Low budget mud traction

mud tractionOne good way to increase the traction on your golf cart is to add some ice chains.

The last few days have been wetter than usual and the extra mud presents a small navigation challenge.

I discovered today that it's best to remove the entire wheel in order to loop the connectors around and weave the whole thing together. Snug it up as tight as it will allow to minimize the extra bits from rubbing on the mud shield.

We used a few feet of synthetic rope for some additional holding power.  The whole operation took less than an hour and increased the mud pulling factor by at least 50 percent.
