Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

NEARLY 40 years ago the Parsons Chain Co., Ltd., 11, Victoria Street, London, S.W.1, was pioneering nonskid chains. To-day it is still playing a prominent part in maintaining the mobility of transport equipment when traffic might otherwise be disorganized by wintry conditions.

The latest Parsons non-skid chain suitable for light vehicles up to approximately B-cwt. pay-load rating, incorporates a big improvement. On each link of each cross-chain a bar is welded, which gives greater grip and increases the life of the chain very considerably.

We illustrate, however, a chain for

heavier machines. This gives satisfactory adhesion within reasonable limits on snow and ice-bound roads

A20 and on muddy surfaces or slippery grass.

Even a light snowfall may result in difficulty in running to schedule. Machines may experience wheelspin merely in driving in or out of their garages and the resulting delays usually represent a direct financial loss. In such cases the cost of chain equipment fades into insignificance.

Last winter snow chains were in great demand and many operators experienced difficulty in obtaining supplies. Conditions, like those of a year ago, may be upon us any time now, so preparations should be made. There is a Parsons chain to fit every type and make of commercial-vehicle wheel.
