Tie down locations: The 2000XL /utilities standard equipment list has been updated with welded D-Rings on the track carriers. These D-rings are located on the front and rear of the machines. The D.O.T. regulations requires 4 points of contact and cross tied down. Commonly we would see our customers chain and bind above the machines suspensions system. When doing so this causes a great deal of stress to the suspension when transporting. The stress causes premature spring failure and unnecessary fatigue on the machine. Our D-rings are below the suspension and welded to the tracks steel track frames.
