Power Assist Perfection + Tire Changer Protection
When you need a tire changer that will get the job done on virtually all commuter and passenger vehicles, including pick-up trucks and race cars, the space-saving R980AT might be exactly what you need. It features an assist tower to help unseat stiff, low-profile tire beads and run-flats. A centering cone it holds the bead in the drop-center, further helping protect the tire during external clamping procedures. This model is a perfect addition to full-service repair bays and general tire shops because it accommodates a wide range of tire-and-wheel combinations.

Power Assist Tower
The swing-arm on the R980AT is one of this tire changer’s most useful features. When dealing with run-flats and stubborn beads, the power assist tower will safely secure the edge of the tire, moving along with the activated turntable. The bead will almost always seat without a struggle. Try this on a stubborn bead without the swing-arm, and you’ll be at it for a while, wasting your precious time.

Electric Turntable
A high-torque electric turntable efficiently spins tires to seat or remove beads. With reverse-direction foot pedal controls, you’re in total charge of your tire changing operation. The turntable is the only electrical component in the tire changer (everything else is air-powered), and it requires very little support or maintenance over time.

Traveling Drop-center Top-mount Helper / Swing-in Bottom Helper Disc
Tough sidewalls? No problem. A traveling drop-center tool makes changing tires easy. Ranger tire changers offer increased safety and efficiency, and the drop-center tool is essential to the entire operation. A swing-in disc can also help loosen beads by using safe pneumatic power that won’t damage your tires.

Updated Electric Motor
Ranger motors have it all: rugged copper rotor construction, high-quality bearings, thermal-cool epoxy insulation and durable rolled steel frames.

Upfront Controls
Foot pedal controls make for hands-free operation of the turntable, and all pneumatic locks and switches are easy to reach.

Stainless Steel & Aluminum Pneumatic Cylinders
To ensure a low-friction environment, steel and aluminum cylinders work together to reduce machine vibrations. End-of-stroke cushioning protects seals, wear bands and pistons bands from excessive forces, prolonging the life of the tire changer.

Balanced Flywheel
Balanced flywheels also help reduce vibrations in your equipment. The less stress on your machine, the longer it lasts.

Bead-breaker Design
The bead-breaker’s speed is significantly increased due to our included bilateral pneumatic accelerators. They’re just as effective in reverse too! The cylinder won’t react if moisture is detected in the air. This eliminates any chance of rust or corrosion due to condensation or extreme humidity. A multi-axis, adjustable blade permits multi-angle tire capacity, while the large, dual-flange axle prevents the blade from flexing or failing.

Enhanced Bead-breaker Blade
Your Ranger tire changer features a powerful bead breaker blade that won’t stress the rest of the machine as it breaks beads, and it returns smoothly when it detaches from the tire. This smooth return reduces shock loading and wear on the cylinders.

Multi-function Mount & Demount Head
An equi-dimensional, hardened alloy steel mount and demount head assists tire beads during all tire changer operations. Protective plastic covers ensure steel never contacts the wheel, protecting custom and high-performance wheel types at all times. A 100% polymer head is also interchangeable with the steel head.

Pneumatic Control Valves
Industrial-grade, 45-micron, pneumatic control valves feature die cast and machined bodies constructed from zinc and aluminum. High-performance polyurethane seals and self-lubricating Teflon® piston guides help make your tire changer stronger and longer-lasting. Valve plungers feature muffled extrication ports that blow away dirt and other contaminants each time the valve goes into the release position.

Adjustable RimGuard™ Wheel Clamps
Ranger’s exclusive RimGuard™ wheel clamps come standard on the R980AT tire changer, and this massive turntable allows them to expand 30”. Dual multi-tooth jaw sets permit internal and external clamping, and the vertical-mount design reduces the time you spend on each tire.

Easier Bead Lubrication
Your R980AT tire changer has a geometric tabletop that makes bead lubrication fast and easy to inspect.

