Whimpy Ring

"The ring started to bend to the point it may not come off the ball. Needs to be thicker"

Tugger Chain

,
June 16, 2014
By Roadking02
from Pennsylvania
"Well worth the money. This chain is very sturdy, I have been using it with the brush grubber and shrub grubber and it works great. I just throw the ring over the ball on my Polaris ranger 6X6 and start pulling.
The color makes it easy to find.
You won't go wrong if you purchase this product.

Works well with Model# BG-12 Brush Grubber

,
May 31, 2014
By UncleAl
from Savage, MT
"This chain with the nice sized ring can work as a choker for clumps of stems as well as being used with the Grubber.
The Ring can be used over a ball on your bumper, or with a clevis. The snap hook stays hooked.
Like any chain, they can be too long or too short sometimes but this one is about the right length for this kind of work."

Hook is the weak link

,
April 30, 2014
By asdfasjg
from Richfield, wi
"I've been using the tugger chain for a while now. First started with a ATV, now using it with a large skid steer. The chain isn't the problem, it's the safety catch on the hook. It wasn't long before something bent the safety catch so it's useless. Now, the chain keeps falling off the tugger. I'll be replacing the hook with a self closing clevis. This is the hook that should have come with the chain. Of course, this clevis cost more than the entire chain assembly, so I can understand why the standard hook was provided in the first place. Maybe it's time for a Xtreme model?"

from killbuck ohio
"Bought this grubber and chain. Very first tree I hooked up the ring broke with very little tension. The shrub didn't even bend more than a couple inches. Maybe it was defective, Didn't make a very good impression when I was bragging to my neighbor to "Hey watch this". If they send me another one I'll review this again"

Pulling Chain

,
October 9, 2012
By Oyoufan
from Houston, TX
"Chain is heavy duty and ring fits nicely on a jack or trailer hitch. Only reason I do not give five stars is that the latch on the hook broke off quite early in the use of the chain. The latch is not necessary, but poorly made. The chain worked well for pulling up wooden fence posts and T posts."

Pulls several saplings together

"The Brush Grubber Tugger Chain Extreme wraps around a group of saplings, a large bush, and tightens as you pull on it. It has tire-chain-like grippers along its chains, and they must be oriented toward the brush in order to grip. It's a bit grubby passing the chain around a multi-stalked bush — you're on the ground, and the brush may be scratchy, but this tool does the job."
