Got myself a set of second hand Ladder Chains for $75 the other day. Guess I don't have to fork out 2k now for the ARB Air Locker!

An 'expert' at OL reckoned they are generally better than Diamond Chains. Anybody got any input on this? I will not be going near snow....ever.

I was quoted a ball park figure of around $300 for a pair so a full set for $75 is pretty good I think.

Cheers Mark

There have been many times I would have been stuck in the CREB track without my chains. They are an essential part of my recovery equipment. Cheers RobCairns Offroad Training & Tours

Thanks Rob, that's why I got them, heading up the track pretty soon (1st time). I'll pop in and see you some time. Cheers.

Ladders have saved me from getting bogged in mud a heap of times. They dig in really well and get a lot of bite. Usually the diamond chains have much smaller links and dont get as much grab. The advantage of diamonds is that they stop most sideways slip on icy and snowy bitumen. I am not sure if they do the same in mud. I have never put them on in mud. Ladders are not as good in the snow as yo do tend to get a bit of sideways slip. Modern Diamond chains are being made with really easy connectors that do up quickly so you spend little time on your knees in the mud and snow. Ladders can take a little stuffing around in the wet and cold. For mud I use ladders first and in snow Diamond. Andy

Thanks Andy, what I wanted to hear. I won't be anywhere near snow so looks like I've done well. Either would have been good though.. Cheers.