Simple Foot-pedal Control
No heavy, rusted-out cast-iron foot pedals here! Forged steel is long-lasting, lightweight, durable and won’t corrode over time. The snap-action pedals immediately return to starting positions when released. The pedals’ high responsiveness prevents tire tears and considerably speeds up operations. Multi-link rod connections support non-binding plunger movement and better bilateral control.

Pneumatic Tubing
High-pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing is outfitted with a seamless bore for better flow rates. The tire changer also benefits from high abrasion resistance, high burst tolerance and maximum kink resistance..

TurboBlast™ Bead Seating
Ranger’s TurboBlast™ bead seater is a Ranger tire changer exclusive. It simply forces air into tires with stubborn beads, seating them quickly when simple inflation won’t do the trick. A nylon discharge barrel has a locking tab that sits right on the edge of the rim. This design makes it easy to aim and control the intense air burst.

Maintenance-free Gearbox
You’ll enjoy your tire changer’s hands-off gearbox. It never needs maintenance and has a massive oil and grease reservoir for improved heat dissipation and component lubrication. Internal baffles and a constant seating stress flange gasket assure positive, leak-free venting. Also to your benefit, Ranger prefers precision helical gears in our tire changers instead of loud, clunky spur gear transmissions.

Standard Wheel Service Accessories
Get more with your tire changer purchase. We include a soap bucket and brush, plastic wheel protector kit with turntable jaw covers, bead-breaker blade boots, specialized mount/demount head covers and a hardened steel tire iron and bead lever tool.

Sealed Electrical Components
None of the electrical terminals, auxiliary switches or motor enclosures are left unprotected. Dust and other shop contaminants are kept out too. The internal cavity of your tire changer will always be clean—another way we extend the life of your equipment.

Advanced Drive Belt System
The R980AT has a drive belt that evenly disperses wear and improves belt support. Flex-bonded cords and flex-weave covers keep away oil, heat and other contaminants that threaten the efficiency of the machine.

Spring-assisted Tool Shaft
A 45 mm spring-assisted hexagonal vertical tool shaft and hardened-steel horizontal outrigger support arm ensure the mount-demount tool head remains stable and precisely aimed.

Foot-controlled Tire Inflator
Inflate tires without lifting a finger. The tire changer features a sure-grip clip-on valve chuck on the inflation hose (for hands-free operation), and an air pressure dump valve lets you release air from the tire.

Optional Motorcycle Clamps
Your Ranger R980AT tire changer is more than capable of handling motorcycle tires. Motorcycle clamps are sold separately and increase your shop’s service capabilities.


Ranger LS43B 3D Quick-Touch™ Laser-Spot™ Wheel Balancer w/36 mm Shaft

Supreme Speed and Amazing Accuracy

The Ranger LS43B wheel balancer handles wheels up to 43inches in diameter. The average cycle time is just 7 seconds, making it one of the fastest and most reliable balancing machines ever built. The standout feature on this model, of course, is Ranger's exclusive 3D Quick-Touch™ Laser-Spot™ technology that highlights the pinpoint location at which operators should place the minimal amount of weight in order to achieve a perfect balance at the 6 o'clock position. Ranger makes it easy to seamlessly determine the exact weight placement position. Only a single weight placement should be necessary for most wheel and tire configurations.

4 Smart Reasons to Get a Laser Wheel Balancer

Laser-Spot Technology
Laser balancers are increasingly being used in high-volume shops because lasers eliminate second-guessing and speed up weight placements. This also means the balance check you perform after placing inboard and outboard weights will almost always be clean. The fewer weights you use, the better your bottom line. Plus, customers will enjoy long-lasting balances that make their rides feel like new again. When ALU modes are selected and stick-on weights are desired, instinctive lasers mark the low-side of the wheel at the 6-o’-clock position, making stick-on weight placement and installation a breeze. When it’s time for clip-on weights, the intuitive data control automatically senses that topside weight positioning is desired and pinpoints the laser at precisely 12-o’-clock. Laser-Spot™ weight-positioning lasers provide greater weight placement accuracy and help reduce mistakes. More single-spin balances and fewer customer comebacks will increase productivity and profits. It’s that easy.

