OPERATOR PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

Personal protective equipment helps make tire and wheel service safer. However, equipment does not take the place of safe operating practices. Always wear durable work clothing during tire service activity. Shop aprons or shop coats may also be worn, however loose fitting clothing should be avoided. Tight fitting leather gloves are recommended to protect operator’s hands when handling worn tires and wheels. Sturdy leather work shoes with steel toes and oil resistant soles should be used by tire service personnel to help prevent injury in typical shop activities. Eye protection is essential during tire service activity. Safety glasses with side shields, goggles, or face shields are acceptable. Back belts provide support during lifting activities and are also helpful in providing operator protection.

Consideration should also be given to the use of hearing protection if tire and wheel service activity is performed in an enclosed area, or if noise levels are high.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Receiving

The shipment should be thoroughly inspected as soon as it is received. The signed bill of lading is acknowledgement, by the carrier, of receipt in good condition of the shipment. If any of the goods called for on the bill of lading are shorted or damaged,

do not accept them

until the carrier makes a notation of the shorted or damaged goods on the freight bill.

Do this for your own protection.

NOTIFY THE CARRIER AT ONCE if any hidden loss or damage is discovered after receipt.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO

COLLECT FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE

AFTER YOU HAVE

GIVEN THE CARRIER A CLEAR RECEIPT. File your claim with the carrier promptly. Support your claim with copies of the bill of lading, freight bill, invoice, and photographs if possible.

Floor and Space Requirements

The balancer

MUST

be located on a flat floor of solid construction, preferably concrete. The balancer

MUST

sit solidly on the floor. If the balancer is not level, or is placed on an unstable floor, the balancer will not function properly and will produce inaccurate balance readings. It will NOT function properly if operated on the pallet.

Select a location for the balancer that provides a level, solid floor, and adequate clearance around and above the balancer.

Make sure the location selected has enough room above and behind the unit so the hood can be raised completely.

The location must also provide working room for mounting and removing wheels.

Unpacking and Setup

Handling of the machine must be performed only with an appropriate lifting device such as a forklift or pallet jack. Only personnel who are experienced and qualified on material handling procedures should handle any transportation or moving of machine.

1. Remove the carton from the pallet.

2. Remove the shipping bolts making sure to keep hands clear of all pinch points.

3. Remove straps and plastic wrap holding the hoods, accessory boxes and any other components in shipping position.

Do not use the, face-plate, hood or threaded shaft to lift the balancer.

Use help to remove the balancer from the pallet. The unit is heavy and the weight is not evenly distributed.

Dropping the unit from the pallet may cause personal injury or equipment damage.

Electrical Requirements

Anchoring the Balancer

The balancer can be bolted to the floor using concrete anchors through the holes in the base.

STANDARD WIRING IS 220 VOLTS 50/60Hz.

Consult a licensed electrician for electrical hook-up according to local electrical codes. Operation with no ground can damage electronics and will create a shock hazard for the operator or bystanders. Damage caused by improper electrical installation may void warranty. Most electrical codes require “hard-wiring” when machine is bolted to the floor.

BALANCER OVERVIEW

This machine is a two-plane, microprocessor-based computer balancer. Any imbalance in a wheel, either static or dynamic, is detected into two correction planes (the inner and outer) where corrective weights can be applied. Pressing the

F

button selects either

DYNAMIC, STATIC,

or

ALLOY

modes which changes the location of these planes.

The wheel diameter will be referred as the

DIAMETER MEA-

SUREMENT

. This is the diameter of the wheel at the weight location. You can determine the diameter of the wheel / tire on the tire sidewall to determine the wheel diameter. This tells the computer how far from the center of the hub the weights will be applied.

Determining the Planes

When the distance gauge is pulled out and held against the wheel flange, the distance measurement shown on the pull out slide refers to the

DISTANCE OFFSET MEA-

SUREMENT

. This measurement tells the computer the location of the

INNER

plane of the wheel for Dynamic and/ or Alloy balancing.

By using the

WHEEL CALIPERS,

the wheel width or the

WIDTH MEASUREMENT

tells the computer the location of the

OUTER

plane of the wheel for Dynamic and/or Alloy balancing.

Balancing a Wheel

When a wheel is spun, the balancer detects any imbalance present. The computer calculates the weight needed to correct the imbalance and the location for weight application. The weight required to correct the imbalance is displayed on the control panel, and the weight positioning lights assist the operator in positioning the weight application location at top-deadcenter. Weight displays and positioning lights are provided for both inner and outer planes of the wheel.

