OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
STEP ONE
4. With the tire/wheel in position, place the bead breaker
blade directly on the bead as close to the rim as
possible, paying close attention to not contact the
sidewall or wheel itself.
( BEAD LOOSENING AND DEMOUNTING )
NOTE:
When first operating this machine it is recommended that
you use a steel wheel and a used tire to familiarize
yourself with the operation and use of controls. REMOVE
ALL WEIGHTS before servicing tire. Weights left on the
wheel can cause unlevel clamping and may damage
wheel and/or machine.
NOTE:
If the blade is improperly positioned, damage to the tire
or wheel can occur. If the sidewall starts to collapse
during the bead breaking process, STOP and reposition
the blade.
5. Depress the middle pedal ( BLADE CONTROL) to
actuate the blade and loosen the bead. Slowly apply
pressure until the bead is unseated from the rim.
( See Fig.3 )
1. Deflate the tire by removing the valve core. Allow ALL
AIR TO ESCAPE. DO NOT try breaking the bead until
the air has completely deflated from tire. ( See Fig. 1 )
Fig. 3
Fig. 1
6. Rotate the wheel by 1/3 and repeat the process on the
same side of the wheel. Rotate the wheel another 1/3
and repeat the process until the entire bead is loosened
from the wheel.
ATTEMPTING TO BREAK BEADS ON PARTIALLY
OR FULLY INFLATED TIRES IS UNSAFE AND CAN
CAUSE HARM TO MACHINE AND/OR OPERATOR.
7. Turn the wheel around and repeat the process on the
other side of the wheel. ( This should be the deepest
side and is the side that will be placed face down on the
turntable clamps. )
2. Before loosening the bead, lube the bead area with
clean tire soap/lube.
NOTE:
To prevent damage to machine and/or wheel, make
sure the turntable jaws are retracted before operating
the bead breaker.
NOTE:
It is easier to clamp the wheel on the turntable clamps
when the bead on the deep side of the wheel is loosened
last. This tends to push the tire upward and leaves the bare
wheel exposed.
3. Position the wheel/tire next to the bead breaker blade
making sure to first demount the shallowest side of the
wheel first. Be sure to position the valve stem in the
3-’clock position. ( See Fig.2 )
STEP TWO
( CLAMPING WHEEL TO TURNTABLE )
1. Prior to mounting the wheel on the turntable, lube the
rim edges and exposed bead area with an approved tire
lubricant. Make sure that the brush is clean and that no
contaminant’s come in contact with bead area. ( See Fig.4 )
Fig. 2
NOTE:
All mounting and demounting operations should be
performed on the shallow side of the wheel. The shallow
side of the wheel is the side closest to the inner hub.
Fig. 4
5
2. Place the wheel/tire on the turntable making sure the
shallow side of the wheel is facing up. ( See Fig.5 )
3. The mount/demount head should be properly positioned
within 1/8” - 3/16” from both the top and side of the wheel
at all times. Once set it will be maintained as long as the
locking handle and adjusting knob are not changed.
With the head set in the proper position the user may
move the swing arm in and out of the way (assuming the
same tires and wheels are being serviced ) without having to worry about repositioning the head. See Fig. 8 for
proper head position.
Fig. 5
3. Depress the left front pedal ( WHEEL CLAMP
CONTROL ) to activate the clamps and secure the
wheel. STEEL WHEELS should be clamped from the
inside. (Clamps will move outward to grip wheel.) CUSTOM / ALLOY WHEELS should be clamped from the
outside. (Clamps will move inward to grip wheel.) See
Fig. 6.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
Regularly check the head for proper clearance even when
servicing the same tire and wheel combination. Improper
clearance can result in damage to wheel and/or tire.
STEP FOUR
( REMOVING TIRES )
1. Position the bead lifting bar over the front end of the
mount/demount head and insert the smooth curved end
just below the upper bead of the tire. To ease in
installation of the tool bar, it helps to use your free hand
to press the opposite side of the tire into the dropped
center of the wheel. ( See Fig. 9. )
Fig. 6
STEP THREE
( POSITIONING THE MOUNT/DEMOUNT HEAD )
1. After the wheel is secured to the turntable, pull the
overhead swing arm into position so that the
mount/demount head is directly over the edge of the rim.
