    Hello Davor,


    The only disadvantage to full protection tire chains is the initial
    purchase price per set of four chains.


    The chains are easily maintained and repaired with repair links using
    common repair links for link chain.


    The axle of the loader has to be raised to allow installation of the
    chain sets on the two wheels of the axle using your shop crane with
    a lifting frame to allow the tire to be spun by hand to lace the chain
    links to the opposite end of the chain mat with the connector links as
    the chain mat covers the tread and both the inner and outer side walls
    of the individual tire.


    The air pressure of the tire must be maintained at a higher pressure to
    ensure proper tensioning on the chain set at all times.

    If you have a blow out and the tire is damaged the chain set must be
    removed to change the tire and the chain must be relaced on the new tire
    this is the only disadvantage to tire protection chains as it consumes time
    to remove them and install them.

    These tire chains provide the end user huge amounts of protection and save
    on tire damage and increase the useable life of each tire in the your loaders.

    Your machine operators ned to be reminded that the tire chains are wear
    parts and be sure that the tires are not spun excessively when mucking
    out the shots on the quarry.
