Harbor Freight Pittsburgh Bead Breaker Review. This comes nicely shipped and packaged, very easy to assemble. However, the frame base is very flimsy. Would not break the bead on a 15" tire. Base frame and handle were bending. I reinforced the base with 1 1/2" angle iron and it made a huge difference. Popped the tire right off the rim. I recommend this product but there is no way around the fact that modifications will need to be made to make it a truly must have tool in the garage for the do it yourselfer.

I hit a piece of PVC pipe laying in the field I cross. It shattered and shredded this tire. The pieces of pipe were sharp as glass. Like broken clam shell. Did a number on the tire.

They got a lot of good reviews and I been itching to take a stab at it and save the extra 300 for the name on the sidewall. That bead breaker tool is going to save the family a lot of $$$. Next on the list is a balancer and tire stand but this wi do for now. It's a step up from the forklift demounting. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/laugh.gif
