How do you guy's keep your walk behind mowers from moveing around on your trailers?
3" ratchet strap across the deck to the trailer frame. it takes all of 5 seconds to secure/unsecure it.
Put it in gear.....wheels will lock up.
I keep it in gear too.
a guy in my town used to put his in gear but he doesn't any more since he kept having to replace his tranny every year or so. my WB doesn't weigh enough to hold it from sliding around my trailer unless it's secured. It is also a couple hundred dollar fine for not securing equipment
I have enough equipment on my trailer that it cant move anywhere. Also I use a tandem axle trailer which rides much better than a single.
Currently heavy duty rachet tie downs. But soon either prolockers or fast straps. Can't decide.
Ratchet straps for now, but want something faster and even easier. Looking into ProLockers or Fast straps as well.
ratchet straps for now and it sucks but just putting it in gear is not only bad for the trans but it will still move around
My Ferris Hydro won't move when it's not running. I just set it on the trailer and forget about it.
