The annual SEMA Show kicked off Oct. 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada this year. The new products showcase is the number one event destination for event goers – offering over 3,000 new and featured products.

Attendees used scanners to create personalized lists of products with detailed descriptions and the contact information needed for follow-up. Here is one we were especially interested in!

Hunter Engineering Company Center-Clamp Tire Changer

Adding to their family of center-clamp tire changer models, Hunter Engineering introduced the TC37 and TC39. The TC37 offers the traditional polymer mount head that protects the rim and tire and a vertical locking head that protects the wheel face. Both models feature a simple- to-use single pendant control, a bead press arm, two bead-loosening rollers with direct indention, and a powerful variable-speed drive as standard equipment. Options include a side shovel feature for quick and easy bead breaking on standard tires and a wheel lift that eases operator fatigue with large and heavy tires.
