*Locking Cam and Blocks when added to a Cycle Hill HD or HD Plus models work for wheel clamping only, not waist-high bead breaking without additional upgrade components.
**Waist-High Bead Breaking upgrade for a Cycle Hill HD requires the addition of the Plus Upper Arm Kit upgrade.
***Hitch Mount use with Cycle Hill HD and HD Plus models which have not been upgraded to waist-high bead breaking require the use of an alternate bead breaker such as the BeadBuster XB114.

Which Model is Best for Me?

 

Cycle Hill HD

Our most economical model, beats the cheap "freight store" imports! Best for occasional tire changing at home. Most frequent choice for Dirt Bike and ATV tire changes, but still capable enough for Harley Davidson and Vintage wheels with a little extra muscle. Includes our Posi-Clamps® Patented Wheel Clamping System which provides the most clearance for leaving pulleys, sprockets, and rotors attached plus allowing for more room to manipulate those stiffer tires to keep the bead in the drop center of the wheel. HD frame and stand help clamp wheels securely, but is less ergonomic due to limited Mount/Demount leverage with smaller, less rigid center posts than our overhead arm models. Not recommended for car and truck tires, but will do well with small trailer and agricultural tires. Bead breaking is done at ground level and includes an ATV style bead breaker. We recommend adding a scratch-proof bead breaker if keeping your wheels free from damage is important to you. Our new modular design for 2019 makes it expandable and upgradeable to a full Classic HD model if desired!

Cycle Hill HD Plus

Our intermediate model, still economical but a step up! Adds our articulating overhead arm assembly with indexable center post for maximum Mount/Demount leverage. This is the perfect entry-level tire changer for Harley Davidson, Metric Cruiser, Adventure, and Vintage owners, while making dirt bike and ATV tire changes even easier. Includes our Posi-Clamps® Patented Wheel Clamping System which provides the most clearance for leaving pulleys, sprockets, and rotors attached plus allowing for more room to manipulate those stiffer tires to keep the bead in the drop center of the wheel. HD frame and stand help clamp wheels securely, with the added leverage of our overhead arm assembly making the overall tire changing experience easier! Bead breaking is done at ground level and includes an ATV style bead breaker. We recommend adding a scratch-proof bead breaker if keeping your wheels free from damage is important to you. New modular design for 2019 makes it expandable and upgradeable to a full Classic HD model if desired!

Classic HD

Our most popular model, commercial grade and the perfect option for the serious enthusiasts! Ideal for Sport and Sport-Touring tire changes yet still fully capable to change dirt bike, ATV, and heavy cruiser tires with the addition of our Posi-Clamps®. Includes our fast and efficient patented locking Cam & Blocks Wheel Clamping System which works best with the softer, more compliant tires found on Sport and Sport Touring bikes. The Classic HD comes standard with waist-high bead breaking and a scratch-proof bead breaker. This is the perfect "pro-sumer" machine and is also a great choice for the small home-based shop or commercial shop starting out on a budget. This is the model you will see us using the most at rallys, races, and shows. New for 2019 HD stand and frame assembly helps keep your wheels clamped securely and can take the extra stresses that come with less cooperative tire and wheel combinations as well as being great for most standard car and light truck tires. Modular design allows for expanding and upgrading as needed, including making your tire changer portable with our Hitch Mount. For more than 15 years, the Classic model has been praised by countless magazine articles and reviews, and now with the Heavy Duty HD design improvements, it's our best Classic ever!

Pro Model Tire Changer

 

Professional Model

For the best in strength, durability, and flexibility, our Pro Model means business! Professional grade and offers the widest range of wheel and tire sizes, including up to a 42" tall tire and up to 16.5" (400mm) wide! The I-beam rigid upper arm supports the center post independently without touching the wheel (but still has non-marring contact points just in case!). Includes both our patented wheel clamping systems, Posi-Clamps® and locking Cam and Blocks! Also includes both waist-high and ground-level bead breaking, and both scratch-proof and ATV style bead breakers for maximum flexibility. Comes with the most accessories of all our models, including a YellowThing® bead keeper, XtraHand® Clamp bead depressors [3], and a pair of SpoonBar® tire spoons with replaceable non-marring tips. The integrated foot pedal allows the entire upper arm assembly to pivot and lock into position for waist-high bead breaking, while the spring-assisted center post makes positioning quick and easy. Whether you are a large shop with several techs, or an enthusiast who demands the best tools for the job, our Professional model makes tire changes quick and easy, and most importantly without damaging your customer's wheels!
