Tech/Engineering / adjustable chains for dump trucks and booms
German term or phrase: Zweiersprung
The required chain length for non-standard containers can be determined by trial and error.

Do not drill or knot the chains. Only if the chain is correctly adjusted can it be ensured that motion goes perfectly.

Die Ketten beim Verkürzen oder Verlängern aus der Verkürzungsklaue nehmen und nur im Zweiersprung versetzen.

Für häufig benutzte Kettenlängen farbige Markierungen an der Verstellkette anbringen.
