Ranger

Fast Tire Changes, Simplified Swing-Arm Design

Most repair shops service everyday commuter cars, pick-ups and SUVs. These vehicles have tires and wheels that are relatively easy to work with, so they don't require much in the way of features and add-ons. Such specialty tools are best left for working with aluminum wheels, run-flats and low-profile tires.

Some shops simply want a space-saver that performs basic tire changes quickly and safely. The R980XR is ideal for such environments. It installs flush against the wall, so it stays out of the way, and the included non-marring duck heads are perfect for a wide variety of wheels. It's hard to go wrong with this model as your primary machine or back-up to your more sophisticated model.

Designed to perform, built to last

Each R980XR tire changer features the latest in design and wheel service technology, providing the best value and performance in its class. The powerful motor and gearbox work systematically at a controlled speed for easy tire removal and installation. Ergonomic controls are sensibly placed to minimize excessive reaching, walking or bending, resulting in more jobs per day and increased profits. Large storage trays provide ample space for wheel weights, tools and accessories on this tire changer.

Electric turntable

To make tire changes happen faster for you, we’ve designed each R980XR model with a high-torque electric turntable. They offer faster speeds and reversible direction to keep you moving. By controlling the speeds, your low-profile and run-flat beads have time to relax, all but eliminating the main cause of tire damage.

Updated electric motor

An improved electric motor features the best of proven technologies, including rugged copper rotor construction, high-quality bearings, thermal-cool epoxy insulation and durable rolled steel frames.

Upfront controls

All controls are ergonomically placed for easy access and operation that’s as efficient as it is comfortable.

Stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders

Stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders are designed to reduce machine vibration and provide low-friction and long life operation. Internal end-of-stroke cushions are standard, offering extra cushioning at the end of each full stroke to reduce wear on seals, wear bands and piston rods.

Balanced flywheel

We’ve perfectly balanced every flywheel on our tire changers to eliminate as much vibration and machine component stress as possible.

Bead-breaker design

Bilateral pneumatic accelerators offer incredible bead-breaker speeds, even in reverse. The stainless-steel bead-breaker cylinder does not react with moisture in the air, so there’s never a risk of corrosion due to condensation. A multi-axis, adjustable blade allows operators multi-angle tire capacity, as well as a large, dual-flange axle that completely eliminates blade flex and premature failure. The blade settings can be adjusted according to individual user preferences, a crucial design feature that permits a larger variety of tire and wheel combos.

Enhanced bead-breaker blade

The bead-breaker blade is enhanced with a more rugged box frame that strengthens the integrity of the tire changer structure, increasing the number of years you’ll be using this one device to change tires in your shop. A sizeable rubber bump-stop makes returns smoother than ever, reducing shock loading and cylinder wear, as well as wear on other moving parts throughout the life of your tire changer.

Multi-function mount and demount head

The equi-dimensional shape of the hardened alloy steel mount and demount head features a micro-smooth tool head surface that glides tire beads during mounting and demounting procedures. In addition to the standard alloy-steel mount and demount head, we also include a rugged polymer mount/demount head with adapter that protects fragile tires and rims from metal-to-metal contact damage.

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 extend life of the tire changer and improve overall performance. Valve plungers feature muffled extrication ports that direct any dirt or contamination accumulated on the outside perimeter of the spool to be automatically blown away each time the valve goes into the release position.

Adjustable RimGuard™ wheel clamps

Ranger’s exclusive RimGuard™ wheel clamps expand up to 30”. Made from high-quality hardened steel, the clamps on this tire changer feature two sets of multi-teeth jaws, internal and external, as well as vertical mounting bolts that let you change tires quickly.

Easier bead lubrication

Visual inspections are crucial to proper tire changer operation. Ranger’s geometric tabletop makes bead lubrication easier, and inspecting those crucial lower beads during mounts and demounts is a cinch.

Simple foot-pedal control

Forged steel foot pedal levers can handle heavy-duty operations, no matter how often they’re used. Snap-action springs return the pedal to the neutral position the moment you let go. Your tire changers need to be extremely responsive, so you don’t accidentally tear a tire or slow down operations. Features multi-link rod connections for non-binding plunger movement and precise bilateral control.

Pneumatic tubing

Ranger Next Gen™ tire changers feature high-pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing. The tubing is equipped with a seamless bore for better flow rates, high abrasion resistance, high burst tolerance and maximum kink resistance.

TurboBlast™ bead seating

The TurboBlast™ bead seating system, found exclusively on Ranger tire changers, forces air to help seat stubborn beads. Using a powerful blast from an attached hose, the non-marring nylon discharge barrel features a contoured tab that locks securely on the edge of the rim for better control during air discharge between the tire and wheel. A welded-steel, eight-gallon surge tank is ready at all times for heavy-duty use and extremely fast charge times.

Maintenance-free gearbox

A newly designed, maintenance-free gearbox features a large oil and grease reservoir that helps provide efficient heat dissipation and improved lubrication for longer service life. Internal baffles and a constant seating stress flange gasket assure positive, leak-free venting. The rugged gearbox enclosure is precision-milled for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases and features precision helical gears that operate much more smoothly and quietly than typical spur gear transmissions.

Standard wheel service accessories

To keep your shop running as efficiently as possible, we include a range of wheel service accessories to accompany your tire changer. Necessary items, like a soap bucket and brush, plastic wheel protector kit with turntable jaw covers, bead-breaker blade boots and specialized mount/demount head covers will make your shop life that much better. A hardened steel tire iron and bead lever tool is included to assist with even the most stubborn tire change operations.

Sealed electrical components

Not to overlook even the smallest details, Ranger tire changers are completely sealed to protect all main-lead electrical terminals, auxiliary switches and motor enclosures. No dust or other contaminant can clog or damage the terminal leads. It’s just one less thing for you to worry about when you choose Ranger for your shop’s tire changer.

Advanced drive belt system

The drive-belt on the R980XR has convex sidewalls that evenly distribute wear. The drive-belt also provides belt support, letting your tire changer operate at full efficiency for years to come. Flex-bonded cords and flex-weave covers reliably fend off attacks by oil, heat, age, etc.

Spring-assisted tool shaft

A 45 mm spring-assisted hexagonal vertical tool shaft and hardened-steel horizontal outrigger support arm maintain perfect position of the mount-demount tool head during all tire service procedures, greatly reducing the chance of tire damage.

Foot-controlled tire inflator

An easily accessed, pedal-activated tire inflator immediately starts inflating tires when the ergonomically placed foot pedal is depressed. Meanwhile, a sure-grip clip-on valve chuck is attached directly to the inflation hose, permitting operators to inflate tires without ever using their hands, and an air pressure dump valve is integrated into the structure of the tire changer itself, enabling you to lower tire pressure with just the push of a button. This sophisticated design makes Ranger tire changers easy to operate in the most intense shop environments.

Motorcycle clamps (optional)

Changing motorcycle tires? No problem. Ranger’s R980XR tire changer fits an optional motorcycle clamp, sold separately. The more clients you service, the more you add to your bottom line and the happier you’ll be.



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.
