Then there is grade 43 with 5000 lb working strength ($3.80/ft).
I guess having too strong a chain is better than having one that breaks, but do I need the 5000lb working strength?
Is this in addition to already having a recovery strap??
Buy a good recovery
hooks... made for recovering vehicles. Look at the 3" x 20' or 3" x 30' x 30,000 lbs.
You can find them in the $40 to $80 range.
