Front end loader dual changer
"I built it for my own use and it worked so much better than anything on the market, I decided to sell them," says Alan Pegram, Lincoln, Ill., about his E-Z Mount dual changer that hangs by chain from a front-end loader.
Consists of a tube steel frame fitted with roller brackets that fit inside the wheel rim, allowing the wheel to spin freely while it hangs from a front end loader. Makes it easy to line up bolt holes for mounting. "Lets one man change wheels by himself with no need for jacks," says Pegram.
You just drive the inner tractor wheel up on a wood block to get the dual off the ground. E-Z Mount hangs from the lip of a bucket. Roller brackets on the unit adjust without tools to fit both axle hub duals and clamp-on duals. "One manufacturer makes a similar roller-type dual changer but it only handles axle mount duals. This will adapt to any type dual," says Pegram.
Load capacity is 1,000 lbs. Sells for $289. Pegram sells the dual changer direct and has also contracted with Ficklin Ma-chine Co.
