Ranger R745 Tire Changer
The Ranger R745 NextGen Tire Changer is the perfect no frills tire changer for entry level tire and wheel service. The Ranger R745 is a rigid tower tire machine designed to handle the needs of heavy volume tire shops. A sturdy body, rigid 45mm hexagonal vertical shaft, and hardened-steel horizontal outrigger support arm eliminates flex during all tire service procedures to reduce the chance of expensive wheels getting damaged.
A supersize turntable provides an internal clamping capacity of 21" and external clamping capacity of 18". With a long list of time-saving features and a powerful pneumatic optional assist helper, you’ll safely mount low-profile performance tires and wheels with little effort.
High-Torque Electric Turntable
A new high-torque electric turntable drive features increased speed and reversible direction for quicker tire removal and installation. Controlled speed gives low profile and run-flat beads time to relax to reduce the risk of damage.
Enhanced Bead Breaker Arm
Enhanced bead breaker arm features rugged box frame construction that increases the mechanical strength and assures years of dependable service and performance. A large rubber bump‐stop assures smooth return to help reduce shock loading and minimize wear on pneumatic cylinder, guides and associated moving parts.
Forged Steel Foot Pedal Levers
Durable forged steel (instead of cast iron) foot pedal levers will stand up to everyday use and abuse in high‐volume tire centers. Snap action spring return means precise and controlled operation.
All main‐lead electrical terminals, auxiliary switches, and motor enclosures are sealed for air‐tight, dust‐free and contamination proof protection of terminal leads.
High-Pressure Polyurethane Pneumatic Tubing
Ranger Next Generation™ tire changers feature high pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing with mirror smooth seamless bore for exceptional flow rates, high abrasion resistance, high burst tolerance and maximum kink resistance.
Specially Engineered Drive-Belt
Specially engineered drive‐belt features convex sidewalls to distribute wear evenly while providing proper belt support for improved service life. Flex‐bonded cords and flex‐weave covers resist the effects of oil, heat, ozone, weather and aging.
A maintenance-free gearbox features a large oil and grease reservoir that helps provide efficient heat dissipation and improved lubrication for longer service life. Internal baffles and a constant seating stress flange gasket assure positive, leak‐free venting.
RimGuard™ Wheel Clamp
Durable, hardened, alloy‐steel RimGuard™ wheel clamps features internal and external multi‐teeth jaws with vertical mounting bolts that make replacement fast and simple.
Up Front Controls
Up front controls and a sensible ergonomic design provide ease of use and more efficient operation.
Aluminum Pneumatic Cylinders
Stainless‐steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders are designed to reduce machine vibration and provide low‐friction and long life operation. Internal end‐of‐stroke cushions are standard that help provide cushioning at the end of each full stroke to recue wear on seals, wear band and piston rod. Permanent lubrication design provides outstanding service life.
Alloy Steel Mount & Demount Head
A hardened alloy steel mount and demount head has a unique equidimensional shape that allows you to perform all changing functions with the tool head in the same position. The micro‐smooth tool head surface glides tire beads effortlessly during mounting and demounting procedures to ensure costly tire damage is minimized.
All The Extras Come Standard
Important wheel service accessories come standard like a large soap bucket with brush and a 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.
Tire Iron & Bead Lever Tool
We throw in a hardened steel tire iron and bead lever tool to assist during all tire mounting and demounting operations.
45mm Spring Assist Hexagonal Vertical Tool Shaft
A rigid 45mm spring assist hexagonal vertical tool shaft combined with a hardened‐steel horizontal outrigger support arm maintains perfect position of the mount‐demount tool head during all tire service procedures to reduce the chance of expensive wheels getting damaged. All moving parts feature maintenance free linear guide bearings for easy adjustment of both vertical and horizontal wheel settings. The non‐flex horizontal arm also features a hardened lower roller guide for smooth and controlled in and out movement. Integrated rubber bump stops assure smooth return during tilt‐back operations to help reduce shock loading and minimize wear on tower guides and moving parts.
Tire Inflator Features
A simple to use pistol type tire inflator features a sure‐grip clip‐on valve chuck enabling hands‐free operation.
Plenty of Storage
Plenty of storage area for tools and accessories. Helps keep your shop tidy and operation‐critical tools close at hand.
Optional motorcycle turntable clamps add a whole extra level of versatility. Expand your capabilities, clientele and your bottom line.
