New from Hunter is their TCX550 Tabletop Tire Changer with added features for servicing a wider range of tires and wheels. Features include:
- A patented Bead Press System (BPS) that allows for servicing standard steel wheels, run-flats, or low-profile tires on oversized alloy wheels. The wheel-centered Bead Press System also aids in blocking and pressing stiff low-profile tire beads into deep drop-center wheels. BPS can be used on custom wheels up to 28" in diameter.
- An automatic swing-arm that saves time by not having to reposition the tire or wheel. By pushing a button, the swing arm locks to a preset diameter and width for same-sized wheels.
- The tabletop clamping system can handle wheels from 13" to 28" more safely.
- The XT-out table offers improved access to the bottom bead, while ensuring rigidity for larger wheels.
- A 2-speed drive system that operates at a lower speed, but with greater torque to prevent wheel and tire bead damage.
