Note - Some offset and dually wheels will require our truck cone kit, which includes the back cone spacer cup and the large cone for center holes up to 6 7/8".  The W-937 and W-957 Wheel Balancers with 36 mm. shafts use the W-TKD 36mm Truck Cone Kit, and the W-937-40 / W-957-40 / W-977 with 40 mm. shafts use the W-TKD 40mm.

Derek Weaver Company announces the newest addition to our Commercial Grade wheel service line, the Weaver® W-977 Computer Wheel Balancer.  The Weaver® W-977 features a Semi-Automatic Data Entry Gauge for both the Distance and Wheel Diameter.  Simply extend the distance gauge to contact the inside of the mounted wheel assembly and the W-977 automatically enters the Distance and Diameter parameters Only leaving the wheel width to be entered manually.

Key Features Include: 

  • Distance Gauge weight holder grips tape on wheel weights and guides the correct placement on the wheel.
  • Special ALU modes for hidden weight placement 
  • Heavy Duty capacity 40mm shaft allows balancing up to 165-lb. tire/wheel assembly.
  • Self Diagnosing and self calibrating allow easy operator control.  Plug and Play style components make for easy operator replacements without the need for expensive service calls and labor repairs.
  • Large Display folds to adjust to the operators preferred viewing angle.
  • Foot Pedal Spindle Lock to assist in accurate weight placements. 
  • DSP Digital Signal Processor and Direct Axis Drive System are accurate within hundredths of an ounce.
  • Highly Accurate and Reliable.


The W-977 is a Full Featured design that will withstand the rigors of a volume tire shop at an affordable price.  Components used in the W-977 are state of the art designs typically reserved for more expensive wheel balancers.  Incorporated into the design is an easy to use automatic data entry sequence, Static and Dynamic balancing along with multiple balance modes for a variety of weight placements.  It also has up to 4 different User Modes and a Foot Pedal Spindle Lock for accurate weight placements.  The user calibration is a quick and easy two step process that utilizes fast software updating using a real test weight sequence.   

Check out these Professional grade spec's.  The Weaver® W-977 will handle rims up to 26" in diameter as well as wheel widths up to 20" and tire/wheel assemblies weighing up to 165-lbs.   Bigger truck tires are no problem with this machine.  The standard cone set (4 cones) have been Custom Tapered to accommodate a range from 1.75" - 6.125" center holes.  Now with FREE Light Truck Cone Kit, $250.00 Value!  Beware! - Some brand X balancers offer 4 old style cones that only go up to 5" center holes in the hope they can sell you a 5th cone set to do trucks for another $270.00 - Buyer Beware!  Our cones do more,...That's Cool!   

Also Beware of some brand X balancers that claim to be "Professional Grade or Commercial Grade" yet only use a 1/4 H.P. motor compared to our True Rated 1/3 H.P. motors.  The Weaver W-937, W-957 and W-977 balancers are true Commercial Grade machines.

    Glad I bought it!

    Posted by Sal on 11th Oct 2013

    Hello,
    I bought this machine for my home shop. With my hobbies I tend to go through tires so this was a good idea for me. I've balanced several sets of tires with this machine and here's my experience so far.

    The good... This machine is easy to use. The included CD did not work, but using the videos here on the website I got the machine up and running fairly easily. It's quiet, smooth, cycles quickly and as far as I can tell does a good job. I've balanced some steel trailer wheels/tires and aluminum truck wheels/tires. The truck did have some vibration issues before, but once I balanced the tires it was smooth as could be. The different modes are very handy and easy to use. I haven't messed with the split spoke method yet though. I just haven't needed to.

    Now the bad. The calibration weight is cheaply made and already came apart. The weight puller works OK, but an upgrade there may be a good idea. The calipers are kind of chintzy too. The cones are well made though. The quick nut is also well made and works great. It has two attachments. A small and large adapter for different wheel faces. The large one works great. It has a bid rubber cap that protects the wheels. The smaller one is plastic. It will mar a painted wheel while being tightened down. Some blue tape helps that issue.

    I bought this machine because I really wanted the foot brake which also works well. My hands don't work as well as they used to and it makes things easier for me. Aside from a few quirks this is a good solid machine. I'm glad I bought it and would do so again.

Derek Weaver Company is proud to offer our high quality products with free shipping or warehouse pickup. Here's how it works...

PRODUCTS MARKED FREE SHIPPING

All Products on our website are offered with "Free Shipping". This means the freight charges are included in the price. Most of our products weighing less than 800-lbs. are offered with “Absolute Free Shipping” which means there are no extra fees. In this case you will notice the phrase “FREE SHIPPING! Includes Free Residential and Free Lift Gate Service!”, in the description of the products page. Absolute Free Shipping also means there are no additional fees for Liftgate Service or Residential Delivery. The only additional fee that you may incur would be if the address were changed during shipment which would incur a reconsignment fee by the freight carrier that we would only pass on if it were not our mistake.

