Off-Road Urethane
Wheel Chocks


Designed specifically for the mining industry.

The newest addition to our MONSTER™ Chock Series is CHOCKZILLA™! These extra heavy duty wheel chocks are specifically designed for the mining industry. They are strong, safe, and easy to handle - yet they hold the largest haul trucks. Each chock is made from tough urethane and includes four side handles and a carrying strap on the back for easy transport. They will not cause tire damage and are virtually unaffected by oils, fuels, or solvents. For added safety and convenience, "How to Use" guidelines are molded into the back of each chock in both English and Spanish.

Optional Transport Cart is available as an accessory for these chocks.
