Hunter’s TCX620HD and TCX640HD heavy-duty truck tire changers are designed to meet the specific needs of shops servicing the heavy-duty truck and commercial vehicle market.

The TCX620HD is a compact design machine optimized for over-the-road truck wheels, including super-singles; it combines an efficient electrohydraulic power system with a mount-demount roller mechanism for faster, safer operation. The TCX620HD employs twin rollers to quickly and easily break beads and demount/mount tires without damage to the tire or rim, the company says.

The TCX640HD combines a range of features and capabilities to make wheel service for trucks, buses, tractors and other specialized equipment faster and easier, according to Hunter; it employs power systems and design features similar to the TCX620HD, but adds a standard clamping capacity of up to 46 inches and 56 inches using optional accessories.

All spindle and wheel carriage operations for both the TCX620HD and TCX640HD are controlled from a single control box. The TCX620HD control box is mounted to a pivoting arm that allows the technician to move about the tire changer as needed during service procedures. Controls for the TCX640HD are mounted to a movable pedestal that can be positioned anywhere around the tire changer for additional safety and visibility of operations.
