What Makes Ranger NexGen Tire Changers Superior?
NextGen tire changers include electric turntable drives that are high torque, with more power than most and faster speeds and reversable, so you can remove tires quicker and easier.
The NextGen tire changer's specially designed and shaped tabletop allows for easier lubrication and also provides easier access to the underside of the table for inspections at maintenance.
A powerful 2 HP motor is at the heart of all Ranger tire changers. Most machines only come with a 1.5 HP motor, or sometimes even less. Copper rotors and premium ball bearings provide for more reliability. Insulated with thermal epoxy for heat dissipation. Frame consists of rolled steel for rugged durability and less flex. Drive belt is specially engineered to be convex so as to reduce wear and cords are protected with a sheath that is resistant to wear, oils and solvents, and abrasion.
Flywheel is balanced ensuring that this tire changing machine will run smoothly for years with less vibration, which means you won't have to repair or replace it as soon as others.
All tire changers are built standard with a maintenance free gearbox that dissipates heat better than most machines due to the large grease and oil reservior all to provide for greater longevity.
A pneumatic accelerator is added to all Ranger tire changers to allow for speedy bead breaking in both directions.

All controls are located up front so as to allow for easy access and speed up the technician's productivity. Tire inflation pedal makes inflation easy and hose includes a quick chuck that stays on so technician can keep hands free for other functions. Mounting helper arm articulates for various wheel and tire dimensional configurations.
Wheel restraint device assures wheel stays put during inflation process and and device has nylon protection to prevent wheel damage on those expensive rims.
Tilt back tower tire changer models give the user easier access to the wheel for all functions. This is a desirable feature that works well with the pneumatic locking tool.
Air cylinders under turntable are composed of stainless steel and aluminum and reduce frequency of vibration extending the life of this valuable machine.
Ranger tire changer models have pistons that feature end of stroke bumpers to protect seals and piston rods and they are permanently lubricated so they are maintenance free.
The mounting / demount head is crafted of a hardened alloy steel and it's innovative design means you'll be able to perform all operations without needed to reposition tool head.
