I've managed to spike the tyres on both my wheelbarrows and on my garden trailer in the last couple of months. (Both have inner tubes).
It will happen again! (I've got hedges of blackthorn and cretageous).
Would prefer to repair them myself.
I'll need tyre levers to get the tyre(s) off.
What size tyre levers do you recommend, and whats the best source for something that will last?

Thanks
Martin

My dad used to use a spoon! But you can get standard sized tyre levers from any car shop, Halfords, etc. Good luck.
The less time you have, the more becomes available.

Draper make/sell tyre levers, you should be able to order or buy them off the shelf at any good motor-factors.

If you buy a bottle of OKO tyre sealant you should not get any more punctures!
My Son is a ground maintenance contractor, I  have a small holding and all barrows /pneumatic wheeled equipment incuding ride on mowers have the sealant in them and the only time we need a tyre lever is to fit a new tyre when its worn out.
It is  when the tyre is removed that one can see the down time it has saved, the inside sometimes  looks like a hedgehog  :) !
