Cheetah® Rebate Program

CHEETAH® REBATE PROGRAM
Please read all the following information.

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Cheetah® Bead Seater!!!

If you want to take advantage of the $50 rebate and haven’t purchased a new Cheetah® Bead Seater please call your Distributor

Here are 3 easy steps to get your $50 rebate

1. Save the box from your new Cheetah® Bead Seater, put the old tank stamped 2012 or older(no valves,gauges,etc) in the box.

2. Call Us at  800-223-4540 or 602-437-5020 to obtain your rebate form

3. Ship the old tank (User Pays Transport Cost), completed rebate form, proof of purchase of new Cheetah® Bead Seater to the address on the rebate form

In 2-3 weeks after receipt of your old cheetah tank with completed rebate form your $50 rebate check will be sent to the address on the rebate form.  You can call us to check the status of your rebate by referencing the # on the upper right portion of your rebate form.

FAQ

Why do I have to pay for the shipping to return the old tank?  Trying to create call tags and coordinate pick ups required too many man hours and therefore we decided to change the rebate from $25 to $50 to offset the cost of shipping. Our plant has been instructed to refuse any shipments that are marked C.O.D., collect or billed to our account

Do I have to purchase a new Cheetah® tank to receive the rebate? Yes, any of the complete line of Cheetah® Bead Seating tanks qualifies for the rebate, however you must purchase a tank of equal or greater value to receive the rebate.

Why do I have to call you get to the rebate form? The rebates are individually numbered and tracked for insurance purposes to each tank being returned.  It also allows us to schedule appropriate labor to handle larger volumes of tanks being returned.

What happens if I sent the tank without the rebate form? We cannot guarantee a rebate on a tank that is returned without the rebate form.  PLEASE, send the rebate form with the tank.

Is my damaged tank that is less than 5 years old eligible for the rebate?  No

What tanks qualify for the rebate? Any Cheetah® Bead Seating tank that is date stamped 2012 or older

Where do I find the date stamp on my Cheetah® Bead Seater? There is a metal plate welded to the tank which will have the serial number and year stamped into the metal.

Tire Service Equipment Manufacturing Concludes Litigation and Enforces Patent Rights against Gaither Tool Company
-Ruling affirms Cheetah® Cannon as only push button, automated discharge bead seater in U.S.-

PHOENIX (Jan. 27, 2016) –Tire Service Equipment Manufacturing Co., Inc. (TSISSG) announced today the conclusion of its patent infringement litigation against Gaither Tool Co. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank has entered a consent judgment and injunction finding that Gaither’s U.S. Bead Bazooka® line of tire bead seaters infringes on TSISSG’s U.S. Patent 6,179,033, which covers TSISSG’s Cheetah® Cannon product, and finding that Gaither induced infringement of TSISSG’s patent.

The Court entered a permanent injunction enjoining Gaither from “directly or indirectly making, using, selling, offering for sale or importing or causing or inducing others to make, use, sell, offer to sell, or import” all of Gaither’s Bead Bazooka® products in the United States for the term of U.S. Patent No. 6,179,033.

As a result of the injunction, TSISSG’s patented Cheetah® Cannon bead seater remains as the only push button, automated discharge bead seater on the market in the United States. The Cheetah® Cannon represents the next evolution of TSISSG’s classic Cheetah® line of bead seaters, and is available in a range of models through TSISSG’s nationwide distribution network.

This is the second time Gaither has been required to remove a product infringing on TSISSG’s patents in the U.S. The injunction applies to Gaither’s entire line of Bead Bazooka® products, including model numbers BB6L, BB9L and BB12L.

Randy Kindel, Vice President of Sales at TSISSG said, “We are pleased that we have again successfully enforced our valuable patent rights and maintained our position as the most innovative tire bead seater supplier in the United States. Our technological advantage began with our patented CH-O5 Cheetah® line of tire bead seaters and now continues with our Cheetah® Cannon tire bead seaters, and will continue with even newer innovations.”

Amermac Truers Update

To date 153 Amermac machines have been produced in Monticello, MN.

Here are some milestones and statistics on the Amermac Line:

Jan 2012 the Haas VF3YT was installed at the plant and was used to manufacture the adapters for the cabinet truers.

May 2013 the training DVD for the Amermac 405 Truer was finalized. The DVD has been a valuable tool for our customers. A marketing brochure for end users was also put in print highlighting the benefits of truing.

Did you know that truing has been increasing in demand? Our end users have told us the foreign tires and rims when paired together can create a more pronounced out of round scenario than domestic tires and rims. With the increased sales of foreign rims and tires people have been searching for solutions to create a smooth ride. Truing is the best way to alleviate the vibrations & shimmies caused by the tires and rims being out of round thus the increase in demand for truing.

In March of 2014 some changes were made on the Amermac Blades for truing, the blades angle was adjusted. This was designed to increase stone life by the blade being pre-sharpened. A new foot design was also developed for the Porta Truers.
Amermac has provided our company with some challenges and opportunities for growth. Congratulations to the entire team on the continued efforts to keep our customer’s happy and sales growing.
