Specially engineered drive‐belt features convex sidewalls to distribute wear evenly while providing proper belt support for for exceptional flow rates, high abrasion resistance, high burst tolerance and maximum kink resistance. improved service life. Flex‐bonded cords and flex‐weave covers resist the effects of oil, heat, ozone, weather and aging. •
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 gearbox 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. •
Durable, hardened, alloy‐steel RimGuard™ wheel clamps features internal and external multi‐teeth jaws with vertical mounting bolts that make replacement fast and simple. •
A geometric tabletop provides for easier bead lubrication and allows operators to make visual inspections of the lower bead during mounting and inflation procedures. •
A powerful left‐side assist tower features a multi‐profile traveling drop‐center tool that holds stubborn sidewalls in the drop‐
center area of the wheel, and a single lower bead lifting disc that can be used to unseat stubborn 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 sidewall 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, tri‐flange, cast‐iron assist tower carriage features linear way bearings for durable maintenance‐free operation. •
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 supersized delicate customs, multiple power‐assist features will help you change tires with minimal effort. •
A pneumatic nylon non‐marring wheel restraint device assures wheels are safely secured to the turntable during inflation procedures. •
Up front controls and a sensible ergonomic design provide ease of use and more efficient operation. •
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. •
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 recue wear on seals, wear band and piston rod. Permanent lubrication design provides outstanding service life. •
A hardened alloy steel mount and demount head has a unique equidimensional 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. •
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. •
