This is put together from scrap but works very well.The down side is to break the bead you have to kneel on the ground.If I did it again I would look for a smaller center hub.I tighten one bolt on the hub and drop a pin in so the tire can't spin.With the tubbing slipped over the tire wrench I can just spin the bead off any tire.The reason I built it was I couldn't get the front tires off of the bead.With this system it takes 20 min. to take tire off patch tube and replace.I was getting 1 flat a day for a while and at $25 in town I had to do something.

I still want to mount a air or hyd. cylynder where the hyd, jack is,but that has time.

Whose is your helper with the horns? Nice looking animal. Get him to stand on those tire beads to break them down. Hal

Now, I know it works, but how do you prevent the base from spinning on the ground? A stubborn tire like that one would take some reefing (torque) to rip off that rim. Maybe I'm not seeing a concrete pad or something.....
I am contemplating on building one myself. I already have a bead breaker.

that is the hub and axle out of a 1600 cockshutt and only mud and 2 small rods in the ground keep it from turning.I'v dun about a hundred tires and it has never moved yet.I beleive that axle and hub weigh in around 400+lbs.


Ya my bull likes to get in close somtimes.He turned a year in june, purebred jersey should make some nice replacment, hand milk cows, crossed with red angus and some holsteins.

Nice tire machine.

Around here there's a saying:
"Meaner than a Jersey bull"

That one don't look too mean.

ron, i figgured it out. the bent angle iron is bolted to the base of the changer and the cow is stepping on the other end to keep it from spinning!!!

Why for did some one bend that vice in the back ground?? I have a vice just like it in my shop that I got from my grand father many years ago and it sits on my welding table.
I have thought about making something like you have but always have that round to it problem. I even have the bar that is made to pull the tire off and put it back one from a tire changer of decades ago

yep that's exactly what happened.The ground in front of that step van goes down hill pretty fast and one day the front sliped off the blocks so I pulled it back whith my tractor.That vice is welded onto the bumper.Thats a poor mans shop.Not realy big enough to work in but holds some of my tools at least.If all goes well this fall next spring I hope to be building a 14x40 shop onto the side of the barn.

Poor mans shop you should see my shop. It is built from all salvage stuff other then the 1/4 inch bolts that hold the roof metal on. I have less then $300 in the whole shop but it is big enough to do all I ever need to do on a truck/car/tractor and when I say truck I mean 10 wheeler
