Less than 10K miles on Crown Q-Trac chain...

I put a load of firewood in the back of my J20 last night. A little under a cord of mixed hard wood so probably 3000 pounds. As I pull out onto the road I hear that old familiar Clack Clack Clack of the Q-Trac chain slipping.

I rebuilt this case with a Crown chain assuming I would get 25-30k miles out of it. I was ok with that because I don't put a lot of miles on the truck. I installed the case in 2014 and only got about 7,500...

If we gave the chinese children a little more rice do you think we could get a chain that would go more than 10k miles???

Crown parts have never remotely been related to quality parts.

We have a Made in the USA chain now:

These are remade to the same specs as the original Morse chains, and will last MUCH longer than the cheap chinese units.

Also, we have new cones in case you need those too (also Made in the USA):
