Learning about some of the different types of heavy-duty tire chains for industrial equipment will help you decide which type of tire chain will work best for your situation. At Western Equipment, we know that choosing the right tire chains can make all the difference in the world. That is why we carry a wide selection of tire chains from some of the best brands on the market, including TRYGG and Laclede.

Types of Heavy-Duty Tire Chains

Some of the different types of heavy-duty tire chains that you can choose from include:

V-Bar Tire Chains

V-Bar tire chains are ladder-style chains that are constructed from several “V” shaped links welded in place on a cross chain. Each of the “V” shaped links are designed to work like an ice pick, providing a greater level of traction, even on ice. While V-Bar chains are a great option for industrial equipment that will be used off road, it is important to first make sure that there is at least a three-fingers width between the tire and other parts of the vehicle, so that the chains do not damage your industrial equipment.

Square Link Tire Chains

Square link tire chains are another type of ladder-style chain that can be used on industrial equipment to create better traction in icy or snowy conditions. All square link tire chains are constructed from strong, hardened alloy steel that has been shaped into square links to provide greater surface area than twist link chains or cable chains. Square link chains also offer a longer lifespan and are available in a wide range of sizes, making it easy to find the perfect fit for your exact requirements.

Studded Tire Chains

Manufactured from alloy steel that is case hardened for added durability, studded tire chains are a great option for industrial equipment that requires the ultimate in off-road traction. These tire chains also have robotically fused studs that are designed to last longer and to withstand everyday use on even the harshest terrains.
