Hunter Puts Its TCX Tire Changers to the Test in New Video Series

Posted on February 5, 2018

Hunter Engineering Co.’s new “Tire Changer T.K.O.” video series compares the mass, power, speed and torque of its TCX tabletop tire changers.

The company says its tire changer scientists conducted a series of comparison tests to demonstrate the TCX tabletop models.

The TCX50, TCX51 and TCX53 offer a variety of options on a robust tire changing body. Hunter says its TCX56 and TCX57 feature a larger chassis with two motor speeds and tremendous power that alternative tabletop tire changers fall short of matching.

The company also has a "browsing decision guide" to help shops choose the right tabletop tire changer.

Here’s a look at the TCX53 model:
