Default New Product from ExperimentalAero The TBBT-2

ExperimentalAero is proud to introduce its latest tool Tire Bead Breaking Tool (TBBT-2) Designed for the Homebuilt Aircraft, and GA owners. No more struggling with clamps, vices, mallets to break the bead. No more finding an A&P with the traditional breaking tool to use and working on the floor putting all your weight into the handle to break the bead. Why break your back to break the bead, now you have a new option.

The TBBT-2 unique design leverages the power of the mechanical advantage of the clamp technology used in the ExperimentalAero’s Deep Reach Dimpling Tool (DRDT-2) and makes breaking your tire bead even easier. The TBBT-2 is an affordable option for the aircraft owner and significantly less expensive then the competitions comparable tools.

For those DRDT-2 owners who are now flying but keeping the DRDT-2 for future use the TBBT-2 is even more affordable. By purchasing the TBBT-2 frame only, the DRDT-2 owner can transplant the clamp assembly to the TBBT-2 frame.

Introductory pricing
$115 TBBT-2 frame only (Current DRDT-2 owners) plus shipping
$170 TBBT-2 Complete unit plus shipping

Shipping in the CONUS is approximately $20

I am excepting pre-orders (no payment required now). Estimated availability in 4-6 weeks. Just email me sales@experimentalaero.com to let me know you are interested and I will put you on the pre-order list.

Please visit the ExperimentalAero website for more details. http://www.experimentalaero.com/prod...-2/TBBT-2.html

Default I love it

Got my tool a while back and had it all ready to go for my condition inspection.
I needed new brake rotors and to swap tires around to even out the wear. Now Ive done tires numerous times over the 15 years Ive been flying and maintaining my 8.

I LOVE THE BEAD BREAKER!

A couple easy pulls on the handle while rotating the wheel and its loose. No jumping up and down, beating, cussing, falling down

Money well spent for me.
