    Would you like to ride down the road alongside the guy with skid loaders secured with only straps?

    I didn’t think so. :cool:

    If people can be persuaded not to do that by reading here, than so much the better.
     
    NYCB2A, NYCgorilla, Badmon and 8 others Thank this.

    I'm curious Mack, does this mean that mean when we see another member post a picture of something we deem unsafe are we free to point it out?

    Sure as long as you comply with our rules, and you should know what those are by now.

    Yes there is!

    Slotted coils can come apart in a real in a hurry on today's roads, especially if the banding isn't at proper tension. So 'hog ties' are a critical part of the securement!

    I would much rather depend on my hog tie chains than some cheap banding. But I don't count my hog tis in with my aggregate WLL. Coils are still tied down like a single, just have an extra cabin and binder or two.
     
    Highway Sailor and Gunner75 Thank this.
