Hunter Engineering Company introduces the new Auto34R Tire Changer, designed to service the broadest range of assemblies while reducing the opportunity for wheel damage through the operator.
The new mechanism clocks the rollers and tool head to match the curve of the wheel.
Direct rim tracking lowers the stress on beads during mount and demounts cycles, saving operator time and reducing the risk of wheel damage.
For shops with space constraints, the compact sliding chassis considerably reduces the need for floor space. Similarly, the bead press arm is centre-mounted for a smaller swing radius.
The new chassis also eliminates many moving parts, delivering efficient operation over a long service life.
The new model’s electric actuation and three-button control panel provide responsive adjustments, saving time, operator frustration and the risk of damage from crashing rollers into wheels.
” The unique design of the Auto34R tire changer eliminates many common tire changer wear points like cables, telescoping arms and locking cylinders, all while reducing the floor space needed to install it.” Said Jim Hudson, Hunter tire changer product manager.
