Large-Tire Handler
Left pic of yellow skid steer with black attachment on front that has 2 arms left & 2 right holding a large tire in their grasp. Rt pic showing same thing but from back of tire showing more of arm attachment.

Designed as a skid steer attachment, this Large-Tire Handler (called the Tire Wrangler) is designed to take the heavy labor out of changing, repairing, or otherwise handling the tires of big farm equipment. The tire handler has its own control panel and connects to the skid steer hydraulics to help remove, install, rotate, invert, lay down, pick up, or stack tires/wheels. Additionally, its head is designed to rotate sufficiently to clear fenders (eliminating the need to remove them) and to assist in alignment of studs.
