The Atlas® WB49-2 represents the very latest generation of Atlas® Wheel Balancer technology. The premium WB49-2 boasts special features such as Automatic 2D Data Entry, the offset and diameter are entered automatically using the inner measuring gauge, an all new LED display monitor style, and a chassis designed to give the balancer a far more practical and aesthetic look. Other luxury features of the WB49-2 are the Split-Weight Function for discreetly locating weights behind the spokes and an automatic LED light to illuminate the inside of the rim when applying weights. Finally this model, like the Atlas® WB41, has a raised display which is easier to read and use and a larger, more spacious wheel weight tray.
The Atlas® WB49-2 is capable of self-diagnosing problems and displays error codes so the operator can make the necessary adjustments or repairs in his own shop. There is no need to wait for the high priced service technician to visit your store. The WB49-2 handles a wide range of wheels on the market with a capability of up to 32″ diameter rims. The WB49-2 comes with a set of 4 cones to accommodate center holes from 1.75″ up to 5.18″. An adapter kit made up of a larger cone and a spacer, the Light Truck Adapter Kit, can be purchased separately to handle bigger center holes and more off-set wheels.
The Atlas® WB49-2 wheel balancer balances wheels that weigh up to 150 LB. Many balancers claim that they have 150 lb wheel capacity. There is a BIG difference between the shaft being able to support a 150 lb wheel assembly and the balancer being able to accurately balance the 150 lb. wheel assembly.
