Hard To Believe It’s That Time Again, But SEMA Is Just A Few Weeks Away
Hard To Believe It’s That Time Again, But SEMA Is Just A Few Weeks Away. The years really do seem to be getting shorter and shorter…probably a sign of my age…or the fact that it has been an exhaustively busy year at Allpart from business development to new product development and website development etc. etc. ad infinitum…We are growing rapidly, and time flies when you are having fun.
We are really excited about the 2016 SEMA show in Las Vegas, as we will be launching two new Haweka products: the Haweka Bike Boss Motorcycle Balancer will be introduced for the first time in the United States, and the Haweka Airgo Wheel Lift will be introduced with a definitive, hard launch after last year’s soft launch at SEMA. In addition, we will be introducing Allpart branded Power Units for automotive lifts into our product portfolio.
The Bike Boss is an exciting product as it is the first motorcycle wheel balancer with both static AND TRUE dynamic balancing. Also, wheels are mounted and centered on the Bike Boss balancer exactly as they are on the bike for precision balancing results. Set up, balancing and data entry are made simple with Haweka’s soft touch potentiometer operation. Bike Boss is suitable for wheels ranging from small 12” scooter wheels to large 21” enduro wheels. If you are looking for a premium solution to motorcycle balancing at a fair and economical price, we encourage you to stop by the booth for a demo on the Bike Boss motorcycle balancer.
As mentioned, there was an Airgo Wheel Lift in our booth last year as one for the future product line. This year, the Airgo Lift will be making its full debut after an update and modification or two have it primed and ready for the North American marketplace. Since speed, efficiency and safety are highly important factors in every tire shop, Haweka has developed an “Airgonomically” correct wheel lift that provides optimum support for mounting wheels on balancers. The lift is raised and lowered pneumatically with a one-handed, easy grip handle to find the perfect lift height for the best possible mounting. This is no cheaply made, disposable wheel lift that causes more trouble than the low price is worth. This is a robust, high quality wheel lift built to last and ensure a long service life. We invite you to come by the booth for a test drive on the new Haweka Airgo Wheel Lift.
Allpart is pleased to announce that we will be offering an Allpart branded power unit to the North American marketplace starting January 2017. Allpart has had tremendous success selling premium SPX Fenner Stone power units to its customers over the years and will continue to do so. However, with the Allpart branded power units, we will be offering premium power units with all the features and benefits of SPX at a very affordable price, giving our current customers the best of both worlds.
As always, we will have a full complement of Haweka Centering Solutions and adapters for passenger car, light truck, SUV and Medium Duty applications featuring our ProExpert, ProCentering and Pro Max centering systems. To demonstrate how these systems improve balancing results over standard tooling, we will showcase wheels causing the most problems in shops across the country and provide centering solutions for chrome clad wheels, Toyota Tundra, Dodge 3500, Chevy Silverado 2500 8×180 and Ford F-250. And, if you really want an earful, mention front coning and we will be happy to explain why it has to be eliminated from the wheel balancing process. So, come by the booth, see the new products, and let us provide educational insights into wheel balancing, centering and doing the job right.
Finally, we are very close to announcing our new Allpart website for Lift Parts and Lift Parts Network, our online parts look up database. The website comes complete with a heavy dose of product information and details the problems and causes affecting safe and proper lift operation in the shop. Stop by for a sneak peek of the website and ask any questions you have on Lift Parts Network, lift parts, or lift service and repair.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you in Las Vegas. Best of luck and remember…what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Until then, if you’re going to lie, lie for a friend. If you’re going to steal, steal a heart. If you’re going to cheat, cheat, death. And if you’re going to drink, drink with me!
Slainte mhor agad!
