The multi-position wheel guard clamps take care of both external and internal clamping with a wide range for wheel handling.
  • Enhanced Power at Each Step: conveniently placed foot pedals ensure full control for operator. The tire changer has a 2 HP motor for multi-speed install performance, even on tires that have tough beads.
  • Wheel Protection Package: This equipment comes with all relevant wheel-protection tools that provide solid protection to the wheels during mounting and demounting processes. The package is particularly useful during the various stages of wheel service since it has bead loosener socks, tool bar covers and clamp covers to provide protection against metal-to-metal contact.
