Workshops specialising in commercial vehicles will benefit from increased productivity and wheel service opportunities with the latest releases from Hofmann.
The garage equipment brand has just launched its new geodyna 4800 2L wheel balancer and monty 4250 tyre changer – which are both ideally suited to trucks and other units within the commercial market.
The geodyna 4800 2L offers fast and accurate data entry by measuring the wheel offset and diameter in one process, lessening the chances of input errors.
A gauge arm with patented wheel weight clamp to input wheel data means that users will be able to work safe in the knowledge that they are positioning weights in exactly the correct spot on the wheel.
A better visual finish can also be achieved with the ability to place weights behind wheel spokes, while a widescreen monitor displays all necessary information in an easy-to-read way.
Working alongside the 4800 2L is the monty 4250 tyre changer, which is designed for use with truck, tractor, bus and earthmover wheels weighing up to 1,500kg.
Tyre mounting and demounting is made easier thanks to a tilting bead breaker disc system which increases the pressure applied by the bead breaker and ensures that it is always in the best position relative to the rim.
Hydraulic control of the tool holder arm and chuck provides quick and convenient operation for dealing with wheels with rim diameters of 14in-56in (with additional adaptors; 14in-32in as standard).
