ChainGrip is a type of excavator track grip, specifically a chain track attachment to provide increased traction, stability and safety for excavators, hoes, skid steers and rubber tracked vehicles. Designed to multi-fit across 95% of tracks, ChainGrip supports work in all conditions and is the most versatile of the TrackGrip products – these traction control devices provide the same benefits as chains on a rubber-tyred vehicle.

The advantage of ChainGrips is the speed and ease of use. They’re great for clearing carparks and driveways of snow, through to providing traction on dirt slopes in farm and forestry terrain. ChainGrips take just 15-30 minutes to install and remove via a simple bolt on bolt off mechanism.

Traction for Steep, Dry Ground

The Challenge:

A fencing contract in a forestry block involved installing 1.5km of fencing boundary around the trees. It was steep, dry and the base was like gravel. It would have been like a skating rink without the ChainGrips.


The Solution:  

Using excavator track grips, in this case ChainGrips. “The indents in the ground show where they’re biting in. Without the ChainGrips we would have had to do some of the job by hand which would have stretched it out. I get to hills and either climb or back up them – I don’t even stop to think if the vehicle will make it. I know the ChainGrips will come through for me,” says Mouse Maketoni


The Outcome:

  • Easy installation – “The only time I take the ChainGrips off is when I’m transporting and need to put the vehicle on a trailer.  I’ve got installation of all 16 units down to 15-20 minutes.”

  •  Massively reduced downtime – “The ChainGrips saved us a possible two weeks delay on a three week job.”

  • Traction, stability and safety for you and your vehicle – prevents slipping and sliding in previously unworkable conditions – provides you peace of mind.
