Will it last? This is a question you’ll feel tempted to ask one of our courteous sales professionals, and that’s exactly where the R980XR shines – in the will-it-last category. It's a high productivity tire machine perfectly suited for large-volume tire shops and repair centers. A host of innovations make the new NextGen™ Series, R980XR one of the most durable, and ergonomically engineered tire changers ever. Controlled power delivery tackles stubborn tire beads without damage, a 25” clamping capacity allows you to service larger tires and wheels, and conveniently placed foot pedals give you precise control over every step of the changing process.



The new and improved Ranger DST2420 wheel balancer now handles wheels up to 30” diameter. It is a highly accurate and dependable no‐frills balancer that features our proprietary Digital Sensor Technology for critical reliability and repeatability.From one-bay shops to  high-volume tire stores, the DST2420 is built with a gritty toughness that puts  out perfectly balanced wheels day after day, around the clock. Like all of our DST Series wheel balancers, it’s a zero  tolerance performer that features our proven Direct-Axis drive system, accurate  to within hundredths of an ounce ensuring wheels are balanced vibration-free.

The DST2420 automatically calculates the exact  weight needed to achieve an optimal balance for almost every tire and wheel  configuration on the planet and brightly displayed LED’s mark the exact amount  and location in just six seconds. A  full-menu of time saving features that includes Dynamic,  Static, and Performance Alloy settings allow  you to balance OEM wheel configurations and performance wheels with minimal  effort and speed.

Digital Sensor Technology Our highly  accurate Digital Sensor Technology features a 16-digit digital signal processor and single-chip technology that increases productivity and offers unprecedented speed and accuracy--especially when using sophisticated balance and weight placement techniques required for newer high-tech OEM and aftermarket wheels.

Single-chip circuit board architecture  provides an inherent performance and reliability advantage compared to  multi-chip implementations of the same functionality. In addition to overall  latency reductions, the single-chip architecture significantly boosts device  throughput. An extremely fast dedicated hyper transport protocol allows data to  communicate with the micro-processor at much faster speeds. This solution  offers unmatched integration of features and functionality and results in lower  power consumption and dissipated heat.

Multi-Directional Quartz Piezoelectric Load Sensors The DST2420 uses highly precise dual-component  piezoelectric quartz load sensors combined with a single digital rotation encoder  that measure both longitudinal,  transversal, and shear effects  for multi-directional force unbalance detection. The piezoelectric force sensors  used on the DST2420 are very sensitive and offer long-term stability and  freedom from fatigue for a service life that is  virtually unlimited. The high rigidity quartz crystal sensors result in very  high frequency detection in all three directions of measurement.


Quick and Precise Set-Up Multi-size center  cones and a full rubber perimeter no-mar “Quick-Nut” bell adapter makes mounting  wheels fast and easy and minimizes the risk of costly wheel damage.

Mounting Cone Package The  DST2420 tooling package not only includes our standard car and light truck  cones, but a heavy-duty truck cone and spacer ring as well. This well equipped  package includes three automotive and light truck cones; 1.75” - 2.75”, 2.75” -  3.50”, and 3.50” - 4.25”, and one truck cone 4.50” - 5.00”.

Weight Optimization The DST242000 automatically calculates the  minimum amount of weight needed to achieve an optimal balance for the tire and  wheel  configuration so you use less weight which adds up to  real savings and increases your bottom line. 

Wheel Graphic Interface A touch-pad display panel features tire and wheel assembly graphics to help  simplify speed entry of wheel data and helps guide technicians through  balancing procedures. Operator function keys are labeled with simple,  easy-to-read icons helping operators identify and command all balancing  functions.

LED Rolling Wheel Weight  Displays Bright LED weight placement indicators show weight positions as the wheel is  gently rolled to exact top-dead-center. Tiered weight placement indicators help  identify out-of-sight weight placement such as split-weight or hidden  “behind-the-spoke” techniques. Aids with clip-on, and tape weight placement at precise  locations for zero-on balancing every time.
