I am planning to take my ZTU to a tractor show and was wondering how similar folks have strapped the front end of a ZTU down to the trailer. I don't see any apparent place on the front end to hook the chains to. Any suggestions? Thanks

I put the chain on the tires around the pedestal

I have nylon lifting straps that I use on painted parts.

Screw eye bolts into the threaded holes under the radiator and use a clevis to connect to a chain on each side of tractor.

SWMolines, Just to be sure I get this right: I assume you are referring to the two threaded holes that are below and just to the front of the radiator. It looks like those holes take a 3/4 bolt. I hope I can find an eyebolt that large. Thanks for your input.

I was referring to the ones one the sides of the front end casting (group of three bolts on each side) where the cultivator mounts attach.

if you can't find eyebolts large enough, then bolt something like this on each side.

Another idea. I bolted a couple short pieces of chain on the sides and just hook on to secure.
