Hunter Engineering Co. has packed time-saving and ease-of-use accessories into the TCX625 Plus heavy-duty tire changer unveiled at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.

The new tire changer takes out the back breaking work of mounting and dismounting heavy-duty tires with hammers and pry bars , according to Don Glaser, product manager for heavy-duty alignment. “No pry bars, no hammers, no liability,” he says.

The TCX625 Plus HD is ideal for wide based and specialty assemblies, according to Hunter.

The TCX625’s pedal-controlled inner roller saves the operator time and effort, bringing service times that are comparable to manual methods, but are much safer, according to Hunter. In addition, a lever improves traction when mounting the outer bead.

The company says the TCX625 Plus HD combines compact size with a unique mount/demount roller mechanism to provide high performance servicing of heavy-duty, over-the-road truck assemblies and includes several popular accessories.

Ramps reduce operator effort.
