CONWAY, Ark. — Snap-on Inc. has unveiled the Hofmann monty 1675 Swing Arm Tire Changer for servicing passenger car, light truck and high-performance wheel and tire assemblies.
"The ergonomic design and safety-enhancing features of the new Hofmann 1675 tire changer provides the user a safe work space when changing a variety of tires," Adam Brown, director of product management for Hofmann, said. "The 1675 is easy to set up, simple to use and offers a large range of capacity."
The Hofmann swing-arm tire changer features the patented smartSpeed technology to minimize the risk of damage to tires. The technology optimizes the torque applied to the wheel and sets the maximum rotation speed of the wheel. The 1675 offers variable speeds from 7 to 18 RPM for maximum productivity, the company said.
The monty 1675 features precision-cast and machined shoes with cast jaws and the heavy-duty pneumatic valves offer intuitive functionality. The electric motor generates 1,200 Newton/meters of torque to the table top to mount stiff, difficult tires.
The tire changer also features a newly designed bead breaker control that is simple to operate and prevents the technician from having to straddle the assembly during bead breaking, the company said. An integrated pressure limiter helps stop air flow once pressure has reached 55 PSI, preventing accidental tire over-inflation.
The 1675 model is one of 14 models in the monty tire changer series.
