JoeD said:i haul our tractors from home to farm and back and i always pull one chain foward and one backward( when i was on the boat that was called a towing line and a backing line ) makes sense to me i hauled heavy equipment for a lot of years that is how i tied them down if they could roll or move and i never lost anything i drive five or six miles and pull over and check my chains.
That's what I do. I know some people like to have 4 per tractor but I cannot always find a place to put 4. If i have a place too ill put some extras on there or if its something real heavy then i will. I do know that no one fully agrees on how to haul stuff on sites like this. lol
