H-Pattern Pros and Cons
Benefits of Use
H-pattern chains are very effective when used on deep tread tires like the R1 tread. The H-pattern keeps more of the cross chain on top of the tread surface, not allowing the chains to drop between the deep lugs. This style of chain also puts more chain on the ground surface providing more traction and grip on extreme and uneven surfaces.
Downsides of Use
On some units like skid loaders, H-pattern chains lack the flexibility to handle the side to side movement. The side to side movement can pull the cross chain hooks away from the side chains. For any skid loader, skid steer, or lifting equipment where side to side movement is performed, a ladder chain is the better option to use.
