Hunter’s NEW TC3900 Leverless Tire Changer
Hunter is proud to announce the new TC3900 tire changer, a high-performance center-clamp tire changer with a bead press arm to assist in mounting difficult assemblies. The TC3900 also features a leverless mount head that positions the bead without levers and prevents damage to the tire and rim. The TC3900’s split bead roller system allows all bead breaking to be performed upright and makes bottom bead demounting of heavy and large diameter tires easy. The optional wheel lift package eases servicing of large assemblies and allows for more careful handling of expensive wheels.
Hunter’s NEW Revolution™ industry’s most advanced fully automatic tire changer!
The Revolution uses the same fully automatic process for all tire and wheel combinations, saving time on today’s diverse assemblies. The fully automatic process also eliminates the need for a skilled operator and reduces the experience gap of tire-changing teams by turning all technicians into experts. The Revolution’s intuitive touchscreen interface indicates the operator’s current step and monitors progress throughout the procedure. The touchscreen also stores 15 helpful on-board videos.
The fully automatic process places the operator away from the machine, increasing technician safety and eliminating pinch points. The Revolution also increases tire and wheel safety as all rim contact or near rim contact is plastic. The Revolution constantly monitors TPMS location and will not allow the tire to be mounted or demounted in an unsafe position.
The leverless tool head demounting hook automatically deploys to catch and lift the bead and the mount head is designed to work with clad, raised spoke and other unique wheel designs.
The Revolution features powered press arms for use when necessary for maximum control. Powered press arms adjust automatically when the diameter is set and power clockwise to prevent tire slippage. Damage free bead loosening rollers loosen even the most stuck on soft sidewall tires.

Hunter releases powerful new generation Swing-Arm tire changers!
Hunter Engineering Company has released a new generation of Swing-Arm tire changers with more rigidity, power and performance than models currently on the market. The TCX53 Performance, TCX51 Professional and TCX50 Standard tire changers are each heaviest in class with more stiffness to handle today’s tough tires. Each tire changer also uses Hunter’s PowerOut™ bead loosener for the most powerful in-class bead breaking capability.
New generation Swing-Arm tire changers feature an easy-to-use adjustable tabletop that provides a 10- to 26- inch clamping range. All four tabletop jaws adjust simultaneously for mistake-free clamping and hi-grip jaw covers add mounting torque and protect wheels. Each tire changer is available with a unique 110V or 220V motor that is faster than popular alternatives and doesn’t slow down under load like air motors.
The TCX53 Performance tire changer is 15% heavier than competing models and features Hunter’s patented bead press system with multiple press arms. The bead press system speeds and eases clamping, lubricating, demounting and mounting for the very toughest wheel and tire combinations. The patented design centers on the wheel to simplify operation.
The TCX51 Professional tire changer is 10% heavier than competing models and features the most power in-class bead press arm. The press arm pushes the tire into drop center for mounting and demounting operations and is built on the same frame as Hunter’s patented bead press system.
The TCX50 is a simplified version of the TCX53 Performance and the TCX51 Professional, but can be upgraded easily with optional bead press arm or bead press system.
Complementary, on-site demonstrations are available. Customers in North America may schedule demonstrations by contacting their local Hunter Heavy Duty Representative at www.hunter.com/demos
Hunter’s TCX tire changers now features new and improved bead loosener
The PowerOut system provides fingertip bead-loosening controls outside of the wheel on the shovel handle. This ergonomic design eliminates the foot-pedal control that often forces technicians into awkward positions when loosening beads.
By operating the loosener at a more efficient and comfortable position, technicians gain additional power, speed and control, especially when servicing large or wide assemblies.
