Hunter Produces New Heavy-duty Tire Changers
January 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Hunter's new TCX620HD and TCX640HD heavy-duty truck tire changers are designed to meet the specific needs of shops servicing the heavy-duty truck and commercial vehicle market.
The TCX620HD is a compact machine optimized
for over-the-road truck wheels, including single-wide tires. It combines an efficient electro-hydraulic power system with a unique mount-demount roller mechanism for fast, safe operation. The TCX620HD Tire Changer employs twin rollers to quickly and easily break beads and demount/mount tires without damage to the tire or rim.
The TCX640HD combines a range of features and capabilities to make wheel service for trucks, buses, tractors and other specialized equipment faster, easier and more profitable. It employs power systems and design features similar to the TCX620HD, but adds a standard clamping capacity of up to 46 inches and 56 inches using optional accessories.
All spindle and wheel carriage operations for both the TCX620HD and TCX640HD are controlled from a single control box. The TCX620HD control box is mounted to a pivoting arm that allows the technician to move about the tire changer as needed during service procedures. Controls for the TCX640HD are mounted to a movable pedestal that can be positioned anywhere around the tire changer for maximum safety and visibility of operations.
