Bosch® ESI Truck 3824A

The Bosch® 3824A is the tool for heavy duty truck diagnostic for everything. With the ESI Truck, technicians have the ability to perform bi-directional tests and make changes on every truck they diagnose. Using the Bosch® ESI Truck is made simple with the intuitive interface and powerful software that performs at the same level as OEM or dealer software. It can also be used for a wide range of Off-Highway vehicles (Agriculture, Construction, and others) with the addition of the 3824CBL-UPG Off-Highway Upgrade Kit.
