Hennessy rolls out new COATS wheel balancer

Sept. 11, 2007

The new COATS 1250-3DV wheel balancer from Hennessy Industries Inc. is designed for high-volume shops.

The machine comes with a commercial-grade LCD flat screen with a 180-degree viewing angle, laser-guided wheel weight placement capabilities and other features, say Hennessy officials.

"The 1250-3DV is built around COATS' patented Direct Drive technology that uses the motor's main shaft, not pulleys or belts that wear or slip. This proven, 1.5-horsepower system reaches balancing speed quickly and coasts during measurements, resulting in a faster cycle time without component 'noise' that can create balancing errors."
