    Check out www.snowclaws.com I thinking about buying a pair for when those special times occur that you need chains. There made from polyurethanes.

    Hmm....I don't know,they don't reccomend them on ice and i didn'e see their "low" price?For pure traction it's hard to beat steel chains,i wonder if they would see to much stress while plowing:confused:

    We had checked out the sno-claws as an option to driving over to pull out another truck if it was stuck. The price wasn't low enough for that use. I guess if you plow by yourself they could help out if you were stuck, but I don't think they are ready for the demands of plowing. Here is the pricing page if anyone is interested http://www.flex-trax.com/site/521855/page/45031

    update

    I called flex-trax today, they are the one's that make the snow claws. Asked them how they did on ice, replied - they would be better than anything on the market. Asked how they would hold up plowing snow, replied - no problem, they strapped a set on a monster truck and they could not tear them apart. They said that they work on hydraulic principle.
