Used skidder tire chains
« on: October 10, 2016, 09:17:55 AM »
I'm looking for a set of used skidder tire chains.  My tire size is 18.4x26. But I can modify any size to fit .  I'm aware that most chains that aren't being used are probably wore a lot.   That's ok.  I can't justify spending 3000 bucks for a new set of chains for this skidder

Ive got a pair for that size tire..not really for sale but..I guess I could part with them.I keep them just in case I need them and figure I will never need them until I sell them.
Also it seems like a huge ace up my sleeve if I sell the machine to have them. As I recall they were like new but I haven't looked at them in a couple of years,,that being said I would sell for $2000..I think that's fair..no screaming deal by no means but if you need them,I would part with them.

2500 is bout the same as 3000 to me.  And thanks for the offer but I'm kinda lookin for some a lil cheaper.  The way I see it, if I'm gonna spend 2000 .... I may as well spend 3 and have new chains.

I'm not afraid of having to fix them.  I know there has to be lots of chains somewhere that bigger outfits have thrown away because they are starting to break.  I should be able to fix a 500 dollar set of chains that will last a couple years without to much trouble. It's just finding those old chains lol
