Is This The Future of Tire Changing?
When we start to talk about doing just about any job, there are certainly lots of tools out there that could apply depending on what application you’re working on. Changing tires is definitely one of those jobs that can be done in a multitude of different ways, even if you don’t have very much machinery at your disposal. It might be a little bit harder and require more elbow grease to get the job done but that isn’t to say that you necessarily need much equipment to save the day and get those tires mounted, even though it does make it a heck of a lot easier.
This time, we check out such a piece of equipment that really does make the job easier as it looks to automate just about every step of the process. Minus a couple of small steps in between, this thing has most of the most strenuous parts of mounting a tire covered as the automated process grabs up the tire and stretches it over the wheel before making sure everything is nice and aligned so that the tire can be filled with air and sent off to be balanced so that it won’t give the driver of the car that it goes on any sort of wobbles when it gets up to speed.
Surprisingly, it seems like the reaction to the machine that you’ll catch in the video below has been rather split with some seeming to prefer to good old fashioned way and others retorting that this method is much cleaner and will save your back in the long haul. After checking out the video below for yourself, be sure to tell us what you think of how this machine operates and how it might be able to save you some time if you go through an abundance of rubber in your shop.
