Hofmann Megaplan introduces new, low-priced leverless tyre changer
Tyre equipment specialist Hofmann Megaplan recently introduced a new ‘lever-less’ tyre changer, which the company claims is the best priced, premium quality leverless tyre changer ever produced. The megamount 700 ‘evo’ utilises the hugely popular ‘evolution’ leverless device that is employed as an optional upgrade on other megamount models from Hofmann Megaplan. In addition, Hofmann Megaplan says a 24-inch turntable, the inclusion of ‘megafit 2’ assist arm and hands-free ‘Power Out’ bead breaker ensure the new model is equipped to cope in any environment. Utilising the chassis from the ubiquitous megamount 702XL, the 700 achieves an attractive price tag by removing some of the luxury features associated with its bigger brother.
“We have recognised that tyre and rim design is dictating tyre shops to more advanced fitting equipment, and that really means lever-less”, comments Hofmann Megaplan managing director James Boon. “However because lever-less operation naturally tends to find its place on top of the range models, some shops just can’t live with the cost. So with the megamount 700 evo we have introduced a machine that is within reach of even the most modest business, without compromising on quality.”
Another new addition to the extensive line-up from Hofmann Megaplan is the Junior Professional Plus wheel balancer. This new fully automatic (3D) model boasts a colour 8-inch TFT display integrated into the weight tray. Readings and movements are shown in real time, and weight location options are highlighted for the operator to choose in the simplest format possible.
The megamount 700 evo and Junior Professional Plus are currently being promoted as a package with an attractive ‘launch’ price, and is available through the company’s nationwide distribution or by calling Hofmann Megaplan directly.
