Automotive Tools and Supplies

Automotive Tools has been supplying Wards of Burnley with hand tools and garage equipment for many years. Wards of Burnley MD – Graham Ward, has always invested in quality garage equipment that stands the test of time.

Graham has been a long-standing user of OMCN lifts and most recently invested in a new Texa diagnostic tool with car, supercar, LCV and HGV applications, and an OMCN lever-less tyre machine and wheel balancer.

Tyre Changing Machine

The 24” tyre machine, supplied by us here at Automotive Tools, comes as standard with a patented ‘power out’ system on the bead breaker to stop it getting stuck in the rim and the ‘Iron Arm’ helper arm to assist in removing run flat tyres with low beads. The pneumatic lever-less system makes light work of even the most difficult tyre changes. It also removes the chances of damaging alloy wheels, as the operator no longer has to lever the tyre up and remove the rim manually.

Tyre Changing Machine

The 24” tyre machine can be used alongside the OMCN Roll 55 balancer with automatic rim width measurement and program selection. There is an electric brake which stops the wheel at the weight placement position and it has a very fast cycle of just 5 seconds. The combination of these 2 machines make tyre changing and balancing very easy with precise efficiency.

As testimony to this machine Graham states “This machine revolutionises changing tyres” – Graham Ward, Wards of Burnley Ltd.
