Tire Treads.  These are 30" x 186" long rubber treads.  L: Den  Click Here for Tread Pricing>>

Q: What would be some good "repurposes" for these big, heavy rubber treads with great knobby lugs?  Submit Ideas>>
"Arborists could use these to repair large trees with spit limbs/trunks. Perhaps would need them in an area devastated by bad weather (Ice & wind) for bulk usage." - Scott Creech

"Turf protectors for moving equipment over at landscaping & Construction sites." David Wells

"Seems like the tire tread would make  a great instant pathway- almost looks like tiles- slipproof. I can see it as a walkway through a soggy garden with ferns and flowers." - Mikal

"These treads would offer great traction for our cattle on the scales or at the exit of our squeeze chutes where traction is always a problem." - Burt Allen

Steel Cable.  L: Chi, Den, Atl  Click Here for Steel Cable Sizes and Prices>>

repurposedBUYER: We sold several spools of steel cable to a wood treating facility.  They cut the steel cable into lengths and then use the cable as "spacers" between the wood so the chemicals completely permeate the wood on all four sides.  

*A,C,E - The steel cable has uniform thickness for the spacers, the steel holds up well to the chemicals used in treating the wood...the cable has all the Attributes, Characteristics, andEngineering (A.C.E.) required to make long lasting spacer.
