CONWAY, Ark. — Snap-on Inc. had introduced the John Bean T7800 and T7700 tire changers with intuitive control panels.
The T7800 and T7700 tire changers were developed for "superior functionality, providing safe operation for technicians and added protection for the wheels," Leandro Camargo, product manager for John Bean, said.
"These tire changers require less effort and have a superior set of tools that only touch the tire, never the rim, minimizing the risk of damage when working with standard, UHP and run-flat tires."
Designed for high-volume shops, the T7700 is a leverless tire changer with a dynamic bead-breaker system, intuitive control panel and John Bean's "powerMONT" tool that provides more flexibility in wheel clamping and reduces the possibility of wheel damage, the company said.
The T7700 also features an integrated wheel lift to help reduce technician fatigue when handling heavy wheels and PROspeed that controls torque and speed continuously for safer operation and the highest rotation speed available on a commercial tire changer.
The T7800 has all of the features of the T7700 along with a lower bead camera viewer, on-floor bead breaker and QuickLok technology that's designed to improve shop productivity, the company said. It also carries a set of standard accessories, including a reverse-mount wheel kit and light truck kit for shops to service a wider range of wheels.
