblies. Its all-steel construction securely clamps and easily compresses a multitude of coil springs for safe and speedy dismantling of suspension units.
A heavy duty, full safety cage is fitted for added user protection and the clamps and yokes are fully adjustable, securely gripping a wide range of spring configurations and diameters. The compressor’s powerful hydraulic pump provides a totally independent operation, allowing for use without the need for electric or air power sources.


The compressor is also entirely mobile, meaning it can easily be moved around the workshop, on its wheels, to the job as needed.
The Draper expert hydraulic spring compressor comes supplied with three interchangeable yokes and 30-70mm fixing jaw.

    The KYB Suspension Solutions App is available to download for free from the App store and Google Play and has two functions. Part one helps the technician explain to the motorist what issues have been identified with their vehicle’s suspension and which components need to be replaced. It sends the driver a text message with links to video clips which explain the dangers and risks associated with worn shock absorbers, coil springs, mounting and protection components. Part two showcases the completed repair which a garage has carried out on a customer’s vehicle. It can send a text message to the driver with a before and after photo of the work carried out.

    Steering and suspension parts are at the heart of what Optimal does and its programme includes more than 4,500 part numbers which can be found on TecDoc and MAM, with over 85% of part numbers available from UK stocks, the rest coming from its German warehouses. Every part of the front and rear suspension is available, from joints to tie rod assemblies, control arms and stabilisers. The firm is a TUV approved supplier, with its parts undergoing regular inspections throughout the entire manufacturing process. The firm continues to expand its product range and its next target for the steering and suspension range is over 5,000 different part numbers.

  • Replace in pairs 

    To prevent compromising safety, TRW is promoting the message to replace shock absorbers in pairs. The firm conducted tests with a differing damping force on one shock, which showed a significant improvement in car performance when they were replaced in pairs rather than individually, especially when a vehicle is changing lanes or under emergency braking. The firm has been campaigning for years to have the shock absorber classified as a safety critical part and included in the annual roadworthiness tests. Belgium has adopted this stance already.
