MD-250 Series

10.7" Rolls, 175-mph, 1,500-hp, 2WD Low-Profile Performance Dynamometer

MD-250 - A perfect combo of exceptional value and performance

For the fully equipped shop, no dyno offers more value or better in-house motor vehicle testing capabilities than the Mustang MD-250. For starters, the MD-250 can boasts a 1,500 horsepower measurement capacity at a top speed of 175 mph and a powerful air-cooled eddy current brake provides the MD-250 with 900-hp worth of loading capacity. Do not be fooled by its compact size – the MD-250 is a serious dynamometer with serious tuning capabilities.

The MD-250 uses its powerful eddy current power absorber, a frictionless, air-cooled braking device, to enable it to apply variable and steady state loading. A complete control and data acquisition system lets you design a wide range of tests or select from a host of pre-configured tests included with the standard system.

The 250′s traditional four roller design makes setting up vehicles a snap – simply drive onto the 250 and let your tires settle in between the rollers. The 250 can be installed above-ground or below-ground, it’s your choice. The above-ground system utilizes an optional premium platform and ramp system with an above-ground restraint kit. The addition of an axle pull down kit help keep the tires from slipping or trying to “climb out” of the rollers.
