 Tire chain tip!

My brother-in-law and I were discussing tractor stuff at Christmas and he told me he kept having problems keeping the chains on his Allis tight. Well he came up with this idea: he let a sufficient amount of air out of the rear tires before he fastened the chains. Once he fastened them snuggly he filled the tires to their proper psi and whala! tight chains. He said after an hour of cleaning snow out of his drive the chains never lossened up a bit. Just a little FYI.

Cliff, I've never used chains on a tractor, and fortunately very rarely on cars and pickups, but that's the way I used to put them on. Let the air out, put them on as tight as possible and air up the tire. That's the way I was taught to do it when I worked in a service station as a teenager.

Bird,
That's the way with me. My dad had an old 8N Ford that we put chains on but they seemed to work pretty well and stayed tight. So the process sounded pretty good. My NH is 4x4 and haven't needed chains yet.

Interesting idea. What do is I use full chain tensioners, its just a big rubber band with 5 clips that holds the chains good and tight. You can get the bands at just about any Auto parts store just ask for the chain tensioners that you use with full chains on cars and trucks depending on your tire size. I have had mine for almost 20 years and they are still working, cost about $5.00 for the pair.
