The Bead Bazooka® Tommy Gun

 

beadbazooka

A portable, powerful and fun bead seater from Eagle Equipment

Setting the bead on a difficult tire can be a frustrating problem to deal with. Eagle Equipment has a solution that is quick, easy, portable, affordable and really fun to use!

The Bead Bazooka® Tommy Gun is a powerful and user-friendly tire inflator that is used in conjuction with your tire changer for those stubborn tires.. With its 2” MIS valve (patent pending), the 6 Liter Bead Bazooka Tommy Gun is able to inflate even the most stubborn tires. Use it on car tires, truck tires, ATV tires, motorcycle tires and small agricultural tires. It is recommended for worn tires. Those tires your changer can’t handle on it’s own.

Effectively, the Bead Bazooka is an air tank system that blasts a powerful burst of air between the tire and the rim. This causes the tire to expand over bead, enabling you to inflate those stubborn worn tires.

The Bead Bazooka Tommy Gun is completely serviceable and covered by a three-year manufacturer’s warranty.


Bead Bazooka® Features:

  • The gun’s grip is designed to be comfortable and allow for superior control.
  • The slotted double barrel directs air for the best overall lift and increases the volume of air forced into the tire.
  • The new manual MIS valve releases air faster than any other bead seater valve available.
  • The MIS release valve is fully serviceable and the proprietary tank coating guarantees no interior rust for years.

 

The Bead Bazooka® Tommy Gun is Easy-to-Use

  1. Fill the tank to the manufacturer’s recommended PSI (between 50 and 120 PSI) and then disconnect the air line from the Bead Bazooka.
  2. Attach an airline to the valve stem of the wheel.
  3. Hold the bead bazooka with both hands, while wearing appropriate safety gear.
  4. Aim the bazooka between the tire bead and wheel flange, keeping it 2”-3” from the rim, and release the manual valve.
  5. A blast of air will set the bead while the steady airflow continues to inflate your tire.

Eagle Equipment has been a trusted source in the automotive industry since 1954. Our sales team is available to answer any questions you have on the Bead Bazooka® Tommy Gun.

What to do when receiving your freight?

**DO NOT sign the Bill of Lading before checking your shipment for damages, concealed damages, or missing parts.**

When ordering equipment with our company one common problem can happen, the freight can become lost or damaged. The process for finding out who is responsible for the damaged freight could take months, and discovering whether freight had been stolen or lost on route can be difficult. As a shipper we will never be able prevent all instances of lost or damaged freight, but we can ensure that your equipment is replaced and provide solutions to prevent further instances.

Here are six important steps to follow when accepting your shipment:

1) Take a close look at delivered freight and inspect all details. Pay attention to every part or item; open crates if needed – there could be concealed damages. Determine what exactly is stolen, missing or damaged. Don’t be intimidated by the driver, who can claim he or she is in a hurry for the next route – you have a right to record all details if needed.

2) Write everything down and take photos, if possible. The more documentation the better, this will allow us to hold the freight company accountable. Make notes of damages and shortages on the delivery receipt and contact our customer service department as soon as possible. Don’t underestimate the importance of communication and cooperation.

3) If the freight is damaged beyond repair, refuse the shipment and contact our customer service department. Please make sure all packages are intact. If the equipment is needed to return back to our warehouse, we want to ensure the shipment is packaged properly to prevent any damages during transit.

4) Concealed damages must be reported to the freight company within three days of delivery. It is the customer’s responsibility to file for damaged claims against the freight company. Fill out the proper freight claim which will be provided to you by the freight company.

***The carrier must acknowledge a claim within 30 days of initial filling. Concealed damages and shortages should be reported to the carrier within 3 days of receipt of the load.

5) Keep all damaged freight for pick up or salvage.

6) Keep all necessary documents:

  • A copy of the bill of lading
  • A copy of the freight bill (paid)
  • A copy of the invoice showing the amount paid for the goods
  • A copy of the packing slip
  • A standard claim form or a letter identifying the shipment and the claim amount
  • Photos of the damage

A WHOLE NEW MEANING TO LEGENDARY STORAGE (LIFT)

As I walked into the large and unassuming, storage building I braced myself for what I might see. He told me to “hang on while I get the lights “ …. and as I stood there I could make out the shapes of what I knew would be an amazing collection.

The lights came on and there stood a row of the Eagle 4-post storage lifts with some historic and monumental race cars stored on them. Some gathered thick layers of dust while others were respectfully covered. This storage building held amazing treasures of the past.
IMG_6547The man who became “The King” has been in racing for over 50 years. His daddy was a NASCAR driver. These treasures were more than cars… they told his story, and the stories of his son and grandson. That’s why they are kept, and stored with care.

IMG_6539The weight of the history that stood around me suddenly hit me, and goosebumps rose up. I almost forgot that I was there to get photos of the Eagle storage lifts. There were cars that Richard Petty drove, including his last win at Daytona. There was the car the Kyle Petty drove when he was at Wood Brothers Racing. There were even Adam Petty’s cars that were considerately covered. The legend that is the Petty family is not only in racing or in North Carolina, but in their life are abundant. They make you feel truly special and want you to take a part in their history.

If you want to experience it too, you should visit the Richard Petty Museum in Randleman, NC. To have been able to be a part of this special space with the Eagle brand is an experience that is truly unexplainable. What will you store on your Eagle lift? I bet it’ll be legendary. IMG_6555

Four Maintenance Tasks For for Your 2-Post Car Lift

If you own a mechanic shop or you like to do work on your own vehicles, you might be in the market for a car lift. Car lifts make performing routine and complicated maintenance much easier because you do not have to get down on the ground or under the car. There are several different types of lifts, but the most popular are the 2- and 4-post lifts. At Eagle Equipment, we carry both.

4-post lifts are more suitable for vehicle storage, and 2-post lifts are a lot better for major reconstruction and mechanical repairs. Realize which projects are easier when you own a 2-post lift and make the right investment.

Below, find four common repairs that can be done more efficiently with a 2-post automotive lift.

1. VROOM! VROOM! Working on the Engine
If the full frame is under the body of the car and you are working on the engine, a 2-post application will make it easy for you to lift the car up off of the engine and the suspension sub frames. This makes the job less involved and complicated.

2. Transmission Repairs
Hoisting the car off of the ground with a 2-post application will also make for easier transmission repairs. They will provide easy access to the transmission from the undercarriage of the vehicle and will prevent causing damage to other vehicle components you would have to bypass when working under the hood.

3. Tire Rotations
When you are doing tire rotations you need all of the wheels to be off of the ground. These lifts are far more convenient then using a car jack and will prevent errors and injuries when you are rotating tires. It will take less time to complete this type of project. Using a car jack can be dangerous because it can easily slip while you are working under the vehicle.

4. Quick and Easy Oil Changes
If you do not want to get dirty while you are doing an oil change, a car lift is the answer. These lifts will give you easy access to the oil pan so you can perform oil changes in less time.

Working on difficult projects or even routine tasks is much easier when you have the right equipment, so it’s time to invest in an automotive lift! You can keep your customers satisfied and get your home projects done quickly so you can enjoy your free time. Shop Eagle Equipment Lifts now.
