CONWAY, Ark. — Snap-on Inc. has introduced a line of Hofmann smartSpeed tire changers with variable speeds for enhanced shop productivity.
"Exclusive to Hofmann, the patented smartSpeed technology included on our tire changers optimizes the torque applied to the wheel and automatically sets the maximum rotation speed of the wheel accordingly," said Kyle Harris, product manager for Hofmann.
"Not only does smartSpeed help minimize damage to tires, but with its variable speed offerings from seven to 18 rpms, these tire changers offer the highest appropriate speed for maximum productivity. Investing in a Hofmann smartSpeed tire changer is a good way to help increase a shops' bottom line."
