Winter often means snow-covered and icy roads. Experienced truckers know that the lighter the load, the less traction the tires have. Even trucks hauling heavy loads can lose traction in snow and ice. One of the most important things about driving a commercial motor vehicle during adverse weather conditions is to maintain vehicle traction. Ice, snow, and high winds all work towards reducing traction as well as visibility.

Tire chains are one of the best tools to help maintain traction when the road surfaces are covered in winter precipitation. In this video we will show you how to install tire chains on your commercial vehicle. Extreme conditions are not the best time to learn how to install tire chains, so inspect them and practice installing prior to needing to actually use them!

Please remember, even though you might have great traction and the experience to drive in less-than-perfect road conditions, the other driver might not!

As we can see this semi was driving down the road, when suddenly his front tire called it quit which caused him to lost control over his truck.

Unfortunately his truck went off the road, and as you can see on the video which was recorded by his dashcam, he crashed straight into a house near the road.

I can only say one thing, I WISH NO ONE WAS IN THE HOUSE!

Dave does a demonstration of how to chain up with a set of singles: A step by step basic demo.
Chaining up isn’t a fun job, but it is something drivers should know how to do, just in case.
Most often, it’s better to wait out a mandatory chaining. By the time you install your chains, drive slowly with them on, the trucks that didn’t chain up, will arrive at the same time as you at the bottom of the hill.
Still a skill you should be familiar with as a professional driver.
