Tractor Tire Bead Breaker
Our tractor tire bead breaker works great. It consists of three short chains and two jack-ails. The top of the jackalls are bolted together. A chain attaches to the bolt holding them together and wraps around the opposite side of the tire. A chain is then placed around the foot of each jack and around the tire. Then we put a little pressure on the jacks and hammer the foot of the jacks under the edge of the rim. We weld a 1-in. strip on the edge of the jacks which is against the rim. Jack each jack alternately and with the aid of a duck-billed hammer most tires will come off easily. (Len Digney, Box 53, Raymore, Sask. S0A 3J0)
