New monty 8100S Tire Changer with Exclusive smartSpeed Technology

Conway, AR - Feb. 17, 2016 -- The new Hofmann® monty® 8100S tire changer may be a traditional center post changer, but it provides users with unique, innovative features not found on other tire changers.

“The new Hofmann monty 8100S is a conventional tire changer with pioneering technology that makes it distinctive in the marketplace,” said Brian Gates, product manager for Hofmann. “It is simple to use, requires minimal training and is sure to increase productivity as shops can perform more tire changes more easily day in and day out.”

The Hofmann monty 8100S features an exclusive self-adjustable speed system, smartSpeed, that maximizes rotation speed in line with required torque, giving users the highest possible speed for maximum efficiency without damaging the wheel. Another unique attribute is the finger trigger bead breaker that combines the performance of a traditional on-side bead breaker with effortless operation.

The monty 8100S has a conventional mounting head and tire lever, as well as mount and de-mount assist arms, to avoid wheel and tire damage making for safer use. The wheel lift has an enhanced ergonomic design to assist technicians in positioning heavy tires on the machine and the tire lifting tool supports the demounting process.
