I don't know how these prices compare to what you can get locally

www.awdirect.com/load-binders/

I wouldn't buy the cheapy ratchet binders get the best you can buy so you don't have to deal with ones that don't ratchet properly.

Load securement you don't cheap out on.

The lowbedders around here have gone to ratchet binders and after seeing how much safer they are I won't go back to lever binders.

Lever binders are teeth removers or do some unwanted surgery to your face. I have used lever binders for years always have to be carefull I have had a few close calls with the cheater pipe slipping off.

Your pulling on a cheater pipe thats hard on your back.

Keep the rachet binder lubed up and out of the dirt they are trouble free. If they have a dry screw they are miserable to use :laugh:

I watched a lowbed guy today strap down a Case backhoe he had ratchet binders. It sucked the tires down you could see it was pulled tight. A lever binder you would have to pull like a sucker to get the chain tight.

I have chained down backhoes they are a pain in the gluteous maximus.

Safety is more important than time savings yes it takes a little longer with ratchets but you still have your front teeth :drinkup:
