Josh, four foot chains are just the ticket for chaining crawlers and excavators down.

yup. Just did that with my garden hose. Do it about every 5 years, like clockwork.

A few twist nuts and a little duct tape will make it whole again. When I was driving truck part time I was in a farmer s grain bin using a sweep auger powered by a 220v cord that was all chewed up. It had several splices with twist nuts and several more bare spots. The cord was laying on a metal drying floor but I never saw sparks while I was there. Some guys can get away with stuff like that.

Looks like it just got the ground wire and not in two. Tape it.

Well, aren't you lucky! Instead of just one cord you now have three.

Don't feel like you are the only stupid person. I did the same thing with a 50' one back last Friday. I have a 60" 3 spindle deck under my Kubota tractor and had to take the deck off to untangle what was left of the cord.There was about 30' wrapped around all 3 blades.------Loren

i know, thats why we have to have a place for everything, and when it's not in it's place, then we look for it,before a disaster hits us.

I've already apologized to my boys, someplace out on the farm is a very nice 12 inch rat tail file..... someplace... and someplace are a few half-sections of JD disc harrow discs, all nice and sharp and snapped-off and pointy-edged .. sorry, boys. There's also a nice 25 foot log chain, you're sure to find it when you're brush-hogging. Sorry, guys.

My dad found about a twenty foot log chain with the plow about four years after he lost it the first time. Amazing how pitted the links were after being buried that long. Just like that valve stem fish I lost after using it ONE time a couple of weeks ago. When the two from Ebay show up I will find the other.

Your story reminded me that last year Dad got a whopping 4 foot long log chain stuck somehow in the gauge wheel and row opener of his planter. Yes only 4 feet with hooks on both ends. The land owner is a long time friend of ours with a reputation of being tight. He caught a little flak from the other old boys at the tavern. It might not have even been his but it was good fun.
