    Hauling my MCUT

    After seeing some pics this morning, it got me thinking about how I haul my tractor. Am I crazy overkill because I chain my tractor from 4 corners when I haul it?

    I'm guilty of using the tractor chains over or through the implement as long as it's flat on the trailer deck. I agree separate chains on the implement are better. I do use chains and heavy straps. Straps are on the front because chains would take off too much paint on the loader.

    I also check everything after driving a short distance. Usually one chain or strap has loosed up a bit even when they are cranked pretty tight at the start.

    3 or 4 chains depending on how far I'm going. Plus strapping down loader and rear implement. Pretty easy to do when you figure out how and where to strap things. Axle straps on the front make that easy as long as whatever else on the front of the trailer allows for a good angle on the chains.

    Crazy is the person who will not spend a few hundred dollars to prevent their $20K to $30K investment from rolling off a trailer.

    That’s not the half of it. Tractor coming loose from the trailer and killing someone.

    I hauled equipment commercially as well as my own. My main objective each time was to envision the trailer turning over at speed. Will the equipment stay with the trailer?

    When I bought my 6'X10' landscape trailer. The first thing I did was have them install 4 D rings in the corners. Before picking it up. Already had decent straps from towing motorcycles.
