    New trailer for the 1025! And a question...

    Just picked up a brand new Car-Mate 18' trailer for my 1025R. 7000lb, 3' tail, radials, brakes on both axles, LED lighting, welded D-ring tie-downs, slide out ramps, PT decking with no side lip. Overall I'm pretty happy at an even $3K out the door.

    My question is what do other 1025R owners suggest for tying down the tractor? Specifically chain sizes, binders, fasten points on the tractor, supplemental ties for BH/Loader.

    Appreciate any advice.

    That is a sweet trailer for what you paid for it. Certainly enough length to work with.

    For tie-downs, I would go with 5/16" Grade 70 transport chain and binders. I am not familiar with the tie down points on the 1025, but there are plenty of earlier posts dealing with just that dating from last fall. I would also get a couple of 2" heavy duty straps to tie down the backhoe and bucket.

    I am a chain guy, 5/16 is the smallest and works well, they are strong enough for anything that doesn't flatten those springs pretty much

    I suppose 4" and maybe 3" straps would probably be effective for a tractor that small, but it would just be passed over, no real point on the frame could it be easily attached.

    Some company just advertised some bolt on tie down eyes for the front of the tractor. I don't think it's Kens Bolt on Hooks nor R2. I'll keep looking.

    I always use chain that is big enough for ANY use,,,

    If you size the chain for only holding the 1 Series,, some other use will pop up, where the chain needs to be heavier,,

    I do have multiple size chains, but, if I am going somewhere,, I only take 3/8" chain,,, just in case.

    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    A few long D ring axle straps can give you additional tie down options. I use a couple when trailering the 3038e to secure chains on the rear axle. They are good for hooking chains to items you wouldn't want to wrap a chain around & don't have a place for a grab hook.

    I use 5/16” chains. Probably could get by with 1/4” , but 5/16 can also be used to tie down cars. I started out with straps, but found they tend to loosen up. I still have them but only use them on things that don’t have wheels.

    Those are a great idea. I have wondered why JD didn't just weld on some hooks in the proper locations.
