Most equipment I have ever strapped down has been bigger equipment and around the axle by chains and about as tight as you can get. I will be doing some roading this year with my skid steer and I noticed I see allot of people strapping them down around here versus chaining them down. I know with the straps I need to cover all the sharp edges with something. Would it be a better idea for me to use straps than chains and rachet binders. I guess another concern I have is I notice especially on various brands of skid steers that the places designed to fasten the machine down does not look to be that thick of steel. Just wondering if I use chains and rachet binders if I could tighten them to much and bend the steel or brake the welds on the machine. I dont like stuff to move so I thought I would find out what you guys do. This would be on a 250 Series II Deere.
