Atlas® Automotive Equipment Quick Change Head Assembly for TC200/700 Series
Does NOT fit Atlas® 400 series and 500 series or Coseng 788 tire changers.
The Atlas® Quick Change Head Assembly is designed for the tire service center that works on both factory steel wheels and alloy custom rims. All Atlas® tire changers come standard with a metal mount/demount head. These metal heads have two plastic inserts that help to protect the wheels from contact with the metal head. However, many customers feel more confident using a COMPLETE PLASTIC M/D HEAD when changing after market alloy wheels.
We understand it takes quite a while to remove a metal head and attach a plastic head to your wheel clamp tire changer. We have developed a quick change system that allows the tire changer operator to switch mount/demount heads in less than 30 seconds.
If the customer uses a steel head (even with the plastic protector inserts), there is still the risk of damage to an alloy wheel. If the customer uses a plastic mount/demount head for steel wheels, then the plastic head will not last very long. Plastic heads are expensive.
We all know that if it takes 5 minutes...and a lot of tools...to change from the steel mount/demount head to the plastic head (and vice versa)...then the tire changer operator will not bother to change to the correct head. Tire changer guys are basically lazy.
The Atlas® quick change kit includes everything you need to protect the most expensive alloy rims and also service the multitude of steel rims that come into your shop.
