Hunter launches new Revolution tire changer


Bridgeton, Missouri — January 7, 2014 — Hunter Engineering Company has produced the Revolution, which the company says is the industry’s most advanced fully automatic tire changer. 

The Revolution uses the same fully automatic process for all tire and wheel combinations, which Hunter says saves time on today’s diverse assemblies. The company also says the fully automatic process eliminates the need for a skilled operator. The Revolution’s touchscreen interface indicates the operator’s current step and monitors progress throughout the procedure. The touchscreen also stores 15 on-board videos. 
The fully automatic process places the operator away from the machine, increasing technician safety and eliminating pinch points.  Hunter says the Revolution also increases tire and wheel safety as all rim contact or near rim contact is plastic. The Revolution constantly monitors TPMS location and will not allow the tire to be mounted or demounted in an unsafe position. 
The leverless tool head demounting hook automatically deploys to catch and lift the bead and the mount head is designed to work with clad, raised spoke and other unique wheel designs. 
The Revolution features powered press arms for use when necessary for maximum control. Powered press arms adjust automatically when the diameter is set and power clockwise to prevent tire slippage. Damage free bead loosening rollers loosen even the most stuck on soft sidewall tires. 
Hunter Engineering is the global leader in alignment systems, wheel and tire service, brake service and inspection lane equipment.  Hunter equipment is approved and used by vehicle manufacturers, automobile and truck dealers, tire dealers and service facilities around the world.
Complementary, on-site demonstrations are available. Customers in North America may schedule demonstrations by contacting their local Hunter Representative at hunter.com/demos.
