Tyre Rim Separator

The Gradeall Tyre Rim Separator T.R.S makes the task of separating the two main parts of a road wheel; the steel or alloy rim, and the rubber tyre as effortless as possible.

Each of these two components is hugely valuable, in separated form, for recycling purposes. The profits gained from waste steel, generated from used rims, will quickly offset the cost of this machine leading to a prompt return on investment.

With rims separated the used tyres can then be further processed with other machines in the tyre recycling range such as being cut with Sidewall Cutter to make shredding easier or baled in the MKII Tyre Baler to assist storage and shipping.

Product Description

How the Tyre rim separator works

The Tyre Rim Separator is very easy to use and designed to keep the operator as safe as possible.

  1. The operator sets a tyre onto the machine aligning the rim of the clamp.
  2. The adjustable rest can be moved so that the weight of the tyre is suitably supported.
  3. The operator moves to the control panel turns on the machine and operate the controls, 2 hands are required on the controls to ensure the operator remains in a safe location.
  4. The tyre rim separator moves its clamp downwards onto the tyre, automatically closing the transparent guard over the tyre.
  5. The separating ram extends upon the rim either bending it if steel, or if an alloy rim it will break apart. It works as a tyre rim punch to force the rim out.
  6. The rim will push out of the tyre and fall onto the ground in front of the machine.
  7. The clamp lifts up and opens the guard allowing the tyre to be taken away.

Suitable for alloy wheels

With the included alloy wheel insert the Tyre Rim Separator can be used to separate even very thin spoke alloy wheels.

A tool-free adjustable tyre rest allows the machine to be quickly adjusted to work with different sizes of tyres.


The automatic safety guard closes down and over the tyre to prevent any debris from hitting the operator, two-hand controls ensure that the operator is always standing at the controls and out of harm’s way.
