Chaining Tractors Down

Beth V

We've hauled steam engines since 1966 as well as other equipment. Dad had 2 trailers custom built. We block the drivers of every engine with 4x4 wooden blocks. I like to lift the engine about an inch off of the trailer because they will work down--and then you tighten the chains again.

Never steel on steel.....


Didn't we do a thread about this a few years ago?
THIS thread was started almost 5 years ago. . . (or will be five years old in a couple months anyway)

I see the other one was started 4 1/2 years before that too, but it's still good information and worth bringing up again.



Make shure you use Carpet or rug inside of the wheels were the chains will sit as the chains can make a mess of cast wheels over time
