The 5500 tire spreader is the most wanted spreader for tire shops. It can handle everything from passenger tires to super-singles, but it’s typically used to inspect and repair truck tires. It has adjustable height and a tire ramp for loading. The 5500 has manual tire rotation, and the tool tray swivels for left-hand or right-hand operation. The tool tray also has four air ports – two on each side. The controls for the lift, as well as the spreader, are also located on both sides of the unit. Tires load easily onto the platform, an air cylinder lifts the tire up to 35″ off the ground, and the tire ramp retracts automatically for complete accessibility. The ramp extends out again when lowered.