Push down on the vertical slide until the mount/demount
head comes in contact with the edge of the rim. Push up
on the locking handle to lock the slide into position. As
the locking handle is pushed upwards the
mount/demount head will raise approximately 1/8” from
the rim edge. ( See Fig. 7 )
Fig. 9
2. With the tool bar in position, push down towards the
wheel to lift up the tire bead over the finger portion of the
mount/demount head. Hold the tool bar and bead in this
position. Remember to hold the tool bar firmly down on
the surface of the wheel. ( See Fig. 10 )
Fig. 7
2. The mount/demount head roller that is now making
contact with the wheel should be properly positioned 1/8”
from the rim edge by turning the swing arm adjusting
knob.
Fig. 10
6
3. Depress the right front pedal ( TURNTABLE
ROTATION CONTROL ) to rotate the turntable clockwise.
The mount/demount head will guide the tire bead over the
edge of the wheel as the turntable rotates. It is important
that the bead lifting tool remains in the down position at
this time. Press down on the tire directly across the tool
head during this process to force the offside part of the
tire into the drop-center portion of the wheel. This will
relieve the tension pressure on the tire as it is pulled over
the rim edge. Rotate turntable until the upper bead is
completely demounted. ( See Fig. 11 )
DURING THE DEMOUNTING PROCEDURE THE
MOUNTING HEAD AND BEAD LIFTING TOOL MAY
ENCOUNTER
RESISTANCE
AND
BECOME
OBSTRUCTED. AT THIS TIME IT IS IMPORTANT THAT
THE BEAD LIFTING TOOL IS HELD FIRMLY DOWN.
THE BEAD LIFTING TOOL CAN BE PROPELLED
OUTWARD IF RELEASED UNDER PRESSURE. IF THE
MOUNT/DEMOUNT HEAD BECOMES JAMMED,
CAREFULLY REVERSE THE TURNTABLE BY LIFTING
UP ON THE CONTROL PEDAL.
NOTE:
To reverse the turntable in a counter-clockwise direction
lift up on the turntable rotation control pedal.
STEP SIX
( MOUNTING TIRES )
Fig. 11
Be sure to READ ALL WARNING LABELS and
instruction manual prior to operation. Failure to comply
with proper safety instructions may lead to serious harm
or even death of operator and/or bystanders. Keep all
unnecessary person(s) and bystanders out of service
area.
FOR TUBE TYPE TIRES REMOVE INNER TUBE
AFTER DEMOUNTING UPPER BEAD.
4. To demount the lower bead do not remove the wheel
from the turntable. Raise the tire near the tool head while
at the same time forcing the lower bead opposite the tool
head down into the dropped center of the wheel. Insert
the smooth curved end of the bead lifting bar just under
the lower bead of the tire and position over the front end
of the mount / demount head. ( See Fig. 12 )
Inspect all tires and rims for possible defects prior to
mounting. ALWAYS MAKE SURE TIRE SIZE MATCHES RIM SIZE prior to mounting. MISMATCHED TIRES
CAN EXPLODE.
Fig. 12
Be extremely cautious when mounting all tires. Never
mount a tire or tire/wheel combination that is handed to
you by another employee or customer without inspecting
it thoroughly. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MOUNT
DEFECTIVE TIRES. Never mount a tire on a defective
wheel.
5. Depress the right front pedal to rotate the turntable
and guide the lower tire bead up over the edge of the
wheel. It is important that the bead lifting tool remains in
the down position. NOTE: Press down on the tire
directly across the tool head during this process to force
the offside part of the tire into the drop-center portion of
the wheel. Rotate turntable until the lower bead is completely demounted. ( See Fig. 13 )
Modular wheels should be inspected closely to make
sure that the center section fasteners are in place and
properly secured prior to mounting of tire(s).
IF A TIRE BECOMES DAMAGED during the mounting
process, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FINISH MOUNTING.
Remove from service area and properly mark the tire as
DAMAGED.
Fig. 13

1. Inspect all wheels closely for damage and/or defects
prior to mounting tire. Remove any burrs and light corrosion with a wire brush or small file. DO NOT ATTEMPT
TO SERVICE HEAVILY CORRODED WHEELS. Clean
bead area thoroughly. ( See Fig. 14 )
NOTE:
For tube-type tires, install inner tube
at this time.
