Next Generation Hoist | Snap-On

In Industry by fullboost

Snap-on Tools Australia and New Zealand is proud to announce the launch of a new range of Snap-on branded, high quality, efficiency building wheel service & hoist equipment to suit the automotive dealership and aftermarket repair industries.

The new Snap-on equipment, all made by Snap-on, includes vehicle hoists, wheel balancers and tyre changers that were built with the same quality Snap-on products are renowned for, offering industry leading quality and technology, all designed for workshop technicians to save time and make the workshop an easier place to work.

The centrepieces in most automotive workshops are vehicle hoists and Snap-on have built a 4T two post hoist and a 3.5T service scissor list, which represent the two most popular workshop hoists in operation.

Snap-on’s 4T two poster is no ordinary hoist. Thanks to a unique design, it can load symmetrically or asymmetrically and either forward or backward, making it like four hoists in one. The front and rear triple stage arms can handle micro cars through to LWB SUV’s.

With fast service times and high volume in mind, the 3.5T capacity Snap-on Service Scissor is a great solution and extremely versatile thanks to a clever load bearing lockable ramp design to handle short to long wheelbase vehicles and different width configuration options. Low cars are a breeze thanks to the 115m low profile design, or it can be flush mounted via the optional in ground kit.

If it’s increased profit, efficiency and accuracy you’re looking for, then Snap-on’s wheel balancer range has five models to suit every workshop situation. From the top of the range feature packed Snap-on EEWB334APAUS, down to the hand spin Snap-on EEWB330AUS, they all come with Snap-on’s unique “Virtual Plane Imaging” (VPI) technology. VPI means you should only need to place weight once. As a result, the new Snap-on wheel balancer range is considered the fastest, most accurate on the market.

Tyre sales and repair via a tyre changer is another great way to extend your workshop’s capability and Snap-on has three different units to suit all workshop requirements. The T50 Super is feature packed for high volume workshops and handles large diameter and wide rims. The T3 Super is a medium volume tyre changer, but like the T50 Super, also features the ‘Pro Bead Assist’ – a pneumatic powered third arm to increase speed, ergonomics and safety. Then there is the Snap-on T1000, an economical, robust and reliable unit for standard tyres in workshops with less frequent requirements.

Adding wheel balancers and tyre changers to a workshop can quickly become a profitable investment with a very low number of daily uses required and Snap-on’s Trade Card Finance makes a decision to invest an easy process. Your Snap-on Franchisee can walk you through an ROI calculator to see what profit your workshop could generate with a new Snap-on balancer or changer.

As always, this incredible new range of hoist and wheel service equipment is all backed and supported by a national network of local franchisees for regular customer service. Snap-on also offers an industry leading two year warranty. Contact your Snap-on Franchisee to make an investment in your workshop’s future.
