Serpentine R Professional Series Snow Clearing Chains
Serpentine Tire Chains is the product of numerous requests from operators to produce a traction chain specifically designed for snow clearing applications.
1) Constant traction to reduce:
-washboard effect created by traditional ladder chains lifting and lowering plow blades as the tire runs over cross chains
-driver fatigue due to rough ride caused by traditional ladder chains
-side-slip as plow blades exert constant pressure to push vehicle to one side
2) Drawstring tension chain to:
-make installation faster with less effort.
-improve fit by allowing for faster tensioning to maximize service life by reducing loose fit as chains wear.
3) Square section hardened alloy steel for:
-longest life of all steel available for tire chains
-improved traction with square edges
-reversibility: chains can and should be turned and flipped after majority of initial wear
4) Flat Rectangular Reinforcement Wear bars extend service life:
-increases metallic wear mass by double in critical area on tire face
-improve traction in side slip conditions
-serves also to reinforce link to reduce fatigue cracks as chains wear and flex
5) Hardened Round Wear Rings to extend service life:
-1st link of chain going into connecting rings will always wear out first.
-the addition of 2 round wear rings increases metallic wear mass.
-serves to disperse wear on the 1st links to promote more even wear over tire face.
-made for performance
-priced affordably to be used by snow clearing in parking lots and state road snow removal.
