    just thought of this tonight while i was fixing a broken lift chain....when you replace your chain, leave it about 24" longer than you need and put a chain hook on the loose end. next time your chain breaks you can attach the hook to the broken end and reattach the chain to the lift arm.....just a quick "in the field fix" i thought of....everyone else is probably already doing it and i'm the last to know lol.....jay

    Yep. That, or carry a bolt and nut to go through it...That way, unlike a hook, it won't come undone when you drop the plow a few times. This will keep you plowing. :)
