Hi, All,

thanks for the answers below. I know some say strap, some say chain. For the chain folks- does it matter where I buy it? TSC 3/8 in 70 chain is about $30 less than, say, grainger.... how come? I see used chain on CL- which has, shall we say, uncertain provenance? Same for load binders.

Is TSC ok? Somewhere else smarter to go?

thanks

Bill

I would agree with the grade numbers. If it meets the grade you should be good.

As for the binders, I'll reiterate checking with your state laws.

Currently we can still use the snap over type, but they're trying to make it
so we have to have the ratcheting type to be legal. Maybe they're worth the

extra money if you're getting a new set anyway?

If they're in good shape, used ones may be of better quality than cheap new ones.

I use chains and the snap over type binders. I always chain as heavy or
heavier to the rear than I do to the front.
My reasoning is that my truck isn't going to snatch the trailer out from
under the tractor on take off, but if I had to slam on the brakes, well......

Luckily I've never had an incident either way.
One other thought is insurance. If you're hauling, say, to a tractor show.

Laws vary, but here my truck insurance covers the trailer, but not the load

and not the car following me if that load comes off going down the highway.

Just something you may want to check on.

William,
I got my 70 chain at Rural King when they had a mail in rebate with 10 or 15% off everything in the store. I think I paid $60 for 16 ft.

What I do is use chain at the rear of the tractor. To tighten, I pull forward. The chain stops me where I want it to be. Then I use 2 DOT approved straps to pull the tractor forward. 2 more straps to pull forward at a 45 degree angle and 2 more straps at the rear of the tractor to pull at 45 degrees backward. Works for me.
George

Also check out places like prime fasteners, alma bolt, Midwest fasteners, etc. They are supply houses, but typically sell to individuals for less $ than they do to contractors if paying in cash.

Be careful of USED binders. Look them over very good. Some have been abused and have serious issues, and that is probably why they are for sale.

ditto old. if it specs the grade and is cheaper.. go for it.

also.. if/when i use chain.. to keep from maring paint on good machines.. i run the chain thru an old fire hose.. or sock type material.. you can get hyd line sheath protectors..e tc..

Look at the specs on that chain and if it meets D.O.T. numbers your good to go. As for boomers or binders which ever you want to call them good for the heavy duty ones and the best are the ones that work like the center link of your tractor since you can tighten those down tighter then the over center ones. Also if you use the over center ones keep your fingers clear or you may have a doctor tape you fingers up due to breaking them

As long as the links have a 70 stamped on them you should be good to go with a graded chain. I bought my chains and binders at Harbour Freight and have had no issues with them.
