BARBERTON, Ohio (Oct. 6, 2016) — JohnDow Industries Inc. (JDI) has launched the Tire Taxi and Tire Taxi EX carts designed to move tires and wheels through storage areas and service bays in a simple, fast and safe way.
Equipped with four heavy-duty casters and boasting a load capacity of 265 pounds, the Tire Taxi can move up to eight tires or five tire-wheel assemblies at a time, JDI said.
Applications include moving tires from the storage area, transporting wheel and tire assemblies from the vehicle to the tire changer and stacking tires for display purposes, according to the company.
JDI said the Tire Taxi EX is an extended height version of the Tire Taxi, with an overall working height of 23 inches. The firm noted that the EX variant “creates a more ergonomic working height for the technician” designed to improve work posture, help them avoid unnecessary lifting and reduces strain on the back, knees and shoulders.
Both models will be formally introduced in the JDI Booth (#629) during the 2016 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) Show in Las Vegas.
