It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I see you made your first guess based on your welding skills. :lol:

I set it on the scales with their forklift, the strap is attached but has no pressure on it.

It lifts and drives great, of course you got to be smart, I wouldn't try and load it on a trailer by driving up a ramp or going up a steep hill :D I am putting photos of it behind the tractor on the thread where I built it.
