I have a set of the Home Depot 5/16 chain, and I think another set is from Harbor Freight. I bought it because it matched up with the ratcheting load binders I had. I agree that 5/16 is probably overkill for anything my 2520 will try to pull or lift. Heck, you could probably lift two bare 2520s up off the ground with one 5/16 chain.I was looking for chain and found the yellow zinc 20' 5/16" grade 70 premade with hooks under for about $38.00 at Home Depot. TSC is asking $65 for theirs. The extra hooks at HD are cheaper too. Any reason this is not as good and the TSC chain?
To tell you the truth, this seems like overkill for a chain to use with a small tractor on bucket hooks. I am thinking 1/4" chain would be fine. However if I were using it trying to pull up a stump or something, I am not sure how much strength I would need.
