One-Man Wheel Changer Handles Big Flotation Tires
One person can safely change big flotation tires on tractors and self-propelled sprayers with this new, heavy-duty tire changer from Sheyenne Tooling and Mfg., Cooperstown, N. Dak.
  The Wheel EZ tire changer rides on 4 caster wheels and comes with a pair of welded-on metal tubes, allowing pallet forks to pick it up. Its built with 2 telescoping halves fitted on each side with 3 big metal rollers that support the tire. An impact wrench and a built-in lead screw are used to lift the tire. Turning the screws threaded rod brings the telescoping halves together, causing the rollers to lift the wheel.
  Pry posts on either side of the jack can be used to rotate the wheel in either direction. A 4-ft. tall, T-shaped metal mast serves as a back support for the tire, while a pair of safety chains that wrap around the tire prevent outward tipping.
  It lets you safely lift the tire and then roll it away from the machine, without needing anyone to help steady the tire, says Bart Taylor of Get It To The Bin, Inc., which is a dealership for Sheyenne Tooling & Mfg. of Oakland, Ill. Its designed to handle tires with a wheel rim diameter of 38 in. to 54 inches. You line up the holes left or right by using the caster wheels and up or down by operating the lead screw.
  The Wheel EZ weighs 633 lbs. If youre on a concrete floor you can roll the entire tire changer by hand. On a rough surface you can use the pallet forks to pick it up, says Taylor. A handy metal bin about halfway up the mast can be used to store the chains, as well as wrench chucks and lug nuts.
  The Wheel EZ sells for $2,550 plus S&H.
