- The BeadBuster XB-554 HD PROFESSIONAL bead breaker is our newest product release (June 2020) and is the Professional Grade version of the XB-550 HD. It has all of the features and benefits of the XB-550, with a couple key upgrades that makes it an ultra-durable and stronger tool that will handle the most difficult large tire applications, and day-in-day-out commercial use. Specifically all of the wear points use Hardened Alloy Steel. The hardest working element: the female ram threads utilize a hardened 4140 alloy steel thread insert that can be replaced if it ever wears out. Also the top of the ram foot, ie. the ‘ram pad’ is also upgraded to 4140 steel. Along with Grade 8 bolts all around, and an extended 3-year warranty, the XB-554 HD PRO has addressed the limitations of the XB-550 when used on the most extreme applications like Skid Loaders and production environments like Mobile Tire Repair Service.
- All of the 45x series tools have the same design geometry, but the 55x series tools is larger in every way. Heavier steel, thicker walls, more extension; the XB-55x series bead breakers are designed to handle the BIG tires that you’ll find on agricultural and industrial OTR wheels, large trucks, military vehicles, etc. However, we created a patented configurable ram foot that can accommodate a large range of rim lip sizes, and it will still work on ATV/UTV*. There are 4 different foot length configurations, so that you can get the feet as close to the Bead Seat as possible without touching the Bead Retainer, but still get good purchase on top of the Bead Bundle. It’s still far more portable than any other OTR bead breaker, and much less expensive. If you are a farmer, business owner, or a large vehicle enthusiast; you can use this pneumatic tire bead breaker to easily change your own tires whenever, and wherever you want. All of our tractor tire bead breakers come with FREE Shipping. (USA only, reduced price Int’l shipping)
- A 15/16″ wrench is required to drive the clamp and ram bolts. Hand wrenches will work, power tools are recommended. You can use an impact wrench, but use caution with a 1/2″ pneumatic impact to not over-torque the bolts. A 3/8″ or 1/2″ cordless impact wrench is ideal.
- Tire Spoons are required to finish the job of removing the tire from the rim. Very large tires (>48″ dia.) may require even larger tire irons.
- The XB-554 PRO will NOT work on 7″-8″ ATV wheels. It will work on 9″ or larger ATV wheels
- Certain cast aluminum and alloy passenger vehicle rims have a profile that prevents the tool from clamping properly (see illustration). See the specifications above; if in doubt, measure your rims and compare to the tool’s spec. limits.
