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.
Checkout the North American Cargo Securement Standard.
It is my understanding that standard is what you will be judged from. It is also great reading to develop a good understanding of how to think when securing equipment.
