Ken-Tool HD Bead Breaker
For changing tractor tires, implement tires, ATV tires, passenger and light truck tires.
Bead breaker loosens beads with bead-breaking foot and ram bar, but never cuts the bead of the tire. The wedge foot is forced between the bead and rim flange. Breaker is designed for shop or road use. No other bead breaking tools are necessary.
T26B has exclusive spring action design to reduce user fatigue associated with slide hammer kickback (see photo).
Made in the USA
If you plan to use this bead breaker on tractor tires that are still attached to the tractor, it will help if you are a big, strong guy. I was not strong enough to hold it in place against the tractor tire's sidewall while using the slide hammer. It just bounced back, slid off the bead, and fell to the ground. I had to weld up a 12 x 20" C-clamp in the form of a bead breaker. Once I used my giant C-clamp to put pressure on the bead and sidewall, the 35926 Ken-Tool Bead Breaker worked very well to break the outer bead and the inner bead. I have watched an experienced 300 lb tire man use this tool to easily break the outer and inner beads, but at 190 lbs, I am not strong enough to do it without help on a mounted tractor tire.
