In Reply to: Chain size posted by John Schoenauer on December 26, 2011 at 18:40:05:
This is just my 2 cents,I flat bedded for close to 20 years running 48 states and up here in Canada.Most of my chains were 3/8 x16" grade 70. Had some 7/16 x 16 for bigger stuff. Used 3/8 ratchet boomers and 7/16 with big chain.used short 4-5" chains with hook on one end for tail chain,never broke a chain,BUT I always put more than needed for my own piece of mind.Saw way too many hauling a loader or dozer with one chain on front and one on rear,just asking for trouble.If you cross chain both ends even short 4-5" lengths will work.It"s WAY better to overdo it than not,.......
