Description: The Atlas TC 289 wheel clamp tire changer is the perfect wheel clamp tire changer for most general automotive service departments and medium sized tire stores. This tire changer is perfect for changing the tires on large SUV and one ton trucks. The Atlas TC289 can be fitted with either the LH assist arm or the Atlas DAA arm assembly 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 ADUSTABLE 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 TC289 wheel clamp tire changer. The Atlas TC 289 wheel clamp tire changer comes standard with the powerful bead blast system and inflator hose adapter and pressure gauge. Bead Blaster: The Atlas TC 289 wheel clamp tire changer is equipped with the revolutionary Atlas bead blast inflation system. The Bead Blaster design found on most of our Atlas tire changers provides an enormous amount of air pressure and volume (blasting air through the air holes positioned near the movable turntable jaws) to seat the beads on most stiff sidewall tires. This tremendous volume of air, directed to the inside cavity of the tire, forces both tire sidewalls to press solidly against the wheel so that the tire will “hold air”. Atlas wheel clamp tire changers offer this exclusive bead blast design on most of their tire changers.
The use of Atlas Motorcycle/ATV Flip Adaptersprevents the use of the air bead blast feature on this tire changer. The adapters are slid over the standard wheel clamp jaws on the tire changer table and will block the holes through which the bead blast shoots the jets of air. This means that you will not be able to use the Bead Blaster to help you reseat the bead of a tire when you are using either of these adapter sets.
