I also think deep down inside there's a dairy farmer in you trying to get out. Fixing your own punctures is your subconcious trying to get a little bit of the hardship you crave deep inside :flappytounge:
Way off the mark there IMO….








The dairy farmer in him would have driven it flat to the local tyre fitters and expected them to pull it off and put a patch on it, it would take half an hour with a wire wheel on a grinder to remove the 3” layer of cow shite off the outside to find the edge of the rim to break it down 😂😂

Very true on last paragraph.

Tyre crowd between Roscrea and Birr stopped agri sales and repairs , due to muck etc.

At €80, it cant be the most profitable of ventures really
One hour from leaving last job to mending digger back tyre on site, one large patch required, no gaiter needed. €80 inc vat. Had to get a different crowd before as the regular guy was 40 miles away on a breakdown and as I was baling hay for another lad I had to get someone quickly. Front tyre mended on tractor and gaiter needed, €120 inc vat.

Have you not enough other things to do?
Today I was going along the road between mowing jobs and heard air coming out of the tyre every rotation.
Rang my tyre man and he landed into the yard I was heading to.
Fixed it and I was back going in 20 minutes after arriving.
Not a hope would it pay me to do it myself id have lost money.
By the time I'd someone else pulled away from another job tools gathered up the van loaded break down the tyre fix the problem put the tyre back on pump it up is safely say id have 25/30 acres mowed.
I'd be some ape to go doing that myself
It’s how I made my millions.😂

You have reminded me of an incident back when we were hauling beet, had to get a truck puncture mended and while at the tyre place a farmer came in on a 135 with shitty wheels, got the airline and pumped one of the rear tyres and drove away, I commented to the tyre man why didn't he get it mended while here, he said the man comes in every second day to pump the tyre, he will probably only get it mended when it's too flat to drive in here and expect us to go to his yard so incur a call out charge aswell.
