RANGER Super Duty Truck Wheel Balancer RB24T
It handles tires up to 50 inches in diameter and 20 inches wide and rim sizes up to 30 inches in diameter. Although best suited for bus, truck and OTR wheels, it’s capable and fully equipped to accommodate automobiles and light truck wheels as well. Featuring Ranger’s proprietary Drive‐Check™ technology, it’s a powerful, vibration detection balancing solution that simulates road and driving speed conditions and measures computer‐generated imbalance of the tire and wheel assembly automatically. It then recommends the most cost effective weight optimization correction as needed which minimizes weight usage and maximizes productivity. An integrated wheel lift easily lifts the heaviest wheel assemblies for effortless mounting on the balancer.
Automatic Weight Optimization
The RB24T truck wheel balancer automatically calculates the minimum amount of weight needed to achieve an optimal balance for the tire and wheel configuration so you use less weight which adds up to real savings and increases your bottom line.
Proprietary Drive‐Check technology dramatically improves rotational measuring typically used to diagnose and repair ride disturbance complications. The highly precise RB24T performs a computer generated driving simulation then checks and measures the tire/wheel assembly for imbalance and possible run out of the rim and tire. With the RB24T, virtually all possible complaints due to rotational imbalance are eliminated before the wheel is mounted on the vehicle.
User Friendly Operation
A touch‐pad display panel simplifies speed entry of wheel data and helps guide technicians through balancing procedures. Operator function keys are labeled with simple, easy‐toread icons helping operators identify and command all balancing functions. Bright LED weight placement indicators show weight positions as the wheel is gently rolled to exact top‐dead‐center. A pneumatic braking system automatically engages and secures the wheel firmly in place as soon as the weight placement indicators are lighted and positioned at top‐dead‐center.
