Hi Maree, just a quick note about the tyre machine and the wheel balancer that I purchased recently.
The tyre changer has seen plenty of use. I have 5 motorbikes (dirt bikes, dual sport and sports bike) 2 Camaro’s and the families cars to look after. I change tyres depending on the type of driving, riding or events I am going in. The machine handles the job no problem at all and I would recommend to anyone this type of machine.
The balancer has also seen a reasonable amount of use balancing most of the wheels that I change. Having never used a balancer before I was a bit worried as to how I would go. Then I realised that I had to calibrate it as well !! Not one for reading operators manuals I had a crack at it. The manual is easy to follow and understand and I was able to set it up,calibrate and ultimately use the machine for balancing whatever wheel type I put on it..
Overall both great entry level machines. I might add that my mates have also been getting plenty of use out of the machines.
