It mainly comes down to the bit used, and the motor. The Integy motor is too small, so it takes longer to make a deep cut, and the bits wear quicker than the carbide bits. However, other truers can use carbide bits from GQ and Hudy.

The Hudy will cut pretty deep into even the hardest foams without slowing much, then come back for the auto return to get the perfect surface cut.

I figured its most likely a once in a lifetime purchase, so I bought the Hudy Auto. IF I sell it, the Hudy retains its value much better than the cheaper ones as well.

I agree the Integy is well under powered. For the price of the GQ your better off getting the Hudy. I opted for the Ofna. Very strong motor, and it accepts a hudy bit. The only grip is with the Hudy bit the gauge dial is off by 2mm. I did some machining to my bit holder. Now it's as accurate as a Hudy. Out the box; nothing beats a HUDY. It's just a matter how deep your pockets are.

From what i have read on this forum it seems the Hudy's motor is far superior in performance. So i guess that is what makes for reliability as well. I was told these things are heavy!

We are using the GQ tire truer here at the shop, and we go through alot of tires.

In terms of power, they will go through 2MM without a drop in performance as long as your power supply has high amps to feed the truer. Look at a power supply in the range of 20 to 25amps.

The adjustment cutter knob is a bit of, so it needs calibration.

Hudy is Hudy there is nothing out there in that category but for the price i would get 2 GQ's.

I would prefer my 3racing which is cheap and good. So far No problem with it. Just change the blade to hudy and most of the problem solved.

The only option is a hudy if you ask me, nothing gets close in performance and quality. With the 3racing one you really need to run in your tire's. It doesn't give a perfect cut like the hudy one.
Plus the hudy will outlast everything else, and has a good resale value.

Maxmod, it will probably last longer than me. Buy the Hudy, everything else is made in China.

I HAVE THE OFNA MANUAL TIRE TRUER AND I WANTED TO KNOW IF THE HUDY CUTTING BIT WILL FIT ON IT

I THOUGHT THE OFNA ONE WORKED FINE TILL I USED ONE OF MY BUDDIES HUDY TIRE TRUER THE TIRE LOOKED WAY MORE SMOOTH AFTER THE CUT ON THE HUDY AND YOU GUYS ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE ON THE MOTOR

Yes, the HUDY carbide cutter fits the OFNA truer without a problem.

Do you stock the (new)Ofna truer with the square blade holder ( the scale is more designed like the hudy)
