  • Hunter’s proprietary HunterNet® software has been enhanced with the Quick View feature, which showcases vehicle service needs at a glance. HunterNet Quick View allows service advisors to quickly know the status of vehicle inspections and to recommend service directly from the lane. This tool also makes it easier to capitalize on every service opportunity and sell more work.

    HunterNet Quick View shows a visual report of all recent inspection results including colored icons to indicate wheel alignment, tire tread depth, tire inflation, battery health, diagnostic codes and braking balance. These icons appear green, yellow or red to indicate level of need and allow service advisors to pinpoint sales opportunities. Each entry in HunterNet Quick View™ is personalized with vehicle information including a vehicle photo and license plate when equipped with Hunter Quick ID technology.

    HunterNet® links your service department to your business by storing inspection results, alignment data and spec updates. Front-shop personnel can access informational videos, animations, TPMSpecs® and illustrations in HunterNet® to help customers make informed repair decisions. Shop management can generate reports on usage and repair opportunities for Quick Check®, Quick Tread® and alignment services.

  • Hunter is proud to feature the new AutoComp Elite brake lathe in Booth #737 at NADA 2017.

    AutoComp™ Elite’s patent pending automatic compensation technology directly determines the position of the internal compensation plates to maximize speed and accuracy without operator intervention. The result is the fastest, highest quality brake job possible.

    The new 7" touchscreen provides a user-friendly interface that allows technicians to quickly look up required adaptors, operate the lathe including changing cutting direction and speed, and view instructional videos. The interface also includes the BitMinder feature which monitors bit life and recommends replacement to improve cut quality and reduce waste.

    AutoComp Elite also includes patented Anti-Chatter Technology (ACT) which eliminates the buildup of vibration (chatter) that can occur when machining rotors at a fixed speed. This provides the smoothest possible rotor finish without the use of chatter bands or other cumbersome devices.

    Hunter Engineering Company® is the global leader in alignment systems, wheel and tire service, brake service and inspection lane equipment. Hunter® equipment is approved and used by vehicle manufacturers, automobile and truck dealers, tire dealers and service facilities around the world.

  • Visit Hunter’s booth at NADA 2017 (booth #737) to see how you can boost customer retention and increase tire sales!

    The new Hunter inspection technology automatically measures tire tread depth and captures vehicle identification in seconds as the customer drives through the service lane. Advisors are able to immediately pinpoint tire replacement opportunities and easily present tire offers in ‘good, better, best’ format. 

    Approximately 25% of all customer tires are in need of immediate replacement or will need to be replaced soon. By auditing every vehicle and presenting timely, informative tire offers, shops are able to dramatically increasing customer tire sales. Studies show 78% of consumers maintain their vehicle where they purchase tires.  Furthermore, motorists are more likely to buy a new vehicle from a dealer where they also get tires.

  • The Road Force® Elite from Hunter is the fastest diagnostic wheel balancer on the market and performs both a traditional balance and Road Force Measurement® in less time than it takes to complete a conventional balance.

    Hunter’s patented vision system determines wheel dimensions and wheel runout measurements on the Road Force® Elite to save time, eliminate data entry errors, ensure accuracy and enhance ease-of-use. The vision system also completes a 3D scan of the wheel. This scan enhances Hunter’s patented SmartWeight® technology, making Road Force® Elite the most accurate and efficient balancer on the market. The system also features automatic spoke detection, which guides technicians to place wheel weights behind the spokes.

    The Road Force® Elite is Hunter’s fifth generation design to utilize a loaded roller since the platform was introduced in 1997. The Road Force® Elite load roller applies up to 1,250 lbs. of force against the tire to measure the assembly as it would perform under the weight of the vehicle. Force Matching® guides the technician to index and match the lowest spot on the rim with the stiffest spot on the tire to capture the best possible ride and prevent comebacks.

    The load roller also automatically measures lateral force with StraightTrak®, which diagnoses and solves tire pull. Tire conicity can only be measured accurately when the tire is under load, so Road Force Measurement® is a must.

    The Road Force® Elite also reports to HunterNet®, Hunter's proprietary web-based data service. HunterNet® features helpful work management tools, the ability to access data in real time to track machine usage, performance and create reports.

    The HawkEye Elite™ wheel alignment system takes just 90-seconds to chock wheels and raise the lift to work height, mount targets and set air pressure, roll forward to compensate sensors, scan VIN numbers and print vehicle results automatically.
