    I am trying to take the chains off my rock hound 72A, does anyone know how to undo the chains? I have broken 3 heavy chain breakers trying to get the pins out. I need to reuse the chain, so I don't want to torch it off. Has anyone ever taken these off before? Any help,tips, & tricks are appreciated! THANK YOU!!

    My 72B units have a master link on all three chains.

    if you cant find the master, grind the head of one pin off and drive it out, replace with bolt and lock nut
