Snow chains increase the patency of vehicles in difficult road conditions
Driving a car in the icy conditions is very dangerous,so the drivers of transport began to "shoe" the wheels in the chain of anti-skid to overcome the icy sections of the road. Later they were used for off-road driving, including mud and snow.
Today snow chains for trucksThe vehicles are used to ensure the patency of complex forest and rural road sections. For the first time they began to be used in our country on timber trucks, exporting logs from harvesting places not only to snowy, but also to rainy seasons. At that time, it was easy, as it was necessary, to wind the wheels with chain sections, and there was no question of producing special devices.
However, Western entrepreneurs approached thisissue a little differently - began to develop and introduce into production chains of anti-skid several modifications, designed for different types of vehicles. There were models for individual road accidents, for example for driving on the rolled and on loose snow, or for congresses from ice hills. But impassability is the main problem of Russia, therefore snow chains for driving on clay and waterlogged ground are necessary at any time of the year.
Indeed, the passability of special vehicles and any vehicles on the roadsIncreases, respectively, and efficiencycargo transportation increases due to the fact that on the driving wheels when driving on loose soil, sand, mud or clay snow chains are worn. The responses of drivers testify that it is profitable to have their kit even for those who regularly travel on the highway and only occasionally have to leave the road to places where there are no roads.
Carry two sets of rubber veryit is expensive, and when traveling to rest or hunting from 500 kilometers only 50 km, it may be necessary to ride through mud or snow. For this, it is not worth carrying mud or studded rubber with it, because it is much more economical and efficient to just get a chain of anti-skid from a small suitcase and in a matter of minutes easily install them on the driving axles, thus providing the same passableness as a tractor. After that, you will not be afraid of snowdrifts, nor wetlands of the road. Manufacturers guarantee an increase in patency from three to ten times. It is also beneficial to use them with worn tires.
Chain material - alloy steelwith the addition of titanium, chromium, nickel. In order for the snow chains to crash into the ground or the icy ground, they are made of profiled, pointed metal. To install, you need to distribute the wheels around the circumference, and then smoothly drive them so that three-fourths of the chain are on the wheel. After that, you need to fix them from the inside of the wheel, and then with the outer tighten the lever. Time for this will not take more than five minutes. It is important to remember that you must install the chains in advance, and not during slipping.
