Fairway Tyres (Hatfield)

Fairway Tyres have their new tyre changer installed into their busy workshop.

Arguably the most heavy duty and functional tyre changer on the market, the 713XL Racing is in a class of its own – there is simply not another tyre changer on the market to match it for strength, durability, performance, or ease of use!

Designed to handle the toughest low profile/alloy rim combinations and the highest volumes without any stress to the operator or the machine, it incorporates a patented quick release system enabling the demount heads to be changed over from standard steel head to plastic or ‘raised spoke’ heads, and utilises the ORIGINAL and still the BEST twin assist arm system ‘megafit Pro Duo’.

In addition, the unique QuadraClamp turntable boasts 4 clamping cylinders offering 10” to 26” capability without the need for awkward adjustments or extensions, increased clamping power, and an incredible but genuine reliability statistic of zero failures since its introduction in 2006.

The 713XL and its predecessors have become the preferred choice for those where, quite simply, only the best will do.

Dick Lovett (Hungerford)

Dick Lovett BMW & Mini replaced their old Hofmann-Megaplan’s tyre changer for a newer model…

The megamount 603 evolution…..

(The evolution, a simple thumb operated control lowers the ‘finger’ under the bead of the tyre and lifts the bead over the rim without effort. The finger is protected by a replaceable Kevlar cover for total piece of mind, and all other actions such as bead breaking and clamping are the same as that of the conventional versions. This gives the operator the benefit of lever-less operation combined with the familiarity of conventional tyre changing to which they will have become accustomed).

The Tyre Centre (Llandudno)

The Tyre Centre upgrade from their M/M302 for our upgraded model.

The megamount 303 Racing……
The heavy duty, semi-automatic tyre changer boasting a unique specification for what would normally be regarded as an entry level model – but calling this ‘entry level’ is doing the machine an injustice!
The megamount 303 has been designed for those customers that don’t have room for a tilt-arm machine (or maybe just like their old swing arm!) but still need to be able to cater for modern rim and tyre assemblies. With this in mind, the megamount 303 provides a massive 24” rim clamping capability, necessary for handling alloys up to 22” diameter, an oversized ‘racing’ chassis, and the inclusion of the new and unique ‘megafit duo light’ twin assist arm system essential for making light work of stiff, low profile and run-flat tyres. Additionally, this brand new 2014 model boasts an increased turret height and bead breaker opening in order to handle rims up to 14” wide.

The Knights Group (Stafford)

The Knights Group, BMW and Mini replace their old tyre changer for one of our latest leverless machines.

The megamount EASY,

This machine represents an alternative style of tyre changer, where manual effort is reduced to a minimum, and the emphasis is on larger rims fitted with low profile tyres.

An integral wheel lifter makes light work of the heaviest assemblies, and the Quick-Lock centre post clamping ensures there is no contact with the outer edge of the rim. The ‘lever-less’ Evolution system means that the tyre is removed at the flick of a switch rather than strenuous leverage with the traditional tyre lever. Unlike many other ‘Next Generation’ tyre changers on the market, the EASYwas designed with one major focus; simplicity. In every element of the tyre fitting and removal process, the directive has been to ensure that operation remains simple, minimising the number of controls and functions.

All in all, we expect a machine like the EASY to become a standard fixture in the modern tyre shop.
