New Tyre Changer and Tyre Service Unit From Corghi

(Douglasdale, South Africa/S.A. Treads) Allegedly ‘new to the market,’ Corghi recently introduced its new innovation in the form of an integrated Truck Tyre Changer and Tyre Service Unit.

Developed in collaboration with a major European tyre manufacturer in an attempt to streamline its after-sales and road assistance capacity on European roads, the new Corghi HD600Tilt only uses one operator and greatly reduces the time it normally takes to change a tyre.

The CorghiHD600Tilt consists of a truck tyre changer, and a 17hp silenced diesel engine that powers a compressor and a generator. It is also fitted with hose reels.

How It Works
Take an electro-hydraulic tyre changer capable of handling truck, bus and tractor tyres up to 26” and power it with a soundproofed power generator to make it completely independent. Now install it in an absolutely standard van with load capacity of up to 3.5tonnes – which is easily achieved given its reduced weight, size and design which makes it suitable for handling by a lift truck.

To finish, imagine working on the roadside or at the client’s premises just as if you were back at the workshop, with the same efficiency and quality results. Enter the new HD600Tilt.

Corghi has managed to create a one-of-a-kind tool, designed to meet the needs of mobile service companies, buses and shipping fleets. All mounting and demounting operations are conducted in the usual way. Where the novelty of the new unit comes into play, is in its very compact size and specially designed tool arm which can swing out or fold back in seconds from the sliding door at the side of the van, thereby enabling you to change damaged tyres quickly, simply and fully automatically.

Moreover, in the upright position, the HD600Tilt is ideal for transporting on a standard van, but in operation, it has all the outstanding features of your workshop tyre changer.

And the unit’s reduced weight and size allow plenty of space inside the van for tools and tyres with no risk of violating the loading limit.

The tyre changer – designed to work on all vans with a truck bed height of between 400-667mm – can service tyres from 13” to 26”, including all types of low profile tyres, super singles and the latest generation run-flats.
