Hunter’s new Road Force Touch balancer provides superior wheel service with record efficiency
Bridgeton, MO – Built on Hunter’s GSP9700 legacy, the Road Force Touch® produces exceptional balancing results and performs a Road Force® diagnostic test faster than a traditional wheel balancer performs a typical balance.
During the balancing process, the Road Force Touch automatically applies Hunter’s patented load roller against the wheel and tire assembly to simulate how a wheel performs under the weight of a vehicle to find hidden causes of vibration and vehicle pull. The automated Road Force test enhances the quality of service and opens the door to more revenue-generating opportunities without adding valuable service time.
The Road Force Touch also features a new intuitive touchscreen interface that simplifies operation and shortens the learning curve for new technicians. Technicians can activate any balancing function from one screen by touching the appropriate button or icon, saving time over scrolling through a grid of menu buttons. Live 3D graphics and animations display real-time wheel conditions and illustrate easy-to-understand instructions to resolve vibration and pull problems.
New software tools include eCal™ auto-calibration, on-demand videos, and a powerful enhancement to StraightTrak® lateral force measurement:
Other improvements include a stronger, wear-resistant balancer shaft for long-lasting service, an Auto-Up Hood that saves time by automatically lifting the hood for the operator, and a standard 10-piece mounting collet set with storage to optimize wheel centering.
- Patent-pending eCal electronically and automatically calibrates the balancer without any input from the operator, making the Road Force Touch the only true “self-calibrating” balancer.
- On-demand videos provide convenient training on a variety of balancing and tire changing topics to enhance operator skills.
- Patented StraightTrak, which measures pull forces in tires and recommends wheel placement to cancel vehicle drift, now measures pulls on individual tires.