For equipment over 800-lbs (most 2 & 4-Post lifts) there are some limitations for Free Shipping depending on weight and delivery location. In this case you will notice the phrase “Free Shipping To Over 85% of the USA - See Where It's Free” in the description of the products page. Most of the USA will require no additional fee. This applies to over 85% of the continental USA (lower 48 states). Free shipping does not apply to Alaska or Hawaii. Some parts of the country are affected by higher freight rates due to the combination of weight and delivery location which will require a small additional charge to cover the higher rate charged by the freight carriers. Our shopping cart will not calculate the difference (added fee), so we will contact you if this is the case. Rather than advertise the higher rates across the board we choose to show the lowest possible cost to most of the country. Like “Absolute Free Shipping” there will be no extra charge for lift gate or residential delivery. The following areas may have additional freight: North Western US, North Eastern US, Long Island, Western Colorado, the Dakotas, some parts of Florida & California and any area deemed a remote location by the freight company. Prior to ordering give us a call at 817-560-9510 or email and we can provide accurate information regarding Free Shipping or any additional charges.

FREIGHT CONSIDERATIONS

Shipping and delivery time given during the freight quote process is an estimated time of delivery given by the carrier. Choosing Liftgate Delivery may extend delivery times due to limited liftgate equipment at the delivering terminal. Meeting the delivery schedule is subject to the day the freight is shipped and the carrier’s ability to meet their schedule. Derek Weaver Co., Inc. does not guarantee that a carrier can meet their projected delivery time but we will provide you with the proper tracking information by email so you can follow the tracking time and arrange for special delivery needs with the carrier as needed. Any additional fees incurred as a result of consignee being unable to meet scheduled delivery time or cause for redelivery or reconsignment to a different location will be at consignee’s expense.

RESIDENTIAL DELIVERY:

Choosing Residential may extend the estimated delivery time due limited liftgate trucks at the delivering terminal, additional communication and handling by the freight company. Please keep this in mind when choosing residential delivery.

UNLOADING THE FREIGHT TRUCK:

Make sure you can unload the freight. A forklift or lifting equipment is required for items over 800-lbs. The trucking company is only responsible for delivery to your loading dock if delivered to a business address or curbside if a residential lift gate delivery. Lift gate service is available for some equipment and can assist in unloading 2 and 4-post lifts however you will still need a forklift. Liftgate capacity is typically 1000-lbs and cannot unload a 2 or 4-post lift on its own.

PICKUP AT YOUR LOCAL FREIGHT TERMINAL:

If you are unable to unload a truck, we have the option of letting you pick the freight up at the closest terminal to your location. When picking up at a terminal, the freight company will load your truck or trailer for you which is included in the freight cost. Call our office (1-817-560-9510) to determine the location of the closest terminal. If you require terminal pickup please place a note in the comment box requesting terminal pickup and we will contact you with the terminal location. Covered trailers or trailers with ramps are not acceptable as they prevent the forklift from getting the load into the trailer. They will not drive onto a ramped trailer. Please remove the ramps prior to picking up if possible.

All shipments must be inspected immediately upon receipt

IF AN ITEM HAS FREIGHT DAMAGE OR SCRATCHES

1) ACCEPTING AN ITEM WITH FREIGHT DAMAGE OR SCRATCHES.

Choose this option if you have minor dings and scratches or a part that needs replaced to make the unit satisfactory. Make note of the damage before you sign the freight bill. You will be responsible for filing the freight damage claim with the carrier. Derek Weaver Co, Inc. will provide any replacement parts or touch up paint needed should you choose this option and the carrier should provide for reimbursement. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call our customer service department @ 1-817-560-9510

2) REFUSE THE DAMAGED ITEM.

Choose this option if the carrier has severely damaged the freight beyond your judgment of a simple repair. Derek Weaver Co, Inc. will file all freight claims. Get a copy of the freight bill from the truck driver and email it with a brief explanation of the situation to us. A replacement will be shipped as soon as we verify possession of the freight with the carrier.

SCHEDULING A WAREHOUSE PICKUP

If you would like to pick-up the item at one or our warehouses, please call ahead to make sure the item is in stock and schedule your pick-up. Picking up at our warehouse will save you in freight fees but will require sales tax to be collected. If you do not see a pickup price on our website for the product you are interested in you may call our office for more information.

In Texas we load Monday – Friday by appointment only.

In North Carolina we load Monday – Friday by appointment only.

All Two Post and Four Post Lifts require trailer for pickup. Be prepared for pick-up by understanding the item’s weight and dimensions and using the proper truck and/or trailer for hauling. We cannot load open or enclosed trailers with ramp gates. Our warehouse will load the item onto your vehicle and/or trailer but is not responsible for properly securing the load on your vehicle and you will need to make sure you have the proper straps and equipment for hauling. All items for local pick-up are charged state sales tax at the appropriate local rate. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call our customer service department @ 1-817-560-9510
