“Shooter” Picks Up, Unloads Tires Fast
Workers at Wingert Sales and Service in Plainview, Minn., sell a lot of tires. To make handling them easier, they came up with a boom that fits on a skidsteer or payloader. When farmers who use tire sidewalls to cover silage piles saw it, they wanted one. So Wingert began manufacturing the Side Wall Tire Shooter.
  “For anybody who handles a lot of tires or side walls it’s a handy thing to have,” says Paul Wingert, owner of the business.
  The 16-ft. steel boom has a track and chain to move the tires on and off. The unit quick-taches to skidsteers. The boom raises up to a 20-degree angle and shoots tires off 10 ft. from the end of the boom.
  That makes it handy for putting tires on silage piles and bunkers and loading and unloading tires on trucks and trailers.
  The tire shooter requires a skidsteer with at least an 1,800-lb. lift capacity. Bigger equipment can handle up to 50 tire sidewalls at a time.
  “It stacks them in a nice neat row,” Wingert says. “Some customers buy it just to pick up tractor tires and move them around.”
  Wingert sells the tire shooter for $3,200.
