Comparation of Autel MS908CV vs MS908 CV vs 909CV
Autel has a series of diagnostic products specifically for Commercial Vehicles, including MS906CV, MaxisysCV (MS908CV) and 909CV, so what is the difference between these three products? Today let's compare the MS906CV, MaxisysCV (MS908CV) and 909CV.
Before we start, let's understand Autel's classification of Commercial Vehicles.
①3.5t and above trucks, buses, RVs, special vehicles (fire engines, etc.)
②Below 3.5t are mainly diesel vehicles
Off-road vehicles/industrial engines: agricultural, construction, engineering (currently not supported, but a follow-up effort)
Autel's products currently do not support the diagnosis of non-road vehicles and industrial engines, so this part can basically be ignored. Autel CV focuses on providing diagnosis for trucks, buses, RVs, and special vehicles (such as fire engines, etc.) over 3.5t. Below 3.5t, mainly diesel vehicles, Autel's CV diagnostic tools can be used for some models, and most other series of Autel diagnostic panels can also do this part of the function, this depends on personal needs before purchasing, if the power supply voltage is 24V The car must choose the CV series of diagnostic products.
Next, let's get to the point and compare Autel ms908CV vs MS908 CV vs 909CV.

In fact, the high-end positioning of the ms909cv can also be seen from the hardware configuration. Let's take a look at the important functional differences between the three.
Comparison of overall functions of CV series
|Basic Functions||√||√||√||ECU information, code reading, code clearing, data flow, frozen frame, etc|
|Maintenance Functions||√||√||√||Oil Reset, Brake bleed, DPF, Injector, SAS, Throttle and more than 30 functions|

As can be seen from the above table, MS906CV only supports basic maintenance functions, while MS909CV supports most functions. Of course, it is regrettable that the entire CV series products do not support programming.
If you are a technician who needs more maintenance, then MS906CV is your ideal choice; if you are an individual repair shop, MS908CV must not be missed; if you have more heavy-duty trucks that need frequent maintenance, then 909CV is your best choice. Good choice. Of course, if you are an avid DIY enthusiast and don't care about the price, you can choose 909CV boldly.
