Park Tyres, the exclusive distributor of the Giuliano range of workshop equipment unveiled Giuliano’s QX leverless attachment to great effect at the recent Auto Trade EXPO in Dublin.
“All visitors to our Stand were astonished with the ease at which we were fitting Runflat tyres with the Giuliano QX leverless attachment,” said James Donelan of Park Tyres.
QX is a leverless mount / demount device, suitable for conventional, UHP and Run Flat tyres. With an exclusive Giuliano patent, it works in the same exact way as a traditional tyre bar, but without the operator’s manual force.
Activated by an air operated cylinder, and controlled by a simple switch, it allows the finger tool to be inserted step by step into the wheel drop centre, to ease demounting operations.
With the same procedure, it can control bead lifting operations, to avoid damaging the tyre bead. The tool head is protected by nylon-kevlar inserts, easily replaceable, to avoid damage on alloy wheels.
When combined with the bead breaker disk or help arm roller, it provides additional bead pressing power to mount the top bead of the most difficult low profiled and stiff sidewall tyres.
Its most innovative feature, though, is the chance to install it in a fast and easy way on all different types of conventional tyre changers, even as a retro-fit kit. You can basically upgrade your conventional tyre changer to a leverless model, in just a few minutes !
