LiftWise Introduces Hanging Tire Handler

Written by Kate Wade on . Posted in .

The new HTH-1400 Hanging Tire Handler from LiftWise is a high-capacity machine for handling, controlling and maneuvering tires for reliable installation, removal or maintenance. With a capacity to lift tires weighing up to 1,400 pounds, the HTH-1400 is fully adjustable to handle tires between 30 and 53 inches in diameter, and up to 19 inches in width.

The unique design of the HTH-1400 allows a tire to be easily and precisely positioned by a single operator, maximizing productivity and efficiency for any application. The unit securely clamps to the tire and can rotate it 90 degrees from a horizontal position to a vertical position and back again, allowing tire assemblies to be delivered to the machine flat on a pallet. Also, a 25-degree bidirectional tire rotation ability makes for easier alignment of studs with the tire bolt pattern. Adjustable pins further ensure correct tire orientation.

Battery-powered and operated by a tethered controller, the unit is factory set for deliberate, controlled operational speeds. Given the unique equipment design, installation and removal times are expedited compared with alternative methods, but movement speeds can be adjusted to meet more demanding application requirements.
