Skid Steer Tire Chains

We offer a large selection of skid steer tire chains available in either 2-link or 4-link spacing variations of twisted round link, square link alloy, or studded link alloy chain. Choosing the right tire chain for your skid steer application will help reduce downtime and improve overall productivity.

Twisted Round Link is the economical choice for skid steer customers who need basic traction. This style of chain is best suited for light duty applications when operating in mud, loose soil and mild snow pack.  

Square Link Alloy is the most popular choice for heavy use skid steer applications. They offer superior wear and durability and are the ideal choice for applications such as snow removal and long seasonal use when the tire chains will be in service for months at a time. They are the ideal choice for use on surfaces such as concrete, gravel, asphalt, or ice packed roadways.

Studded Link Alloy is the most aggressive chain we offer for skid steer loaders. They are used primarily in heavy mud, snow, ice, and off-road applications. They offer superior wear and durability and are the most aggressive traction chain available for skid steer applications.

Spacing Options come in either 2-link or 4-link variations. 2-Link spacing variant chains have their cross chains mounted to the side rail at 2-link intervals while 4-link spacing type chains have their cross chains mounted at every fourth link in the side rail. 2-Link spacing offers superior traction and a smoother ride vs. 4-link spacing variant chains.

Also referred to as snow chains, traction chains or traction devices, tire chains help provide traction for your skid steer when working on snow, ice, and/or mud covered surfaces. When purchasing skid steer tire chains, many customers choose to chain up all four tires as skid steers utilize mechanically locked right and left drive-trains. Adding chain to just one tire on each side can damage the gearbox and drive-train as traction is applied to only one wheel creating uneven drive-train wear. Chaining up all four tires ensures a smoother ride, maximum traction, and less wear-and-tear on your machine.
