Equipment demands high quality equipment that will
hold up to the rigors of the job. High quality
chains are expensive and they still fail much too
quickly. We also know how much you hate chains. Now
there is an alternative to steel chains that will
provide you with ease of installation, longer
lifespan, shorter installation time frame so you can
get on the road faster and eliminate the damage
caused by steel chains when they break or come off.

GoClaws work great on
almost all heavy equipment and they are tough.
Ten times tougher than your tires and they last
longer than steel chains. They don't damage the road
surface or the shop floor when you bring in vehicles
for service or storage. If they do break they are
field serviceable. Simply insert a replacement
segment and you are off again. Try that with chains!
the correct GoClaw model we will require the tire
size and tire measurement in inches from the ground
to the top of the tire AND the width of the tires in
inches. This is due to the many types of equipment tires out there. With the tire size
AND measurements in inches we can get you
the right set quickly and easily.
Chains are notorious
for causing damage to the equipment fenders, wheel
wells and other vehicle body parts, axles, tires
and even driver's hands. While you will not want to
drive extensively on dry pavement or exceed 30 mph,
intermittent travel on dry pavement can be done.
Extensive use in this manner will accelerate wear.
However, we have tested GoClaws for 500 miles on hot
dry pavement with minimal wear. This is a perfect
solution for DOT and other equipment that travels between
clear and snowy roads and many other commercial
applications where it is a waste of time to take
chains on and off. Additionally GoClaws will not
damage tarmac, asphalt or dirt maintenance roads like chains do. For
ice road equipment we offer the ability to add ice
studs to the GoClaws dramatically enhancing their
traction on solid ice. See our
parts page for ice
traveling at or below 30 mph (48 km/h) to ensure
your safety but we have tested them to exceed 50 mph
(80 km/h) to ensure an adequate margin safety.
Manufacturer's note: On dry pavement the
GoClaws and SnoClaws experience a harmonic imbalance
between 15 and 18 MPH. If you power through this
speed range the ride smoothes out very nicely.

items are typically in stock but it is a good idea
to order them and learn how to put them on before
you need them in the cold
and snow. A practice session will make you a lot
happier when it comes time to use them on the road.
