If you need another reason for having more than one tractor, the best tool I have for handling rear tires is a boom pole. Even with just air, they weigh more than is easy to safely handle by hand. For an N-tractor the rear tire, rim, and center will weigh around 150 pounds (for the smallest size frequently used). I have managed to handle filled rear tires by hand in the past. If the tractor is jacked just enough to free the lugs, and the tire is kept perfectly upright while rolling it around... However, it is VERY easy to let a tire get just a little tipped. When it goes just a little too far, all you can do is jump fast, and hope it doesn't squash the cat.
