The Atlas manufacturer has sold automotive wheel service equipment for over 40 years. His company has distributed and installed hundreds of wheel service machines manufactured by HUNTER ®, CORGHI ®, COATS ®, CEMB ®, HOFMANN ®, AMMCO®, ACCU-TURN ®, RANGER ®, SNAP-ON ® and BISHMAN ®.Atlas believes that the wheel service products made by Atlas are designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards as the “BIG NAME BRANDS”The salesmen for the "BIG NAME BRANDS" try to intimidate many prospective wheel service equipment customers into believing that products from ASIA are inferior. Most of the “BIG BRAND NAMES” have the majority of their parts made in ASIA.Get the facts about Atlas wheel service products before you spend two to three times more than you need to on "BIG NAME BRANDS"!Description:The Atlas TC 221 wheel clamp tire changer is the perfect changer for a small commercial garage or an ATV/motorcycle dealer.The Atlas wheel clamp tire changers are designed to change the tires on both high priced alloy wheels and steel wheels without damaging the rim or the tire. The powerful bead breaker located on the side of the tire changer is designed to break even the most stubborn and rusted beads without damage to the rim. The turntable jaws (which can be covered with the standard protective plastic inserts) hold the rim securely without damaging the surface of the rim. These jaws can be moved to three different positions along the slides of the turntable to either increase or decrease the clamping range of the Atlas 221.The Atlas TC 221 comes standard with an inflator hose and gauge.Quality:The Atlas TC 221 is manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified plant that produces tire changing equipment for export to many countries. The Atlas name means high quality and great prices. Atlas continues to offer the best products at the best prices.When shopping for tire changers and wheel balancers; ask the competition to show you pictures and descriptions of what is “under the hood” of their machines. Tire Changers and wheel balancers may appear to be the same on the outside, but as in most instances: It’s what’s inside that counts!Over 5,000 of the Atlas tire changers in the past several years. The Atlas name has always been a trusted name in the automotive service Industry and you can depend on the Atlas brand for many years to come.Does NOT Have A Bead Blaster:The Atlas TC 221 does not come with the powerful bead blast feature found on other Atlas tire changers. This bead blaster is not normally needed for motorcycle tires. Many of our customers have a separate bead blaster device to seat the stubborn beads found on ATV tires and stiff sidewall car tires. The bead blaster holes on most tire changers are located on the jaw slides. (The Atlas 221 does NOT have a bead blaster system) When the optional slide on adapter sets are positioned over turntable jaws, bead blaster air holes are covered and will not work properly. If a tire changer has a factory installed bead blaster system, the slide on adapters prevent the factory installed bead blaster system from operating effectively. Greg Smith Equipment Sales offers the Atlas HBBC (add-on) quick inflate system to help seat the beads on most stubborn tires. The HBBC can be installed in less than one hour. The Atlas HBBC delivers a powerful blast of compressed air into the cavity of the tire (from the top). Performance of the HBBC is not affected by the slide on adapters.Shipping:The Atlas TC 221 is delivered by a commercial carrier. The customer is responsible for the unloading of the tire changer from the semi truck. Many times the semi truck can be equipped with a power tailgate (at no extra charge) to help lower the tire changer crate to the ground.Parts:There is some assembly required on the Atlas TC 221 wheel clamp tire changer. Greg Smith Equipment stocks a complete line of parts for all the Atlas wheel clamp tire changers. Warranty:Atlas offers a one year limited warranty for the Atlas tire changers. We employ a full staff of Atlas technicians who can assist you (over the phone or in our warehouses) in repairing your Atlas equipment with genuine Atlas parts.The Atlas WB 11 has a newly designed keypad and display screen that is user-friendly and allows the operator to input and retrieve data very easily.The Atlas WB 11 wheel balancer handles wheels that weigh up to 90 LB. Most computer wheel balancers are not made in the USA. Most Big Name wheel balancer companies have one or several models of their computer wheel balancers line made in China. Famous brand names such as Hunter ® wheel balancers, Coats ® wheel balancers, Corghi ® wheel balancers, CEMB ® wheel balancers, Accu-Turn ® wheel balancers, Snap-On ® wheel balancers, Hofmann Wheel balancers ®, Ranger ® wheel balancers, and many other computer balancers manufacturers do business either directly or indirectly with Chinese manufacturers.Many people believe that only the top quality computer wheel balancers and tire changers are manufactured in Italy. Many so-called Italian tire changers and Italian computer wheel balancers are SHIPPED to the USA from Italy...but are actually made in China. We do business directly with many of the same Chinese factories that private label for the Italian “manufacturers”. Atlas makes the same quality equipment, but at a huge price difference.Atlas is proud to provide similar equipment as some of the Big Name Brands but without the Big Name Price. We know where our equipment is made and have visited the factories and suppliers in China. Most sales people of the Big Name Brand distributors have no idea where there equipment is made. These sales people have never been to any factory that makes computer wheel balancers or tire changers. They only know to tell the potential customer to not buy any tire changer or wheel balancer that comes from China. Little do they know!Auxiliary Brake:The Atlas WB-11 has a foot pedal auxiliary brake that allows the operator to hold the wheel assembly in the correct position when attaching the wheel weight to the rim.Newly Designed Computer Board:Finally, the Atlas WB 11 uses a newly designed computer board system that makes replacement of the computer board as easy as plug and play. Many of the Asian manufacturers are using computer technology that is over ten years old. All of the Atlas balancers are implementing the newest and most reliable computer technology available. This improved technology is one of the many reasons that Atlas balancers will provide years of reliable service.Warranty:Atlas offers a one year limited warranty for the Atlas tire changers. We employ a full staff of Atlas technicians who can assist you (over the phone or in our warehouses) in repairing your Atlas equipment with genuine Atlas parts.
