Change a rear Tractor Tire on an old Ford 3000 Tractor. Tractor Tires are heavy and changing one can be a daunting task. – Ranch Hand Tips

Our Ford 3000 Tractor had a tire blow out while mowing hay with a New Holland Sickle Mower. This was not the first time that tire blew out so we had to replace the tire inner tube.

In this video we’ll take you through step by step removing the tire from the tractor and putting the new or repaired tire back on. We will use a breaker bar, 2 1/2 ton Hydraulic Jack, and a cinderblock.

00:00:00,359 --> 00:00:06,990
sometimes a hey guys just aren't in our

2
00:00:02,550 --> 00:00:09,330
favor so today I'm gonna spend my time

3
00:00:06,990 --> 00:00:11,790
showing you how we change a tractor tire

4
00:00:09,330 --> 00:00:19,859
first thing I'm going to do is make sure

5
00:00:11,790 --> 00:00:22,529
this thing is in gear that way it

6
00:00:19,859 --> 00:00:24,180
doesn't roll on us our jacks not going

7
00:00:22,529 --> 00:00:26,880
to be high enough to lift this whole

8
00:00:24,180 --> 00:00:29,640
thing up off the ground so I got a

9
00:00:26,880 --> 00:00:36,590
cinder block here I'm going to put on

10
00:00:29,640 --> 00:00:36,590
feet help give us some leverage

11
00:01:44,830 --> 00:01:51,950
now before I take the weight off this

12
00:01:47,179 --> 00:01:55,330
tire go ahead pop the sockets loose on

13
00:01:51,950 --> 00:01:55,330
it just like you would on a car tire

14
00:02:38,560 --> 00:02:59,420
now we got the psychics loose we can go

15
00:02:40,910 --> 00:03:03,280
ahead and raise this bad boy on up using

16
00:02:59,420 --> 00:03:03,280
a two and a half ton hydraulic jack

17
00:03:12,250 --> 00:03:16,360
finish taking these lug nuts off

18
00:03:33,180 --> 00:03:36,390
got high grass out here so I'm not going

19
00:03:35,250 --> 00:03:38,129
to throw them in the seat I'm going to

20
00:03:36,390 --> 00:03:40,849
set them on a bare spot the groundwork

21
00:03:38,129 --> 00:03:40,849
join them easily

22
00:03:57,349 --> 00:04:09,780
alright got the tire loose let's go

23
00:04:01,079 --> 00:04:20,720
ahead and pull this bad boy off track

24
00:04:09,780 --> 00:04:20,720
tires not light I'm waiting the tractor

25
00:04:46,220 --> 00:04:51,570
it's what I do is I hold the tire on

26
00:04:48,660 --> 00:04:54,200
down to a tire repair store we had to

27
00:04:51,570 --> 00:04:56,460
replace the inner tube on the inside

28
00:04:54,200 --> 00:05:01,230
did you like having to deal with it

29
00:04:56,460 --> 00:05:04,130
myself so let's get this bad boy back on

30
00:05:01,230 --> 00:05:04,130
there and get back in the business

31
00:05:25,389 --> 00:05:29,569
what I did because this tyre is so heavy

32
00:05:28,069 --> 00:05:32,300
and I can't lift it to get it on these

33
00:05:29,569 --> 00:05:37,659
prongs so I adjusted my jacks I kind of

34
00:05:32,300 --> 00:05:37,659
slid the tire back on to the wheel

35
00:05:43,160 --> 00:05:46,810
these bad boys back on

36
00:05:59,999 --> 00:06:21,199
I always tight down by going up sits the

37
00:06:13,469 --> 00:06:25,879
last one I did I'm just pulling these

38
00:06:21,199 --> 00:06:25,879
snug but I'm not tightening them yet

39
00:06:55,970 --> 00:07:03,860
and now we can let the tractor down try

40
00:06:59,730 --> 00:07:03,860
and do it as controlled as possible can

41
00:07:08,540 --> 00:07:22,920
move our Jack I've got the wheel all the

42
00:07:21,780 --> 00:07:29,160
way down the ground I'm going to go

43
00:07:22,920 --> 00:07:33,710
ahead and tighten these down and I'm

44
00:07:29,160 --> 00:07:33,710
going to go across each way

45
00:07:42,940 --> 00:07:46,290
nice and tight

46
00:08:03,570 --> 00:08:13,000
all right I don't want to hurt my

47
00:08:07,780 --> 00:08:18,699
implement before I move this thing come

48
00:08:13,000 --> 00:08:30,820
back here my cinder block that I used

49
00:08:18,699 --> 00:08:32,849
out of the way all right we're back in

50
00:08:30,820 --> 00:08:32,849
business

51
00:08:40,750 --> 00:08:42,810
