I have a Bessacarr E425/Fiat Ducato 2.2.
I have been caught out a couple of times while parked on the even the slightest of slopes when the front wheels lost traction...especially on wet grass.
I was thinking about buying a set of snow chains that I could quickly put on if it ever happens again.
Has anyone tried this....do they work ???

It worked for me once, unfortunately at the destruction of a grass pitch which was well ploughed up as I got off.
I did tell them before I was pitched up I would need help to get off, but it was park there or leave.
The chains took some cleaning afterwards.

Put a couple of Waffle Boards down and park front wheels on them. As I like everything to have more than one use with a few blocks of wood they make excellent ramps.

They do work BUT, as with without chains, they will either work, or they won’t.

What I mean by that is that if the wheel(s) start to slip (spin) you must stop immediately otherwise you will only dig a hole.

I agree, I always park on planks of wood to:
  1. Spread the load to Prevent the wheels from forming a well/cup in the grass
  2. Enable a straight forward drive off the planks.
The challenge with driving off grass is getting the initial movement. Once moving the risk of then getting stuck/wheel spin is much reduced. Planks deal with this issue.
