|GB8A BEAD BOOSTER|
(GB-8A Bead Booster In Use On 22.5 Truck Tire)
The GB-8A is the largest Bead Booster® in Gaither’s booster line. It carries an 8 gallon (32 Liter) tank which allows for use on a greater range of tire sizes. It also has two unique features: an Automatic Valve with a one-touch foot pedal release mechanism, and a built-in tire stand that automatically sets the bottom bead allowing for use of lower air pressures.
How it work mounting:
Gaither’s Automatic 8 Gallon Bead Booster® is designed to assist in the inflation of tubeless tires. This is the largest tank capacity of Gaither’s bead-seating product range. Fill the tank to the desired pressure, and then lean the tire/wheel assembly against the built-in stand of the unit. This automatically sets the back bead of the tire.
Attach an air line to the valve stem of the wheel and aim the barrel between the tire bead and wheel flange while holding the barrel with both hands. Instead of using a manual release valve, press the foot pedal release mechanism located on the lower part of the cage to allow an instantaneous blast of air to set the bead. Because the automatic valve releases the air much faster, less air pressure is necessary in the tank and is therefore more efficient than manual units.
