Advanced NextGen™ Tire Changer Technology
When NextGen was first introduced, our entire line of professional-grade tire changing equipment was re-engineered and thrown into the real world for testing. Choosing the right tire changer allows shop owners and service operators to easily move through daily routines. Whether clamping a delicate rim or fixing a run-flat, these tire changers are as gentle as they are powerful. That's all thanks to our patented RimGuard™ protection technology. NOTE: Internal and external rim clamping dimensions do not translate directly to rim or tire sizes as rim clamping points may vary by manufacturer.
Tire Changer Convenience
Ranger's extensive tire changer lineup is one of the most impressive equipment offerings in the industry, with models designed to suit nearly every budget, automotive specialty and tire size. Some of Ranger's exciting innovations include a helpful drop-center top mount arm that firmly holds the tire in place during rotation. You'll also find a pneumatic wheel restraint device to keep the mounted wheel locked into place. Power-assist upper bead rollers assist in setting and breaking beads. Ranger features one of the largest wheel-clamping ranges in the industry, as well as power-assist mounting towers for even more versatility. You may want to consider a swing-arm tire changer, which gives you more options for unseating stubborn beads. In fact, a Ranger swing-arm tire changer just might change the way you look at wheel service for your client's car or truck.
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 increase the lifespan of your tire changer. Valve plungers feature muffled extrication ports that detect dirt or debris on the spool's perimeter and blow it away whenever the valve is set in the release position.
Sealed Electrical Components
All main-lead electrical terminals, auxiliary switches and motor enclosures are sealed to keep the terminal leads air-tight and dust-free.
Ranger Next Generation™ tire changers feature high-pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing with mirror-smooth seamless bores for exceptional flow rates, high resistance to abrasions and kinks and a high burst tolerance.
Never worry about maintaining gearbox components, as Ranger tire changer's gears are virtually zero-maintenance for the entire lifespan of the unit. A substantial oil and grease reservoir dissipates heat and self-lubricates the entire system, extending the life of your tire changer. Internal baffles and seated stress flange gasket ensure venting and prevent any leaks. The gearbox enclosure is precision-milled for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases, and precision helical gears function better than typical spur gear transmissions, providing maximum durability and precision under load during worm and gear alignment.
Updated Electric Motor
Our tire changers are fitted with advanced electric motors: copper rotor construction, high-quality bearings, thermal-cool epoxy insulation and durable rolled steel frames are standard on every motor we put in your shop.
Ranger tire changers come complete with space to keep your tools. This, of course, helps you keep a more efficient and highly organized workspace.
A rugged, stainless steel, braided metal conduit keeps your hoses and wires protected at all times.
