Breaking the chain

When purchasing a chain to drag a tire along the road, the first concern is to make sure the chain is long enough to wrap around the tire.  Virtually any classic chain will do.  At least I thought.

Chain ground down after one session

I wanted to make sure I didn’t have one of those weird twisted chains used on kids swing sets.  Those things aren’t really good for anything.  And the chain that can hold a 1,000 pounds is way overkill.  So there’s no reason to purchase a heavy-duty chain because there’s no way I’m going to pull 280 pounds of load.

That may be true, but.

Maybe I need thicker chain.  I’ll try that and see if the physics of the universe changes and the chain survives.  At least I know that if I’m chained to something, I can drag it for a half hour to cut it.  The chain does get blasting hot, too.
