if you don't mind someone asking why so much chain?

have you considered using galvanized cable?
if you could use galvanized cable you could use smaller diameter for maybe 1/3 or less of the cost and a fraction of the weight. Easy to roll and easy to store.

No worries. I have a number of things to fix that use 1/4" sized chain both at home (3sets of tire chains) and at the farm (stall cleaner system and a conveyor system) and a couple other implements here and there as well as I want some spare (cheaper to buy lots in one go)

Ringball in Winnipeg if they retail sell would be a good place to try.
