RUD provides a range of traction and snow chains for the mining, quarrying and forestry industries.

Our tyre protection, traction and snow chains have three distinct wear levels to provide three zones of wear resistance.

Diamond-shaped wear links provide both traction and protection, while middle reinforcement links increase stability, traction and wear volume. Sharp edges on the outer surface area also help increase traction. Each link has extra-wide contact areas to help distribute force and extend the wear life of the connecting rings.
