I guess I am a certified Tractor addict as I was tickled pink with my Christmas present, and couldn't wait to try it. https://www.youtube....eature=youtu.be

When I get the air ratchet out I should have all the tires I have separated from the rims. :thumbs:

Thanks, I had already looked it up, and I'm sure I'll get one fairly soon.  It'll even work on my large farm tractors, so VERY useful to me!

Had a similar tool in the military. Very heavy duty fornbig tires. Was an air over hydraulic system for pressing, but worked exactly the same way. Should work nicely. Never saw one like this for smaller applications. Let us know how it does!

Thanks! So far it has worked on three tires that I couldn't break before. Gtractor, it says not to use impact but air ratchet is ok. HankG, Yes I will use padding on a painted rim, should work fine for those also.

They don't want to warranty the gears if the impact strips them out.  Makes sense but I wouldn't run it wide open..

I use my Dewalt drill to start small engines that have sat for years because I can't pull a rope very many times. The impact won't turn an engine over the compression stroke like the drill will.

I have a couple similar devices that my Millwright buddy made, a copy, that I never tried. He was selling them at swaps, but hard to sell for bigger money when home-made. He made couple changes from orig design he had. I'll probly never use them.

I made an adapter that fits my drill for starting small engines also. Sure beats pulling the rope.

This was how I was trying to break the beads and failed more than success.
