Now be sure to drive well below the posted limit and remove all the chains. I've been noticing lately skid loaders don't need chains so I doubt a log skidder would.

They probably don't have a "no money down and zero percent interest" deal on chains and binders.

Seems I get behind a new ahole every day. I’ve got a stack of skidded coils on the front of my trailer wrapped in slick paper and dripping oil, guess i should take the chains off and drive 10mph.
Man, I’m with you on this. I spend a decent amount of time moving equipment, lumber, and all sorts of random stuff for chicken houses. I do all the CDL work for my brothers company.
The guys I work with harass me about being OCD about securing stuff. I tell them you will never be sorry for “over securing” something, but have it under secured and the least that can happen is you get a ticket and the worst is some one could get killed.
I get amazed at stuff people considered secured on almost a daily basis. If I were a DOT officer that’d probably be the #1 thing I’d focus on.
I wish people would realize the 1 chain on the front, and 1 on the rear (and that’s more than some people use) is NOT a secure piece of equipment! If either one comes loose that thing can move the full arc of the other chain.
I tell the guys, a minimum of 4 attachment points on a piece of equipment, and each attachment point is good ONLY if the other 3 will stay tight if one comes loose.
I could go on and on on this subject........

I get looked at all the time for how many chains and binders I use on loads. Going to the tractor shows I always make sure that every tractor has 4 tie down points, it is a maze of chains on the trailer, but I never have to worry about one coming loose or getting into another tractor. When you stack a trailer full of narrow front tractors, they can be as close as two inches to each other.
