Features




Optional Safety Restraint Arm

Optional Safety Restraint Arm*

  • Positively restrains wheel and tire assembly to the tire changer during the inflation process
  • Reduces potential for injury by the unlikely event of wheel or tire failure
  • Simple swing-arm design easily swings in from the left
  • Allows the technician to quickly and safely perform tire inflation without disturbing the tire changing procedure
  • Positioning safety interlock switch ensures that the SRA is centered on the wheel and tire assembly before the inflation process can begin
  • Anti-Rotation Lock prevents the SRA from moving during the inflation process or in the event of an accidental explosion
  • Gravity lock engages automatically without operator intervention and ensures the wheel is secured prior to inflation

Ergonimically-Positioned Bead Breaker Control

Ergonimically-Positioned Bead Breaker Control

  • Pedal is positioned away from the bead breaker with a guard, preventing the operator from accidentally stepping on and activating it while standing next to the bead breaker

Integrated Pressure Limiter

Integrated Pressure Limiter

  • Stops air flow once pressure has reached 55 PSI (3.5 Bar), thereby preventing accidental tire over-inflation

Optional Pneumatic Bead Assist

The optional Pneumatic Bead Assist features a three-piece design with a Top Roller, Pressing Foot, and Lifting Disc. Each piece provides a specialized function that assists a single operator in mounting/demounting low-profile and high-performance tires.

Pneumatic Bead Assist
  • Assists operator with bead lubrication, wheel clamping, lower bead lifting, re-loosens beads, and allows easy one-operator mounting of the stiff upper bead
  • EAA0329G34B
  • Top Roller:
    • Demounting - Presses down on the tire sidewall, provides clearance for easy positioning of the mount/demount head, upper bead lubrication, and easy insertion of the demount tire lever
    • Mounting - The roller retains the bead under the nose of the mounting head. Works in conjunction with the Pressing Foot to keep the tire bead below the wheel drop center as the tire rotates 360° during the mounting process
  • Pressing Foot:
    • Tire Clamping - Presses the wheel in the center hole which allows the lower bead to clear the wheel’s rim for easy clamping
    • Tire Mounting - Presses the upper tire sidewall into the drop center and holds it in place during the 360° rotation required for mounting the upper bead is complete. Allows one-technician operation for mounting stiff sidewall, run-flat and high-performance tires
  • Lifting Disc: Loosens lower beads that often re-seat. To remove the upper bead, the lower bead must be free to move vertically during demounting. Provides an "extra hand" to lift and hold wide tires to facilitate insertion of the demount lever to remove the lower bead
  • For better cosmetic protection of expensive tires and wheels, an optional adjustable bead breaking disc can be fitted to the Pneumatic Bead Assist. This disc allows for breaking the tire beads using 360° tire rotation while the disc gently presses the tire bead dynamically, thus preserving tire and wheel
