I do about the same as showcrop. On the wide front ends, I use straps with chains on the back of the tractors.

I tend to on most tractors I haul (1850 Olivers size and down) Run one chain around the front axle to the front two corners of the the trailer (or forward to stake pockets if the load is centered back over the axles) then another chain in the back looped around the back axle, or swinging drawbar guide, etc running back. Then bind both ends.....

OR, chain in front as above, then put tractor in neutral, and use two heavy straps (one for each side) to "ratchet" the rear of the tractor back. once again, with straps attached to corners of the trailer.
I've hauled all sorts of stuff from engines, to tractors, to large mills & industrial equipment. only thing I've ever lost was a 5.9 cummins off my flatbed pickup 5 miles from home. Reason? I used a pair of cheap 1" straps to "just hold er down" and the motor snapped em. But, didn't do much damage. Learned my lesson. 1" straps are for holding my spare trailer tire and ramps. nothing more.
