Drag chains are not the most commonly used off-road products, but they are a necessity to anyone who plans to tackle serious outback and bush terrain. The purpose of drag chains is to drag fallen trees or large logs out of the way, allowing a clear path for your 4WD.
There are many different types of drag chains that can be purchased, but a set that is made from grade 70 high tensile steel, such as the Ridge Ryder 4WD Drag Chain Kit, is highly recommended. This rating makes it the ideal kit for anyone that doesn't want their four wheel driving adventure cut short due to their path being blocked. The chain is 5m in length with 7mm thick links, giving the drag chain a lashing capacity of 2900kg and a 5800kg breaking capacity. The kit comes in a handy storage bag which also includes a lug link, grab hook and slip hook making it versatile for all situations.
