New addition to DIY tire-handling solution grabs top Farm Safety honour at Manitoba Ag Days



FERINTOSH, ALBERTA – January 5, 2021: The TireGrabber, a highly popular device that helps farmers safely change large-scale tires on their own, has just been adapted to fit a wider range of tire sizes in response to customer demand. The new release – The TireGrabber Reversible – has won First Place for Farm Safety at this year’s Manitoba Ag Days Innovation Showcase.

Darcy Goossen, the Alberta farmer who invented The TireGrabber for changing and handling tires up to 95” in diameter, has created a new version that fits a greater variety of needs. “Many of our customers have machinery that have different tire sizes, so they have been asking for more flexibility,” he says. “This led me to come up with The TireGrabber Reversible that handles 34”–89” tires just as safely and efficiently.”

Goossen points out that both The TireGrabber and the Reversible attach easily to any hydraulic system and are robust, user-friendly workhorses for farmers and other machine operators who want to save the time and expense of sending machinery out for tire swaps – or bringing technicians in. “They’re just as great off the farm, too – in sectors like construction, mining and aviation.”

The original invention came out of Goossen’s personal desire to make it easier and safer for him and his employees to change and handle their own large-scale tires on-farm. The process took five years of research, development and testing that has led to a product line that simplifies the tasks involved in changing, rotating and replacing tires.

As the winner of this year’s Farm Safety Category, The TireGrabber Reversible is eligible to become the Grand Prize Innovation Showcase Champion and the Farmer’s Choice Grand Prize Champion. Customers are welcome to participate in the Innovation Showcase SHOWDOWN on January 14, 2021 at 9 a.m. via Zoom Webinar. The seven finalists will answer questions from the judges and participants.
