    PM me your Zipcode and let me know if you have a loading dock or not.. I can get you a price Monday on a New TC400 shipped.. As far as close to 1K it won’t happen for a new one

    I think I paid about $1,600 or $1,700 delivered for a Derek Weaver motorcycle changer a couple years ago. Works perfectly. I can't even think of anything I'd improve. I've even used it to change some trailer tires.

    TWF2 2 heads are better than 1

    I have Corghi but needs little tlc, bead breaker arm has leak somewhere. Rest of it works. It has wheels and handlebar welded to it for moving in and out of trailer and around the shop.
    It is the one in corner (can take better picture if needed). $500 takes it

    I just bought a Derek Weaver changer to put in the trailer. Seems like its good quality. Just showed up yesterday. I have 2 atlas machines in the shop. They are ok aswell. The weaver was 1700 to my door, i thought that was CHEAP. If tire changing was my business, maybe id buy a nicer Coats or Hunter, and spend 4-5k but to change 5-10 soft motorcycle tires a weekend this thing will make life way easier.

    Sooooo, did you get one from TLR? He hooked several of us with the GERMAN made TC-400.

    I've had my Derek Weaver for...probably 8 years at this point. Compared to a shop, I hardly do any changes. Might use it 30-50 times a season. Paid for itself, obviously, several times over and has been working great.
