There's a split-rim Farmall 400 on eBay right now. I hadn't understood what "split-rim" meant until now that I've seen the pictures.

Does anybody know why they were built this way? Did make for easier assembly?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I am thinking they did it for a short time to represent farmalls that had split rims, but soon discontinued making them because it wasn't cost effective.

Split rims are also very dangerous, in not properly installed.

Because it is a PITA to try and put a stiff tractor tire over a rim!!! Split rims make the job a whole lot easier. You had to be careful that the lock ring engaged and inflated the tire in a safety cage. Otherwise those lock rings would go dangerously flying.

Thanks for the reply. I should have said, in my original question, that the tractor I saw on eBay was a toy Farmall 400.

Sorry for the confusion.

Loren,

I wasn't very specific in my original post. The tractor I was talking about was a toy 400 split-rim. Inflating is not much of a problem there...LOL.

Hope the sap harvest is going well. I sure enjoy your postings.

Stan
