This innovative technology also optimizes the torque applied to the wheel and automatically sets the maximum rotation speed of the wheel. Each model also offers variable speeds from seven to 18 RPMs for maximum productivity. Other key features include:


Tilt-Back Configuration– rigid design significantly reduces the chances of harm to rim or tire bead while offering maximum clearance for installing tire on turntable.
