Low-profile tires. Run flats. Mud tires. Off-road tires. High-volume tire shops have to be prepared to handle any type of wheel that rolls into the shop. That means having a tire-changer that’s rugged, versatile and reliable enough to get the job done quickly.

Ranger’s new R80EX tire changer features a dual-assist, tilt-back tower design that makes it an efficient machine for busy shops. A multi-profile traveling drop-center tool, top bead assist rollers, dual lower bead lifting discs and a nylon non-marring wheel restraint device make life easier for technicians by reducing physical exertion, increasing safety and eliminating the need to get help from another tech to change the most difficult tires.

“The Dual Power Assist arms are like having another set of hands when changing large tires,” says Jeff Castillo, technical adviser, BendPak. “With other machines, you’d have to use your body to help move the bigger wheels or take someone away from another project to help you. But with all the features on this machine, changing almost any tire requires little to no physical effort and it’s so much faster and safer for the technician.”

The tilt-back design offers several advantages over swing-arm wheel-clamp tire changers for high-volume shops. It reduces operator fatigue because the head assembly is automatically moved away when the wheel assembly is ready to be removed from the turntable. When the next wheel is placed on the turntable, the operator just presses the foot pedal, and the arm swings back into the correct position automatically, which saves time and effort during the tire changing process.

Other key features of the R80EX include:

  • Multi-axis and adjustable bead loosener shovel blade that helps accommodate a larger variety of tire and wheel combinations.
  • Balanced flywheel that makes the machine run smoothly, reduces vibration and minimizes stress on other machinery components.
  • Large 34-inch capacity turntable with adjustable hardened-steel RimGuard wheel clamps that broadens shops’ service range.
  • Maintenance-free gearbox with a large oil and grease reservoir to help provide efficient heat dissipation and improved lubrication for longer service life.
