Ranger’s Updated and Incredibly Advanced Tire Changer

Looking to save time? An R80EX tyre changer is a must-have machine for busy shops that don’t have a minute to waste. A multi-profile traveling drop-center tool, top bead assist rollers, dual lower bead lifting discs and a nylon non-marring wheel restraint device are important tyre shop tools designed to dramatically reduce effort, increase safety and help minimize operator fatigue. A large 863 mm capacity turntable with adjustable hardened-steel RimGuard™ wheel clamps helps broaden the service range, so you can handle virtually any wheel that rolls in your shop. Explore this tyre machine if your shop life demands a tool that will generously handle round-the-clock use and abuse.

Adjustable RimGuard™ wheel clamps

Ranger’s trademark wheel clamps extend 254 mm – 863 mm and feature internal and external multi-teeth jaws.

Ranger R80EX adjustable Rim Guard wheel clamps

Advanced clamp positioning

Variable clamp positioning makes wheel service simple, perfectly controlling the wheels when clamping them. Operators have the freedom to freely and precisely position clamps within the entyre clamping range. There’s no need for the clamps to cycle the full range.

Easier bead lubrication

A geometric tabletop provides for easier bead lubrication and allows operators to make visual inspections of the lower bead during mounting and inflation procedures.

Power-controlled bead loosener

A bilateral, power-controlled bead loosener features single-lever control on the shovel handle. This ergonomic design eliminates traditional foot-pedal controls that often force technicians into unbalanced working stances when loosening beads. Designed for maximum comfort, efficiency, safety and ease of use, this valuable feature helps deliver additional power, speed and control, especially when servicing large or wide assemblies.

Adjustable bead loosener shovel blade

A multi-axis and adjustable bead loosener shovel blade helps accommodate a larger variety of tyre and wheel combinations.

100% stainless-steel bead loosener cylinder

No more worrying about moisture contamination from corrosion due to air source condensation. The stainless-steel cylinder is completely resistant to chemical erosion, rust and other damaging effects of weather over time.

Dual-flange bead loosener

The oversized axle minimizes blade flex and improves durability.

Enhanced bead-breaker arm

The tyre changer’s arm features a rugged box frame construction that increases strength and ensures years of dependable service and performance.

Pneumatic control valves

Industrial-grade, 45-micron pneumatic control valves feature die cast and machined bodies constructed from zinc and aluminum. High-performance polyurethane seals and self-lubricating, Teflon® piston guides provide increased service life and performance at the highest level possible within almost every imaginable working condition. Valve plungers feature muffled extrication ports that direct any dirt or contamination accumulated on the outside perimeter of the spool to be automatically blown away each time the valve goes into the release position. 

R80EX features durable pneumatic internal control valves

Balanced flywheel

A balanced flywheel helps the machine run smoothly, reduces vibration and helps minimize associated stress on other machinery components.

Simple foot-pedal control

Durable forged steel (instead of cast iron) foot pedal levers will stand up to everyday use and abuse in high-volume tyre centers. Snap action spring return means precise and controlled operation. Foot-pedal control valves feature multi-link rod connections for non-binding plunger movement and precise bilateral control.

R80EX has simple foot pedal controls

Sealed electrical components

All main-lead electrical terminals, auxiliary switches and motor enclosures are sealed for air-tight, dust-free and contamination-proof protection of terminal leads.

Pneumatic tubing

Ranger Next Generation™ tyre changers feature high-pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing with mirror-smooth seamless bore for exceptional flow rates, high abrasion resistance, high burst tolerance and maximum kink resistance.

Advanced drive belt system

Specially engineered drive belt features convex sidewalls to distribute wear evenly while providing proper belt support for improved service life. Both flex-bonded cords and flex-weave covers resist the effects of oil, heat, ozone, weather and aging.

