Hunter Adds Compact Quick Tread Console

Posted on June 19, 2017

Hunter Engineering Co. has released a space-saving console designed to run a fully automatic Quick Tread inspection lane.

Hunter’s Quick Tread inspection technology automatically measures tire tread depth and captures vehicle identification in seconds as motorists drive into the service lane. Hunter says its new, compact console provides a clean installation virtually anywhere in or nearby the service drive thereby saving valuable space.

The new Quick Tread console can be connected to a network printer at the service desk to provide customers inspection result printouts. The Quick Tread system can also be integrated with multi-point inspection providers to supply digital inspection reports and tires offers to customers.

Approximately 25% of all customer tires are in need of immediate replacement or will need to be replaced soon, according to Hunter. By auditing every vehicle and presenting timely, informative tire offers, shops are able to dramatically increasing customer tire sales.

You’ve Got Email: It’s Still the Way to Go to Market, Digitally Speaking

Facebook is great for sharing your thoughts and feelings to everyone you have friended, but email is more targeted, especially when used for business. You might say it is even more personal than Facebook because it is designed for interaction between two people or among a small group of people.

Drew Howlett from Falken says developing the right M/T tire is critical. “There are too many other competitive products on the market to have any weaknesses.”
