Bead Press System
For Hunter TCX500, TCX525 & TCX550 Tire Changers

The Bead Press System speeds and eases clamping, lubricating, demounting and mounting the toughest wheel and tire combinations up to 28 inches in diameter. Patented design uniquely locates the pressing forces over the center of the wheel and tire to ensure maximum service strength and rigidity.

The rotating arm with single bead press roller can quickly be used for mounting and demounting stiff sidewall tires. The roller may be locked to hold the tire sidewall, which maintains traction during the mounting sequence.
