Replacing an old truck tyre changer – Royal Mail Fleet (Chelmsford)

If Royal-Mail-trucksyou have owned a Hofmann megamount truck tyre changer, you’ll know the benefits:

  • Heavy duty construction
  • Proven design over many years
  • Relatively compact design and simple to use
  • Can handle rims up to 27” (63” O.D.)

But you’ll also know how invaluable they are in terms of time and cost saving. Sending tyres away to be fitted can be an expensive process and many are now choosing to change their own tyres in onsite workshops. One company to do this, is the Royal Mail Fleet in Chelmsford, who finally saw their truck tyre changer ‘give up the ghost’ this year.  They decided to replace it with Hofmann-Megaplan’s popular megamount 352 Truck tyre changer.image1-1

This machine is ideal for truck tyre specialists and makes light work of coach, bus and truck tyres, improving efficiency, profitability and labour. It also has significant advantages; 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.

This machine is available in both 1ph or 3ph.
