Rotary has introduced the R544 Pro Truck 2D wheel balancer, which the company says enables technicians to quickly and accurately balance a wide array of commercial truck, bus and passenger vehicle wheels.
Rotary says the R544 features a microprocessor with self-calibration and self-diagnostic features. It also has specific balancing programs for static, dynamic and light alloy/aluminum wheels. One single spin with low rotation speed provides all the necessary values. The R544 can raise up to 441 lb. with the integrated wheel lift and features a pneumatic wheel lock. An electro-pneumatic brake keeps the wheel in the unbalance position. The digital caliper with optical scanner provides 2D automatic data input of distance and diameter up to 26 in.
“If you’re looking for a versatile truck wheel balancer that will get you the results you need quickly, the R544 Pro Truck 2D is the model for you,” says Rob Dabrowski, vice president of wheel service equipment for Rotary parent company Vehicle Service Group (VSG). “The self-calibration and self-diagnostic features allow you to handle anything that rolls into your shop.”
