The Ranger R23AT NextGen™ Series tire changer is a high end tilt tower machine made for and ready to handle the needs of heavy volume tire shops. An internal clamping capacity of 24" and external clamping capacity of 22" makes this a super-size machine. A sturdy rugged frame, rigid 45mm hexagonal vertical shaft, and horizontal outrigger support arm made from the best hardened-steel eliminates flex during all tire service procedures. Bead seating and tire inflation is effortless using the Ranger’s TurboBlast™ portable bead seating system.
Check out these features:
- Forged Steel Foot Pedal Levers
Durable forged steel (instead of cast iron) foot pedal levers will stand up to everyday use and abuse in high-volume tire centers. Snap action spring return means precise and controlled operation.
- Multi-Link Rod Connections
Foot pedal control valves feature multi-link rod connections for non-binding plunger movement and precise bilateral control.
- Sealed Tight
All main-lead electrical terminals, auxiliary switches, and motor enclosures are sealed for air-tight, dust-free and contamination-proof protection offer minimal leads.
- High-Pressure Polyurethane Pneumatic Tubing
Ranger Next Generation™ tire changers feature high pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing with mirror smooth seamless bore for exceptional flow rates, high abrasion resistance, high burst tolerance and maximum kink resistance.
- Specially Engineered Drive-Belt
specially engineered drive-belt features convex sidewalls to distribute wear evenly while providing proper belt support for improved service life. Flex-bonded cords and flex-weave covers resist the effects of oil, heat, ozone, weather and aging.
- Maintenance-Free Gearbox
A newly designed, maintenance-free gearbox features a large oil and grease reservoir that helps provide efficient heat dissipation and improved lubrication for longer service life. Internal baffles and a constant seating stress flange gasket assure positive, leak-free venting. The rugged gear box enclosure is precision milled for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases and features precision helical gears that operate much more smoothly and quietly than typical spur gear transmissions. The rugged housing provides maximum strength for extreme durability under hard working conditions and greater precision under load during worm and gear alignment. High-strength, oversized worm and worm gears are straddle mounted between heavy-duty tapered roller bearings providing rugged dependability.
- RimGuard™ Wheel Clamp
Durable, hardened, alloy-steel RimGuard™ wheel clamps features internal and external multi-teeth jaws with vertical mounting bolts that make replacement fast and simple.
- Geometric Tabletop Design
The exclusive shape of our geometric tabletop is absolutely necessary when servicing high performance wheels and tires. It’s there to provide simplified bead lubrication and to make visual inspections of the lower bead during mounting and inflation easier than ever.
- High-Torque Electric Turntable
A new high-torque electric turntable drive features increased speed and reversible direction for quicker tire removal and installation. Controlled speed gives low profile and run-flat beads time to relax to reduce the risk of tire damage.
- Improved Electric Motor
Features the best of proven technologies, including rugged copper rotor construction, stronger high-quality ball bearings, thermal-cool epoxy insulation, and durable rolled steel frames. All motors are 110-208/230V and50-60 hertz capable.
- Balanced Flywheel
A balanced flywheel helps the machine run smoothly, reduces vibration, and helps minimize associated stress on other machinery components.
- Exclusive Bead-Breaker Design
A completely new and proprietary bead-breaker design features bilateral pneumatic accelerators for lightning fast bead-breaker speeds in both directions. A 100% stainless-steel cylinder body means no more worrying about moisture contamination from corrosion due to air source condensation. Other exclusive design features include a multi-axis, adjustable blade multiform-angle tire capacity, a large, dual-flange axle that eliminates blade flex and premature failure, and adjustable blade settings that help accommodate a larger variety of tire and wheel combinations.
- Enhanced Bead Breaker Arm
Enhanced bead breaker arm features rugged box frame construction that increases the mechanical strength and assures years of dependable service and performance. A large rubber bump-stop assures smooth return to help reduce shock loading and minimize wear on the pneumatic cylinder, guides and associated moving parts.
- Pneumatic Control Valves
Industrial-grade, 45-micron, pneumatic control valves feature die cast and machined bodies constructed from zinc and aluminum. High-performance polyurethane seals and self-lubricating Teflon® piston guides provide increased service life and performance at the highest level possible within almost every imaginable working condition. Valve plungers feature muffled extrication ports that direct any dirt or contamination accumulated on the outside perimeter of the spool to be automatically blown away each
time the valve goes into the release position.
- 26” External Wheel Clamping
The R26DT tire changers handles custom tire and wheel assemblies from 12-1/2”to 28” without the need for clumsy adapters or clamp adjustments. From simple factory steel wheels to super-sized delicate customs, multiple power-assist features will help you change tires with minimal effort.
- Wheel Restraint Device
A pneumatic nylon non-marring wheel restraint device assures wheels are safely secured to the turntable during inflation procedures.
- Up Front Controls
Up front controls and a sensible ergonomic design provide ease of use and more efficient operation.
- Tilt-Back Tower Design
Tilt-back tower design provides greater clearance and access for tire removal and inflation. Pneumatic-lock tool head stays positioned on the tower return for instant set up for like sets of tires and wheels.
- Aluminum Pneumatic Cylinders
Stainless-steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders are designed to reduce machine vibration and provide low-friction and long life operation. Internal end-of-stroke cushions are standard that help provide cushioning at the end of each full stroke to rescue wear on seals, wear band and piston rod. Permanent lubrication design provides outstanding service life.
- Alloy Steel Mount & Demount Head
A hardened alloy steel mount and demount head has a unique multidimensional shape that allows you to perform all changing functions with the tool head in the same position. The micro-smooth tool head surface glides tire beads effortlessly during mounting and demounting procedures to ensure costly tire damage is minimized.
- All The Extras Come Standard
Important wheel service accessories come standard like a large soap bucket with brush and a multi piece plastic wheel protector kit that includes turntable jaw covers, bead-breaker blade boots and specialized mount / demount head covers to help protect delicate wheels.
- Tire Iron & Bead Lever Tool
We throw in a hardened steel tire iron and bead lever tool to assist during all tire mounting and demounting operations.
- 45mm Spring Assist Hexagonal Vertical Tool Shaft
A rigid 45mm spring assist hexagonal vertical tool shaft combined with a hardened-steel horizontal outrigger support arm maintains perfect position of the mount-demount tool head during all tire service procedures to reduce the chance of expensive wheels getting damaged. All moving parts feature maintenance free linear guide bearings for easy adjustment of both vertical and horizontal wheel settings. The non-flex horizontal arm also features a hardened lower roller guide for smooth and controlled in and out movement. Integrated rubber bump stops assure smooth return during tilt-back operations to help reduce shock loading and minimize wear on tower guides and moving parts.
- Foot-Pedal Operated Tire Inflator
A simple to use tire inflation features foot-pedal operation and inflation hose with a sure-grip clip-on valve chuck enabling hands-free operation. Integrated air pressure dump valve enables you to lower tire pressure with a simple push of a button.
- TurboBlast™ Bead Seating System
Ranger tire changers feature the renowned TurboBlast™ bead seating system* that blasts a powerful air burst between the tire and rim to help seat stubborn beads fast. A durable, non-marring nylon discharge barrel features a contoured tab that locks securely on the edge of the rim for better control during air discharge between the tire and wheel. A welded-steel, eight-gallon surge tank is larger than competitive models for all the inflation power you need, when you need it.
