Mac Tools is proud to introduce a new line of tire changers. From the smallest job to the most involved tire changing task, these new products will increase efficiency and decrease injury.

Professional technicians have been dealing with pain and strain on their backs from lifting since the invention of the automobile. With OEM Manufacturers creating cars with larger tires and the increased demand for low profile vehicles, the weight of tires has increased. The same has happened with tires for trucks; as the size of pick-ups gets bigger, the tires, wheels and rims increase in size and weight.

Mac Tools recognized this major issue for the industry and in an attempt to better the lives and increase the work efficiency of their customers, a new line of tire changers with the “never lift a tire again,” technology has been brought to market.

Mac Tools’ Tire Changer family product offering has the solution for every tire changing job. The TC850 tire changer with swing arm is the perfect choice for gas stations, small garages and auto salvage yards, or any other basic tire changer need. The mid-level TC1000, and TC2000 with standard press arm, are good for any wheel assembly while the TC3000 automatic tilt back is a great selection for low profile tires with alloy rims. The most robust product in this group is the first to market TC4500. This is the strongest most versatile Tire Changer on the market today.

To order any of these Tire Changers, contact your local Mac Tools distributor or call 1-800-MACTOOLS.
