Cutting tires

I cut some big scraper and coal mine tires for dispozal and I'm trying to find a way to cut them easier. Been using a sawzall and it's a pain in the @$$ and hard. Any ideas what would cut them good? We're talking 2"-4" of rubber with a bit of steel mixed in. There is a company with a cutter but obviously they are my competitor and won't tell me what they use and I need something soon.
Thanks in advance.

Have you tried an abrasive blade in a skill saw?

Jack the bead so that it wants to ease away rather than pinch the blade.

Beverly shears will cut the sidewall - $200 from Enco

What are the local rules? Here it is 3 pieces, so I do sidewalls and tread.

The commercial tool is a hydraulic beverly shear that will cut to the center. Push it on with a bobcat and make 3 cuts.

Up to 24.5 I just use a knife, unless the sidewall is steel or arimide.

I'm trying to cut them 10" into the tread so I have a 28" deep water tank left and the 10" piece I have another use for :Thumbup: . Zero waste is the plan so I don't have any issues with the EPA. I've just been taking sidewalls out and that's easy with a sawzall but there is waste and apparently the EPA doesn't want that.

Yes, one for concrete. Use a metal blade, they are the black blades with the fiberous material in them like the ones used for a grinder.

Yep, I think a concrete saw would work good, or a sawzall with a more aggressive blade.

The chop saw blade for ferrous in a concrete saw, larger blade and much more HP than a skill saw.

Metal cutting blade for the wires in the tires, they are not very thick and will kook up on big toothed blades.

Skill saw with a flooring blade will cut the bead but they don't last. I never had many to cut so never paid close attention to the cost other than cutting costs more than burning.
