Skid Steer Loader Chains 101

Skid steer loader tire chains are next in the line up in our series on snow chains. Much of the country is already covered in snow (us included here in Massachusetts). Whether you are using your skid steer for snow removal, construction, or farming, these machines need to keep working in any type of weather. Tire chains are the best solution for that extra traction needed on ice, hard packed snow and particularly for any type of use on hilly or steep inclines.

What you need to know about skid steer chains before you buy


No matter what type of equipment you operate, there are a few basic things you should know before you can purchase chains.
Clearance
First you need to know if you have enough clearance for chains. Clearance requirements vary from about 2-3 inches on skid steer loaders. If you’re not sure if you have enough clearance, just give us a call.
Tire Size
The next thing you need to know is your tire size. Snow chains are fairly available in most skid steer tire sizes.
Work Environment
Next, you need to consider your work environment. Are you using them for snow removal? Construction sites? Farming?  How often are you using your equipment, and are you operating in extreme conditions? On road versus off road use also determines the best type of chain style. There are more than six styles of chain available for skid steer equipment. Sometimes it is best to speak with a tire chain expert so they can help you find the right chain for your needs.
Price
And last but not least of course is price. A good tire chain supplier will give you options.
So clearance, Tire Size, Work Environment and Price are all important factors to consider…
