I have a used Coats tire changing machine model 40-40A.
It is weathered and worn looking but does work. It only needs an air supply to function.
This will need to be picked up at my house. I will NOT ship, I will not deliver. It takes a forklift or engine hoist to load. I have an engine hoist here to help you load it up
Well.....I got it for $50 from a friend but am willing to give it away FREE.
If you're the type that feels obliged to give something, I'd gladly take 6 Jimboy's tacos in trade.
This machine is at my home in Granite Bay, CA.


FIRST to commit to this gets it!

YOU are exempt from any taco obligation....FEW guys are as helpful as you have been.
Alright all this taco talk is making me hungry and I love tacos! How much to ship tacos from your taco joint!
Will you accept bearded clam from east coast for payment?:drinks:
i had 2 of these,i just sold the twin to that 1 for 250 bucks.
they were great for being able to leave them out in the weather/outside use.
they work great and ive been able to mount/dismount all the way up to 17-s.
just some thoughts in case someones wondering about reliability.
I bet I'm not the only one who learned how to change tires on that exact model, many
moons ago eh?
Tell ya what, I'll reimburse your $50 if you offer free shipping! :)
So for literally decades I wanted my own tire machine. Then about 20 years ago I went to an auction and bought a 1010 for $200. Then 6 months later I went to another auction and bought 2 4040s for about $150! So now I dismount and mount my own tires and I only need to get a balancer now.
Ha, ha: I learned on a 10 10 back when it was modern. Wild, can I borrow it for my winter changeover?
FWIW I learned on a 20-20, I've used 10-10's & 40-40's... Plus the more modern turntable style changers...
I have a 10-10. I'm keeping that one because it is smaller and simpler.
