Hunter Engineering’s New Maverick Tire Changer

Hunter Engineering’s New Maverick Tire Changer

Hunter Engineering has introduced the Maverick, the company’s newest premium center-clamp tire changer with “Revolutionary” DNA. The new model made its debut at Hunter’s booth at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

The Maverick shares many features with Hunter’s popular, standard-setting Revolution tire changer, but keeps the technician completely in charge with smooth and fully variable operation.

Customers have asked for Revolution power in a technician-driven machine, the company said. Offering the best of both worlds, Maverick’s proportional controls combine low-speed functionality with on-demand faster operation. 

Technicians who prefer a more hands-on approach to tire changing will enjoy the freedom to adapt the process to their own precise needs. The Maverick’s simple, four-joystick layout provides superior tactile feedback with one-handed control.

An all-new leverless head utilizes a Revolution-style tool and hook mechanism for maximum wheel protection, while automatically articulating to maintain perfect wheel alignment. A lifting ledge in the pusher foots saves additional time and effort.

“Just as the Revolution raised the bar with fully autonomous tire changing, Maverick is doing the same for a traditional, technician-driven tire changer,” said Jim Hudson, product manager for tire changers. “We took some great features from the Revolution and designed Maverick to be technician-controlled, focusing on flexibility, speed and safety.”

Maverick allows technicians to multitask with timesaving features like the exclusive InflationStation, providing walkaway inflation and fast filling; automatic parking logic that gets the rollers and toolhead out of the way quickly without operator input; and a RollerLock center post that clamps faster and tighter with a patent-pending ball-retention design.

Additionally, hydraulic cylinders, impervious to compressed air quality, deliver superior force and precision over air cylinders. A hydraulic rotation motor results in higher torque and low maintenance. 

HunterNet 2 connectivity offers a complete view into machine utilization and tire changing trends.

Combining technician-focused speed, power and simplicity, along with class-leading wheel and tire capacity, the Maverick is still compact enough for small shops and even some mobile applications.

“The Maverick is all about giving technicians what they’ve told us they want,” Hudson said. “It’s truly tire changing their own way.”
