How To Fix A Flat Tractor Tire

Having the skill and the knowledge on how to fix a flat tractor tire as well as how to change a tractor tire is a must for every tractor owner, especially if your regular livelihood income depends in a huge part on the performance of your tractor.

Having a flat tractor tire, especially when you least expect nor need it, can be downright frustrating. Plus, it entails additional hours of hard work on fixing or replacing it. This is not a good sight especially when there’s so much work that needs to be done.

Flat tires result from a decrease of air pressure inside the tire, which naturally occurs overtime. There are, however, instances when a flat tire occurs as a result of minor or extensive damage on the tire. It is important that a tractor owner knows how to handle both problems so that he can provide immediate management on the tire to prevent further damage.

Tractor tires tend to lose air faster since they are not filled to their full capacity. They are sometimes filled with fluid to increase their weight, thus leaving even lesser room for air. If not damaged, the tire can easily be fixed by refilling it using an air pump. This device is usually available in gas stations. If you’re dealing with more than one tractor, then it would be wiser to purchase your own air pump for your air refilling needs. Just keep in mind that you shouldn’t fill the tire with air if there is fluid in it as this could add too much weight on your tires which could eventually lead to further damage.

How to Fix a Flat Tractor TireIf the tire has been damaged, then you may have a more difficult problem in hand. If a hole or a tear is what caused the flat, then you will need to change the old tire with a new or previously restored one. Knowing how to change a damaged tire or having a skilled tire changer on hand will keep you from having to hire professional tire fixing service, thus saving you money. This task, however, is complex and dangerous given the larger-than-normal size of tractor tires. You or your tire changer should be cautious at every step of this procedure. You will have to disassemble them in parts, and in doing so you may need more than a pair of hand to help.

Never attempt to change a tire on your own. It is better to get trained on how to fix a flat tractor tire with one or all of your workers so that you will never be short of assistance in fixing a flat tire on your tractor.

Learning how to fix a flat tractor tire is seriously hard work, but it is hard work that will eventually be beneficial for you and/or your company. Purchasing new tires to replace your old ones can be expensive enough. Whether your tires need mere air refilling or are too damaged to be restored, having first-hand knowledge and skill on fixing flats will help lessen your expenses while increasing the time and efficiency you spend on more productive endeavors.
