A pneumatic tyre bead breaker designed specifically for agricultural tyres could significantly speed up tyre changes, according its manufacturer.

The GTABB-01 from American firm Gaither is a one-piece, air-powered tool, which can dislodge tyre beads without the need for additional leavers.

The unit is 380 mm long, weighs 4.6 kg and requires a compressor with a minimum of 6 bar pressure.
