    For large split rim truck tires, I have used the front wheel of the pickup to break the bead. Just lay the tire flat on the ground, and drive over the tire close to the bead. Repeat revolving the tire until it is broken all the way around.

    Ive used the back hoe with a 4x4 across the tire to brake bead.
    The last one the tractor wasn't available and I tried every thing to pop it loose I went in for lunch and on the way back I saw the log splitter in the garage started it threw the tire on it with a piece of wood on blade and pop easy peasy.
    Now the tire iron thing takes manpower and I haven't come up with a mechanical helper for that yet.
    If it ain't broke we will help you brake it
    If it is broke we will help you get it fixed!

    I don't think so But I'm sure it would work giving enough weight on the topside of the jack another thing I thought of, Is! If not for the fact of usually the tire needing changed on the tractor with a FEL, One could actually use the FEL to break the tire down, or has this already been mentioned

    HF 20ton H-frame arbor press is what I use to break the bead on my 17" motorcycle wheels. It is big enough to work on car and CUT front tires, though I haven't tried.
