in need of advice.I just recently bought a bobcat m610 and I am a little concerned on how I can tie it down on my trailer. It has brackets on the rear to chain too but nothing on the front. would chaining it down to the loader cross frame work or does someone have a better way.

I will be towing it around 80 miles a trip, I want to be safe and don't want to let it get away from me.

I'd use the rear ones then thread through between the cylinder and the loader frame over the cross memebr in the loader frame or use the cross member to fasten to going to the opposite side away from the cylinder so as not to bend the cylinder. don't forget to put one over the bucket also. One chain on the back with the ends hooked to the trailer with the middle loose on the trailer deck will give you 2 tie downs on the back with 2 binders. 3 chains 5 binders. 5/16th's is heavy enough for that lighter skid steer 3/8th's would give you options for bigger later or other pieces.
Are you sure there is not a loop used for a stop maybe on the bottom front you can hook to or through?

I looked/crawled under and I could not see a any thing. thanks for the tips, the chains would be real close to the cylinders but it might just work.

I always ran chain through the holes on the back
and put a binder on each side and then run a Chain
over and between the bucket and the coupler and
our two binders on that chain as well . That was on
New Holland skid loaders so a bobcat might be
different

using the loader bucket will work fine but under no circumstance put anything close to the rams. just remember at all times what you are pulling.

I am thinking of using the cross member of the loader to tie it down, the State Patrol says I can't use the bucket as a tie down.
