    Tire doubling machine - GIF

    Tire doubling machine. A quick search shows that this is mostly for storage? I still don't get it.

    You do not understand??

    Scrap tires take up half the space, and transport in half the space.

    A tire dealer in ranching country in Texas used to do this with tractor tires to prevent flats caused with mesquite thorns

    The guy is probably doing more than just doubling he could conceivably get 3 ,4 or possibly 5 tires inside on 1.
    From a scrapper's or tire dealer's stand point if he has to pay a Per tire fee to get rid of them the machine and the labor to run it would quickly become profitable
    From a haulers point of view if he gets paid by the ton it makes sense to him if the tires are sandwiched.
    On the recycle's side the thicker more compact the rubber concentration going into their machines the more efficiently they run.
    In Countries that are so bogged down with environmental lobbied agendas that deter the recycling of tires it make sense because thye can can pack more tires in a shipping container to ship overseas to countries smart enough to recycle them for the materials they are made of.
    these small simple doubling machines are a win for everyone
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