MOUNTING WHEELS

Select the most appropriate mounting method for the wheel you are balancing. Using the proper method ensures secure mounting, accurate displays and safe balancer operation. It also prevents damage to the wheel. On most wheels, the inner side of the wheel hub usually has the most uniform surface for wheel balancing. Always center the wheel by the most uniformly shaped side of the hub to achieve the most accurate balance.

Regardless of mounting type, always make sure that the wheel is forced firmly against the arbor faceplate and that the wheel lock nut engages the threaded arbor for at least four complete turns. To assist in centering the wheel properly, rotate the wheel on the arbor while tightening the wheel lock nut.

Front Cone Mounting

Front Cone Mounting is the most accurate method

1. Select the cone that best fits the center hole in the wheel.

2. Lift the wheel onto the arbor and slide it back against the arbor faceplate.

3. Slide the cone onto the arbor and into the center of the wheel. Then lift the tire to seat the cone in the center hole.

4. Spin the wheel lock nut onto the arbor. Tighten it securely against the cone.

Quick Chuck Mounting

1. Mount the wheel over the chuck, making sure that the centering hole of the wheel is resting on the inside of the jaw pin(s).

2. Secure the wheel in place by tightening the rotary screw nut using the extension bar.

3. Verify that you have full contact on the wheel surface of all 3 jaw pins.

BALANCING INSTRUCTIONS

1. First determine which mounting method you will use for the wheel.

2. Select a centering / mounting cone that best fits the center hole of the wheel.

3. After installing the necessary mounting hardware, lift the wheel onto the threaded shaft and slide it back against the arbor hub. It will be necessary to lift the wheel slightly when positioning the cone in the center of the wheel hole.

4. While holding the wheel and hardware in position, thread the Wheel Lock Nut over the arbor and secure tightly. Never hammer or hit the Wheel Lock Nut to tighten.

After Balance Vibration Problems

If vibration is still present after balancing the wheels and driving the vehicle on smooth pavement remove the wheels and recheck the balance. If a wheel is out of balance the cause may be:

1. A weight has come off the wheel. Remove the other weights from the wheel and rebalance.

2. Tire slippage on the wheel. Remove and remount the tire using proper tire lubricant and inflate to the manufactures recommended pressure. Do not over-inflate.

Rebalance the wheel and reduce air pressure to recommended PSI.

3. Stones or other foreign objects caught in the tire tread.

Rechecking the Balance

After installing the weights in the proper positions, lower the hood or press

START

to begin the spin mode. The weight display windows should display

0 -- 0

to indicate a perfect balance.

If the balancer indicates that an additional weight is required in the same position as the first weight, then the first weight installed was not heavy enough. Install a new weight or add additional weight to the same area. Re-spin the wheel and check again.

If the balancer indicates that an additional weight is required opposite the position as the first weight, then the first weight installed was too heavy. Correct the first weight and re-spin the wheel.

If the balancer indicates that an additional weight is required in a different position as the first weight, then the first weight was installed in the wrong position. Correct the first weight and re-spin the wheel and check again.

IDENTIFYING REMAINING WEIGHT

Your balancer is set to read

0 -- 0

if the wheel is balanced within 50 grams on either side. If you wish to see what remainder is left on each side

( less than 50 grams ) press the

CUT

button.

After pressing the

CUT

button, residual weight readings will appear in the display windows.

Remove the objects and repair tire as necessary. Check and rebalance if needed. If the balancer still indicates the wheels are balanced to within 5 grams on both inner and outer displays, the problem is not in the balance of the wheels. Check the following possible sources of vibration:

1. Tire pressure. Bring all tires up to the recommended

PSI.

2. Radial or lateral runout in the tire or wheel. Replace the damaged part.

3. Foreign material inside the tire. Remove the tire from the wheel, remove the material, and remount. Remove wheel weights and rebalance the wheel.

4. Imbalanced wheel covers or trim rings. Remove the wheel covers or trim rings and test drive, balance the wheel with the wheel cover or trim ring attached to the wheel.

