    Default Re: chains to replace vertical lift rods ?

    OK, makes more sense now. If it is needed to produce a specific effect then it is needed.

    [QUOTE=Bill Hoffman;1876521]Done this for a while. There's no way the blade can hit the rear tires.
    The lower links are a fixed distance from the tires. The chains only
    allow the blade ends to float up and down independently. This
    allows the blade to follow the contours of the driveway and not gouge.

    I replace both vertical links with chains. I really don't think that
    wear on the ball ends is an issue.

    Bill how did you make the chain hook up ? did you use a clevis ?

    I bent up 4 U-shaped pieces of steel with appropriate sized
    holes for 4 bolts. I then used a cold chisel to "open" the end
    links of the two chains, fed the u-shapes through the links and
    used the bolts to attach the chains to the lift arms and the
    turnbuckle arms. There is probably an easier way, but I like to make things more difficult than necessary. Actually, using appropriately
    sized clevis would be easier.
