The Atlas WB-11 is the most popular Atlas wheel balancer that we sell. Low price, dependability and repeatable accuracy make the Atlas WB-11 one of the most popular models of the entire Atlas line of computer wheel balancers.The Atlas WB-11 is very a simple, yet sophisticated wheel balancer. Each electrical component part is virtually "plug and play" so repair is easy when it is time to replace parts. The Atlas WB-11 is capable of self-diagnosing problems and displays error codes so the operator can make the necessary adjustments or repairs in his own shop. There is no need to wait for the high priced service technician to visit your store. The simplicity of the Atlas WB-11, both in ease of use and ease of repair, make this balancer the perfect choice for your shop. The Atlas WB-11 wheel balancer handles wheels that weigh up to 130 LB.
This Atlas Wheel Balancer has a newly designed keypad and display screen that is user-friendly and allows the operator to input and retrieve data very easily. This Atlas Wheel Balancer has several different wheel weight positioning modes that allow the operator to the spin the wheel assembly one time and identify several different weight positions with just a touch of the button.
Many custom wheel owners want their stick on wheel weights to be applied to the inside of the rim, and this wheel balancer shows the operator exactly how much weight is required and where to apply the weight on the inside of the rim with just one spin. Conventional steel wheels require a clip on weight to be attached to the outside and the inside of the rim. The Atlas Wheel Balancer can automatically calculate where the weights need to be placed with just the touch of a button.
This Atlas Wheel Balancer uses a newly designed computer board system that makes replacement of the computer board as easy as plug and play. Many of the Asian manufacturers are using computer technology that is over ten years old. All of the Atlas balancers are implementing the newest and most reliable computer technology available. This improved technology is one of the many reasons that Atlas balancers will provide years of reliable service. This is a self-calibrating computer wheel balancer. There is no need to calibrate the balancer each morning when you turn it on.
The Atlas® Brand
Greg Smith Equipment Sales is the largest distributor of Atlas Automotive Equipment. The Atlas Brand has been synonymous with the highest quality automotive service equipment and related automotive products (for the lowest possible price) for many years! Atlas products are sold all over the world.
We stock Atlas brand tire changers, wheel balancers, above ground lifts, alignment machines and many other automotive aftermarket service products.
Most computer wheel balancers are not made in the USA. Most Big Name wheel balancer companies have one or several models of their computer wheel balancers line made in China. Famous brand names such as Hunter ® wheel balancers, Corghi ® wheel balancers, Accu-Turn ® wheel balancers, Snap-On ® wheel balancers, Hofmann Wheel balancers ®, Ranger ® wheel balancers, and many other computer balancers manufacturers do business either directly or indirectly with Chinese manufacturers.
Many people believe that only the top quality computer wheel balancers and tire changers are manufactured in Italy. Many so-called Italian tire changers and Italian computer wheel balancers are SHIPPED to the USA from Italy...but are actually made in China. We do business directly with many of the same Chinese factories that private label for the Italian "manufacturers". Greg Smith Equipment sells the same quality equipment, but at a huge price difference.
Greg Smith Equipment is proud to provide similar equipment as some of the Big Name Brands but without the Big Name Price. We know where our equipment is made and have visited the factories and suppliers in China. Most sales people of the Big Name Brand distributors have no idea where there equipment is made. These sales people have never been to any factory that makes computer wheel balancers or tire changers. They only know to tell the potential customer to not buy any tire changer or wheel balancer that comes from China. Little do they know!

How Wheel Balancers Work
The computer within the balancer receives the premeasured values of wheel dimensions and responds to the output of a rotational speed sensor that monitors the rotational speed of the shaft. When the required speed is reached, the mechanical system automatically decouples the powered cranking shaft from the wheel shaft so that there can be no externally applied disturbances for the subsequent measurements of imbalance. Multiple spaced transducers along the shaft determine the wheel run-out attributable to imbalances in both the inner and outer wheel rim planes and the computer provides output signals indicative of the correct balance weight and the mounting positions of the weights on the wheel rim.
How Do I Get My Stuff Off The Truck?:
Many customers do not have access to loading docks and forklifts. We have assembled some photos of our products being unloaded with and without the aid of a forklift. Many of our freight carriers have power tailgates on their delivery trucks. There may be an extra charge for the power tailgate, depending on the carrier. The power tailgate is normally rated at 1000 LB. capacity. This is not enough capacity to unload most of our lifts. However, when used properly (and safely), the power tailgate (in conjunction with some common sense) allows the customer to off load many of our products without the use of a forklift.
Most truck shipments will be delivered by a commercial freight carrier operating a tractor/trailer rig. The semi trailer will be enclosed. Most commercial carriers have smaller straight trucks and some have small flatbed trucks, but the majority of freight companies will not use these smaller trucks for your delivery. Greg Smith Equipment cannot guarantee the type of truck that will be used for delivery. You should assume that your product will be delivered on a tractor/trailer rig that uses a 53 foot enclosed trailer. This is a VERY LONG rig. It is the truck driver's responsibility to make sure that your product is brought to the back of the delivery truck. It is the customer's responsibility to unload the product from the truck.
If you are going to have your products shipped, please review the following:
1. Shipping a large product to a business address or to a freight terminal creates far less headaches than shipping to a residence. 2. Are you sure that a semi with a 53 foot trailer can access your delivery area? 3. Do you have the proper equipment to off load your product? The truck driver will move the product to the back of the truck, but it is the customer's responsibility to unload. 4. Have you discussed the GSES shipping policy with your salesperson? 5. If you are shipping your product to a buddy's business (because he has the forklift), are you 100% sure that he will inspect your shipment for concealed damages?
Also: Please read (and understand) the following the articles to make sure there is no confusion about your responsibility in the shipping process. We ship thousands of lifts, tire changers, wheel balancers, air compressors and other pieces of large equipment each year. Once you (the customer) order from us (the distributor), our goal is to make sure that delivery of your purchase goes as smoothly as possible. If you have questions, please get them asked and answered before the delivery truck pulls into your driveway.
Greg Smith Equipment stocks a complete inventory of parts for the equipment we sell. We employ a full staff of technicians who can assist you (over the phone or in our warehouses) in repairing your equipment with genuine parts. Certain Competitors do not stock the equipment they advertise and do not stock any of the parts or accessories.
