As a veteran of the tire industry you are aware that tires have become lower profile, stiffer, and more difficult to mount. Making sure the bead is in the drop center is critical to ensure installation is damage free for the tire and wheel.
One option to get the job done is to have a second technician assist by holding the tire in the drop center for proper installation. This is not a very profitable or productive solution, moreover it is not the safest choice.
With John Bean's pneumatic bead assist, it holds the bead in the drop center and automatically follows the rotation of the wheel to position the bead, making the tire changer your assistant.
