Hunter’s new Ital­ian tyre changer

Motor Equipment News - - TYRE EQUIPMENT -

A new and com­pet­i­tively price Hunter tyre changer has been in­tro­duced to the New Zealand mar­ket by Stocks Equip­ment.

The new Hunter TCX52 is a heavy­duty, high-per­for­mance, Ital­ian-made, tilt-col­umn 22-inch tyre changer that sells for $6,150 plus GST.

“That’s a great price for a tyre changer that has all the great fea­tures that New Zealand tyre out­lets are look­ing for,” says Wil­liam Sin­gle­ton, gen­eral man­ager of Stocks Equip­ment.

Built in Italy to Hunter’s ex­act­ing stan­dards, the TCX52 com­bines Amer­i­can tech­nol­ogy with Euro­pean pro­duc­tion flair and eye for de­tail.

As the lat­est mem­ber of Hunter‘s range of ta­ble-top tyre chang­ers, the TCX52 fea­tures a fast and fa­mil­iar con­ven­tional ta­ble-top clamp­ing style with Pow­erOut bead break­ers that pro­vide tremen­dous power and con­trol, sim­pli­fy­ing the mount­ing and de­mount­ing pro­cesses. It’s fast and sim­ple to use.

Like the re­cently in­tro­duced TCX54, this new TCX52 tyre changer has a bead blaster tank fit­ted to the back of the ma­chine, which pro­vides air to the turntable. It comes with a 230V sin­gle phase mo­tor, which negates the need to pro­vide ex­pen­sive three-phase power.

As with the TCX54, it has the same left hand or right bead press (help arm) op­tions. There are two help arm op­tions of­fered to cus­tomers in New Zealand by Stocks Equip­ment to as­sist tyres shops to more eas­ily ac­com­mo­date low pro­file tyres. The choice in­cludes Hunter’s usual bead press sys­tem on the left hand side, with two disc-style mount­ing rollers with a cam and a lift­ing disc, or the tra­di­tional New Zealand right-hand­side help arm, with a mount head roller and bead press with a lift­ing disc. The breaker pad is also fixed, so no is­sues with un­due move­ment dur­ing tyre chang­ing op­er­a­tions.

The new TCX52 com­ple­ments the other Hunter tyre changer mod­els car­ried by Stocks Equip­ment, led by the top of the range model, the Revo­lu­tion, the world’s first truly fully au­to­matic tyre changer, which also ex­tends to the in­dus­try-lead­ing Hunter wheel align­ers and Hunter wheel bal­ancers which have re­cently been re­duced in price due to the strength of the NZ dol­lar.

Other Hunter tyre changer mod­els in­cludes the TCX56 (non lev­er­less) and TCX57 (lev­er­less), both of which have a clamp­ing range of 15cm (six inches) to 76cm (30 inches), as they have stan­dard clamp­ing ac­ces­sories that ex­tends the range to 76cm or re­duces to only 15cm.

Th­ese TCX mod­els are made for Hunter in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the num­ber one man­u­fac­turer of Ital­ian made tyre chang­ers but are strength­ened and mod­i­fied to Hunter En­gi­neer­ing’s strict stan­dards and come with a full three-year war­ranty. All Hunter tyre chang­ers are de­signed to elim­i­nate dam­age to al­loy wheel rims.
