In reading about how to safely tie down a tractor to a trailer, most people seem to put four cross chains on the tractor and then chain down the implements. However, when I read the manual for my loader it says to not chain it down. Why would it say that? I have found any guidance one way or another for the FEL.
Operator's Manual OMLVU23711 260 Backhoe
Transporting Tractor With Backhoe
NOTE: Backhoe bucket should be lowered to trailer bed if possible.
1. Put wheel chocks against tractor wheels. Chain tractor securely to trailer bed.
2. Do not attach hold-down chains to any part of the backhoe assembly. Lower the backhoe bucket to the trailer bed, if possible