6. To mount the top bead, rotate the turntable so that the
valve stem is located directly across the mount/demount
head ( or at the 7-o’clock position.) Lift the upper bead
over the rear extension of the mount/demount head. To
ease in installation, continue forcing the bead of the tire
into the drop-center portion of the wheel during the
mounting process. Slowly rotate the turntable until the
upper bead is completely mounted. ( See Fig. 17 )
Fig. 14
Fig. 17
2. Inspect all tires for damage and/or defects. Pay close
attention to sidewall and bead areas. ALWAYS MAKE
SURE TIRE SIZE MATCHES RIM SIZE prior to
mounting. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MOUNT DEFECTIVE
TIRES. Clean bead area thoroughly. After cleaning and
inspecting the bead area, lubricate thoroughly with clean
tire soap/lube. ( See Fig. 15 )
NOTE:
During the mounting procedure, the mounting head may
encounter resistance and become jammed. If the
turntable stalls, slowly reverse the turntable rotation by
lifting up on the turntable rotation control pedal.
Reposition the tire and mounting head then continue.
STEP SEVEN
( INFLATION PROCEDURE )
Fig. 15
Be sure to READ ALL WARNING LABELS and
instruction manual prior to inflation of tire. Failure to comply with proper safety instructions may lead to serious
harm or even death of operator and/or bystanders.
4. Place the wheel on the turntable following the
procedures outlined in STEP TWO. Move the swing arm
into position so that the mount/demount head is properly
positioned within 1/8” - 3/16” from both the top and side
of the wheel. Place the tire over the wheel at an angle so
that the lower bead is resting on top of the rear extension
of the mount/demount head and below the front
extension. ( See Fig. 16 )
This machine is not intended to be a restraining devise
for exploding tires, tubes, or rims. KEEP HANDS AND
BODY CLEAR at all times and as far back as possible
during inflation. DO NOT lean over the tire while inflating.
An exploding tire, rim or other wheel component can
cause death to operator and/or bystander . REMAIN
CLEAR AT ALL TIMES.
Fig. 16
5. Depress the right front pedal to rotate the turntable
and guide the lower bead down over the edge of the
wheel. To ease in installation, continue forcing the bead
of the tire into the drop-center portion of the wheel during
the mounting process. Slowly rotate the turntable until
the lower bead is completely mounted.
While seating beads, NEVER exceed 40 p.s.i. If bead
does not seat at 40 p.s.i. immediately relieve pressure
and check for damaged bead and/or other cause.
NEVER EXCEED the factory recommended air pressure
of tire. Over inflating the tire beyond the manufacturers
recommendation can cause tire burst or explosion.
8
1. Connect the inflation hose to the tire valve stem making sure that the hose clip is properly secure. ( See Fig. 18 )
4. Once the bead is sealed and the tire begins to
inflate, step away. During the bead seating and inflation
process STAND BACK AND KEEP HANDS AND
ENTIRE BODY CLEAR. ( See fig. 21 )
Fig. 18
Fig. 21
2. Hold the tire up to position the upper bead against the
upper edge of the rim. Make sure that the top bead
clears the bottom of the valve stem to prevent air from
escaping during inflation. ( See fig. 19 )
Fig. 19
KEEP HANDS AND BODY CLEAR at all times and as
far back as possible during inflation. DO NOT lean over
the tire while inflating. An exploding tire, rim or other
wheel component can cause death to operator and/or
bystander . REMAIN CLEAR AT ALL TIMES.
5. As the pressure in the tire increases, the beads will
move outward on the wheel and “pop” when they seat
completely. If the beads refuse to seat during inflation
relieve the pressure immediately and check for possible
causes.
3. Pull the trigger on the inflation hose to begin inflating
the tire. If necessary, depress the “Jet-Blast” inflation
pedal to help seal the beads. You should only have to
hold the “Jet-Blast” inflation pedal down for a couple of
seconds before the beads seal allowing the tire to inflate
properly. ( See Fig. 20 )
Fig. 20
While seating beads, NEVER exceed 40 p.s.i. If bead
does not seat at 40 p.s.i. immediately relieve pressure
and check for damaged bead and/or other cause.
NOTE:
To release air pressure with the inflation hose attached to
the tire, press the pressure release valve button attached
to the inflation hose. ( See fig. 22 )
DO NOT depress the “Jet-Blast” inflation pedal unless a
tire/wheel is in place on the turntable. If the “Jet-Blast”
inflation pedal is depressed without a tire/wheel in place,
dirt or other debris could be blown upward with extreme
pressure causing injury to the operator or bystanders.
Fig. 22
NOTE:
If the bead refuses to seal after one or more attempts,
you may wish to remove the valve stem core to assist in
the bead sealing process. Once the bead is seated,
remove the inflation hose and re-install the valve stem
core.
NEVER EXCEED the factory recommended air pressure
of tire. Over inflating the tire beyond the manufacturers
recommendation can cause tire burst or explosion.
