    So i bought a small excavator (12k) and plan to transport it some. So i want to go ahead and get all new grade 70 chain and chain binders just to make sure everything is secure. After a brief amount of research, it seems like a large amount of the grade 70 chain and binders are import! Just me but over the years i've always questioned the quality of most of the import steel, chains, binders, straps, etc.... and have seen some break and bend way before it's stated load rating.

    My Question: Can yaw recommend to me some quality USA Made Grade 70 3/8" Chain and Chain Binding manufacturers?

    Thanks,
    Southernhick

    Columbus McKinnon and Lebus are American made. At least the last batch we bought were stamped USA.

    Tarpstop.com and uscargocontrol.com both give options for USA made chain and binders. I'll pay extra to keep jobs local.
