Hofmann Introduces Fusion Wheel Balancer, Tyre Changer
Hofmann, a brand within Snap-on Equipment, has unveiled its new duo of machines under the brand name Fusion. The company says that the wheel balancer and tyre changer both aim to be class leading. They are available as a package for £3,999, including a 24-month parts and labour warranty, delivery, installation and training.
Chris Behan, general manager, Snap-on Equipment, comments: “The Fusion wheel balancer and tyre changer duo is a high specification package that offers legendary Hofmann quality at a very competitive price. Pound for pound, I believe there is no better deal around, especially when you consider the two-year warranty, delivery, installation and training included.”
Features on the Hofmann geodyna Fusion wheel balancer include patented “Virtual Plane Measurement” for increased accuracy, regardless of ambient conditions, the automated input of wheel rim to machine distance and an easy ALU mode for the automatic pre-selection of balance weight locations. A geodata gauge arm is used for what the company says is quick and precise balance weight placement. The geodyna Fusion can be purchased separately for £1,599.
The monty FUSION tyre changer features a 26” clamping range through the use of Plus 6 adapters that are supplied as standard, as is an easymont pro helper arm for safer, gentler mounting and demounting of low profile and run-flat tyres. A plastic demount head for alloy rims and quick-change head system is also included. The monty Fusion can be purchased separately for £2,799.
