boggin machine, you should always make sure chains are straight before loading them, that twist puts alot of extra strain on the links and can easily cause them to break...I'd bet that is one of the biggest reasons for chain failures.
ya i do bill.

most people do not though as they dont like to do things proper. i perfer straps to haul toys and chains to haul equipment and heavy objects.
