LAS VEGAS — Hunter Engineering Co. has made its FastBlast topside blast inflation system an option for its TCX51H tire changer.
This new configuration will be known as 51H Plus.
Designed to inflate truck and SUV tires, the FastBlast system uses a 6.5-gallon air tank to help with inflating larger light truck and SUV tires, Hunter said.
To operate the option, the technician sets the position, selects the inflation mode and presses the inflation pedal for an immediate blast from the air tank.
"FastBlast excels at being able to blast-inflate those big, heavy, balloon truck and SUV tires," Jim Hudson, Hunter product manager for tire changers, said.
"It's faster, safer, easier and more effective than any other nozzle-based blast inflation."
Other featured benefits of the 51H include a heavyweight chassis, 10- to 26-inch external clamping, PowerOut bead breaker and 220-volt two-speed power.
