Laura Ford in Sullivan, MO uses Hunter’s AutoComp Elite® On-Car Brake Lathe to help service a wide variety of vehicles at their dealership. They’ve tried other on-car lathes in the past, but chose the ACE Lathe for easier setup, faster automatic compensation, faster cutting, and its superior surface finish.

Cut down your time to service rotors

Provide a smooth, precise brake finish directly on the vehicle. Hunter’s AutoComp Elite® on-car brake lathe is a cut above the rest.

Optional Anti-Chatter Technology

Smooth finish with Anti-Chatter Technology

Anti-Chatter Technology changes the spindle speed to keep chatter-inducing vibration from starting

Eliminate the need for silencer bands

No hazardous bands, clips or silencer belts needed to control vibration

Eliminate virtually all buildup of vibration to stop chatter before it starts!

Other Lathes


Chatter can start when machining rotors at a fixed speed. The same way a moistened finger can make a crystal glass sing. By the time the technician hears the rotor singing, it is already too late; the surface has been ruined.


ACT Anti-Chatter Technology

Oscillating speed

ACT varies the spinning speed to keep chatter inducing vibration from starting. This results in a smoother surface finish.


Work in a more efficient space with easy access to tools & adaptors

Protect air quality with the ability to view the work piece during machining.
