Title (EN) WHEEL LIFT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE LEVAGE DE ROUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A wheel lift system for efficiently lifting and positioning a wheel and tire onto a wheel hub. The wheel lift system includes a first arm and a second arm pivotally attached to one another, a plurality of caster wheels attached to the lower portion of the arms, and a first support and a second support extending from the arms respectively for supporting a wheel and tire. A bias member is preferably attached to the arms for providing a bias force that assists in elevating the wheel and tire. Alternatively, a bias unit may be attached to the arms for providing a bias force that assists in maintaining elevation of a wheel and tire.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de levage de roue pour soulever et positionner efficacement une roue et un pneu sur un moyeu de roue. Le système de levage de roue comprend un premier bras et un second bras fixés de manière rotative l'un à l'autre, une pluralité de roulettes fixées à la partie inférieure des bras, et un premier support et un second support s'étendant à partir des bras, respectivement, pour supporter une roue et un pneu. Un élément de sollicitation est, de préférence, fixé aux bras pour fournir une force de sollicitation qui permet l'élévation de la roue et du pneu. En variante, une unité de sollicitation peut être fixée aux bras pour fournir une force de sollicitation qui permet de maintenir l'élévation d'une roue et d'un pneu.
