Tire protection chains are a great solution for maximizing the tire lifetime in underground mining and tunneling applications. Deep under the ground loaders and shuttle cars work in tough conditions and high moisture. In addition, limited space requires many maneuvers on abrasive surfaces, like specific minerals. This results in a lot of friction. On the other hand, long driving distances under the load also create additional stress. Tire protection chains are very important for this application.
You can save a lot just on tires!
Although tire protection chains may look like an expensive buy, just by mounting them you can drastically bring down the hourly operational costs on the long run. Therefore, after the first experience with tire protection chains they become an indispensable item for quarry owners.
