Explore this tire machine if your shop life demands a tool that will be able to handle round-the-clock use and abuse.
Adjustable RimGuard™ wheel clamps
Ranger’s trademark wheel clamps are capable of extending 10”-34”, and they feature internal and external multi-teeth jaws.
Advanced clamp positioning
The R80EX’s variable clamp positioning makes wheel service quick and easy, you’ll be able to perfectly control wheels when you’re clamping them.
Easier bead lubrication
A geometric tabletop provides for easier bead lubrication and allows technicians to make visual inspections of the lower bead mounting and inflation procedures.
Power-controlled bead loosener
With this high-quality tire changer, you’ll be able to enjoy an intuitive design which eliminates traditional foot-pedal controls that more often than not have technicians working in unbalanced stances when loosening beads. A bilateral, power-controlled bead loosener boasts single-lever control on the shovel handle. The R80EX has been designed to deliver the ultimate in comfort, efficiency, safety, and ease of use, and with this power-controlled bead loosener you’ll have additional power, speed, and control, especially when servicing large or wide assemblies.
Adjustable bead loosener shovel blade
The R80EX is equipped with a multi-axis and adjustable bead loosener shovel blade which helps to accommodate a larger variety of tire and wheel combinations.
100% stainless-steel bead loosener cylinder
You won’t have to worry about moisture contamination from corrosion due to air condensation with this tire changer. The stainless-steel cylinder is completely resistant to chemical erosion, rust, as well as 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 R80EX sports a rugged box frame construction which will increase its overall strength, and it will ensure 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 will deliver an increased service life and performance at the highest level possible, no matter the working condition. Valve plungers are built with muffled extrication ports which 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.
The R80EX has a balanced flywheel which ensures that the machine will run smoothly while reducing vibration. It’ll also help minimize associated stress on other machinery components.
Simple foot-pedal control
Ranger has crafted their foot-pedal control using forged steel, rather than cast iron, because this high-grade material will be able to stand up to everyday use and abuse in high-volume tire centers. Snap action spring return means that you’ll have precise and controlled operation. The foot-pedal control valves feature multi-link rod connections for non-binding plunger movement and precise bilateral control.
Sealed electrical components
All critical components, such as main-lead electrical terminals, auxiliary switches, and motor enclosures, are all sealed for air-tight, dust-free, and contamination-proof protection of terminal leads.
Ranger Next Generation™ tire changers are equipped with high-pressure polyurethane pneumatic tubing with mirror-smooth seamless bore for exceptional flow rates, high abrasion resistance, high burst tolerance, as well as maximum kink resistance.
Advanced drive belt
The R80EX features a specially engineered drive belt which features convex sidewalls which can distribute wear evenly while providing proper belt support for improved service life. Both flex-bonded cords and flex-weave covers can resist the effects of oil, heat, ozone, weather, and aging.
A newly designed, maintenance-free gearbox features a large oil and grease reservoir that assists in providing efficient heat dissipation and improved lubrication for longer service life. You will get leak-free venting because of the internal baffles and the constant seating stress flange gasket. 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.
Updated electric motor
Improved electric motor features the best of proven technologies. It includes rugged copper rotor construction, high-quality bearings, thermal-cool epoxy insulation and durable rolled steel frames.
Left and right-side tower drop-center design
The powerful left-side assist tower boasts a multi-profile traveling drop-center tool which holds stubborn sidewalls in the drop-center, a single lower bead lifting disc, and a pneumatic non-marring wheel positioning and restraint device which makes external mounting procedures as simple as possible, it also helps restrain wheels during inflation. A tire iron slot is built into the bead-lifting discs which will give operators additional leverage for difficult tire handling. The upfront controls paired with a sensible ergonomic design will 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 comes equipped with dual power-drop top bead assist rollers which will be able to help hold top beads in place during removal and installation of tough sidewall tires. An additional bead-lifting disc and sidewall roller will enhance the tire handling capability even further.
Tilt-back tower design
The tilt-back tower delivers greater clearance and access for tire removal and inflation. Pneumatic-lock tool head stays positioned on the tower return for instant set up for like sets of tires and wheels.
Stainless steel and aluminum pneumatic cylinders
Ranger has designed their cylinders to reduce machine vibration while providing low friction and long-life operation. The end-of-stroke cushions come standard, and they help provide support at the end of each full stroke to reduce wear on seals, wear band, and piston rod. This’ll provide outstanding service life thanks to permanent lubrication.
Multi-function mount and demount head
The hardened alloy steel mount and demount head feature a unique equi-dimensional shape which allows you to perform all changing functions with the tool head in the same position. The micro-smooth tool head surface glides tire beads effortlessly during mounting and demounting procedures which will ensure that costly tire damage is minimized.
Standard wheel service accessories
There are a wide range of wheel service accessories designed to keep your shop running as smoothly as possible. Some items are necessary such as a soap bucket and brush, a plastic wheel protector kit with turntable jaw covers, bead-breaker blade boots, and specialized mount/demount head covers. Having those just makes your life in the shop infinitely easier. It also wouldn’t hurt to have a hardened steel tire iron and bead lever tool just in case you encounter the most stubborn tire change job out there.
Spring-assisted tool shaft
A rigid, 45mm spring-assisted hexagonal vertical tool shaft, combined with a hardened-steel horizontal outrigger support arm will have you maintaining a perfect position of the mount-demount tool head during all tire service procedures which will reduce the chance of expensive wheels getting damaged.
Guide bearings for all moving parts
All moving parts feature maintenance-free linear guide bearings which allow for easy adjustment of both vertical and horizontal wheel settings. Its non-flex horizontal arm also features a hardened lower roller guide for smooth and controlled in-and-out movement.
