– A new model of the GFTE family


With a fantastic Operator’s environment, the GFTE built into the Peugeot 5008 is by far one of the most operational friendly friction testers available on the market.

Direct access of the measuring touch PC from driver’s seat and with easy operation of the FTMS measuring program, the Operator is in full control during the complete measurement.

The front wheel driven Peugeot 5008 is equipped with an Automatic 8 speed transmission with a various selection of gasoline or diesel engines.


The GFTE vehicle friction tester, built into the Peugeot 5008 SUV, is one top of the line quality self-contained surface friction tester, designed to measure the friction between the GFTE’s measurement wheel and the surface of the ground.

The main components consist of a measurement wheel with a raising and lowering mechanism (hydraulic system), a chain transmission for measuring the skidding force of the measurement wheel via one torque sensor, one drive shaft from the right rear reference wheel of the car to the chain transmission, the measurement wheel and a Windows based touchscreen computer system. The measurement wheel is fitted with a standardized measuring tire, as stipulated by ICAO and the FAA.

Optional: Water system

One 550 liters water tank is an integral part of the GFTE water system. The water flow is controlled by one electrical driven mechanical pump and one electrical valve to supply the correct water film via a nozzle in front of the measuring wheel.
