Snap-on Receives Two MOTOR Magazine Top 20 Tool Awards

KENOSHA, Wis., Oct 19, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Snap-on Incorporated (NYSE:SNA), a leading global innovator, manufacturer and marketer of tools, diagnostics, equipment, software and service solutions for professional users, announced it recently won two MOTOR Magazine Top 20 Tool Awards for its VERDICT(TM) Diagnostic and Information System and its RFV 2000(TM) Diagnostic Wheel Balancer. The winners were chosen by MOTOR Magazine's technical editors as innovative products that help make the jobs of professional shop owners and technicians easier, while enabling them to fix their customers' cars and light trucks more accurately and quickly.

"We are very excited to be recognized by MOTOR Magazine for our latest industry-leading innovations in diagnostics and equipment," said Tom Ward, Snap-on president, Repair Systems and Information Group. "The technology behind these products reflects the unique connection Snap-on has with its customers and the advantage that insight gives us in meeting their rapidly evolving demands for faster, more precise solutions."

VERDICT Diagnostic and Information System:

The new VERDICT diagnostic and information system is unlike anything else available in the industry. This modular hand-held device provides technicians the freedom to move freely around the shop while still observing diagnostic readings and repair information. The innovative tablet features a touch screen display with Windows(R) operating system, Wi-Fi, one-touch navigation and long-range Bluetooth technology, which allows technicians to view all readings, access codes, live data, component tests and web resources from anywhere in the shop.

RFV 2000 Diagnostic Wheel Balancer:

The RFV 2000 Diagnostic Wheel Balancer utilizes an industry-first method of obtaining a complete profile of the tire and wheel in one spin cycle. It uses patented optical imaging to analyze the tire and wheel interactions with the road, documenting the wear and shaping of the tire. This all new measuring process provides a comprehensive analysis of the tire and wheel assembly allowing technicians the ability to quickly and accurately diagnose problems, including the need for wheel alignment, wheel damage, or to predict when tire replacement will be required.
