Gradeall Truck and Agricultural Tyre Sidewall Cutter with Tread Cutter
A tyre sidewall is one of many elements which makes up a standard tyre. Tyre sidewalls are the vertical part on the side of the tyre and they are important for various reasons, mainly because they stop air escaping from the tyre and increase stability which is key for overall safety. In terms of dealing with end of life scrap tyres the sidewall contains the bead which is a collection of steel wires used to hold the tyre to the rim. This bead is a big part of why the tyre retains its shape, removing this makes it much easier to compress and bale scrap truck or tractor tyres. The Gradeall Tyre Sidewall Cutting Machine aims to make it easier to process these tyres.
Whole tyres are brought to the tyre cutter machine which then picks them up and cuts the sidewalls using a tool steel grade cutting blade. Once this is done, the machine deposits the cut tyre back onto the ground. After this process, you are left with two sidewalls and one tread section.
For a tutorial on how to cut the sidewall of tires, a video demonstration of the sidewall cutter is available.
The video below demonstrates how to cut the sidewall out of a tyre using the Gradeall Truck Tyre Sidewall Cutter. It also shows the ease and simplicity of operating this waste tyre cutting machine, and how it efficiently separates agricultural and lorry tyre sidewalls from the main body.

With safety guards built into the Tyre Sidewall Cutter, it has been designed with the safety of the operator 100% in mind, preventing any accidental injury during operation. In addition, as a result of there being no need to lift these potentially heavy tyres, the risk of back injury is minimal.
A control system that requires the user to use two hands behind the guards when cutting the sidewall of tires means the operator is standing safely out of the way while using the machine. For an added layer of safety, the Sidewall cutter is equipped with 3 Emergency stop buttons.
The Tyre Tread cutter can be purchased as a bolt-on option, to attach onto the side of the machine with no modification work required. It is an excellent upgrade to the Tyre Sidewall Cutter. After cutting the sidewalls, the Tread cutter allows you to cut up the remaining tread section into smaller pieces.
While handy on smaller tyres, the main advantage here is that for larger truck and agricultural tyres, cutting the tread sections allows the large pieces of tyres to be stored or baled much easier. Tractor tyres, especially the enormous rear ones on many modern tractors are especially bulky items, the tread cutter is designed to break these down into easy to manage chunks.
This tyre cutting machine will deal with super single truck tyres, but as the image below shows agricultural tractor tyres pose no challenge to the tread cutter which has dissected these once large tyres into small easy to carry pieces.
With sharp blades and moving parts safety was of paramount importance when designing the Tyre Sidewall Cutter and the Tread Cutter. The machine operates using hydraulic rams and motors which are controlled by hydraulic valuves the operator interacts with using levers. On both the sidewall cutter and optional tread cutter they have been designed whereby the operator must use two hands at the controls for the machine to work. This ensures that the operator stands in the safe area protected from moving parts. In addition to that there are also 3 emergency stop buttons strategically placed around the machine which can be used in the event that anything goes wrong during the operation of the tyre cutting machine.
As unusual as the concept of cutting tyre sidewalls is, the benefits reaped from this simple, yet intricate process. These benefits can be divided into several groups, as follows:
Benefits to tyre processors of cutting tyre sidewalls using this Tyre Cutting Machine:
Cutting the sidewalls of the tyre helps in facilitating the shredding process that ensues:
Cutting the sidewalls enables safe isolation of the metal belt of the bead, hence not only protecting the shredding machinery but also facilitating the shredding process of the tread even further. With as much rubber cut away from around the bead the recovery of the scrap metal content in this area becomes more feasible.
A MKII Tyre Baler can compress the tyres of a truck so easily, after the removal of the sidewalls has taken place. This means there’s no need for separate balers for different tyre sizes, where once it may have been necessary to use a specific truck tyre baler which at most could bale 12 truck tyres it is now possible to bale all in a MK2 tyre baler. Our Tyre Sidewall Cutter can flawlessly handle tyres including super single lorry/truck tyres and the tyres of agricultural equipment such as farmyard tractor tyres.
Companies around the globe have been watching their environmental impact. Using the Tyre Sidewall Cutter has proved to provide environmental benefits.
Recycled tyres can be used for a range of other purposes, such as:
Removing the sidewalls from tyres allows for the reusing of both the tyres and sidewalls for different purposes, especially in the agricultural field. This helps in reducing rubber pollution as tyres are made of rubber and plastic and both materials have a significant impact on the environment due to the fact they will not naturally decompose it is only with human intervention to process these waste tyres that they can be dealt with.
