    Picked up this beast of a track frame at port of baltimore today. Supposedly goes to a 6015 cat. Dang thing weighs 46k , i was finishing up and the driver thats taking the other one showed up . headed to the windy state of wyoming.

    What do u guys think of the securement? I never hauled this before but just threw chains on until it looked good. All 4 corners directly secured to the chain holes on frame and then 6 chains over top, going to other side.

    If those
    if those are 3/8 chains and 5400 pound binders like they look you have enough securement for a 86,400 pound piece. You’re more then fine. Good job driver.

    Personally I would have just went with the for corner chains and a few straps.

    I hauled a few of those tracks, the only thing different that I did was to take a 6x6 timber wedge it under the front and back. Then take a chain and pull the timbers into the track.

    Probably not necessary but I had the timbers and it made me feel better. By the way, it road like a dream.

    Yes 3/8 chains , not sure wat wll rating on the binders, guess i should look. Im used to running 5/16 chains n binders , just upgraded and spent a couple grand and bought all new equipment . I always been known to put overkill on everything lol oh well, where would u put straps on it , just over top of the track?

    Those looks like the “cheap” 5/16-3/8 binders with a wll of 5400lbs that are standard issue at my company. I have rounded up 6 or so 3/8-1/2 binders that have a wll of 9200lbs. That way I get my full rating on a 3/8” g70 chain. But I also pull trailers with higher rated securement points then the flatbed you're pulling.

    As far as the straps I would have put them where you put your 6 chains in the middle. With the rubber under them also. Chains are heavy, straps are light!
