Power Assist Perfection + Tire Changer Protection

When you need a tire changer that will get the job done on virtually all commuter and passenger vehicles, including pick-up trucks and race cars, the space-saving R980AT might be exactly what you need. It features an assist tower to help unseat stiff, low-profile tire beads and run-flats. A centering cone it holds the bead in the drop-center, further helping protect the tire during external clamping procedures. This model is a perfect addition to full-service repair bays and general tire shops because it accommodates a wide range of tire-and-wheel combinations.

Power assist tower

The swing-arm on the R980AT is one of this tire changer’s most useful features. When dealing with run-flats and stubborn beads, the power assist tower will safely secure the edge of the tire, moving along with the activated turntable. The bead will almost always seat without a struggle. Try this on a stubborn bead without the swing-arm, and you’ll be at it for a while, wasting your precious time.

Electric turntable

A high-torque electric turntable efficiently spins tires to seat or remove beads. With reverse-direction foot pedal controls, you’re in total charge of your tire changing operation. The turntable is the only electrical component in the tire changer (everything else is air-powered), and it requires very little support or maintenance over time.

Traveling drop-center top-mount helper / swing-in bottom helper disc

Tough sidewalls? No problem. A traveling drop-center tool makes changing tires easy. Ranger tire changers offer increased safety and efficiency, and the drop-center tool is essential to the entire operation. A swing-in disc can also help loosen beads by using safe pneumatic power that won’t damage your tires.

Updated electric motor

Ranger motors have it all: rugged copper rotor construction, high-quality bearings, thermal-cool epoxy insulation and durable rolled steel frames.

Upfront controls

Foot pedal controls make for hands-free operation of the turntable, and all pneumatic locks and switches are easy to reach.

Stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders

To ensure a low-friction environment, steel and aluminum cylinders work together to reduce machine vibrations. End-of-stroke cushioning protects seals, wear bands and pistons bands from excessive forces, prolonging the life of the tire changer.

Balanced flywheel

Balanced flywheels also help reduce vibrations in your equipment. The less stress on your machine, the longer it lasts.

Bead-breaker design

The bead-breaker’s speed is significantly increased due to our included bilateral pneumatic accelerators. They’re just as effective in reverse too! The cylinder won’t react if moisture is detected in the air. This eliminates any chance of rust or corrosion due to condensation or extreme humidity. A multi-axis, adjustable blade permits multi-angle tire capacity, while the large, dual-flange axle prevents the blade from flexing or failing.

Enhanced bead-breaker blade

Your Ranger tire changer features a powerful bead breaker blade that won’t stress the rest of the machine as it breaks beads, and it returns smoothly when it detaches from the tire. This smooth return reduces shock loading and wear on the cylinders.

Multi-function mount and demount head

An equi-dimensional, hardened alloy steel mount and demount head assists tire beads during all tire changer operations. Protective plastic covers ensure steel never contacts the wheel, protecting custom and high-performance wheel types at all times. A 100% polymer head is also interchangeable with the steel head.

Pneumatic control valves

Industrial-grade, 45-micron, pneumatic control valves feature die cast and machined bodies constructed from zinc and aluminum. High-performance polyurethane seals and self-lubricating Teflon® piston guides help make your tire changer stronger and longer-lasting. Valve plungers feature muffled extrication ports that blow away dirt and other contaminants each time the valve goes into the release position.

Adjustable RimGuard™ wheel clamps

Ranger’s exclusive RimGuard™ wheel clamps come standard on the R980AT tire changer, and this massive turntable allows them to expand 30”. Dual multi-tooth jaw sets permit internal and external clamping, and the vertical-mount design reduces the time you spend on each tire.

Easier bead lubrication

Your R980AT tire changer has a geometric tabletop that makes bead lubrication fast and easy to inspect.

Simple foot-pedal control

No heavy, rusted-out cast-iron foot pedals here! Forged steel is long-lasting, lightweight, durable and won’t corrode over time. The snap-action pedals immediately return to starting positions when released. The pedals’ high responsiveness prevents tire tears and considerably speeds up operations. Multi-link rod connections support non-binding plunger movement and better bilateral control.

