You no longer need them those tire irons and levers, so put them away!

Why risk the chance of damaging expensive wheels when you can go touchless? With the Ranger RV1 Wheel Guardian, tire irons and levers become a thing of the past.

The Ranger RV1 Wheel Guardian is a durable daytoday performer with the flexibility to service a wide variety of wheels, including OEM configurations, runflats and exotic performance wheels, with ease.

Whether you’re dealing with standard steel wheels or expensive custom alloys, you can tackle them any job with total confidence in your tire changer.
No More Heavy Lifting
An integrated wheel lift with easyguide rollers helps facilitate the handling of heavy wheels and virtually eliminates operator injury. Techs of all experience levels will love using this machine!
Quick and Precise Set-Up
Tires are secured to the changer in the same manner as a wheel balancer for user familiarity and superfast setup times. A rubber base mount, multisize center cones and patented nomar "QuickNut" make mounting wheels fast and easy, further reducing any risk of wheel damage.
Wide Service Range
The Ranger RV1 Wheel Guardian tire machine provides an expanded service range on 13" 30" rim diameters that are up to 15" wide, giving you the ability to work efficiently on a variety of wheel styles and sizes.
Powerful Bead Breaker
Automatically operated bead breaker rollers feature controlled penetration to easily loosen even the most stubborn and awkward beads.
Ranger RimGuard Technology means expensive wheels are handled with greater care, resulting in less damage and increased work efficiency. A single, automatically operated tool head mounts and demounts tires without touching the wheel or requiring levers of any kind. The RV1 comes standard with hardened steel tool head and Nylon inserts.
Our exclusive TargetSpot laser provides precise positionsensing data from the robotic upper bead roller, then generates the exact coordinates for the TargetSpot tool head, making underside beadtool positioning easy.
Maximum Power at Every Step
This touchless tire changer features conveniently placed foot pedals that give operators precise control at all times. The powerful turntable works systematically at a controlled speed for easy tire removal and installation. The smooth, effortless, power delivery of the 3 HP motor provides multispeed install performance, even on tires with stubborn beads. Reversible direction offers operators the ability to back up in the event of turntable stall during stubborn bead installation.
Powerful Bead Seating and Inflation
A handheld turboblast nozzle allows technicians to direct a powerful burst of compressed air precisely where needed to seat even the toughest stubborn beads in seconds. A simple slide valve requires twohand operation to protect operators from accidental discharge. Integrated tire inflation system features airsurge pulse inflation for faster inflation speed and improved bead seating. A large, easytoread pressure gauge with builtin pressure limiter and air dump valve simplifies tire inflation.
Precision Control Valves
The RV1 features high precision foot pedal control valves capable of withstanding heavy use. They feature aluminumalloy valve bodies with durable, corrosion resistant stainless steel spools, combined with a high precision finish for maximum seal life.
Extra Wheel Protection
As added precaution, Ranger provides you with all the necessary tools to ensure wheel damage is minimized during wheel service operations. Our totalcare package includes replaceable nylon inserts for the steel tool head, replaceable nylon remount and dismount heads, rubber pedestal cover, spare dropcenter pull hook tool head and a nomar QuickNut.
Easy View Mirror
The RV1 features a wideview mirror mounted low on the chassis that provides a full view of underside operations.
Mounting Cone Package
When you purchase a performance tire changer, you should receive a performance tool package. We like to call our tooling package the Total Performance Package - with an added bonus. Not only do we give you our standard car and light truck cones, we include our heavyduty truck cone, as well. Our Total Performance Package includes three automotive and light truck cones covering hub sizes 2.00 - 2.75, 2.75 - 4.00 and 4.00 - 6.00, as well as one heavyduty truck cone that fits hub sizes 5.50 - 6.50.
Environmentally Responsible Power Delivery
As the world’s premier manufacturer of automotive service products, we take environmental concerns very seriously. We engineer our products to work great and offer tremendous value, but we also design them in a way that reduces energy consumption and greenhouse gases. As part of our ongoing “think-green” initiatives, the RV1 features Auto-Shutdown Technology, which switches off key power system components after 15 seconds of inactivity. This proprietary power-saving technology shuts off the pump and motor when the machine is at idle, representing tremendous savings in energy-use and minimizing wear and tear on critical operating components. Auto-Shutdown Technology also reduces background noise, creating a more environmentally responsible workplace.
