The Easy Gripper is a technological advancement in the logistical handling of OTR tires and is available for purchase now by any OTR, commercial and or wholesale tire operation in North America exclusively from Marangoni Tread N.A.
The Easy Gripper fits forklifts and is designed to safely and efficiently handle large OTR tires up to 29.5R29L5*. The logistics of handling larger tires can be time consuming and can result in tire damage and possible employee injury. The Gripper’s 3-point arms are coated with granite based grit and can grip the tire securely even when wet, icy or oily.
The advanced tire gripping technology of the Easy Gripper allows the operator to manipulate OTR tires for loading and unloading from trucks both horizontal and vertical, easy and safely stack tires, reduces the mounting and dismounting time of big tires on/off hubs, eliminates tire bead or side wall damage caused by forks and decreases the opportunity of accidents or injury from tires not properly secured while being moved.
The Easy Gripper was designed to not only increase workflow, it was primarily developed to decrease the daily strain of handling large tires and the risk of serious accidents. With a 100° tire rotation and a center mounted wide angle camera, the operator can position the wheel assembly bolt holes to align with the studs for quick and easy mounting and dismounting. , 2014)
