This wheel balancer is very similar to the old UNITE U800 wheel balancer. It is a fully motorised wheel balancer with manual data input. The operator will enter the 3 specifications of offset, wheel width and wheel diameter before pulling down the guard to start the auto spin. The wheel will run through is wheel balancing cycle and then stop and the display will indicate what weight needs to be applied and where. Providing a clear LED readout and position indicators the wheel balancer will take any wheel up to 24” and a max weight of 65kg.

Wheel Balancer accuracy

Some people believe you have to spend a fortune on a wheel balancer to get an accurate balance. This isn’t true. All Fortis wheel balancers, including the 440 have an accuracy of +/- 1g. This Wheel balancer is perfect for small to medium size tyre shops. With its manual data input and a cycle of 10 seconds this wheel balancer will perform to the accuracy of 1 gram giving you a perfect balance every time.

Weight placement on wheel balancer

As with all wheel balancing, the placement of the weights are vitally important. On most wheel balancers, the weight indicated on the screen should be applied directly at the 12 o clock position. If not placed correctly, the balancer will not show a zero balance. Some models on the market vary the weight placement position to be at 3 or 6 o clock so always check carefully. The FORTIS range of wheel balancers required weights to be fixed at 12 o clock.