Pneumatic tubing

High-pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing is outfitted with a seamless bore for better flow rates. The tire changer also benefits from high abrasion resistance, high burst tolerance and maximum kink resistance.

TurboBlast™ bead seating

Ranger’s TurboBlast™ bead seater is a Ranger tire changer exclusive. It simply forces air into tires with stubborn beads, seating them quickly when simple inflation won’t do the trick. A nylon discharge barrel has a locking tab that sits right on the edge of the rim. This design makes it easy to aim and control the intense air burst.

Maintenance-free gearbox

You’ll enjoy your tire changer’s hands-off gearbox. It never needs maintenance and has a massive oil and grease reservoir for improved heat dissipation and component lubrication. Internal baffles and a constant seating stress flange gasket assure positive, leak-free venting. Also to your benefit, Ranger prefers precision helical gears in our tire changers instead of loud, clunky spur gear transmissions.

Standard wheel service accessories

Get more with your tire changer purchase. We include a soap bucket and brush, plastic wheel protector kit with turntable jaw covers, bead-breaker blade boots, specialized mount/demount head covers and a hardened steel tire iron and bead lever tool.

Sealed electrical components

None of the electrical terminals, auxiliary switches or motor enclosures are left unprotected. Dust and other shop contaminants are kept out too. The internal cavity of your tire changer will always be clean—another way we extend the life of your equipment.

Advanced drive belt system

The R980AT has a drive belt that evenly disperses wear and improves belt support. Flex-bonded cords and flex-weave covers keep away oil, heat and other contaminants that threaten the efficiency of the machine.

Spring-assisted tool shaft

A 45 mm spring-assisted hexagonal vertical tool shaft and hardened-steel horizontal outrigger support arm ensure the mount-demount tool head remains stable and precisely aimed.

Foot-controlled tire inflator

Inflate tires without lifting a finger. The tire changer features a sure-grip clip-on valve chuck on the inflation hose (for hands-free operation), and an air pressure dump valve lets you release air from the tire.

Motorcycle clamps (optional)

Your Ranger R980AT tire changer is more than capable of handling motorcycle tires. Motorcycle clamps are sold separately and increase your shop’s service capabilities.

DST30P Wheel Balancer: One-Spin, Minimal Weight Placement

The DST30P accurately and efficiently calibrates wheel and tire configurations. Like the DST-2420 wheel balancer, the DST30P handles wheels up to a 30” diameter. It also contains many of the same working components as the DST-2420 but with one exception: we took the 64-tooth magnetic transducer encoder from the DST-64T and built it into this smaller unit for minimal yet incredibly precise wheel weight placements.

Planning on balancing truck and SUV tires? We highly recommend purchasing the Truck Cone Kit (5150555)

The larger encoder features precision-cut square teeth to convert rotary position to a digital electronic signal, quickly achieving maximum profile and top-dead-center positioning. As part of our ongoing mission to supply shops and garages of all sizes, we reduced the unit’s footprint by narrowing the chassis.

If you’re looking for more precise measuring without the digital frills, add-ons and increased body size of the DST-64T, the DST30P is the perfect wheel balancer for your shop. It’s a cost-effective hybrid unit that offers the most precise readings you’ll ever generate from a wheel balancer.

Direct-Drive

The Direct-Axis drive system helps keep the DST30P running smoothly over time. A single belt connects the motor and unbalance sensor, eliminating most maintenance costs during your wheel balancer’s many years of service.

Highly precise digital sensor technology

The DST30P doubles the potential placement for wheel weights while maintaining a space-conscious and highly cost-effective shop solution. Dynamic, static and ALU balancing modes are standard on each unit, featuring dual plane calibration for all OEM configurations and performance wheels.

Ranger’s proprietary Digital Sensor Technology offers a 16-digit digital sensor processor and single-chip technology for better speed and accuracy in your readings. OEM and performance wheels require this sort of sophisticated technology for proper balancing, so be sure any wheel balancer you choose is fully capable of servicing these specialized wheel types.  

