Can somebody explain the difference between working load and break strength of tie down straps and why they advertise both?
Also if you use multiple straps is the working load cumulative or should each strap be higher than your load?
For example lets say a tractor weights 2500 lbs. Should each strap have a working load over 2500 lbs, or if you use 2 straps can they both have a working load of 2000 and you will be safe because the total 4000 working load is higher than 2500 load weight?
I have always tried to have each strap have a working load higher than the load weight. I'm in the market for some new straps now and really don't want or need 25 or 30 foot straps again, but all of the shorter straps have a lower working load weight. This has me pondering the above questions.
