    Could it be a bead breaker for large tires?

    You got it Eric......

    Looked on-line years ago and they wanted around 300 bux for one of those things, Went over to my scrap pile and picked out the pipe and a old worn (flat bar) chain guide off our trencher, Then grabbed a busted shank asphalt chisel from our jackhammer. In half hour I was set to go, Breaks anything from those PITA 4" tires to 16" 8 ply trailer tires.....

    RestoRob, you should patent your designs.
    You, Slapper and many others should be commended for your fabrication efforts.

    Too much trouble Eric..... I've been around my penny pinch'n boss too long, If I see something I like/want at a stupid price I build my own.

    I seen one of these on the tool truck 10 yrs ago; http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/item...roup_ID=682026&store=snapon-store&dir=catalog

    I threw one together with scrap 2x4 tubing and popped a old lawn tractor seat on it, Total cost..... 1 hr time and 20 bux for the casters......

    I think the bead breaker has already been done. I was as using one of these 30 years ago.
