MADISON, Ind. — Rotary Lift has introduced the R544 Pro Truck 2D wheel balancer, which is designed to help technicians quickly and accurately balance a variety of commercial bus, truck, and passenger-vehicle wheels.

The R544 features a microprocessor with self-calibration and self-diagnostic features, according to the supplier. It also has specific balancing programs for static, dynamic, and light alloy/aluminum wheels. One single spin with low-rotation speed can provide all the necessary values.

The R544 can raise up to 441 pounds with the integrated wheel lift and features a pneumatic wheel lock. An electro-pneumatic brake keeps the wheel in the unbalance position. The digital caliper with optical scanner provides 2-D automatic data input of distance and diameter of up to 26 inches.

“If you’re looking for a versatile truck wheel balancer that will get you the results you need quickly, the R544 Pro Truck 2D is the model for you,” said Rob Dabrowski, vice president of wheel service equipment for Rotary Lift's parent company, Vehicle Service Group. “The self-calibration and self-diagnostic features allow you to handle anything that rolls into your shop.”

The wheel balancer can also be seen in action at Rotary Lift's booth, No. 3469, during the American Public Transportation Association Expo at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from Oct. 9 to 11.
