One my tyre fitted does, if a new tyre isn't sealing onto the rim he puts a ratchet strap all the way around it , which squishes it into the rim..
But it will bite you when you take it off It's the only way though, if a bead buster fails.

Your man was obviously well trained thats why he may never have heard of the method. Now he does it all the time he has slid well down the ladder.

Though I have to admit I have used the method ......
And don't let me catch you flogging a ring spanner with a lump hammer, either.....

At least, not one of mine.

We use one of our big copressors .... a 350cfm one ! A flatened out fabrcated fitting fitted to the hose, one quick burst of air with the fitting against the bead and up she goes...Like a cheeta. Last four tyres i fitted wouldn't work with the strap method.

Not really machinery related but handy on sites, use 4" sewer rubbers over your wellies to hold oilskins tight to wellies helps stop stuff going up in between the two,

Could probably start a new thread on 101 uses for sewer rubbers.

1) They make great makeshift bungie cords.
If one don't stretch, loop a number together to get the required length.

2) Also useful as a temporary drive belt when a "V" belt lets go

Is it any wonder there are so many displaced / leaking joints in plastic sewer pipes

If your having to fill your machine with fuel cans and machine is like the hitachis and have non return fittings on fuel pump and won't fit into cans a 32 mm water fitting goes straight over the valve connected to a length of pipe straight into can, or a 32 to 25 if using jerry cans
