…pros and cons

Like the outgoing version, the new SC-5072 has one very crucial advantage over tools offered by the competition; a built-in control over the speed of the drum. This allows the operator to slow the machine as much as necessary to true either rubber or foam tyres – two at a time – without the need to purchase and external speed control.

Unfortunately, the unit appears to be suitable for 1:32-sized tyres – and, as it’s a completely new design, none of the parts or spares will be backwards-compatible with the outgoing unit.

    Hi, Colin – IBB tell me that their first production run had sold out by the end of April – so a second run is due in three to four weeks!
