Specifically all of the wear points use Hardened Alloy Steel. The hardest working element: the female ram threads utilize a hardened 4140 alloy steel thread insert that can be replaced if it ever wears out. Also the top of the ram foot, ie. The ram pad is also upgraded to 4140 steel.
Heavy OTR (Off The Road) Tires. Heavy, Highly Modified Trucks (Monster Trucks).It does not require floor mounting and can be operated with hand tools, it is small and light enough to take on the trail for emergency tire changes. The BeadBuster applies a reaction force directly against the lip of the rim and wont bend lightweight aluminum rims from high compressive forces. It has a padded clamp and will NOT SCRATCH your rims. The BeadBuster is ruggedly designed, built entirely from steel with solid welds, uses Grade-5 zinc-plated screws, and is proudly MADE IN USA!
The XB-554 HD-PRO is a much better value. Alternative to a Hydraulic Bead Breaker. Other large bead breakers require hammering the tool to get the feet in the bead, but not the XB-554 HD-PRO! Its patented design uses leverage of the clamp arm, and is very easy to use. Best of all the PRO tool is reinforced with chrome-moly 4140 steel and has replaceable thread inserts so that if something wears out in a commercial application, it can easily be replaced for low cost.
The BeadBuster is a tried and true design that does the job right. Size: 10 x 9 x 3. Max Rim Lip Depth Range (foot length): 0.585 to 1.50. Max Rim Lip Width (clamp opening): 2.70. Max Rim Lip Thickness: 1.75.
Max Ram Extension (throw): 2.756. A 15/16 wrench is required to drive the clamp and ram bolts.
Hand wrenches will work, power tools are recommended. You can use an impact wrench, but use caution with a 1/2 pneumatic impact to not over-torque the bolts. A 3/8 or 1/2 cordless impact wrench is ideal. Tire Irons are required to finish the job of removing the tire from the rim.
Very large tires >48 dia. May require even larger tire irons. The XB-554 PRO will NOT work on 7-8 ATV wheels.It will work on 9 or larger ATV wheels. Certain cast aluminum and alloy passenger vehicle rims have a profile that prevents the tool from clamping properly. See the specifications above; if in doubt, measure your rims and compare to the tools spec. Select Padded Flat Rate Envelope at checkout.
