    the g stands for G force or multiply the weight by the number in front of the g.

    If machine weighs 10k pounds 10,000 x .5g = 5000 pounds. The chain will need to rated higher than that.


    There are the rules.
    Anything over 10k has to have a min of 4 tiedowns. Under 10k can go with 2 tiedowns if I read it right.LOL
