The PL-1200 tire changer is a swing-arm style tire changer designed for home garages and light use in repair shops. It employs an electro-pneumatic system to assist you in changing tires efficiently. So, in theory, all you have to do is press a few pedals and watch the magic happen (it’s a bit more complicated than that but you get the point).
More specifically, the PL-1200 tire changer comes with four pneumatic clamps and a side-mounted bead breaker capable of exerting 5,500 lbs. of force to separate even the stickiest beads from any wheel. It also comes with all the other parts and hardware for the pneumatic system, including a water separator, lubricator, and pressure regulator to ensure it lasts for years to come.
Worth mentioning, you can use PULI’s tire machine to change tires up to 39″ in diameter, provided the wheel diameter is between 12″-24″ for inside mounting and between 10”-21” for outside jaw mounting — pretty much a standard in the automotive industry.
PULI’s PL-1200 tire changing machine is super easy to use, thanks to the common but quite efficient swing-arm design and rugged clamps to hold the tire securely at all times. Of course, this design is nothing new and if you’ve worked in a repair shop before, you’ve probably used one like this at some point.
The PL-1200 tire changing machine is your standard run-of-the-mill tire changer for personal and occasional professional use and that’s pretty much all there is to say about it. Still, it may not come with fancy features, but it does the job and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. If you are looking for a pretty decent model for a small repair shop or a residential garage, this model is well worth considering. On the other hand, if you run a tire shop and change tires day in, day out, we have better ones for you below.
