Does The TireGrabber make my farm a safer place to work?

Absolutely! The TireGrabber isn’t just a time saver, it also makes it possible for 1 person to safely and quickly move a large-scale tire, a job that would otherwise require 3-4 workers and pose a significant liability risk. Changing a tire using a forklift or pallet forks can be very dangerous. The TireGrabber’s 3-arm configuration ensures a safe grip on your large-scale tires, regardless of the weather. Additionally, The TireGrabber does all the heavy lifting for you–literally–reducing stress on your back and the rest of your body.

 

What makes The TireGrabber different?

There are many things that set The TireGrabber apart from other large tire handlers on the market. Here are a few of our favorite differentiators: 

  1. The 3-point design ensures safe handling. The arms sit at the 4, 8 & 12-o’clock positions on the tire, cradling it and making it easy to move in virtually any direction necessary.
  2. All 3 arms are connected in the back and move as one unit, keeping the tire centered and perfectly balanced over the pivot point, vastly reducing the risk of injury when compared to other methods of moving large-scale tires where you have to worry about the tire shifting or becoming off balance. 
  3. The upright pivot allows you to swing the tire sideways, making it easier and faster to get the tire lined up with the hub.
  4. The vertical pivot allows you to pick up the tire from virtually any position, from laying on it’s side to standing straight up, and makes stacking tires in trailers or on the ground a cinch!

 

Why should I invest in The TireGrabber? What are the biggest benefits to having this piece of equipment?

We have many happy customers who can confirm, The TireGrabber is the safest and easiest way to handle large-scale tires. It reduces physical stress on your workers, makes changing tires fast and effortless, allows you to rotate tires as needed and easily line up with the hub, and increases workplace safety by reducing the risk of accidents.
