Product Description

R980ATF is a variable high speed model, perform masterfully on a wide variety of wheels, including virtually all OEM configurations and performance tire and wheel configurations. The R980AT features the latest in design and wheel service technology and provides the best value and performance in its class. The R980AT tire changer is easy to operate, rugged, and equipped with a power assist tower to help when mounting low-profile performance tires. The powerful motor and gear box works systematically at a controlled speed for easy tire removal and installation. Ergonomic controls are sensibly placed to minimize excessive reaching, walking, or bending resulting in more jobs per day and increased profits. Large, storage trays provide ample space for weights, tools and accessories. 


Product Features

  • A new high‐torque electric turntable drive features increased speed and reversible direction for quicker tire removal and installation. Controlled speed gives low profile and run‐flat beads time to relax to reduce the risk of tire damage.
  • Traveling Drop‐Center Top‐Mount Helper / Swing‐In Bottom Helper Disc – A powerful pneumatic drop‐ center tool dramatically reduces the effort required to change tough‐sidewall tires. Workers can concentrate on working safer and more efficiently. Holds run‐flat and low‐profile sidewalls in the drop‐ center then follows the bead around as the tire mounts. A “swing‐in” bottom disc can be used to re‐loosen stubborn bottom beads or provide lift and support for wide or heavy tires.
  • Improved electric motor features the best of proven technologies, including rugged copper rotor construction, stronger high‐quality ball bearings, thermal‐cool epoxy insulation, and durable rolled steel frames. All motors are 110‐208/230V and 50‐60 hertz capable.
  • The R980ATF model featurestrue variable speed control allowing operatorsto match turntable rotational speed with varied tire and wheel combinations. R980ATF requires 208‐230V, 50/60HZ, 1‐phase power supply.
  • Up front controls and a sensible ergonomic design provide ease of use and more efficient operation.
  • Stainless‐steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders are designed to reduce machine vibration and provide low‐friction and long life operation. Internal end‐of‐stroke cushions are standard that help provide cushioning at the end of each full stroke to recue wear on seals, wear band and piston rod.
  • A balanced flywheel helps the machine run smoothly, reduces vibration, and helps minimize associated stress on other machinery components.
  • A completely new and proprietary bead‐breaker design features bilateral pneumatic acceleratorsfor lightning fast bead‐breaker speeds in both directions. A 100% stainless‐steel cylinder body means no more worrying about moisture contamination from corrosion due to air source condensation. Other exclusive design features include a multi‐axis, adjustable blade for multi‐angle tire capacity, a large, dual‐flange axle that eliminates blade flex and premature failure, and adjustable blade settings that help accommodate a larger variety of tire and wheel combinations.
  • Enhanced bead breaker arm features rugged box frame construction that increases the mechanical strength and assures years of dependable service and performance. A large rubber bump‐stop assures smooth return to help reduce shock loading and minimize wear on pneumatic cylinder, guides and associated moving parts.
  • A hardened alloy steel mount and demount head has a unique equidimensional shape with micro‐ smooth tool head surface that glides tire beads effortlessly during mounting and demounting procedures.
  • All R980 models feature a flip‐down bead restraint device that keeps stubborn upper beads correctly positioned down below the mounting head during difficult tire mounting procedures.
  • 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 provide increased service life and performance at the highest level possible within almost every imaginable working condition. Valve plungers feature muffled extrication ports that direct any dirt or contamination accumulated on the outside perimeter of the spool to be automatically blown away each time the valve goes into the release position.
  • Dual‐position, hardened‐steel RimGuard™ wheel clamps offer a wider range of wheel clamping capacity covering wheel sizes 10” – 25”. Internal and external multi‐teeth jaws accommodate internal or external wheel clamping capability.
  • A geometric tabletop provides for easier bead lubrication and allows operatorsto make visual inspections of the lower bead during mounting and inflation procedures. Durable forged steel (instead of cast iron) foot pedal levers will stand up to everyday use and abuse in high‐volume tire centers. Snap action spring return means precise and controlled operation.
  • Foot pedal control valvesfeature multi‐link rod connectionsfor non‐binding plunger movement and precise bilateral control.
  • Ranger Next Generation™ tire changersfeature high pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing with mirror smooth seamless bore for exceptional flow rates, high abrasion resistance, high burst tolerance and maximum kink resistance.
  • Ranger tire changers feature the renowned TurboBlast™ bead seating system* that blasts a powerful air burst between the tire and rim to help seat stubborn beads fast. A durable, non‐ marring nylon discharge barrel features a contoured tab that locks securely on the edge of the rim for better control during air discharge between the tire and wheel. A welded‐steel, eight‐gallon surge tank is larger than competitive models for all the inflation power you need, when you need it.
  • A newly designed, maintenance‐free gearbox features a large oil and grease reservoir that helps provide efficient heat dissipation and improved lubrication for longer service life. Internal baffles and a constant seating stress flange gasket assure positive, leak‐free venting. The rugged gearbox enclosure is precision milled for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases and features precision helical gears that operate much more smoothly and quietly than typical spur gear transmissions.
  • Important wheel service accessories come standard like a large soap bucket with brush and a multi‐ piece plastic wheel protector kit that includes turntable jaw covers, bead‐breaker blade boots and specialized mount / demount head coversto help protect delicate wheels.
  • We throw in a hardened steel tire iron and bead lever tool to assist during all tire mounting and demounting operations.
  • All main‐lead electrical terminals, auxiliary switches, and motor enclosures are sealed for air‐tight, dust‐free and contamination‐proof protection of terminal leads. • Specially engineered drive‐belt features convex sidewalls to distribute wear evenly while providing proper belt support for improved service life. Flex‐bonded cords and flex‐weave coversresist the effects of oil, heat, ozone, weather and aging.
  • A rigid 45mm spring assist hexagonal vertical tool shaft combined with a hardened‐steel horizontal outrigger support arm maintains perfect position of the mount‐demount tool head during all tire service proceduresto reduce the chance of expensive wheels getting damaged.
  • A simple to use tire inflator features foot‐pedal operation and inflation hose with a sure‐grip clip‐on valve chuck enabling hands‐free operation. Integrated air pressure dump valve enables you to lower tire pressure with a simple push of a button.
  • Optional motorcycle turntable clam
