    Thumbs up The New GTT Tire Grooving Tool Lending Program

    So a lot of us have an interest in grooving our R4 tires for better winter traction but the $85 for a tire grooving tool that you’re going to use just once seems like kind of a steep price to pay.

    Instead of a rental tool, we are going to provide a traveling tool for the community. The first guy buys the tool outright and does the work. Then the second guy paid the first guy $10 less than the original cost of the tool plus the cost of shipping from guy 1 to guy 2. Guy 2 knocks $10 off what he spent and sells it on to guy 3 (who also pays shipping). Basically, once the tool moves on, each guy has spent $10 plus the cost of shipping to get to use the tool. This way, if the tool breaks, someone loses it, someone steals it, UPS has an oops, etc no one guy is out the whole cost of the tool. Eventually, the tool is “paid off” and it travels around the country for just the cost of shipping from guy to guy. The cost of replacement blades will also have to be factored in. If you happen to be the guy that gets the groover and you notice it needs blades, order the blades, ship the groover with the new blades, and add it to the cost for the guy downstream minus your $10 use fee.

    Rule #1, the most important rule,
    There is an inherent risk in doing this, but by signing up you agree this could not always have the best outcome. As a member in good standing you will try to help out the next guy as best as you can within reason and within this setup. Please respect the other members here on the list and provide accurate information in this thread.

    Rule #2,
    Pcabe5 has volunteered to oversee this. At anytime there is a question or some confusion, please post to the thread here or contact him through a PM. Please remember to be respectful to others by not posting personal info here in the main forum. This is a volunteered deal on everyone's end.


    Here’s how this works:


    1) Sign up to get the tool on the list here, use the list to keep a running count of how much each person needs to pay.. To sign up you must have a minimum of 40 posts and you must be an active member. You must be accessible via PM while you have the groover. Copy the current list in your post and simply add your name to the end. You must also include a simple statement saying you agree to the terms in post #1 of this thread. This way we know you read this post and actually agree.

    2) When the tool comes to you, do the work quickly as reasonably possible.

    3) If the groover needs new blades, order new blades and add to the cost for the next guy minus your use. Include the new blades in the groover kit.

    4) Contact the next guy on the list via PM to get his shipping info and tell him how much it’ll cost to ship from you to him. If you can't contact him after 2 weeks, move to the next guy down the list.

    5) Accept payment from the next guy however you like.

    6) Come back to this thread and post that you shipped it, what the destination city/state is, and what the tracking number is.

    7) Repeat until everyone’s tires are grooved.

    8) If you are the last person with the groover and the list seems exhausted, ship the groover back to pcabe5 or dieselshadow for the next user.

    9) Do not sign up unless you can follow these simple rules and guidelines.




    Here is a fresh list:

    1) John Deere 1025R TLB

    2) GreenBlood

    3) Johninthecamper

    I will order and provide the groover to the first person on the list to kick this off. I will also edit this post later to add part numbers for the blades and where to get them.

    I hope this works out for those that really want to do this to their R4s. It makes a big difference IMHO. And this tool sharing idea is so cool.

    Ok guys, one of our great members, Bulitt, is willing to place his groover into the GTT pass a long. Thanks you Bulitt.

    Here is the information on the groover:

    There are 11 new blades plus the one on the groover which is in good shape.
    It is an "Ideal" groover http://www.idealtiregroover.com/
    And blades are - No 4 Round Standard.
    Also I will be including the operating instructions.

    Bulitt's cost was $75, so this means that the first person will pay $65 plus shipping.

    So if you're interested please add your name to the list.

    - Bullit ($75)

    Wear a good pair of leather gloves just incase you inadvertently touch the iron.

    Posted for general info only. Not suggesting you alter your tractor based upon my feeble minded posts. Do so at your own risk. Maintenance and mods should be performed by a JD Dealer, or refer to your owners and maintenance manuals for proper procedures.

    I must’ve been able to sneak in a PM before his inbox was full. We’ll give him some time to respond before we go to GreenBlood.

    Go to next guy first. I don't know when I will have time. Spring is the next time I will have vacation. Working about 85 hours a week. Benifits of salary. Why I'm not here a lot.
