What Alternatives Are There to Using Tire Chains on Your Farm Tractor?


Alternatives to tire chains that help to avoid the inconvenience and damage that heavy chains can cause include products from Flex Trax. Sold under the GoClaw and SnoClaw brands, these are easily installed traction grips designed to give good hold under difficult conditions.

More involved solutions involve installing winter tires with built-in studs, but these should be used with caution as their grip on dry roads is not good. If it is the harsh metal of the tire chains that is causing problems, it is also possible to buy more effective chains made from rubber that may be easier to install and do less damage to the ground.
