The new Two-Speed Tilt-Back Tire Changer (EEWH326A) from Snap-on will reduce the amount of time it takes to dismount and mount tires. This tire changer features a two-speed turntable that offers a forward speed of 14 rpm to provide faster throughput when mounting the initial bead.

The Two-Speed Tilt-Back Tire Changer has a laser guided mount/dismount head that helps prevent contact with the rim and speeds up the alignment process, provides the technician with an added level of precision. It features a tilt-back design and three-position bead breaker.
