I took some extra pics showing how I secured it down, just in case anyone wanted to see.
My chains & binders are rated for 6600 lbs. I used 2 chains & 8 binders on this.
One end of the chain hooks to the outside of the track, which hooks to the binder, which is hooked to the floor. Then I take another binder and go from the inside of the track to the floor. That is to make up the difference of the weight that the chain is not securing.
On any piece of equipment, all attachments must be secured, whether it's a blade, bucket, scraper, etc... So I placed a 2" strap over the arm, which is rated for 3300 lbs. I personally don't consider a strap a securement, it's just there to cover my ass since it's the law.
So with 2 chains & 8 binders on this trackhoe, I have 52800 lbs of securements on a 32040 lb machine. I don't plan on it going anywhere LOL
Pretty simple stuff..........once you learn it
