You want double ring chains, all the difference in the world.

I plow my hilly driveway with a back blade. Always needed chains on my 40 HP Ford 2810

Just traded it in for a new 4WD New Holland 38 HP
Have not needed the chains.....no huge snowfalls yet but it has been icy. Very pleased with the 4WD ....still have chains in barn if needed tho

Trygg is what I have on my UTV

Ok, thanks for the responses all. One last question - how much difference in traction does the V-bar style give vs. double ring or regular chain?

What about this style chain?

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-other/ottawa/tractor-chains/1228522545

I just went out to look at my tractor, and it has the 23 degree lugs, so that means the duo-grip.

On an odd note - I did note that the tyres had a roll direction indicator pointed the 'wrong' way, which would suggest the tyres are on backwards. However, the lugs are angled the 'correct' way - same as every other tractor pictured in this thread.

Those ring chains are more for off road (off field?) use. Think logging, deep mud. Probably not the best choice for driveway clearing.

If indeed that is your setup, it's your picture. I found it on google and just linked to it.

These are the ones I use. They've gotten me out of a few situations over the years.
