PRESS RELEASE: Unior Tools

We continue our march in the professional workshop area, with smart and high-end solutions for the most demanding professional and home mechanics.

The Most Advanced Electric Repair Stand. Ever.

We have launched Electric Repair Stand 1693EL – designed and developed for technicians to work smarter, not harder. Lift the bicycle – even a heavier e-bike – with a simple push of a button and elevate your workshop to the next level.


The stand is constructed around a heavy-duty main column, which gives a great stability and at the same time conceals all of the wiring, so there´s nothing in the way when working on a bike. It’s strong enough to lift even the heaviest bicycles to the desired height with ease, so the bicycle is always in the most ergonomic position to work on. The 1693EL Electric Repair Stand is not just powerful, but also smart. It features endless height adjust, but it can also lift or descend a bike automatically with a push of a button. It also stops on its own when bike reaches the ground. Thanks to the travel adjust limiters you can limit its travel so it always stops at the desired height. A built in safety system keeps the technician and the bicycle on the stand safe and makes sure nothing goes wrong.




THE MIGHTIEST OF ALL TOOL CHESTS IS HERE

When only the strongest and the most robust is good enough, the time comes for our Heavy-Duty Tool Chest 991HD. It will hold the heaviest of tools and parts with ease, in fact it’s so strong that an average adult man can stand on the open drawer. He can even invite a friend to “stand-on-a-drawer-party”!

991HD tool chest offers maximum possible capacity for workshops where you want to keep a lot of heavier tools/parts in compact space. It was designed in cooperation with the leading bicycle manufacturer and thoroughly tested in real life situations.

Two smaller drawers can hold up to 90 kg each, each of the four bigger ones can hold twice as much! That means total capacity of 900 kilograms and total volume of 522 liters! Perfect for production line or busy workshop – real life scenario even showed that you can fit approximately 5-6 meters worth of parts on the shelves in just one of these chests. It’s most useful for wear & tear parts like chains, sprockets, brake pads, tubes, bearings, cables, housings, small bits, etc.




100% extension drawers slide on the high quality ball bearing slides and are equipped with central locking system. They even feature innovative safety system that allows only for one drawer to be opened at once, which prevents chest from tipping over.

Heavy-Duty Tool Chest 991HD is made out of premium PLUS sheet metal and is painted with eco friendly colors of Qualicoat quality standard. Drawers can be customized with partitions and dividers according to your needs; dividers have a dedicated easy to see area for decals and bar codes, so you can quickly organize and find parts.

MODULAR WORKBENCHES – SOLUTION FOR THE MODERN WORKSHOP

We are introducing new offers in 990 series workbenches, now with more storage & work options and integrated power plugs. Workbenches of the highest quality are ready for the most demanding mechanics out there and will last for years & years. This claim is backed by our lifetime warranty and made possible with the use of premium sheet metal, top quality ball bearings for drawers, wooden bench top & other top materials.



Two meters wide module gives you lot’s of space on the bench top, while all the tools will be stored in the wide tool chest with 6 drawers and on the holders on the metal wall. Module also has two top cabinets with enough storage capacity for everything you need at hand and holder for paper towels. There is even a holder for laptop, so you can have all the specifications, instructions & video tutorials at hand.

Model 990MA18 is 1,5 meters wide, but packs lots of features in the small space. The most interesting part is happening under the bench top where you find tool case, big cabinet, paper towel holder, two pull-out garbage containers (one accessible via flap doors) and power reels with return spring. One with air hose, one with electric cable, so you’ll easily work with your power tools and/or charge the ebike while doing maintenance work on it.




TOOL ROLLS

The tool wrap is available in Pro and Home versions, with both of them available as a roll only or in the set with a selection of our premium tools. The difference between the versions is in the size and number of tools that you can store.

- Side pockets with full-length closure for small parts or additional tools.
- Additional elastic straps for even more tools.

 Electric?!
1.You have to EARN your repairs!
2. This spells the end of lbs access for real stands!
3. "Bicycle stand" is a bunch of baloney because we all know that motor+stand=motorstand!!!
4. The only time I will accept these as a viable option for other people to use and enjoy is when they have a medical condition requiring it!
Did I got them all? Oh wait...
5. Lazy bike mechanics should just get a motorcycle stand since that's the same thing!

 My shop (specifically my personal bench) uses Park’s electric stand. I wouldn’t be so against it if I were you. I’ve found it to have multiple advantages over static stand.

Ebikes are extremely heavy and lifting multiple ebikes over the course of a day can be detrimental to your body.

I use it for fork over hauls and can lower it closer to ground to avoid bath oil splashing around when dropping lowers. Also helps when adding oil.

The same can be said for hydro brake adjustments giving you a clear line of sight by moving the height instead of changing the pitch for pad alignment.

