Re: Best way to put on tire chains
No. 1 suggestion: NOT to put the chains on the tractor, the night the big storm is supposed to hit. They might not be for your sized tires, OR, you may have ended up with only 1/2 pair (only enough for 1 wheel), thanks to the previous owner.
I put mine on, back in October.
The second set went on, the weekend later.
The third set didn't make it to the wheels. They're about 6 inches short in length and 2 inches in width. Supposed to have been sized for the tires that I had. Well, that tractor now sits under a tarp covered with 8 inches of snow, with a brand new plow on it, and chainless. It's not there only because of the chains, we gotz an engine problem, too.
Luckily, I've got 2 other tractors, plus a few walk behind blowers, and long handled shovels to work with.
