Tyre bead breaking tools

We've gradually got kitted out to do our own puncture repairs but haven't got any tools to break the bead while the wheel is still on the vehicle.
At the moment we have to take the wheel off, lay it down and use the edge of the handler bucket. Hardly ideal.
What tools are best for the job? It's for "normal" sized tractor tyres, not massive combines etc.
Thanks.

We have one of these. I think it's a brilliant tool. It works very well

Something like this? Could pipe it to tractor hydraulics if can turn them down enough
I have one of those, bought a second hand hand pump off eBay for it. Works ok, but sometimes feel one needs an extra hand, holding it in position, operating the pump,and giving it a whack with the sledge into the bead slot . The soft hands bale handler will do tractor tyres most times.
