    I just purchased a Kubota B20 and I need some advice about the proper way to tie it down to the trailer for transportation. I need to go about 150 miles on the interstate with it.

    For something that size (I have a BX24) I would go with some chains on at least two corners (around the axles is ok) to the trailer deck (d-rings or trailer tie downs) and chain binders to ratchet it down nice and snug. You could also use the heavy duty ( I forget the weight rating, wide yellow) ratchet straps on all four corners. I use one of the yellow heavy duty ratchet straps on the rear of my BX24 (across the backhoe section where your feet go) and a smaller ratchet strap on each side of the front from the grill guard to the d-rings in my trailer deck.