Single-chip circuit board architecture upgrades performance and reliability over multi-chip installations, (e.g., latency reductions, substantial boost in device throughput). A speedy, dedicated hyper transport protocol lets data communicate with the micro-processor much faster than would otherwise be possible. Single-chip boards also use less power and better dissipate heat.

Multi-directional quartz piezoelectric load sensors

Dual-component piezoelectric quartz load sensors and digital rotation encoder measure longitudinal, transversal and shear effects for multi-directional force unbalance detection. The piezoelectric force sensors are the most sensitive sensors we have ever made, offering superior stability and fatigue resistance for unlimited service life with your wheel balancer. High-rigidity quartz crystal sensors offer high frequency detection in all three measured directions.

Quick and precise setup

A diverse arrangement of hardened-steel mounting cones lets you work with virtually all wheel types, including most light trucks and SUVs. A rubber “quick-nut” bell adapter, with a non-marring rear cone mount pressure cup, holds mounted wheels securely in place and is sure not to damage tires or wheels during balancing procedures.

Mounting cone package

The DST30P wheel balancer tooling package includes car and light truck cones, as well as a heavy-duty truck cone. This package includes three “smaller” cones: 1.75” - 2.75”, 2.75” - 3.50” and 3.50” - 4.25”, as well as one truck cone 4.50” - 5.00”. Once an optional accessory, the 4.5" - 5.00" truck cone package is now standard. 

An even larger double-sided centering Truck Cone Kit that fits hub sizes 4.75" - 6.75" is sold separately, but also fits the DST30P.

The double-sided centering cone fits hub sizes 4.75” – 6.75”. Put simply, Ranger wheel balancers easily accommodate most OEM and aftermarket wheel configurations.

Tape weight feeder

A tape weight feeder is located conveniently on a side-shelf that’s built into the wheel balancer. You’ll never have to worry about losing or misplacing your Ranger easy-to-peel adhesive tape weight.

64-tooth encoder improves automatic weight optimization

The weight calculations on the DST30P wheel balancer are more accurate than the DST-2420—twice as accurate, in fact! We’ve taken something great and made it even greater, now balancing your tire and wheel configurations with the most precise placements possible. The 64-tooth magnetic transducer encoder offers more precise placement readouts by making it easier to achieve maximum profile and top-dead-center positioning. This means you use less weight while you save more time, increasing your bottom line.

Full-tilt display panel

We’ve taken the touch-pad display panel on the DST-2420 wheel balancer and raised it up, tower-style, for the DST30P. This design improvement offers more flexibility in how you work. The extended, fully adjustable display avoids the problem of glare that can shroud readouts on the screen, and it ensures differently abled operators will enjoy a more ergonomic experience as they calibrate tire and wheel configurations.

LED rolling wheel weight displays

Highly visible LED displays show you exactly where to place the weights in seconds flat. These LED indicators let you see weight positions when the mounted wheel is rolled top-dead-center. As mentioned, the DST30P features an improved encoder wheel over the DST-2420, which means the LED display on the DST30P is more sensitive and more accurate than ever before.

Wheel weight starter kit

When you buy any one of Ranger’s wheel balancers, you get a starter set of wheel weights included with your purchase. The kit has one bulk roll of 100 silver adhesive steel tape weights and 100 black adhesive steel tape weights. We also include one starter box of mixed clip-on steel weights. Of course, additional weights can be purchased in these bulk packages at your convenience.

Ranger Tape Wheel Weights

Quick-Peel™ Segmented Adhesive Black & Silver Steel Tape Wheel Weights

Many states are banning the use of lead wheel weights. Ranger steel weights come in black and silver. Our Stick-On Steel Wheel Weights offer the best overall fit, as well as the most reliable and cost-effective choice. Ranger steel wheel weights are designed to have less impact on the environment and are corrosion resistant.

Our .25 oz. wheel weights are perfectly sized and weighted for most wheel balancing applications, and when paired with a Ranger wheel balancer, you’ll never use more weight than necessary for the job. Our adhesive is extra-sticky, lessening the chance of the weight falling off the wheel and improving your level of customer service. Customers will know the quality difference when you service their vehicle with Ranger wheel weights.