5. Incorrectly mounted wheel. Remount correctly.

6. Damaged wheel bolt holes. Replace wheel.

7. Worn universal joints. Replace as required.

8. Drive shaft imbalanced or damaged. Balance, repair, or replace.

9. Imbalanced brake rotor(s) or drum(s).

10. Suspension out of alignment. Align the vehicle and replace any damaged or worn parts.

13

TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE.

Perform the following checks if you are experiencing balancing problems.

PROPER INSTALLATION / ASSEMBLY

Confirm that the balancer is placed on a sturdy level surface. Confirm the location and alignment of the set screw and set screw slot on the Face Plate and Shaft Assembly. (See Page 7.)

CALIBRATION

It is recommended that the Weight Location Verification Test be performed on a monthly basis following the procedure found on the following page.

The calibration should be performed with a standard steel wheel (of a size most often balanced) with minimal wear or damage.

NOTE: It is good practice to keep a known good tire and rim combination

(of a size most often balanced)

to use as a calibration / reference tire to assist in any trouble shooting.

Ensure that the calibration weight used is a 200 gram or 7 oz weight and that is mounted correctly during the calibration procedure.

14

WEIGHT LOCATION

VERIFICATION TEST

NOTE:

Before performing the Weight Location Verification Test, make sure the balancer is rigid to the floor and that the shaft and centering cones are clean and undamaged. Even the slightest dirt or damage can cause inaccurate readings.

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION

to the following procedure. If not followed correctly, the balancer will not perform accurately.

This balancer should be checked every 30 days.

NOTE:

A standard steel wheel (of a size most often balanced) and tire balanced to within 5 grams on either inner or outer with minimal wear or damage to the tire or wheel is required for this procedure.

1. Balance an average size tire and wheel to “00”—“00”

2. With the correct parameters DIST, DIA, and WIDTH programmed into the balancer add a 200 gram wheel weight to the outer edge of the wheel.

3. Press the Start button (close Hood). Wheel will spin and stop.

4. The balancer should call for 200 grams on the outer indicator and “00”on the inner indicator.

5. Rotate the wheel until all the LEDs on the outer indicator are lit.

6. The 200 gram wheel weight should be at 6(o clock)

Bottom Dead Center.

7. Remove the 200 gram wheel weight from the outer edge of the wheel.

8. Install the 200 gram wheel weight on the inner edge of the wheel.

9. Press the Start button. Wheel will spin and stop.

10. The balancer should call for 200 grams on the inner indicator and “00” on the outer indicator.

11. Rotate the wheel until all the LEDs are lit on the inner indicator are lit.

The 200 gram wheel weight should be at (6 o’clock)

Bottom Dead Center.

If the location is not at Bottom Dead Center (6 o’clock), please contact the Ranger Products Customer Service

Department.

SELF-CALIBRATION PROCEDURE

1.

Turn on the power. The display will show USA 613.

2.

A standard steel wheel (of a size most often balanced) with minimal wear or damage is required for this procedure.

3.

Following all standard operator warnings, select the type of adapter most often used that will accurately fit the center hole or lug pattern of the wheel.

4.

Roll wheel onto lifting platform then raise platform until adequate height is reached for safe positioning of the wheel.

5.

Place wheel onto arbor then position firmly against hub plate. Tighten hub adapter nut to secure wheel.

6.

Press “F” button to set balancer to dynamic mode

(Static, ALU 1, ALU 2 and ALU 3 will not be lit)

7.

Enter correct wheel data (distance, width, diameter).

8.

Press and hold “R” and “START” buttons until LED displays “CAL-CAL” and indicator lights stop flashing.

9.

Lower hood then press “START” to begin calibration procedure.

10.

The wheel will spin briefly, then stop – “ADD 200” will be displayed if Grams is selected. NOTE: If Ounces is selected, “ADD 7.00” will be displayed.

11.

Rotate the wheel until all LEDs under INNER are lit, then place one 200 Gram weight (included with balancer) on the

inner

edge of the wheel at Top Dead Center

(12 o’clock).

12.

Close the hood, then press START. The wheel will spin and stop.

13.

Rotate the wheel until all LEDs under OUTER are lit, then move the 200 Gram weight from the inner edge to the

outer

edge of the wheel at Top Dead Center (12 o’clock).

14.

Close the hood, then press START. The wheel will spin and stop.

15.

“END-CAL” displays. The calibration procedure is complete.

NOTE:

It is a good idea to keep the known good “calibration tire” set up for the monthly calibration procedure.
