A powerful press

Tyre changers from Pro-Align

Published:  23 May, 2014

Pro-Align's range of tyre changers has grown with the addition of the TCX 578 and TCX 565 models. The TCX 578 leverless model avoids damaging rims and uses an intuitive central clamping system, accommodating wheels ranging from 12" to 32". A powerful bead press system is said to make demounting and match-mounting the tyres an easy task. Meanwhile, the TCX 565 is a more traditional piece of equipment offering big power in a lower tech package. It can accomodate a similarly large range of wheel sizes and has a two speed, high-torque motor. Both systems feature Hunter's automatic space-saving swing arm column.
