Austin designs and manufactures three-arm tyre handlers with 2,500 kg capacity.

Our tyre handlers are suitable for surface and underground equipment.



Austin’s T3 Tyre Handler is an innovative design requiring no conventional pad rotation. This reduces the extended centre of gravity during operation, making them compatible with smaller, more compact machinery.

The clamp cylinders are fully hidden to maximise visibility and accessibility around the tyre handler during tyre manipulation.

Other features include:

  • Ability to slew for correct alignment of rim stud holes and valve stems
  • Fully adjustable clamp arms for a range of tyre and rim combinations
  • Main body rotation (hydraulic cylinder)
  • Safety lock valves fitted to all cylinders
  • Heavy-duty slew ring for body rotation
  • Low-profile clamp pads for easy access to confined clearances
  • Optional high-power LED work lights
  • Optional camera with cab-mounted monitor
  • Simultaneous clamping of arms in three directions simultaneously
  • Attachment lugs allowing forward rotation for clamping tyres on the ground in a horizontal position


Why choose Austin for your tyre handlers?

Austin is a global innovative engineering company that brings practical and evidence-based research into the design and construction of all our customised machinery, and it’s no different with tyre handlers.

In developing the T3 tyre handlers we research what an operator needed from their customised tool, and what are some of the challenges of fitting the tyres of heavy equipment quickly and easily. That’s why we have designed a tyre handler for the mining industry with low-profile clamps for easy access to confined clearance. 

The mining industry demands efficiencies in its operations and Austin’s research and development focus on delivering the right solutions.

Global expertise and engineering excellence

Austin has workshops in some of the key mining services centres in Australia, South East Asia, North America and South America and partnerships in many other regions around the world. We develop technology that is used in handling tyres at mine sites and service centres in some of the most isolated places in challenging conditions where reliability and durability are key. 

We also have flexibility in our technology which means you need one tyre handler to remove and install a wide variety of tyres.



Customer focus in the mining industry

Not sure what your site needs? Then talk to us because if the T3 tyre handler is not the all-purpose tool you are after, then we can definitely give you advice on your best options. It’s because we focus on delivering client solutions first, and we have professionals in tyre safety and maintenance in the mining industry.

Customer focus is core in four of our six values because the customer experience is also part of our research and innovation evaluations. There is no use making advanced tyre handlers if it’s not what the client wants or needs to increase productivity. 

We want all of our technology to reduce handling time and reduce risk while building productivity and workplace safety.
