So just picked up a Cat 268B and a Zieman 20ft beaver tail equipment trailer at a auction, as well as a spare bucket and backhoe attachment... Any advice on the best way to strap all this stuff down? I need to buy some chains and binders, already have 4 heavy duty ratchet straps from my car trailer.
I was thinking getting 2 15ft chains and binders to tie the tractor down with and transport with the hoe on it, then strapping down the 2 buckets. Figured it would be easier to have the backhoe on the tractor than trying to tie it down. Or would I be better with 3-4 chains to tie the skid down with? Heading down next week to pick it up (7 hour drive) so any advice would be appreciated.
