Aircraft Wheel Balancers        Aircraft Wheel Balancers

Wheel balance is important. Now it's fast, accurate and affordable!
McFarlane's wheel balancer is a suspension wheel balancer with a patented design featuring a pivot point that is easily adjustable on-the-fly for maximum balance sensitivity. It is small enough to fit in a tool box and doesn't require a bulky stand. The McFarlane design is more precise than other static balancing methods, and allows the wheel and tire to be balanced with the bearings and seals installed.
