Tips and Suggestions? Light and small, so minimal needed?

I've said before: barely enough is
not enough!!. Won't need half inch
heavy grade chains, but, using 700
pounds rated low quality straps is
living dangerous. Find a in between
securing mode

its only light and small until somebody pulls out in front of you and you have to hit the brakes hard, then the 8n hops the front of the trailer and joins you in your truck, my jubilee is basically the same tractor size wise a little bigger and 4 or 5oo lbs heavier, i mow with it and haul it several times a day, the law says 4 chains to a load, first 2 go outside the radius rods around the front axle unless you have installed hooks or clevis on the axle, then attach to the trailer, and boom it down, just make them reasonably tight here or you'll just drag the tractor forward,now the rear, will depend on what you have to work with on the back, if you have the 11 hole draw bar on the lift arms that's minimal to attach to, the reason is, the lift can float up, so you want a good downward angle on the chains to the trailer to prevent that, if you have the under the rear end housing factory draw bar that's much stronger, and you can put a clevis in the hitch hole to put the chain thru, after you secure the chain to both sides of the trailer behind the tractor,use a boomer to tighten the chains, this time tighten it, use a cheater on the boomer and get it tight! it sounds complicated but its not, it took me longer to type this than it does to secure my tractor, now if the tractor has nothing back there your only option is to use the axle itself to secure the back end , or go to tsc or similar store, even carquest auto parts stores carry that 11 hole drawbar that fits the lift arms, if you have nice paint

The law is two chains one front and one back on
any load under 10,000 pounds plus you have to
strap the implement or chain it and if it has a loader
you have to run a chain or strap over the bucket .
Two 5/16 chains and binders would strap an 8N
down tight enough if you do it right you could pick
thr whole thing up with track hoe shake it by the
tongue of the trailer and it won?t go any where

Thank you for the input everyone! Ended up with two chains and binders off 3-point type draw bar heading towards the rear of trailer, and two 3330-lbs. straps off two 3-point arm armpits heading towards the front of trailer. Held great!

Sounds like you did a good job. I am curious though about how you tested it.

So you strapped/chained the bejeezus out of the rear of the tractor and did nothing to secure the FRONT.

Even SVCummins who mocks anyone who gives advice on how to secure a load said two chains, one front and one rear... It's just common sense. You used four on the rear?

Easy there Barnyard, are you entirely sure that the OP was referring to the three point lift arms? I got the impression that he was referring to the front ends of the radius rods.
