Heavy Tarp Made From Tractor Tire Inner Tube
“I recently bought a new inner tube for one of the rear tires on my tractor. Unfortunately, the tube turned out to be defective. Our local tire shop wouldn’t replace it, so I converted it into a heavy duty ‘poor man’s’ tarp. It’s waterproof and doesn’t blow in the wind like a conventional tarp does,” says Gary Swensen, Yankton, S. Dak.
He recently sent FARM SHOW photos of the tarp protecting some cargo he hauled in his pickup while making a trip to Indiana. He placed a couple of chains and heavy cables on the tarp to hold it down.
“It’s waterproof and doesn’t fly all over like most tarps do,” says Swensen.
