Hunter debuts DSP7705 economy wheel balancer

Jan. 11, 2011

Hunter Engineering Co.’s DSP7705 wheel balancer is a rugged, economy model with features that ease service and provide fast, accurate results.

The DSP7705 handles a wide range of wheel designs up to 44 inches in diameter and 20 inches in width. The powerful motor can spin assembles up to 150 pounds repeatedly without overheating, the company notes.

Hunter reports the DSP7705 is simple to operate, even for first-time users. The intuitive display uses easy-to-understand wheel graphics and simple controls to help operators enter wheel dimensions, determine the best weight placement, and navigate through balancing procedures.

The Dataset arm assists with automatic direct measurement of wheel dimensions when using tape weights, eliminating manual data entry errors.

The DSP7705 also supports a series of patented features to speed service and increase profitability.

* Servo Stop control automatically positions wheels at the top-dead-center weight location, saving time and ensuring accuracy.

* Split Spoke mode automatically locates the best out-of-sight position for adhesive weight placement on custom wheels, and Split Weight mode splits the weight reading into two weights and relocates them on the wheel to help reduce weight inventories and avoid trim ring obstructions.

* CenterCheck verification indicates proper centering of the wheel before proceeding with the balance, and Quick Cal-Check confirms if calibration is needed at any time.
