    Looking for ideas on how you secure your ZTR for travel in an enclosed trailer?

    I was looking at some wheel straps. They look quick and easy, but the mower has to be parked exactly in the right spot to secure although that might not be a bad thing.

    Others are using cargo straps, but from where to where and how many?

    I use FastStraps, but there are plenty of threads on here about this subject. I'm sure you'll get plenty of ideas here.

    Ditto .... roll it on and put the parking brake on. My ZTR isn't moving unless the trailer flips over!

    I have 24" sides on the bed and I just set the e brake on each mower. I specifically built the bed with high sides so it wouldn't be an issue. I would go to Northern Tool and purchase those cargo holders and mount them on the floor if I were having an issue.

    If in the enclosed I pull the brake and let her ride. If on the open trailers I gets one strap across front and off I go.
