    Well I am kinda in the same boat!
    Friend just gave me 1/2 a set of chains, HD 'basket weave' style using 3/8" studded cross.
    Size is about what would fit a B21 rear.
    So I now have some repair parts.

    So far I've been too cheap, and lazy, to get chains...I'd likely leave them on well into the summer if I had them...or maybe it isn't such a big hassle to mount/dismount them as I imagine.

    They're not as bad as you might think, mine take less than 1/2 hour to install.

    I lay my out directly behind the tractor the way you want them on the tire take a piece of rope and run it through the rim and pull the tractor forward so it climbs up on the tire get off straighten so it is laying equally on each side of tire.i then get back on and pull ahead a few feet and repeat process after a few more adjustment the chain is on,hook it up at the connectors and then use bungee cords to take up the slack.there is no heavy lifting.

I can easily pick the box up and inside I find a box repackaged within the box. Whoops, just one chain. Not good. The distributor is checking on it. But I am thinking one chain is not going to do a whole lot of good on snow and ice
    Somewhere up east is a lonely little chain pining for its mate!

    My routine is similar, but I jack up one rear wheel at a time and roll them on sitting in my garage. Once they're in place, hook up the ends and lockwire the shackles and you're done.

    when you take that piece of rope thru the rim and tie it and move forward that walks the chain up no physical lifting required just adjusting side to side.
