Affordable Tire Changer
Ideen adds that, "many farmers and ranchers have been asking for a low-priced tire changer. Most farmers and ranchers can't justify owning the pneumatic models, which require a large air system to operate, or those operated hydraulically or electrically."
The manually-operated Wikco Model 100 requires neither air nor electricity. It works on almost any car or light truck tires, tractor fronts and similar size tires up to an 11L by 15 flotation tire. It can be used to break beads, demount and mount tires.
The changer comes complete with bead breaker arm, a manual pry bar for demounting, and a mounting tool to roll the bead back onto the rim. The changer can be used in the shop, or taken to the field for on-site tire repairs.
