Mounted on an anodised aluminium base, this is a unique opportunity to purchase 1 of only 10 pit stop wheel guns used by McLaren F1 in the 2018 season. These were supplied by ourselves CES Europe Ltd. We are the main Formula 1 supplier in the UK for the Italian wheel gun manufacturer Dino Paoli SRL.
The guns are built either RH or LH handed (see the technical specification on the backdrop), the reason for this is the wheel nuts tighten in different directions depending on which side of the car they are on. When the gun is operating in the loosening mode 60-65% of the speed is used. When the tightening mode is chosen (by a super quick practised operator manually shifting the gun direction shuttle) 35-40% of the speed is used.
These wheel guns operate at 22-25BAR air pressure and are capable of over 2500Nm of torque.
Full verification of the gun’s use is shown on the excel spreadsheet backdrop.
Further verification by ourselves can be given
