Thought I'd posted this earlier, but didn't go thru, anyhow, I'm wondering what to ask for a set of chains in good condition. Can't remember what I paid 36 years ago. Hardly used them atall.

usually run about $100 here

You can find/buy them at $50 or so if you are patient.

for the ladder chain questions,

if you can find them cheap, put on more than one set.

On my snow plow tractor, I have 3 sets on the filled tires,

2 ladders and a ring set.

adds a lot of weight too.

yes, they were hard to get on, but I never get stuck in snow.

I have another set of tires that I swap on

in summer. Now that those chains are on, I'm never gonna take em off!

I've never had too much trouble with my ladder chains.

I did add some rings to the center of one set for a guy.

I just used cold shunts. If that's how they're spelled.

Ladder chains also work quite well on turf tires.

As long as you don't mind the ride!

ya I really screwed up, and sold my 8n X chains, thinking the ladder chains would be fine! going to regret that this winter!

has anyone modified the ladders to work better?

I got a set of ladder chains for one of my 8ns years ago, but there are near worthless as most of the Xchains hide down in the tire lugs. We do have a set of double rings on the 861 that work much better.

All depends on location, looks like you might be in Illinois?

In Michigan they're selling between $75 and $125 for ladder chains.

More for X patterns.

I see them around here from $75 to $125 in fair shape.

I picked up a pair in like new condition for $40 this summer.

but they are the ladder type, not the X ones.

Where are you located? Shipping could be a problem.

I"m not sure either; but, if you get the price worked out, I"d like a shot at them.
