May 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Ken-Tool is now offering the 31444 Ken-Tool Mega AirBlast bead seating tool, designed to seat the bead of tubeless tires to the rim.
The Ken-Tool Mega AirBlast uses pressurized air to uniformly force the tireÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s bead onto the rim before inflating the tire to the correct pressure.
The tool uses pressurized air to uniformly force the tire's bead onto the rim before inflating the tire to the correct pressure. The Mega AirBlast tool is suitable for use on ATVs, autos, light and heavy-duty trucks, plus agricultural tractor tires. It has an operating maximum pressure of 165 psi.
A portable 5 gallon air reservoir tank is the center of the 31444 Ken-Tool Mega AirBlast tool. A heavy-duty, 2 inch diameter tube with a ball valve carries the air to the insertion point between the bead and the rim. An air pressure gauge and a safety release valve are included for operator convenience and safety.
Ken-Tool recommends using a Ken-Tool Tire Inflation Cage in conjunction with the Mega AirBlast bead seating tool for technician safety.
