Tech/Engineering - Forestry / Wood / Timber / Tire chains
English term or phrase: Tag and cross chains
Describing tire chains for heavy forestry equipment, the terms "tag chain" and "cross chain" are used very often.
What are they? Here is the context:

"BABAC's Ring chains provide excellent traction for operating in mud or snow. All models feature alloy lugs that, unlike most other chains, are butt and wrap welded for unsurpassed strength and durability. Tag and cross chains are made from through hardened 10B21 Boron steel, side chains of 1022 hardened steel."
