    Earthforce.com <-- Any one tried them for tire chains?

    Free Shipping | 2 Link Standard Duty Tire Chain | 7329242EF | Earthforce Parts

    Anyone tried tire chains from Eartchforce.com? They are about $150 cheaper shipped to my house than I can find anywhere else. Too good to be true?

    I am looking for a set of 12 x16.5 two link ladder chains for my Gen 1 2025r. General snow plowing is the application.

    Also, are those 3/8" cross links? Didn't your old set have smaller cross links? I am hoping these won't fall between the lugs. so I was hoping 3/8'' would be enough. I dont have much horse manure around here so maybe it wont be a problem. Before I order I need to go measure the clearance on my gen 1 2025r to make sure I dont need spacers.

    There are some places when the end of September is too late.

    Procrastination is not your friend when it comes to snow equipment.

    I guess I will be the guinea pig. I ordered from Earthforce. The 2 link ladder chains with 3/8" cross chains were about $275 shipped. I had to pay some tax. I will try to remember to add some photos when they get here. It is almost that time of year.

    I had a set of chains that came with a Mitsubishi MT372 that I purchased in the 1980's,,,

    I wondered if those rear chains would fit the front of the JD4105 10-16.5 R4 tires,,,

    All I had to do was add 3 links to the outside, and this is the result:



    Do you think this will help my snow traction any??

    I would have loved to have found a set of chains that were the "right size' to make work. But the snow is coming soon so it was getting to be time to just make a decision.

    The research I did was not conclusive if truck tires could work on a tractor. Some guys said they did it and it worked fine and if you call the tire chain companies they say they won't fit and will not work.

    I don't plan on breaking any land speed records with the chains on but I ended up just trying to buy some. We shall see.
