The Auto34R’s speed and ease of use derive from its innovative telescoping chassis that brings the wheel to the rollers and tool head. The new mechanism clocks the rollers and tool head to match the curve of the wheel. Direct rim tracking lowers the stress on beads during mount and demount cycles, saving operator time and reducing the risk of wheel damage.

For shops with space constraints, the compact sliding chassis considerably reduces the need for floor space. Similarly, the bead press arm is center-mounted for a smaller swing radius. The new chassis also eliminates many moving parts, delivering efficient operation over a long service life.

The Auto34R excels on assemblies where the greatest care is desired. The new model’s electric actuation and three-button control panel provide for simple, smooth and responsive adjustments, saving time, operator frustration and the risk of damage from crashing rollers into wheels.

“The Auto34R is so easy to operate, because diameter changes are so simple to make precisely,” said Jim Hudson, Hunter tire changer product manager. “It’s a great machine for shop owners, too. The unique design eliminates many common tire changer wear points like cables, telescoping arms and locking cylinders, all while reducing the floor space needed to install it.”

Everything about the new Auto34R has been designed with speed and efficiency in mind, the company said, including the return of Hunter’s Auto34S feature favorites like automatic indention and a memory function that conveniently returns the mount head to rim height. Additionally, a new high-volume vertical blast tank offers more powerful blast that also saves space — providing superior capability while conveniently fitting against a wall.
