65 | February 2016 Hunter's new Auto34S tire changer The new Auto34S tire changer from Hunter Engineering features a space- saving, functional design and an air powered, push-but- ton control that operates all diameter functions from a single point. The ergonomic Auto34S has a memory button that saves the tire diameter setting and returns the mount head to the same spot until reset. Hunter says an improved press head allows for better grip on all tires, especially extreme low profle tires. An integrated wheel lift eases the service of large assemblies, reducing operator fatigue and risk of damage. HUNTER ENGINEERING CO.
