An LX277 is listed as weighing 487 lbs.; 560 for the AWS. In practice you want to be able to reasonably restrain a load in a collision scenario, so figure at least 4 gs. This would require the capacity to restrain about 2,000 lbs. in any direction. I would suggest using 4 straps; one on each corner of the tractor at some substantial point such as axle or other part of frame. Using a rounded weight of 500 lbs. figure 2,000 lbs. restraining capacity. 4 of the rachet straps you have tied down as described should be conservatively safe and adequate to hold the tractor in place with a little fudge factor. Better safe than sorry. :thumbsup: Make sure the straps are all snug but not over kill. This may seem like over doing it, in a sudden stoppage the tractor can become a missle with incredible energy. In a severe impact; even these measure would not be able to hold it but let's stay within reason.
Jody, You need to contact the ever-so-humble Tractorguy. He is the sole maker and user of this equipment. Unfortunately his Wisconsin hotties are not included.Originally posted by jodyand
