---------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Isidore and Saul Sostak,

Just some feedback on the LaserTool laser-4762 diesel injector puller which we bought from Wingate recently:

We required the tool to remove diesel injectors from a Mercedes Benz Sprinter 313 CDi. These vehicles are well known in the motor trade for their injectors which can be very difficult to remove. After breaking a couple of original Mercedes Benz special tools on this job, it seemed like the only solution would be to remove the vehicle's cylinder head, to get the diesel injectors out.

Out of desperation, I searched the internet and came across LaserTools and Tool Connection, who referred me to Wingate. We ordered the tool from Wingate on 25 June 2012 and received it at our premises- after the package had to be re-sent from the UK - on 17 July 2012.

This was the first time that we placed an order with Wingate. There is always a bit of uncertainly about the quality of service, and the quality of the product, when one starts dealing with a new supplier. Apart from the delay with the shipment, which was something out of your hands, the whole ordering process was a positive experience for us.

Since this was a bit of an "emergency situation" (the vehicle was already in our workshop and would not start any more) the delay with the shipment was rather frustrating. Under normal business conditions, however, it really would not have been an issue.

After we received the tool on 17 July we put it to work on 18 July - and it did the job wonderfully!! The quality of the tool is great and it does exactly what it is supposed to, as per the very clear instruction sheet. By using the tool, we did not have to remove the cylinder head. This saved about 1 week in repair time. The cost saving for the customer would be the best part of R10 000.

The diesel injection specialist who overhauls the injectors for us was so impressed with the tool that he immediately asked me for your details.

Thank you very much - we will definitely be doing business with Wingate again in the future.

Kind regards,
