Tyre changer 2
Second generation tyre changer for trucks. With this device it is possible to change the wheel without an extra stroller – as was required with the first type of tyre changer.
The device is designed to be pushed or pulled perpendicularly or parallel to the wheel. Parallel driving is required when changing the truck’s inner wheels.
The device is driven by an electric motor to assist the operator in moving wheel. Another high torque electric motor turns the wheel, helping the operator to align it with the wheel hub. The hydraulic cylinder holds and locks wheel. The entire device allows the operator to independently mount and dismantle a 2m wheel.
The device is commercially available. RTC can adapt its designs and functions to its customers.
