Mechanize Your Mounting Processes with RAV Heavy Duty Tire Changers
RAV truck tire machines are known all over for their speed, reliability, and simplicity. The days of manual tire mounting are coming to a close simply because valuable employees are so hard to find and retain. These innovative heavy duty tire changers take most of the work out of the process and eliminates most all of the wear and tear on the human body. These truck tire machines are ideal for regular mounting duties and many leading commercial tire dealers are centering their mounted wheel programs around the GTB-16N Pilot model. Many of our customers report daily cycle counts of 100 tires or more per machine and we have heard of counts as high as 200 tires per day. This is a true testimony to the quality and reliability of our heavy duty tire changers.
You can greatly reduce the risk of loss time accidents and injuries by investing in a RAV truck tire machine. Good employees are simply too difficult to find and even more difficult to keep. They cannot stay with you if they are constantly fatigued from manual tire changing. To manually change a truck tire the assembly must be picked up off the floor at least twice and tire hammers must be used. Both of these actions invite the risk of injury and wear and tear on the body. Workmen’s compensation claims now average more than $75,000 each and that does not even consider the loss time off the job or having to secure another employee to take their place while they are off work. RAV heavy duty tire changers do the lifting and the heavy work so that your people do not have to.
These truck tire changers are also very versatile. Speaking of the GTB-16N Pilot and the GRS-926 Scout, they will both clamp a wheel center hole as small as 4″ in diameter. This means that they are ideal for difficult light and medium duty assemblies such as the super duty 17.5″ and 19.5″. Some of our commercial customers have these machines dedicated to these hard to change tires that are so common on delivery and work vehicles.
Wide based tires and wheels pose no particular problem or risk for our truck tire machines. The risk of bead damage is also minimized by our patented bead saver arm. The RAV heavy duty tire changers do all the lifting and all the bead breaking work so the operator is not compromised and therefore your productivity and efficiencies are increased.

Workplace injuries due to manual tire mounting processes present a risk to businesses and employees alike. Good employees are more difficult than ever to find and to retain. Why ask a good employee to swing a tire hammer day in and day out when a machine can do the hard work for you. Why ask a good employee to lift heavy tire and wheel assemblies all day and risk back injury when our tire changing machines do the lifting for you.
Workmen’s compensation claims now average almost $100,000 per occurrence. A RAV HD tire mounting machine can cost you as little as $10 per day. Automate your tire mounting processes and reap the benefits.
In addition to achieving a safer and happier workplace you can also improve your efficiency. The RAV tire changers work every day for you and their speed is unmatched. Manual tire changing might be as efficient for one or two sets of tires but after a while the machine will always prevail.
Another great benefit to using RAV tire machines is a reduced risk of bead tear. Used properly, these machines make it difficult to damage the bead.
