As run flat tyres continue to rise in popularity, workshops and tyre bays with older semi-automatic tyre machines, or machinery without run flat capable assist arms, are finding it increasingly hard to cope with their customers’ demands. For a garage looking to upgrade, Tyre Bay Direct’s Unite U226 fully automatic tyre changer with 3-way pneumatic assist arm allows one operator to easily handle 20” run flat tyre and wheel combinations with minimal effort. The fixed bead roller sits around 6” away from the mounting head to allow easy access with the tyre lever and the rotation clamp keeps the side wall in position during the mounting process to ensure that a single operator can easily fit this combination with minimal chance of damage.
What the company say: “The Unite U226 24” Fully automatic tyre changer is by far the most popular tyre machine in the range at the moment” says Leigh Stote, MD at Tyre Bay Direct. “To professionally change a large run flat tyre single handed, the assist arm really is a necessity and means that even some of the smaller tyre retailers are now looking at this sort of specification as the basic requirement.”
