Today I cut down two decent size ash trees; and I used the '75 1614 PK to drag the logs to an area where I could cut them up. There was one time I had two chains hooked together, since I could not get the tractor close enough. I pulled the log the length of one chain and backed up, so I could take one chain out of the equation and have better maneuverability. Well, when I needed the chain again... I could not find it! Even though I have two milk crates full of chain, I obviously wanted to find that one. It only took a minute or two before I found it, but it got me thinking. Why not paint the chains? They do not have to be perfect, I know it will wear off eventually. Have any of you guys painted you chains, and with what? How long has the paint stayed on for you?
It is not uncommon for me to walk through the woods and find a chain sitting on the ground, where I left it a few days, or even weeks before. I also would not doubt that still have a couple sitting in the woods... probably hidden under a pricker bush by now.
