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.
