That video was more about tool fabrication than at tool that works well. I've used moparguy's board trick as well as Martin's jack trick in the past. Either take less time than dinking around with that fancy bead breaker from the video. If I had a tractor, I'd probably use Allen's idea as well.

I made one,i did not use plasma cutter just bandsaw and cutoff wheel for the bottom foot. The angle I used for the foot was 1/4", It bent using the tool. Re enforcing it now with another piece of 1/4". The rest of the tool is just a reese hitch. The finger or clamp is 3 pieces of 1/4 " welded together. I have tryed the bumper jack method, and a 12k pound tractor bucket and it would not brake the bead. That tool is powerful for the really stuck one like i have. I think the guy in video said thay cost about 1000 bucks for the big one. 100 bucks for the small one.

this is much better than driving my jeep onto the tire to break the bead!


Another quality post.
