What is the HDDOR tool?
HDDOR HGST 3.5” Ramp Set is a set of head replacement tools which can be used to safely and easily replace heads on the most of the modern 3.5” Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (HGST) hard drives which “park heads” on a ramp. Set contains 5 of head replacement tools: HGST 3.5” Ramp p1w, HGST 3.5” Ramp p2w, HGST 3.5” Ramp p2, HGST 3.5” Ramp p3 and HGST 3.5” Ramp p5 which are used together with of HGST 3.5''Support Tools.
HGST 3.5” Ramp p1w
This head replacement tool can be used on 3.5” HGST hard drive models PLAT, PLA, VLSA, VLAT and others which have 1 platter and with their heads parked on a white ramp with one track (one track - space for two heads).
HGST 3.5” Ramp p2w
This tool is used on HGST 3.5” hard drives models VLAT, VLSA, DLAT, DLA and others with 2 and 1 platters, which park their heads on a white ramp with two or three tracks.
HGST 3.5” Ramp p2
HGST 3.5” Ramp p2 head replacement tool can be used on 3.5” HGST hard drive models CLA, GLAT, GLA, SLA, DLE and others which have 2 and 1 platters and their heads parked on orange ramp with one or two tracks.
HGST 3.5” Ramp p3
HGST 3.5” Ramp p3 head replacement tool can be used on the 3 and 2 platter HGST drives which include models ALA, BLA, SLA and others. These drives have their heads parked on a orange ramp with three tracks.
HGST 3.5” Ramp p5
HGST 3.5” Ramp p5 head replacement tool can be used on 3.5” HGST hard drive models KLA, KLAT, ALA, ALE, ALS and other models which have 5, 4 and 3 platters and their heads parked on both - white and orange ramps with five tracks. This tool is used together with HGST 3.5'' Support tool.
HGST 3.5” Support tool
HGST 3.5” Support tool is designed to support head (and magnet) replacement process on 3.5” HGST hard drive models KLA, KLAT, ALA, ALE, ALS and other models which have 5, 4 and 3 platters and their heads parked on both - white and orange ramps with five tracks. The upper and lower magnet of these drives are connected and can't be disassembled by classical methods. This means that heads must be disassembled together with the magnets. Support tool secures position of heads in relation to both magnets during heads replacement process.
They cannot solve incompatibility issues. They can only support hard disk drives, with easy and safe head replacement.
Head replacement tools (head combs) offer a safe and easy way to replace the magnetic heads of hard disk drives. These tools can ensure a non-contact head replacement.
That means there is no contact between the heads, or between heads and platters when you disassemble donor heads and install heads on malfunctioning hard disk drives.
Heads can be transferred from donor to malfunctioning hard disk drives in a few easy steps. During the process of head replacement, heads do not touch each other or make any contact with the platters. Each head change tool is designed for specific brands and models of hard drives, and these tools are not generic since mechanics of different hard drives doesn't match.
These tools offer as one-piece, not as a pair.
The list of tools may be updated as we get information from the market. HDDOR isn’t responsible if the producer change the architecture of a drive from the list above.
