The world of wheel balancing machines is a crowded one. With so many manufacturers vying for your attention with slick new features and technical enhancements, it can be tricky for those starting out to determine which brand to go for… let alone which model.
The thing is, not everyone needs dozens of modes and lightning-fast automatic balancing. If you’re looking to add wheel balancing to your workshop’s repertoire for the first time, starting out with a simpler machine may be your best bet.
That’s where Redback comes in.
About the 109 wheel balancer
Redback is one of Britain’s favourite entry-level garage equipment brands, offering a wide variety of products including tyre changers, lifts and, of course, wheel balancers. Most affordable among its range of balancers is the RB109, priced at just £525.00 excluding VAT.
So, what does it have to offer? Quite a lot, as it happens. Although it requires a manual hand spin to get it started (and you have to input the rim data manually), it’s still packed with a range of useful features.
First off, it supports rims up to 24” in diameter – more than enough to balance the vast majority of car, 4×4 and van wheels. It also features static, steel and ALU balancing modes, making it easy to get accurate results every time. Plus, the brake pedal allows you to quickly bring the wheel to a halt for precise wheel weight placement.
Its simplicity gives it another key advantage. Devoid of a bulky lowering hood, the 109 is one of the most compact wheel balancers around, making it perfect for cosy garages and mobile installations.
Assembly is simple, and it uses a standard 13 amp, three-pin plug. Plus, buying through Tyre Bay Direct means you’ll have access to our friendly team whenever you need. From spare parts supply to technical advice, our experts will only ever be a phone call away.
