  1. ESCO Extends Product Line with Family of Tire Bead Seaters

    Brooksville, FL, September 28, 2020 – ESCO, a leading worldwide manufacturer and supplier of tire changing tools and accessories is pleased to introduce a full line of redesigned tire bead seaters, the Hurricane and Cyclone series. Used to seat the tire bead on all size tires, ESCO now offers a full range of bead seaters available in a variety of tank capacities and discharge valves.

    ESCO’s bead seater products provide a hassle-free, fast solution to seat the beads on an array of tires ranging from golf carts up to heavy-duty and OTR applications. Both the Cyclone and Hurricane bead seater models are equipped with robust air tanks, all ASME certified. The Cyclone series includes a robust steel air tank, equipped with a newly redesigned butterfly release valve designed to throwback, instead of forward, for better control and accuracy. The Hurricane series bead seater tanks are available in three sizes (5, 9, and 13 gallons), all equipped with lightweight aluminum air tanks and reinforced heavy-duty welded feet with protective rubber for increased longevity while not in use. Hurricane series bead seaters are designed to deliver a quick burst of precise and accurate air with the release of the external push-button style valve. All bead seater models prevent wasting air in the discharge process while providing a safe and controlled application.

    “Bead Seaters are the most efficient tools used to seat a tire bead during the tire mounting process,” commented ESCO Western Regional Sales Manager, James Lueras, “ESCO’s extensive new line of bead seaters offers a range of models with different features compatible with their exact application to suit any technicians needs.”

    All ESCO bead seaters are equipped with a high-force discharge barrel, designed for precise, maximum air release. Each style seater possesses a fast and powerful discharge system to quickly release air and seat tire beads on the first shot. Both the Cyclone and Hurricane bead seater models include safety glasses and hearing protection.

    Chris Manfre, 32

    Sales and Marketing Manager, ESCO

    Christopher Manfre began working with ESCO, a leading manufacturer of tire service tools and equipment, in 2009 while still completing his Bachelor’s degree in Marketing at the University of South Florida, Tampa. His first ESCO work revolved around the curation and development of digital media and product videos. Before long, Manfre was taking on the design of ESCO’s tire service tool and equipment catalog. Now over 10 years later, he oversees the entire marketing department, assisting with product and sales development, branding, and general business operations.

    “Reflecting on my career growth with ESCO, I think my proudest achievement was being assigned to lead product development of a line of tire tools and accessories,” says Manfre. “The most exciting part of the tire and wheel market really boils down to product development and innovations in tools for mounting and demounting tires and wheels. Our customer ranges from the DIY automotive enthusiast who wants the right tools to work safely and correctly on his hot rod or project to the skilled professional tire technician replacing the largest of tires on the biggest haul trucks.”
