The new features are noted as product upgrades to the popular W-894 and W898 series tire changers. Derek Weaver states, “The bead breakers on these changers have always been good, reliable performers. Now we have a more powerful stainless cylinder that will give even longer life and cycle twice as fast as most machines on the market. The mounting duckhead is also improved with a larger, stronger Hex Bar to prevent flexing on todays tough low profile tires. Another great addition is the new X shape turntable to provide a better view under the wheel when clamping from the outside of the rim. We are proud to add these new feature upgrades to the Weaver Tire Changer brand and support it with our outstanding customer service.”
