Wheel Popper FAQs

Can I use single-phase power with a wheel popper?

Our electric wheel poppers offer only three-phase motors. If your facility has just single-phase power available, our diesel engine wheel poppers may be the best option for your needs. Contact our team at Solid Equipment Company for a quote.

Does a wheel popper work with alloy wheels?

Yes, it works with both steel and aluminum alloy wheels. Alloy wheels are more brittle, however, so the wheel may have to be repositioned once or more to successfully separate the tire from the wheel.

Should I buy a new or used wheel popper?

Either is a good option, but it will depend on your budget. A new wheel popper will cost more initially, but it will require less maintenance and repair. A used wheel popper can be a great investment if you are willing to do a bit of work to get it running smoothly, such as replacing hydraulic seals, replacing leaking hoses, or repairing other common issues. At Solid Equipment Company, we often have quality used equipment at significant savings, as well as new equipment for competitive prices.
