“There is really no comparison in the quality and performance of our new digital borescope,” said Dan Batassa, category manager for Snap-on.  “With the BK6500, service technicians will get sharper image transmissions that will help them diagnose the problem area on a vehicle much faster and more efficiently than any analog borescope.  The BK6500 is a great value for professional technicians and is available at a lower price than the competition’s analog model.”
