I have to pop the bead on one tire and clean it as its leaking air all the way around it. I've seen what happens when a hose blows on the boom of a excavator. Definitely don't want to be under one!

Braking the bead down is easy Billy since they're usually a half size, let the air out and it'll probably unseal on it's own.
Might need to place a ratchet strap around the outside to get it to seal back up. :wink:



Thanks Yogie

I was wondering how hard it was going to break the bead. I've never seen a 1/2 bead before but I was looking at and thought there wasn't much bead there. And was thinking that it might be super tight since there was less. Glad to hear its not so.

Cowboy I like that, and that is about the best price I've seen for new equipment, would you have a link to where you picked that piece up at? Thanks

I've pretty much made my mind up on the double cylinder econo Billy ,just haven't decided on the 66" or the 72" probably be the 72" due to my bucket being that size and it gives me 2"s on the outside of my front wheels. Make sense or does it matter for that attachment?

Michael I'm not sure if it makes much difference on a grapple bucket. But I got the 66" but that is two inches wider than my tires too. But it does make sense that you would want to clear the width of your tire track.
