When you‘re the own of a fleet of large commercial vehicles you soon get used to invoices flowing through the door for tyre replacement. South Essex Shareholders Ltd decided it was time to take delivery of their 1st truck tyre changer, to be installed into their busy workshop. The results thus far have been outstanding, saving them time, and more importantly money, normally spent on sending wheels out to be changed. Within a short space of time the machine has already paid for itself.
The megamount 352 is a beast of a machine and is the ideal machine for owner/operators and truck tyre specialists alike, the 352 makes light work of coach, bus and truck tyres, improving efficiency, profitability and labour (not to mention injuries to staff!).
A rim clamping capability up to 27” and a 1600mm O.D. (63”) makes the megamount 352 extremely versatile, whilst the 2 speed hydraulic chuck makes fast work of any job.
Available in 1ph or 3ph.
Following a exceptionally well received launch in Las Vegas back in February, the Hofmann Megaplan trans-Atlantic offering is really starting to take shape. With two impressive premium wheel balancers and two feature driven tyre (tire) changers in their armory to unleash on the US market.
The 420 is really special and contains The most advanced technology the industry has seen in a wheel balancer. The combination of revolutionary new technology, incredible simplicity, and typical Hofmann Megaplan reliability make this, in our opinion, the best value wheel balancer on the US market today.
Boasting ‘No Checkspin’ technology and 6 O’clock weight positioning, the megaspin 420 only requires the operator to select the weight position(s) and lower the hood – it’s that simple! There is no possibility for error, no chance of the machine throwing up an extra 5 or 10gms, and absolutely NO CHECKSPIN REQUIRED!
Like its sister model, the 820 shares the accolade of offering the most advanced technology the industry has seen in a wheel balancer. All packaged up with a highly visible LCD screen, which delievers acurate results.
As for the tyre changers, we are offering something really special and groundbreaking that should get the American market talking.
The new ‘Twister Evo” tyre changer from Hofmann Megaplan is a ‘game changing’ piece of Italian engineering that makes tyre changing ‘a dream’ for fitters. Its revolutionary design unitises an ‘up and around’, fully-automatic side-swinging motion, unseen in the market until now. One handed operation is here and could change the way a modern tyres are fitted.
Seeing is believing, so give us a call to see just how special this machine is.
The machines featured at the ToolExpo in Orlando, FL last week as part of the ISN groups annual customer tool show. Like everything in America this event is simply massive!
We’ll certainly be back for more next year!
Following another successful year at the Commercial Vehicle show where we had lots of fun demonstrating our latest commercial vehicle equipment. On product on show was ‘the beast’ – megamount 352 tyre changer for large wheels.
Renown Transport Services Ltd is one of the premier bus service and coach hire companies in the South East, operating our fleet of modern buses and luxury coaches from Bexhill on Sea. Having seen the machine they have now taken delivery and installation of a brand new truck tyre changer to service their busy garage.
The CV Show is the best attended, largest and the most comprehensive road transport and commercial vehicle event held in Britain, providing truck and van operators with far greater choice than any other exhibition serving this vital industry. The Show attracts close to 21,000 business visitors and its central location at the NEC Birmingham, ensures a truly nationwide attendance.
For fleet and rental companies, the number of sets of tyres that need changing may not be significant, in comparison to some full time garages, but the requirement can make significant savings. Northgate Vehicle Rental in Norwich had a requirement to change the tyres of returning vehicles but wanted a tyre changer with great functionality but with a price tag that justified the investment – The Ecomount 22 plus fitted that bill to the letter.
To help with the range of tyres Northgate needed change Hofmann Megaplan installed the simple but very effective Ecomount 22 plus with assist arms. The Ecomount is cost effective, fully-automatic tyre changer designed for use in garages usually that deal with lower volume situations – like rental or anybody looking for a well-priced unit capable of handling difficult tyres such as run-flat and ultra-low-profile.
Unlike other ‘budget’ models, the eco series from Hofmann Megaplan is designed to meet the price of those customers whose low volume dictates the need for a realistically priced unit, without compromising on reliability and long term support.

No building is to big or trailer to small, we will always be able to do the install….
With a limited amount of space and just one operator, dancing around a tyre changer was not the ideal solution for Discount Tyres (Kent). So a Megamount 303R seemed like just the ideal solution.
The megamount 303 Racing is a semi-automatic, space saving, high performance tyre changer designed for extreme/intensive use. Which it most certainly gets from Discount Tyres. Unlike discount ‘swing-arm’ machines, which are generally designed to meet a price point and not a quality standard, the megamount 303 is built for those customers who need a machine capable of handling the toughest rim & tyre combinations, but who don’t have the space for a typical high-performance machine.
Boasting 10” to 24” clamping (22” external) and extra-tall turret to cater for wide rims, the megamount 303 incorporates our unique ‘megafit pro-duo Lite’ robotic arm system to handle run-flats and low-profile tyres all from a 12v format, ideal for a mobile operation like this.
