The process of changing tyres on Rear Dump Trucks (RDTs) involves lifting the tyre and rim assembly either on or off the hub of the truck. This task requires the tyre fitter to be positioned between the truck hub and the tyre handler to be able to guide the tyre handler operator and also to remove or place wheel nuts.

This 2006 document describes how a major mining services contractor designed, trialled, and implemented fall back arrestor arms on their fleet of Tyre Handlers.
