Hunter Engineering has announced the ‘Revolution tire changer with WalkAway operation, was recognized as a 2018 Global Media Award winner at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
The Revolution tire changer with WalkAway operation frees up the operator to perform balancing procedures or other shop tasks during the longest portion of the tire changing process. WalkAway reduces operator effort and potential errors making it an automatic and autonomous solution to save technicians time, effort and mistakes. When paired with balancing, over 25 percent time savings is possible.
The SEMA Global Media Awards Program recognizes those companies that manufacture specialty equipment products and accessories that would have mass appeal to consumers in countries outside the United States. The products are voted on by a prestigious group of international journalists who serve as judges.
“The idea of customization and personalization has been growing throughout the world,” said Linda Spencer, SEMA Director of International and Government Relations. “Our goal is to have media experts from around the world determine which new products are likely to succeed in their home markets. The automotive specialty-equipment market is made up of enthusiasts who are passionate about the hobby, and so it’s exciting to see how their love for cars, trucks, and SUVs is impacting those throughout the world.”
This year’s program included 30 judges from 19 countries. Each judge carefully reviewed and evaluated nearly 3,000 product entries at the SEMA Show before selecting the products that they felt would resonate and appeal most to consumers in their home countries.
