Default Dragline chains

Any of you guys build up dragline chains? I'm looking for a suggestion for wire.

Thanks

It's been years, I've always gone with Stoody 100.

Dragline or drag chain? Impact and abrasion or minimum impact heavy abrasion?

If it is your machine and you have time in the winter to pass some time, by all means weld them up. If you are paying someone premium rate to weld them up. Buy new. Much more profitable.

Thanks, I'll look into that. They aren't too bad yat, so it shouldn't take much to tune them up. The last time I priced new was $ 3500.00, so someone could sit there for a while and weld .
