Rotary offers three heavy-duty tire changer models, with descriptions and application recommendations by the company:

Its compact design is ideal for truck tires, bus tires and super singles. Maximum tire width is 21 in. and maximum diameter is 52 in.

The standard roller can be used for tube tires, and the hydraulic clamping and table top are suitable for agricultural tires. Maximum tire width is 37.4 in. and maximum diameter is 51 in.
- R511 Commercial HD: The R511 Commercial HD can service the widest range of wheels, including truck, bus, super single, lock ring and agricultural.
