Hunter Improves Flush Mount Design of Drive-Over Tread Depth System

Sept. 29, 2016

Hunter Engineering Co. says it has improved the flush mount design of its drive-over tread depth system to ensure zero obstructions or obstacles in the inspection lane.

The company says the new flush design further ensures a smooth drive-through inspection experience. Motorists can now more easily drive over the system when entering a lane. Flush Quick Tread is entirely flush with no protrusions or bumps that may cause vehicle damage, according to the company.

The company says the secret to the enhanced flush design is the new embedded control box. The control box is entirely weather-resistant and dust-proof to ensure maximum protection from the elements.

Hunter’s Quick Tread system automatically measures the tread depth of each tire in seconds. The unit captures 280,000 data points across a two-inch segment of the tire and generates a point cloud: a three-dimensional model of the customer’s tire, according to Hunter. Results are presented in a digital report and on an easy-to-understand, customizable printout. 

All measurements are processed on-site in seconds. No internet connection is required to process measurements and there are no recurring monthly subscription fees.   

Hunter’s Quick Tread is available as a stand-alone system or can be paired with Quick Check to identify additional service opportunities including alignment, battery, tire pressure, diagnostic trouble codes and braking balance.
