  • Hunter Road Force® Elite balancer update 4.0 released!

    Miscentering during wheel balancing is a major cause of improper balancing and customer comebacks.­­ Hunter’s Road Force® Elite features Automatic CenteringCheck® technology with new 4.0 software that checks assembly centering on every spin and notifies the technician of improper centering. The result is improved quality, increased shop efficiency and customer retention.

  • New! Revolution WalkAway capability halves the technician’s time operating the tire changer when active

    The Revolution™ tire changer with WalkAway™ capability features 80-seconds of autonomous bead breaking and demounting that can be performed without an operator present. That’s a 57% reduction in operator time on the tire changer! The Revolution™ allows the operator to “walk away” freeing them up to perform balancing procedures or other shop tasks during the longest portion of the tire changing action. WalkAway™ also reduces operator effort and potential errors.

    You can increase shop capacity with Revolution WalkAway! See it in action.

    WalkAway™ increases the automatic and autonomous operation of the Revolution™ tire changer to save technicians time, effort and mistakes. When paired with wheel balancing, over 25% total time savings is possible for set of four tires. During WalkAway™ the operator simply loads and unloads the assembly, orients the TPMS, enables WalkAway™ then offloads the old tire.

    Tire changing is an all-day task, not a race for single tires. Assembly after assembly, the partially autonomous Revolution™ outpaces conventional tire changing equipment and now WalkAway™ adds even more capacity. Most technicians mount and balance assemblys sequentially. First demounting and mounting all four tires, then balancing all four assemblies. The Revolution™ featuring WalkAway™ frees the operator to balance assemblies while the Revolution™ demounts the next tire – autonomously – saving time, adding capacity, and reducing the time technicians spend on each job.

    Self-monitoring WalkAway™ can be easily set for tires two through four in a set. A status indicator lamp signals when the machine is in operation, stopped or requires operator interaction. The Revolution™ also features additional autonomous functions such as WalkAway™ inflation and WalkAway™ bead massage.

    The Revolution™ tire changer with WalkAway™ will be demonstrated alongside Hunter’s Road Force® Elite diagnostic wheel balaner at NADA 2018 in booth #2040C.

  • Hunter releases new Quick Tread® console for automatic inspection technology!

    Hunter’s Quick Tread® automatic inspection technology measures tire tread depth and captures vehicle identification in seconds as motorists drive into the service lane. This simple drive through system automatically identifies service needs to drive traffic from the service drive to your shop. The new, compact console provides a clean installation virtually anywhere in or nearby the service drive thereby saving valuable space.

    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 Quick Tread® console includes everything needed to run a fully-automatic inspection lane. Quick Tread® can be easily integrated with multi-point inspection providers to supply digital inspection reports and tire offers to customers. The new Quick Tread® console can also be connected to a network printer at the service desk to provide customers inspection result printouts.

  • AutoComp Elite®

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Other wheel alignment machines don’t come close to matching the productivity and profit enhancing power of the HawkEye Elite™ wheel alignment system. 

    This wheel aligner uses four precision cameras to measure the position and orientation of targets mounted to each wheel using Hunter’s patented QuickGrip™ adaptors. QuickGrip adaptors feature spring-loaded arms that grip the tire, eliminating metal-to-metal contact and subsequent rim damage. 

    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. 

    Say goodbye to wasted shop time and those obsolete wheel alignment machines by adding the top-of-the-line HawkEye Elite™ wheel alignment system to your shop today.
