Tire Changers and Wheel Balancers are a mixed bag as a potential used option for your auto repair shop. Tire Changers are mechanical machines with few electrical parts and if you are buying a good brand, can be serviced by any mechanic.
Air hoses dry and crack on Tire Machines, once you fix one leak on an old machine, guarantee another leak will be popping up soon. Once you get a leaky tire machine, replace All Air Hoses. Some older Hunter Tire Changers have Air Motors, stay away from these machines, they cost thousands of dollars to repair.
Obviously, only high quality brands with parts support should be considered, Never buy cheap made. Wheel Balancers are very difficult to repair, all the internals are complex electronics and only a few people know how to service them, even top brands rarely keep every electrical component stocked. I would suggest a used tire machine purchase but only a few wheel balancers are known for to last long term.
