JACUSTOMER-poiqt89t- :

So I would look for ServiceMaxx w/IC-4 at dieselsolution.com

Rudolph Diesel :

Yes you can get the cd there

JACUSTOMER-poiqt89t- :

I will look at your shop tool as well. We have a number of the Hand Held CAT tec would like to get rid of the hand held hence the original question; but it maybe since Cat isn't supporting the tec that we may have to move on to something else.

JACUSTOMER-poiqt89t- :

Thanks for your swift reply

Rudolph Diesel :

Than you I just went with the Jpro sence we work on everything it is a money saving tool!

Rudolph Diesel :

Here is what were using now http://www.jprofleetproducts.com/kits/jpro_desktopkit.asp
