How to find the right wheel balancer for your shop
Choosing the best wheel balancer for your shop is an important decision. Below is a list of things to consider when researching both diagnostic and heavy-duty wheel balancers. When you are ready to learn more or want to see a Hunter wheel balancer in action, you can reach out to your local Hunter team, who can provide detailed product information, on-site demos and pricing information.
Is the system intuitive? An intuitive, easy-to-use interface will increase employee effectiveness.
Centering errors are a major cause of customer comebacks. Make sure the wheel balancer you are considering can easily verify a wheel is centered properly.
A properly balanced wheel doesn't always roll smoothly. A machine that can take the assembly for a test drive will ensure satisfied customers.
A wheel balancer with included training assistance increases the value of your investment. On-board training videos simplify training and improves overall balance.
TPMS systems are a fact of life when dealing with modern wheels and tires. A resident lookup database will make technicians faster and more efficient.
Make sure the wheel balancer you are considering has a durable balancer shaft that is designed to last for the life of the machine.
Tire Pull Diagnostics
Radial tire pull can be difficult to diagnose. A wheel balancer that can measure it can allow your tech to find a pull problem before your customer does.
A wheel balancer should last a very long time, be sure to choose one that is built to last. Hunter Engineering has local representatives that can visit your shop and help you choose the right wheel balancer to fit your needs.
Make sure the manufacturer supports their products in the field with a team of reliable service representatives.
