Been looking for a tire machine for awhile now. Everyone seems to think they are made of gold around here. Just looking to change the occasional implement, truck or trailer tire, car tires too. Everything we have has steel rims, and rim clamp units are way past my price range.
Found this Bishman 880 locally for $100, so brought it home.
Anything to know about these? This has the air operated bead breake, and 110v mount/demount drive. I like the compact design for my too-small shop, and the way it rolls around.
Anyone else using one?

without a picture it is hard to tell which 1 you have. we looked at them many years ago for the tire shop. for occasional use they are fine, but in a shop they are slow and harder to operate than a coats laydown or other brands. I would not turn one down for the price you paid.

I have one.

Ever since I purchased it, knock on wood, I have not needed to patch a tire. *murphey"s law*.

There is a video on youtube of someone operating the old Bishman.

Not familiar with the Bishman machines.

Back in 1980 when I was working in the Mines in Death Valley, Calif. , I had to go into Las Vegas to get tires for my truck. While at the Tire Shop I noticed they had a bunch of old junk, broken, dismantled tire machines alongside the building. Talked to the owner & ended up buying all of it for $100. including all of the tools & equipment that went with them. I got a Coats 10-10, 10-20, 20-10, & 20-20 .

I spent the next months spare time totally dismantling everything and then reconditioning the best parts from each to build up a "New" tire machine. I now have the "rarest" Coats Tire Machine around, it's a Coats 20-10-20 . LOL! But it works great, & I still have it.
