No Lifting of the Tire and Wheel

The Ravaglioli GTB-16N Heavy Duty Truck and Bus Tire Changer does all the heavy lifting. How many times have you watched your employees lift a 200 lb wide based assembly that is lying flat on the floor. With the Pilot you simply roll the tire and wheel up to the machine and slide it toward the clamping jaws. With a push of a button the wheel is safely clamped to the machine’s rotatable jaws. With another push of the button the machine lifts the tire and wheel off the floor to a desirable working height.

The Pilot Conserves Your Floor Space

How valuable is your workspace? How many times have you witnessed a group of tires lying face down on your shop floor devouring precious floor space? The Pilot changes the tire standing up instead of lying down. The footprint of the machine is small because its design is vertically oriented. Improve the productivity of your available floor space and you will improve your overall efficiency.

Automate Your Practices and Procedures

Manual tire changing is a 20th century concept that is no longer practical. Automation has been one of the keys to improved efficiency and now you can embrace it in your tire changing operations. Until now there has been no design improvements in truck tire changers that caused the industry to re-think its practices. The Pilot is the first major machine design improvement in over 30 years.
