Truck Tire Bead Breaker Eliminates Lifting

ESCO announces the introduction of its new pneumatic truck tire bead breaker that breaks both tough to break truck tire beads at the same time.

The Model 20425 eliminates the need to lift and turn the 200 lb. heavy truck tire/wheel assembly over to break the second bead.. Now the tire technician simply rolls the tire/wheel assembly into the bead breaker and breaks both beads at the same time in seconds.

The Model 20425 is powered by standard shop or tire service truck air at 100psi to develop a bead breaking force of over 5,000 lbs. The unit will handle all truck tire/wheel sizes 19.5” through 24.5” including all super singles and X-One type wide base tire/wheels.

With a shop floor footprint of only 28” x 32” operating space is not a problem. Due to its small footprint the Model 20425 can also be installed on the power lift gates of all tire service trucks.

The bead breaker also helps tire dealers to comply with the OSHA regulations that forbid the striking of the tire wheel assembly with steel duck bill tire hammers. In addition, the Model 20425 helps reduce the Workers Compensation claims for back strain from lifting heavy objects.
