Hunter introduces next generation of tabletop tire changers
Hunter Engineering Co. has introduced a new generation of TCX57 tabletop tire changers.
The company says the new tabletop tire changers include several enhanced features for tremendous power and control.
Building on the TCX575 family, the TCX57 and TCX56 add the most powerful side shovel bead breaker and feature a large tabletop with one-touch diameter adjustments, according to Hunter. The TCX57 also has an enhanced second press arm that is faster and easier to use. The TCX56 is a conventional head version of the leverless TCX57.
The patented bead press system speeds and eases clamping, lubricating, demounting and mounting the toughest wheel and tire combinations. The company says the exclusive system centers the wheel and tire to ensure maximum service strength and rigidity.
The enhanced adjustable tabletop features a 6-30-inch clamping range. All four clamping jaws move simultaneously to reduce misclamping, and measurement marks further ease clamping.
The TCX57 is strong and capable, to handle a wide range of work, from 19.5 and skid steers to performance and run-flat tires. The powerful swing arm column reduces footprint by 30% compared to tilt columns systems.
