New Hunter pit racks offer greater capacities and capabilities to easily service everything from passenger cars to box trucks. The new P441 and P444 pit racks provide a comfortable work height and plenty of space around and under the vehicle to make service fast and easy. The drive-on rack design saves time over raising and lowering a lift and makes either model a great alternative for shops with low ceiling height.
Both the P441 and P444 feature an 18,000-lb. capacity and 22.5-inch runway width to handle a wide range of vehicles. The P441 provides maximum wheelbase limits of 177 inches (two-wheel alignment) and 158 inches (four-wheel alignment). The longer P444 provides maximum wheelbase limits of 211 inches (two-wheel alignment) and 158 inches (four-wheel alignment). Each model is available with 36-inch, 30-inch or 24-inch pedestals, depending on desired pit depth. An optional center pit is also available.
The P441 and P444 further improve service efficiency with optional timesaving features. Select models include Hunter’s patented Fully Integrated Alignment (FIA) console, award-winning PowerSlide system and exclusive Inflation Station feature.
The FIA console allows Hunter’s WinAlign aligners to communicate directly to the rack to automatically operate the PowerSlide system and to set tire pressure limits for Inflation Station.
PowerSlide automatically locks and unlocks turnplates and slipplates as needed during an alignment, eliminating multiple trips around the vehicle and the hassle of removing and replacing lock pins.
Inflation Station speeds service and ensures more accurate alignments by automatically setting tire pressure for each wheel simultaneously with air hose reels integrated into the rack runways at each wheel position. The tire pressure can be preset at the rack console or the aligner.