Maintenance-free gearbox

A maintenance-free gearbox features a large oil and grease reservoir that helps provide efficient heat dissipation and improved lubrication for longer service life. Internal baffles and a constant-seating stress flange gasket ensure positive, leak-free venting. The rugged gearbox enclosure is precision-milled for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases and features precision helical gears that operate much more smoothly and quietly than typical spur gear transmissions. The rugged housing provides maximum strength for extreme durability under hard working conditions and greater precision under load during worm and gear alignment. High-strength, oversized worms and worm gears are straddle-mounted between heavy-duty tapered roller bearings, providing rugged dependability.

Updated electric motor

Improved electric motor features the best of proven technologies, including rugged copper rotor construction, high-quality bearings, thermal-cool epoxy insulation and durable rolled steel frames.

The R80EX has a new and improved 3 HP motor

Left and right-side tower drop-center design

Powerful left-side assist tower features a multi-profile traveling drop-center tool that holds stubborn sidewalls in the drop-center, a single lower bead lifting disc and a pneumatic non-marring wheel positioning and restraint device that simplifies external mounting procedures and helps restrain wheels during inflation. A tyre iron slot built into the bead-lifting discs gives operators additional leverage for difficult tyre handling. Upfront controls and a sensible ergonomic design provide ease of use and more efficient operation. Heavy-duty, tri-flange, cast-iron assist tower carriage features linear way bearings for years of maintenance-free operation.

Additionally, a right-side assist tower features dual power-drop top bead assist rollers that help hold top beads in place during removal and installation of tough sidewall tyres. An additional bead-lifting disc and sidewall roller provide even more tyre handling capability.

Tilt-back tower design

The tilt-back tower provides greater clearance and access for tyre removal and inflation. Pneumatic-lock tool head stays positioned on the tower return for instant set up for like sets of tyres and wheels.

Stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders

Ranger’s cylinders are designed to reduce machine vibration and provide low friction and long life operation. Internal end-of-stroke cushions come standard and help provide support at the end of each full stroke to reduce wear on seals, wear band and piston rod. Permanent lubrication design provides outstanding service life.

Multi-function mount and demount head

The hardened alloy steel mount and demount head has a unique equi-dimensional shape that allows you to perform all changing functions with the tool head in the same position. The micro-smooth tool head surface glides tyre beads effortlessly during mounting and demounting procedures to ensure costly tyre damage is minimized.

Standard wheel service accessories

Important wheel service accessories come standard, like a large soap bucket with brush and a multi-piece plastic wheel protector kit that includes turntable jaw covers, bead-breaker blade boots and specialized mount / demount head covers to help protect delicate wheels. We throw in a hardened steel tyre iron and bead lever tool to assist during all tyre mounting and demounting operations.

Spring-assisted tool shaft

A rigid, 45 mm spring-assisted hexagonal vertical tool shaft, combined with a hardened-steel horizontal outrigger support arm, maintains perfect position of the mount-demount tool head during all tyre service procedures to reduce the chance of expensive wheels getting damaged.

Guide bearings for all moving parts

All moving parts feature maintenance-free linear guide bearings for easy adjustment of both vertical and horizontal wheel settings. The non-flex horizontal arm also features a hardened lower roller guide for smooth and controlled in-and-out movement. Integrated rubber bump-stops ensure smooth return during tilt-back operations to help reduce shock loading and minimize wear on tower guides and moving parts.

Foot-controlled tyre inflator

A simple-to-use tyre inflator features foot-pedal operation and inflation hose with a sure-grip clip-on valve chuck, enabling hands-free operation. Integrated air pressure dump valve enables you to lower tyre pressure with a simple push of a button.

TurboBlast™ bead seating

Ranger tyre changers feature the renowned TurboBlast™ bead seating system that blasts a powerful air burst between the tyre and rim to help seat stubborn beads fast. A durable, non-marring nylon discharge barrel features a contoured tab that locks securely on the edge of the rim for better control during air discharge between the tyre and wheel. A welded-steel, eight-gallon surge tank is larger than competitive models for all the inflation power you need, when you need it.
