Tilt test.

I thought you technical oriented guys may be interested in this picture I came across. All buses have to be tested, so they can tilt to a minimum of 28°.
This its an old photo of early tilt testing.
Health and safety...what's that? Cheesy

Re: Tilt test.

What puzzles me is, if you look closely there are two testers. One shows 28 degrees and other shows 38 degrees. Odd!!

Re: Tilt test.

Nor really
One is the platform and the other is the bus.
The difference being due to the suspension on the bus

Re: Tilt test.

The one attached to the bus is at a different angle, due to the suspension.

Quote from: 11110_110
looks like 28 and 45 to me ?

Due to it's low-resolution and excessive JPEG compression, the picture ain't 100% clear, so looks like the scale is 0-10-20-50-40-50-60, etc., so unless the method of counting from 0 to 100 has changed at somepoint, then logically speaking, that "50" looking number between 20 and 40 would actually be 30...