Automatic Wheel Data Entry
This balancer features Ranger's exclusive 3D Auto Data Entry technology, so you never have to manually input wheel parameters again. It takes most techs an average of three seconds to retrieve the wheel diameter, wheel width and offset distance from this balancer. Our extendable DataWand™ automatically retrieves all outer-wheel information, while the inner data set arm detects the offset distance between the machine and your tire-and-wheel configuration. Highly precise digital sensor technology.

Ranger's highly accurate Digital Sensor Technology features a 16-digit digital signal processor and single-chip technology that increases productivity and offers unprecedented speed and accuracy, especially during the sophisticated balance and weight placement techniques required for newer high-tech OEM and aftermarket wheels.

As soon as you lower the spacious wheel hood, the LS43B laser balancer spins into action, delivering precise outboard and inboard weight placements in mere seconds. Static, dynamic and ALU weight placement options can be pre-selected or retrieved simultaneously after a single spin, so you're always able to choose the option that best suits your particular wheel profile.

Automatic Braking
After a quick spin of the wheel, a dual-plane automatic electromagnetic braking system automatically slows, stops and holds the wheel in the correct position, eliminating the need for a foot-activated brake with wheel-holding pedals. This gives technicians the freedom to move without restraint when placing weights on both the inner and outer faces of the wheel. At the precise instant the brake is engaged, dual Laser-Spot™ lasers come to life and pinpoint exactly where either the stick-on or clip-on wheel weights should be fastened. A bright, wide LED beam is activated at the precise moment the balancer brake engages. The LED assist light, dual lasers and auto brake will all remain active until the stop button is manually pressed.

Multi-directional Quartz Piezoelectric Load Sensors
Dual-component piezoelectric quartz load sensors and digital rotation encoder measure longitudinal, transversal and shear effects for multi-directional force unbalance detection. The piezoelectric force sensors are the most sensiotive sensors we have ever made, offering superior stability and fatigue resistance for unlimited service life with your wheel balancer. The high-rigidity quartz crystal sensors offer high frequency detection in all three measured directions.

Quick & Precise Setup
A self-centering, non-marring Quick-Nut and bell adapter set ensures proper centering of the wheel and eliminates counterproductive setup errors. You'll mount wheels faster and easier, minimizing the risk of customer come-backs or costly wheel damage.

Mounting Cone Package
Included with every machine are both standard and heavy-duty mounting cones, as well as a full accessory tooling package. The LS43B laser balancer's tooling package includes our standard car and light truck cones, as well as a heavy-duty truck cone. This well-equipped package includes three automotive and light truck cones: 1.75” - 2.75”, 2.75” - 3.50” and 3.50” - 4.25”, as well as one truck cone 4.50” - 5.00”.

Tape Weight Feeder
An open-top side shelf accommodates a large roll of Ranger Quick-Peel™ adhesive tape weights. Included with your purchase is a complimentary wheel weight starter kit that fits directly into a built-in tape weight feeder. Additional weights are available for purchase at any time.

Automatic Weight Optimization
The LS43B laser wheel balancer features a computer interface with weight optimization technology that automatically calculates the minimum amount of weight needed to achieve optimal balance. Minimizing weight usage at your place of business is sure to add up to real savings over time and ultimately increase your bottom line.

User-friendly Operation
An anti-reflective, touch-pad display panel features tire and wheel assembly graphics that help simplify the speedy entry of wheel data. The display panel efficiently guides techs through each balancing procedure. Operator function keys are labeled with simple, easy-to-read icons to help operators identify and command all balancing functions.

LED Rolling Wheel Weight Displays
Bright LED weight placement indicators show weight positions as the wheel is gently rolled to exact top-dead-center. Tiered weight placement indicators help identify out-of-sight weight placements, such as split-weight or hidden “behind-the-spoke” techniques. Indicators assist operators with clip-on and tape weight placement at precise locations for zero-on balancing.
