This piece of gear is always on my farm buggy because I often have unanticipated needs for it, a 3/8 chain with a clevis grabber hooks. From hauling fallen limbs, to dragging cattle panels, to dragging fill-in-the-blank whatever. See this link as an example from Harbor Freight. https://www.harborfreight.com/material-handling/ropes-chains-hoists/chains-hooks/3-8-eighth-inch-x-14-ft-truckers-chain-97711.html

Yup, definite must. A farm vehicle without a chain is like a trailer without ratchet straps!

I'm partial to a short one and a long one, lots of implements are a cinch to move slung under the forks using just a couple feet, and wrangling the 20ft chain every time gets old!

I had that very thought! I bought a 10' and a 5' with hooks on every end. Very handy, especially when you're in a tight spot and trying to drag 15' of chain.
