Hunter Unveils HD Elite Heavy-Duty Wheel Balancer

Hunter Unveils HD Elite Heavy-Duty Wheel Balancer

The HD Elite has class-leading capacity handling 52-in. diameter and 500lb assemblies.

Hunter introduces the HD Elite: a heavy-duty wheel balancer that combines cutting-edge features of Hunter’s Road Force Elite and ForceMatch HD balancers to help eliminate wheel-related vibration and increase truck tire life.

The HD Elite features fast cycle times with a new laser vision system for touchless wheel measurement, automatic dimension and runout measurement and eCal Auto-Calibration, which eliminates the need for an operator to manually calibrate.

“The laser vision system is a game-changer for HD assemblies, noted Greg Meyer, Hunter’s product manager of wheel balancers and brake lathes. “It allows the machine to balance and measure assembly runout faster than other HD balancers. This allows us to maximize tire life and minimize vibrations without a time penalty.”

The HD Elite has class-leading capacity handling 52-in. diameter and 500lb assemblies. The heavy-duty balancer is equipped with an intuitive, touchscreen interface that simplifies operation for technicians at all experience levels. Additionally, an optional load roller measures runout to correct the leading cause of vibration in heavy-duty tire assemblies.

Additional features include Automatic CenteringCheck and a new and improved wheel lift with a damper to smooth operation.
