Day 195/365: Imagine Changing This Flat Tire?

I have never seen a John Deere sprayer with a flat tire, so when I drove by it just called for me to stop. Each tire is over five feet tall and designed to travel between the corn and soybean rows without damaging the plants. These sprayers cost close to $200,000 and the tires several thousands of dollars.

Changing a flat tire in the field is no easy feat as you can see. The corner must be braced to keep the rig level. It’s a job I wouldn’t want. I’ve changed plenty of car tires in the past twenty years, but this is one I’d leave to the experts.
