    Tie Down Locations

    Okay, hauled by 1025R for the first time the other day, and I really think it needs some tie down locations on the front. Has anyone installed eye bolts or anything to the frame to make it easier to haul it? I could put on some Ken's hooks on the loader, but I'd prefer to secure to the frame of the tractor. Plus, can't scratch the paint :-)

    Never been a fan of eye-bolts! They are not the strongest steel, and can open up. If you've got a friend at the Telephone or Power Company, see if they can salvage a couple of the fully closed "U" Loops that they use. ~Scotty

    Oops! Agree 100% on the eye bolts. I meant more the lifting eyes that are forged and have a flange.

    Lifting eyes are not ideal for securing a load. They're designed to take strain in line with the threads, basically trying to pull the threads straight out of a hole. If you put a side load on them by pulling at an angle the way we do with chains hauling equipment, lifting eyes will bend. After enough uses, they will break. They're also designed and rated for full thread engagement, where the eye threads fully down into a block. Using a nut on the threads would not engage as many threads and would significantly decrease what the eye will hold.

    The shackle through the frame method that Haze posted looks really nice. You could also consider chaining to the brush guard where it attaches to the frame.

    The tractor should be secured independent of the loader. Attaching to the rear of the tractor and the loader bucket is a bad plan, just like attaching only to the front of the tractor and a rear implement.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^What he said^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Lifting eyes have been abused since the day they were invented. They are great for in-line pulls or fairly close, but the moment you go at an angle greater than about 25* they lose a considerable amount of strength. 56 is absolutely right, don't use lifting eyes unless you are pulling on them in a pretty straight, in-line with the hole it's threaded into. Don't risk your multi-thousand dollar investment in a lifting eye at a bad angle.

    For the rear I have a clevis in the hole under the PTO (draw bar).

    For the front I have the weight bracket bolted to the frame and loop the chain through. To keep the chain off paint I raise the loader and set the bucket down on the digging edge (dump position).

    On my 2305 I loop an axle strap around the front of the frame and then hook my chain/ ratchet tie down to that. I use one on each front corner.

    Here is how I strapped mine in using heavy nylon ratchet straps. I hauled it about 300 miles round trip.









    I would haul it this way again. There were no sharp edges on the nylon straps. If I do see that becomes a problem, I will stick a rag between the strap and the metal edge.

    Technically, you are quite illegal with that setup by DOT standards. Since your not hauling commercially they may not ever say anything, but...

    I'm not trying to be the safety police, just trying to inform.
