I have to agree, Bob, that's not tied down very well at all. It will probably hold front-to-back, but the tractor will go skidding off the side in an instant.

The stake pockets along the sides are where you're supposed to anchor to.

Maybe I'm wrong too, but this is what I'd do:

1. Right front wheel to nearest stake pocket on LEFT rub rail at 45 degree angle to the front.

2. Left front wheel to nearest stake pocket on RIGHT rub rail at 45 degree angle to the front.

3. Right rear wheel to nearest stake pocket on LEFT rub rail at 45 degree angle to the rear.

4. Left rear wheel to nearest stake pocket on RIGHT rub rail at 45 degree angle to the rear.

That's how I see heavy equipment chained down, with the chains crossed over and pulling from the opposite side.

Bob I'm not positive that I can see it correctly, but it looks like your rear attach points are cross pieces of your self cleaning beaver tail. That would not be legal in the book that they gave me, which states that your chains/straps have to attached to a point designed for that purpose as in the pockets between the frame and rub rail. If someone panic stopped in front of you with no warning it is not likely that the 1 and 1/2 angle stock would hold.

Here in Western Kansas and Eastern Colorado Straps seem to be OK if rated properly.
I normally use 3 straps rated at 4ooolbs each for my 4500 lb Oliver

In the pic's of the farmall with the straps streched out that long, that will keep it from rolling forward or backward sure won't hold much side to side chains hooked that way would not be any better.

5 miles or 500-doesn't matter. It's the point of impact that matters and how it is tied down at that instant. A car can pull out in front of you a mile down the road and will it hold? The strap on the front wrapped around the jack only counts as one strap also.

I've hauled my tractors with straps for many years, never a problem with the law or anything else. I use big honkin' 4 inch straps with chain leads, one on each corner. I will never haul with a single strap or chain on each end. A chain looped through a drawbar and attached to the trailer with both ends is not the same as two chains!

My dad has been hauling his 1967 Camaro for years with straps at all four corners. He has been stopped plenty of times to have the load and truck/trailer checked over the years and not once has anybody said it needed chains instead of straps.

Loading and setup looks great but the others are right, nylon straps have no place on something with wheels! You need 4 chains and binders; one on every corner.

Nice setup but around here, That load would get you a hefty fine. With wheels, we have to use rated chains not straps.

I prefer chains and a binder on each one to those straps. I just don't trust them to hold a heavy tractor.
