The New Eagle TC GATOR cuts the tire clean (like a paper cutter) and does not leave an additional chunk of rubber to remove after cutting each tire. Eagle designed this smaller shop tire cutter to meet the needs of Tire shops, Auto Salvage Yards, and Tire Processors who generate smaller amounts of tires. It is also very economically priced. Other machines on the market will cut a chunk out of each tire that requires extra time and extra material that needs to be cleaned up. This machine has the same patented design as all of our bigger tire cutters and the TC Gator is capable of cutting Passenger Car tires up to and including 18.5 Light truck tires.
