They say “Necessity is the mother of invention” and that is exactly what prompted Owner/Inventor Darcy Goossen to design his first invention, The TireGrabber TG3300.
Growing up on the farm Darcy came to the realization that with tires and equipment getting larger and larger, safety was becoming a real concern. Especially when it came to changing out large sprayer tires. That was where the seed for The TireGrabber was planted.
Over the course of several years Darcy built several prototypes, each time tweaking a bit here and improving a lot there until finally he produced a unit that he felt was ready for use. When he began using it he was pleased to find out it was doing exactly what he had originally intended it to do, make changing large scale tires safer, faster and more efficient. What Darcy didn’t plan on was the response he got from friends, family and neighbors. They all felt he was on to something and that something needed to be in the market, thus The TireGrabber Ltd. was born…
Since that time Darcy has designed several different models, as well as the TG Equipment Jack, attended multiple trade shows, won the Farmyard Inventions Award at Canada’s Farm Progress Show in Regina, SK in 2018, as well as 1st Place in Farm Safety two years in a row, at the 2020 & 2021 Innovations Showcase at Manitoba AG Days in Brandon, MB.
