Striving to meet the needs of people working in the tire industry, MARTINS INDUSTRIES introduces new features to its Power Lifter tire and wheel lifter. Originally designed and put on the market three years ago as a tool for effortlessly lifting passenger vehicle wheels, the Power Lifter can now lift SUV and pickup truck wheels thanks to its greater load capacity, which has increased from 110 lbs. (50 kg) to 187 lbs. (85 kg).
To improve the efficiency of tire installation technicians and reduce the risk of a work injury, MARTINS INDUSTRIES has also added the following features:
- A safety strap to hold wheels in place.
- Three automatic lift speeds to lift tires and wheels in under 13 seconds (as compared to a single, slow speed on the original model).
- A hardware tray and impact wrench holder to keep your tools in place and handy.
“Our goal was to improve our product’s load capacity and equip it with new features while reducing the price…and we did it!” says Jean-François Laberge, Managing Director at MARTINS INDUSTRIES.
Easy handling, precision, efficiency and safety
The Power Lifter enables you to change the tires on a passenger vehicle, SUV or light truck without injuring your back, neck or shoulders. With the simple touch of a button, the machine does all the lifting for you! In addition, the tire and wheel lifter’s ergonomic handle and pivoting casters make it easy to handle and move around.
A technician has to bend over an average of 28 times to change four tires, and this product can help prevent work accidents. Everyone in the industry wins by reducing the costs related to accidents and injuries, missed workdays, having to train new employees, etc.
The Power Lifter comes with two 12-volt rechargeable batteries and a charger. Each long-lasting battery enables you to change approximately 500 passenger-car tires on a single charge.
