CONWAY, Ark. — Snap-on Inc. has added the John Bean T2545T Swing Arm Tire Changer, a compact machine for handling passenger cars, light trucks and high-performance wheel and tire assemblies, to its tire changer portfolio.
"The ergonomic design and safety-enhancing features of the new John Bean T2545T tire changer provide the user a safe work space when changing a variety of tires," Adam Brown, director of product management for John Bean, said.
"The T2545T is easy to set up, simple to use and offers a large range of capacity. Its compact design gives it a small footprint, even with larger tire sizes."
Among the T2545T's features are:
- a locking mount/demount head offset for maximum cosmetic safety for expensive wheels;
- precision-cast and machined shoes with robust cast jaws for precise clamping;
- heavy-duty pneumatic valves for intuitive functionality; and
- an electric motor that generates 885 ft.-lbs. of torque to the turntable to mount stiff, difficult tires, the company said.
The equipment also features a newly designed bead breaker control for improved ergonomic operation.
