Rachet Straps

I just bought a brand new Gravely 260 ZTR that weighs around 1,200 pounds. I need to get bigger straps that will not break with this much weight. I am kind of confused on how to figure out if the strap will work. I found these 2" straps for a good price - https://www.ratchetstraps.com/2-ratc...-vinyl-s-hooks Let me know if they will work. I like the S hooks because they wont scratch the paint.

Thanks,

the ones you posted only have a 900 lb.working load limit as a complete unit ,they would probably work just fine as a pair ,but why trust your new mower to a crappy strap when a good quality one is literally a few bucks more .I bought some kinedine 4000 lb working load limit ones last week for $15.00 each ,and just one strap can handle your mower and a few of his friends .
