Western Wyo. College Getting New Auto Repair Tool

ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) - Western Wyoming Community College is getting a new tool that will allow students to test their auto repair work. The college board of trustees has approved spending $50,000 to purchase a chassis dynamometer for the college's automotive technology class.
The tool is like a car treadmill. Vice President for Student Learning Ken Fitschen says mechanics can strap vehicles onto the dynamometer and drive them to simulate real-world driving.
He says students are not allowed to drive shop vehicles on public roads because they're not licensed for driving and safety concerns.
