Slick Way To Fix Flats On Livestock Trailers
If you own a livestock trailer with rubber torsion axles, you'll be interested in Trailer-Aid, a slick way to change flat tires without a jack, and without having to remove the livestock being hauled.
Trailer-Aid is a wedge 6 in. wide and 24 in. long. To change a flat tire, you simply drive the good tire onto the Trailer-Aid. This will lift the flat tire off the ground (middle photo). Next step is to remove the flat tire and put on the spare (bottom photo).
The Trailer-Aid wedge, rated at 6-ton capacity, is made of high-strength polymer. It has built-in traction treads to help provide sure gripping in the worst of conditions.
In addition to changing flats, Trailer-Aid can be used as a safety chock when the trailer is parked. It's also handy for raising rear wheels when performing routine maintenance on brakes, wheels and axles. With two units you can park your livestock trailer with all tires off the ground to help prevent cracking and rotting.
Sells for $45, plus $4.74 for shipping. Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Blue-grass Featherlite, Route 2, Box 156, Campbellsburg, Kty. 40011 (ph 502 532-6189).
