Is there an automatic snow chain system, like Onspot, available for my vehicle? This system is attached to the rear axle with a bracket on each side. Due to the tough environment at its location (bolted to the drive axle), it must be very sturdy. There is a specially adapted bracket kit for your vehicle. Here is how you find the correct one.
As a fleet manager, running a cost effective and efficient fleet safely is paramount to its success. This is a challenge that must be faced and overcome on a daily basis. When presented with any number of external forces out of the control of the fleet operator, then this process becomes even more difficult. The ability to run a fleet in inclement weather mainly snow and ice conditions is one such challenge.
When it comes to the Onspot automatic snow chain system there are many advantages. Through the simple push of a dashboard switch the chain wheels are engaged providing the driver with traction on snow and ice. It is not necessary for the driver to get out of the vehicle and manually strap chains on the tires. The driver can stay in the cab of the vehicle, avoiding the harsh winter conditions, the dangers of chaining up on the side of the road, and the overall physical exertion associated with conventional chains. This is all well and good for the driver.
The wait is over and the Onspot automatic snow chain system has arrived. Soon traction on snow and ice will be as simple as flipping a dashboard mounted switch. Gone are the days of having to get out in inclement weather and manually “throw iron”. This is a tremendous benefit for any driver, but what about the mechanic?
Why should anyone invest in an automatic snow chain system? Existing choices for increasing traction in slippery conditions have long been in use. Read more here about all the options.
I’ve worked with Onspot for the past five years and the most common question I still receive is “what do you guys do?”
The short answer is yes. Automatic snow chains are utilized by various industries and approved by governments worldwide. Read more here.
Of course, when hazardous conditions exist, schools are closed, and no buses are on the road. However, when caught unexpectedly in or even after a significant winter weather event, bus drivers take on the responsibility of transporting the children safely. How do they do this?
