I would like to get some good quality ratchet straps to hold down totes of wood that will weigh about 2500 pounds.

Any recommendations?

Why straps vs chain for those loads?
I usually reserve my heavy duty straps for things my chain would mark up.

What sort of totes weigh 2500lb? I'm guessing they're not run of the mill rubber-maids.

A 300 gallon IBC tote filled with water would weigh about that much, I'd guess a 300 gallon tote packed tightly with wet freshly cut oak or elm could be near as much.

Check out AW Direct / Zips. they have most everything you would need.

Not sure where you are but also Triple A sling in Grand Rapids.

These hold just under 1/2 a cord of firewood.
