 Tire mounting removal

The local Kubota dealer has a nifty 'tire dolly' to remove/mount tires on a tractor. Does anyone know if these dollies are available and affordable? What about making a dolly myself? Safety when working with these heavy filled rear tires is a must.

Richard, Northern Tool (previously Northern Hydraulics) sells a truck tire dolly that may work for you. Hopefully the link below will work. If not, I'll post another message with the info. Jeff

 Tire mounting removal

Most areas are served by a mobile ag tire repair business. I haven't needed tire work, but people who use such services usually are pretty positive. It's incredibly convenient to sit back and let somebody with good equipment make a repair without even having to move the tractor most times. It's a pretty good idea to find out who does such work in your area and get a price for comparison to doing it yourself. Using such a service also avoids having to keep a bunch of specialized stuff around that, hopefully, isn't going to be used much.

 Tire mounting removal

As I was inflating the somewhat old tires on my flatbed trailer up to 70psi the other day, I was thinking about the steel cages that many truck tire places use when inflating truck tires. Just how catastrophic a failure can occur when an 8 ply tire lets go at 70psi? I have had three tread separations on tires on my vehicles, but can't recall ever having a real blowout of the side wall.

Catastrophic tire failure? That size tire at that pressure? Think "hand grenade" or "land mine". Tread separation from the carcass is probably the most benign failure.

The truck tire places have those cages to protect their employees lives.

 Tire mounting removal

Tire cages were built for the old 2 piece "split rims" which had a a tendency to come apart at pressure. Imagine a 20" 3# steel ring flying thru the air as if shot from a cannon. I have seen 8X8 hard wood posts cut almost in two by them. In Viet Nam I saw what was left of a Pappa San tire repair man. He was cut in 3 pieces. Many tire guys have been maimed and killed by them. Modern truck tires do not require the cage. A catastrophic failure of a tire in the application you describe is gonna require a "GOOD" Got it? "GOOD set of ear plugs! Hopefully you have a air regulator for correct pressure and a clip on and leave it air chuck. With that thought where would your arm be in a tire cage with either type of tire????
