Are you comparing a $2000+ tire changing machine to a $59 HF manual tool?

It takes me ~ 15 minutes to change a MC tire. Versus removing the wheel, 
driving to a MC shop, leaving it for them to work on later, then coming back 
the next day to pick it up and having to pay ~ $25 (each). And most shops 
will not mount tires bought on-line but instead want to sell you a tire at 
full retail. On-line prices are 25-50% less including shipping. (MC tires 
run ~ $100-$150 each and typically last 10K-15K miles.)
