AMMCO® has been manufacturing brake lathes since 1922, and over the last 60 years it has sold more than a quarter of a million lathes, many of which are still in operation.
In 1947, Gil Coats first designed a wheel holder for changing tractor tires in his farm-implement business. His invention quickly evolved into the world’s first semi-automatic tire changer, and it launched one of the most respected and recognizable brands in the tire-service equipment industry. Today, Coats® tire changers and wheel balancers continue to pay tribute to their heritage while providing tire dealers with cutting-edge yet practical equipment design solutions to modern-day application challenges.
More recently, Hennessy introduced the BaseLine®line of tire changers and wheel balancers. BaseLine® offers low volume shops an affordable way to offer dependable tire changing and wheel balancing services.
For more than 50 years,BADA® has provided one of the most comprehensive selections of wheel weights in the world, and it is now leading the transition from lead weights to the most environmentally friendly alternative – steel.
