One-Man Dual Wheel Changer
This new "EZ Dual Changer" makes it easy for one man to change even the biggest dual wheel on tractors and combines. The EZ Dual Changer was voted the winner of the 2008 Iowa Farmers Inventors Challenge contest.
  Made from high tensile reinforced steel, the EZ Dual Changer is a scissors clamp that hangs from a chain hoist on a front end loader, forklift, or service truck boom. The tire is held securely in place and rotates easily on four 5-in. diameter hard rubber wheels, two on each side, that make it easy to line up the lug nuts.
Model 51, the most popular model, can handle all 20.8-in., 18.4-in., and 14.9-in. tires (metric sizes up to 520). It has a weight capacity of 2,000 pounds, so it can lift a 1,000 pound weight plus the dual, a tire filled with fluid, or cast iron centers. There are other models available for larger tires such as an 800 metric. Model 51 sells for $330 plus S&H.
