    I have a 6 ton bobcat 337 and i always put one 3/8 chain through the towing loop in the middle of your undercarriage and 2 up front one on each side of the blade then one to hold down the bucket to the deck ive been though many of scales in all over ontario and never had a problem the main thing they care about is your chains are good for half your load weight. Best way for to figure out how to tie it down just look in your manual it will have a diagram how to tie it down and mto can suck it if you tie it down like that.
