New On-Farm Tractor Tire Bead Breaker
A new tractor tire bead breaker invented by Joe Edwards, and son Danny, farmers in Rocky Mount, N.C., clamps to the rim of the tractor wheel.
A "push arm" fits up tight against the bead and sidewall of the tire and is tightened in by a nut welded to its opposite end. On most tractor tires, just one break is enough to loosen the entire tire.
"You can use it in the field or the shop. There's no need to remove the wheel from the machine," says Danny. "Many farmers have equipment to handle front tractor tires and pickup tires but there's never been a good way to change rear tractor tires by yourself."
The bead breaker also works on some large truck tires but will have to be used in more than one spot on the rim. A larger bead breaker, equipped with two push arms, is available for the biggest tractor tires and tires on large construction equipment.
The bead breaker sells for $69.95 plus shipping.
