It combines mounting, measurement of road force variation, and match mounting on the same machine. When that is finished, you move the tire and wheel to another machine for the usual high speed balancing. Seems like a significant time saver, compared to going back and forth between a conventional tire changer and the Hunter Road Force Balancer.

Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.
