I'd over look several faults if a bus I was considering had automatic chains - I anticipate a lot of cold weather driving, some of it on back roads that can get pretty clogged with snow

I have them on my bus. I had never seen them before so I did a little research.

What I heard from folks that have used them is that they are somewhat helpful in light snow. They were of the opinion that anything over 3"-4" of snow on the road and they became ineffective.

I will probably never find out.......

I am doing this for FUN.,... If there is 4" of snow on the road, I will be using the parking brake, not the auto chains.

you can always put on a jacket when you're cold, but there are only so many clothes you can remove when it's hot
