Tilt Back / Dual-Tower Assist / 10.16 cm Clamping Capacity
The R80EX tire changer features a dual-assist, tilt-back tower design, so it's outfitted with the industry's best and most powerful tools. With the R80EX, you get the classic, rugged reliability Ranger is known for, plus dozens of standard features.
Tire Changer / Swing Arm / Single-Tower Assist / 533 mm Capacity
The R980AT saves an impressive amount of space, making it ideal for small or cramped tire shops. Because it utilizes a swing-arm design and doesn't tilt back, it can be installed flush against a wall. An assist tower will help with stiffer sidewalls, run-flats and other low-profile tires. 762 mm clamping ability.
Tire Changer / Swing Arm / 762 mm Capacity
To get the space-saving benefits of the Ranger R980AT without the addition of an assist-tower, the R980XR is a perfect alternative tire changer. It's perfect for general repairs on a wide range of tires, including racing tires, pickup trucks and tire beads that won't put up much of a fight.
Tire Changer / Tilt-Back / 762 mm Capacity
If you like the versatility of the Ranger R76ATR but don't need its assist-tower feature, then Ranger's R76LT is a slightly stripped-down version that still performs rapid tire changes. Commonly found in general repair shops that see a wide range of tires, such as racing and light truck tires.
Tire Changer / Tilt-Back / Right-Tower Single Assist / 762 mm Capacity
The R76ATR is a brilliant time saver. Its tilt-back tower allows you to operate different tire-and-wheel combos without adjusting the duck head, and the swing-arm design with tower assist ensure stiff sidewalls are never a problem. RimGuard™ clamps extend 254 mm – 762 mm for maximum versatility.
Advanced NextGen™ Tire Changer Technology
When NextGen was first introduced, our entire line of professional-grade tire changing equipment was re-engineered and thrown into the real world for testing. Choosing the right tire changer allows shop owners and service operators to easily move through daily routines. Whether clamping a delicate rim or fixing a run-flat, these tire changers are as gentle as they are powerful. That's all thanks to our patented RimGuard™ protection technology. NOTE: Internal and external rim clamping dimensions do not translate directly to rim or tire sizes as rim clamping points may vary by manufacturer.
Tire Changer Convenience
Ranger's extensive tire changer lineup is one of the most impressive equipment offerings in the industry, with models designed to suit nearly every budget, automotive specialty and tire size. Some of Ranger's exciting innovations include a helpful drop-center top mount arm that firmly holds the tire in place during rotation. You'll also find a pneumatic wheel restraint device to keep the mounted wheel locked into place. Power-assist upper bead rollers assist in setting and breaking beads. Ranger features one of the largest wheel-clamping ranges in the industry, as well as power-assist mounting towers for even more versatility. You may want to consider a swing-arm tire changer, which gives you more options for unseating stubborn beads. In fact, a Ranger swing-arm tire changer just might change the way you look at wheel service for your client's car or truck.
Pneumatic Control Valves
Industrial-grade, 45-micron pneumatic control valves feature die cast and machined bodies constructed from zinc and aluminum. High-performance polyurethane seals and self-lubricating Teflon® piston guides increase the lifespan of your tire changer. Valve plungers feature muffled extrication ports that detect dirt or debris on the spool's perimeter and blow it away whenever the valve is set in the release position.
Sealed Electrical Components
All main-lead electrical terminals, auxiliary switches and motor enclosures are sealed to keep the terminal leads air-tight and dust-free.
Ranger Next Generation™ tire changers feature high-pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing with mirror-smooth seamless bores for exceptional flow rates, high resistance to abrasions and kinks and a high burst tolerance.
Never worry about maintaining gearbox components, as Ranger tire changer's gears are virtually zero-maintenance for the entire lifespan of the unit. A substantial oil and grease reservoir dissipates heat and self-lubricates the entire system, extending the life of your tire changer. Internal baffles and seated stress flange gasket ensure venting and prevent any leaks. The gearbox enclosure is precision-milled for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases, and precision helical gears function better than typical spur gear transmissions, providing maximum durability and precision under load during worm and gear alignment.
Updated Electric Motor
Our tire changers are fitted with advanced electric motors: copper rotor construction, high-quality bearings, thermal-cool epoxy insulation and durable rolled steel frames are standard on every motor we put in your shop.
Ranger tire changers come complete with space to keep your tools. This, of course, helps you keep a more efficient and highly organized workspace.
A rugged, stainless steel, braided metal conduit keeps your hoses and wires protected at all times.
Standard Wheel Service Accessories
Important wheel service accessories come standard, like a large soap bucket with a brush and multi-piece plastic wheel protector kit that includes turntable jaw covers, bead-breaker blade boots and specialized mount/demount head covers to help protect delicate wheels. We throw in a hardened steel tire iron and bead lever tool to assist during all tire mounting and demounting operations.
Innovative and Easy to Use
All applicable tire changers offer upfront foot controls complete with clearly marked, conveniently laid out decals. Other innovations include tilt-back towers for increased clearance, large bead-breaking blades, powerful high-torque turntables, a jet-blast pistol inflation gauge with air dump valve and a fully-adjustable tool bar. All of this comes packed in an easy-to-use, free-standing console that's as safe as it is efficient.
