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, over sized 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.
- Double Assist Tower
A powerful left-side assist tower features a multi-profile traveling drop-center tool that holds stubborn sidewalls in the drop-center area of thewheel, and a single lower bead lifting disc that can be used to unseat lower beads or to elevate tires for tool placement. A right-side assist tower features a power-drop top bead assist roller that helps position top beads at an optimum position during both removal and installation of tough side wall tires. An additional bead lifting disc provides even more tire handling capability. A tire iron slot built into the bead lifting discs gives operators additional leverage for difficult tire handling. These important tire shop tools dramatically reduce the effort required to change difficult, low-profile tires and helps minimize operator fatigue. Up front trigger control and articulating arm allows for variable tire and wheel configurations. A heavy-duty, trio-flange, cast-iron assist tower carriage features linear way bearings for durable maintenance-free operation
- 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.