The height flexibility advantage cannot be overstated.

Also the T bar above has proven very useful. First you can put wheel hooks to get wheels off the floor when removed from the bike. Second, with my shop’s high ceiling having good lighting was always a challenge. I mounted two shop lights to the bar and now have plenty of light for both sides of the bike that are out of the way.

Yes they are expensive and I would never recommend for private setups. But for shops that do a high volume of service they work great! I was skeptical at first too but I’ve grown to really appreciate the advantages it gives.

 For e-bikes?

 @Jacquers: most likely, I can only imagine how old it gets heaving 40+ lbs bikes into a traditional stand over and over again when working in a shop that rents e-Bikes. Park Tools had their own electric pro stand years ago and developed it (most likely) for the same reason.

 Love the production video! Most if the time, consumers only get to see the shiny finished products. Most production facilities aren't shiny at all, but this is where all the hard work is done. Good to see that for a change. It's quite special that Unior is still making it's own products in Europe, instead of just buying it overseas. Way to go!

 FINALLY! I’ve been waiting forever to hold a “stand-on-a-drawer-party” It was only my lack of durable workshop storage that was preventing it from becoming a reality!!!

@Kramz epic workshop Seth has created there, love it

 good to read some article about the "darkside" room tooling ;-) . will be happy to see other "pro" tooling like vartools . I'm still from a personal point of view disappointed about Silvertool that cannot serve more than a day.
  • 2 0
 Var doesn't produce, they just develop and manufacture in China.

Nice stand, but a little bit too slow. The pneumatic Bicisupport is faster, but the clamp quality is so, so poor and fragile. By the way I tried the Unior stand at Eurobike and I blocked it on the lower position, never found how to reset it :-)
  • 6 0
 @jackyboy: ctrl+alt delete ... Smile Just kidding. If you used the travel adjust limiter and you wanted the stand to go up, you needed to hit stop and up button. If you would push the limiter further down, the stand would automatically go lower.
In case you didn't set the limiter and the bike got overloaded or stuck, there is a reset button in at the top of the column. Sounds complicated but it's super fun once you use it for a few times.

In terms of speed - the key thing is, while the bike is going up or down, you don't have to wait. You can grab a tool or do something else.

Thanks for coming to test it. And, our stand is proudly made in Slovenia, Europe.

 Really jealous of, "Seth's Bike Hacks" tool box. It's massive, and sweet.
  • 3 1
 Home Depot. It is a Husky toolbox. $1K USD. But there are also many more Husky ones that are great and much less money. I have a few Husky garage stuff and they are awesome.

 @tacklingdummy: The husky tool boxes are terrible... US general from harbor freight is actually significantly better and more robust for the equivalent price. If money is no problem, then go all out on a snap on like I did.
  • 3 0
 @brassinne: Harbour freight not available in Canada, at least for a reasonable price. And I realized saying this makes me open to retaliation from mobs with flaming torches and pitchforks, but Snap-On is overpriced bs.
  • 1 0
 @spaceofades: I suppose it depends on what reasonable is. For example, here in murica (lol) the biggest box that us general makes is a 72 inch for $1000. For comparison, mine wich is a 73 inch snap on retails for just shy of $10000. But with discounts and rebates and sweet talk, I paid $5400. And made small weekly payments. I could sell it right now for an easy $4500, just because it says snap on. If you want to talk about insanely priced tool boxes, look at hazet. A german company that makes insanely good quality tools at insanely high prices. Bottom line is, harbor freight makes pretty good tool boxes for the price. Having seen several in action and having owned one myself, the price to quality ratio is hard to beat. The only real issue with the us general stuff is parts. It's virtually impossible to get service for your box after the sale. Snap on however, I just call my sales rep and his big butt is fixing it for me free of charge.
  • 1 0
 @brassinne: Snap-On has undeniably resale value. A coworker of mine was looking to get a pretty basic, I think around 27" cart and was considering US General. Not sure how he planned on getting it to Canada, but all in it was something like $300 shipping, for not a very big box. Shame, the general stuff looks like good value.

 What makes the axs chain so different that it needs different guides in the chain breaker?
  • 1 0
 It's taller and thinner, so it doesn't like to sit correctly in a breaker, so the pin would hit too low and damage the plates as you pushed the pin out.

 Axs Road chain has different sized rollers! Eagle chain still uses regular chain tool.

 I think the e-stand has more to do with a weight limit that a worker is allowed to lift per day in most EU countries.

 @GriefTheBro: Please explain.Weight limit per day?

 @nug12182: Most countries, including the US and Canada have government organizations that protect workers and their rights. That’s why most consumer products are maxed out at 50lbs here in Canada... otherwise it’s an assisted or 2 person lift.
