Description

Ranger

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

Ranger

A Laser Wheel Balancer for Supreme Speed and Amazing Accuracy

The Ranger LS43B laser wheel balancer handles wheels up to 43 inches in diameter. The average cycle time is just 7 seconds, making it one of the fastest floor-to-floor balancing machines ever built.

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

Ranger's revolutionary 3D Auto Data Entry system combines our exclusive DataWand™ and Quick-Touch Data Arm™, allowing you to automatically enter all wheel parameter settings in seconds flat. That gets you wheel diameter, wheel width, offset distance and targeted weight placement selections for exact balancing every time. Simply extend the built-in measuring wands and tap the wheel. That’s all it takes to achieve your desired wheel profile and wheel weight settings without having to manually input the data. Still, if you’re "old fashioned" and still like to enter data manually, go right ahead. It’s as easy to use the manual soft-touch control panel as it is to use the 3D Auto Data Entry system.

Laser-Spot Technology

Laser balancers are increasingly being used in high-volume shops because lasers eliminate second-guessing and speed up weight placements. This also means the balance check you perform after placing inboard and outboard weights will almost always be clean. The fewer weights you use, the better your bottom line. Plus, customers will enjoy long-lasting balances that make their rides feel like new again.

When ALU modes are selected and stick-on weights are desired, instinctive lasers mark the low-side of the wheel at the 6-o’-clock position, making stick-on weight placement and installation a breeze. When it’s time for clip-on weights, the intuitive data control automatically senses that topside weight positioning is desired and pinpoints the laser at precisely 12-o’-clock. Laser-Spot™ weight-positioning lasers provide greater weight placement accuracy and help reduce mistakes. More single-spin balances and fewer customer comebacks will increase productivity and profits. It’s that easy.

Automatic wheel data entry

This balancer features Ranger's exclusive 3D Auto Data Entry technology, so you never have to manually input wheel parameters again. It takes most techs an average of three seconds to retrieve the wheel diameter, wheel width and offset distance from this balancer. Our extendable DataWand™ automatically retrieves all outer-wheel information, while the inner data set arm detects the offset distance between the machine and your tire-and-wheel configuration.

Highly precise digital sensor technology

Ranger's 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 during the sophisticated balance and weight placement techniques required for newer high-tech OEM and aftermarket wheels.

As soon as you lower the spacious wheel hood, the LS43B laser balancer spins into action, delivering precise outboard and inboard weight placements in mere seconds. Static, dynamic and ALU weight placement options can be pre-selected or retrieved simultaneously after a single spin, so you're always able to choose the option that best suits your particular wheel profile.

Automatic braking

After a quick spin of the wheel, a dual-plane automatic electromagnetic braking system automatically slows, stops and holds the wheel in the correct position, eliminating the need for a foot-activated brake with wheel-holding pedals. This gives technicians the freedom to move without restraint when placing weights on both the inner and outer faces of the wheel. At the precise instant the brake is engaged, dual Laser-Spot™ lasers come to life and pinpoint exactly where either the stick-on or clip-on wheel weights should be fastened. A bright, wide LED beam is activated at the precise moment the balancer brake engages. The LED assist light, dual lasers and auto brake will all remain active until the stop button is manually pressed.

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 sensiotive sensors we have ever made, offering superior stability and fatigue resistance for unlimited service life with your wheel balancer. The high-rigidity quartz crystal sensors offer high frequency detection in all three measured directions.

Quick and precise setup

A self-centering, non-marring Quick-Nut and bell adapter set ensures proper centering of the wheel and eliminates counterproductive setup errors. You'll mount wheels faster and easier, minimizing the risk of customer come-backs or costly wheel damage.

Mounting cone package

Included with every machine are both standard and heavy-duty mounting cones, as well as a full accessory tooling package. The LS43B laser balancer's tooling package includes our standard car and light truck cones, as well as a heavy-duty truck cone. This well-equipped package includes three automotive and light truck cones: 1.75” - 2.75”, 2.75” - 3.50” and 3.50” - 4.25”, as well as one truck cone 4.50” - 5.00”.

Tape weight feeder

An open-top side shelf accommodates a large roll of Ranger Quick-Peel™ adhesive tape weights. Included with your purchase is a complimentary wheel weight starter kit that fits directly into a built-in tape weight feeder. Additional weights are available for purchase at any time.

Automatic weight optimization

The LS43B laser wheel balancer features a computer interface with weight optimization technology that automatically calculates the minimum amount of weight needed to achieve optimal balance. Minimizing weight usage at your place of business is sure to add up to real savings over time and ultimately increase your bottom line.

User-friendly operation

An anti-reflective, touch-pad display panel features tire and wheel assembly graphics that help simplify the speedy entry of wheel data. The display panel efficiently guides techs through each balancing procedure. Operator function keys are labeled with simple, easy-to-read icons to help 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 placements, such as split-weight or hidden “behind-the-spoke” techniques. Indicators assist operators with clip-on and tape weight placement at precise locations for zero-on balancing.

Wheel weight starter kit

A free kit of wheel weights is included with every new LS43B laser wheel balancer. Each unit’s starter kit contains one bulk roll of 100 silver adhesive steel tape weights, one bulk roll of 100 black adhesive steel tape weights and one starter box of mixed clip-on steel weights. It’s our way of getting you off on the right foot. Additional Ranger wheel weights are available for purchase at any time.

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.
