Harbor Freight

When bought a Harbor Freight tire changer, I had enough residual sense to know that the thing was going to take up space when I wasn't using it, and I have a shortage of workshop space. Today, working on a snowmobile and looking for more bench space in my little shop of horrors (you can never have enough work surfaces) I put the loading ramp from my bike lift on the tire changer. Hey, that works!

Just don't drop it on your toes. Those ramps are heavy!

Re: Harbor Freight

I have one of those tire changers. I use if more for breaking the tire bead than anything else. I've dismounted trailer tires on it but I guess I'd still rather change a motorcycle tire with tire irons - big ones.
