The clamp on dual topic reminds me of a story lately in my neck of the woods. Local tire shop lost an employee within the last couple of months. This man did farm calls for his living for years. Very sharp guy they say. I never met him. He was at another guy I do knows place mounting a tire. Not positive if he was putting duals on or off, but he somehow got on the wrong end of the tire and lost his footing. The owner came home and found him under the tire dead. I had heard his service truck with a crane was on site but he wasnt using it. I'm going off second hand information here, but bottom line a good man lost his life over a darn tire too young. So please guys when swapping duals out wait for a hand, use a crane or skidsteer, check your surroundings before you yank it off the hub. Please be careful.
