    I have been using my drill/impact for years ive used a socket that i slotted to go over anchor but was a pain kept slipping off center and wobbling so i switched to 8in lag bolts and have been using them for 7 years now

    One nice thing about this as opposed to the lagbolt is u can take them out by hand if u want or need to

    Very true! Never been in a situation where i needed remove by hand but anything can go wrong. I still have all my original anchors gonna try welding a nut to them.

    If you've already got them go ahead and weld a 9/16 or 5/8 nut on the handle. I've seen it done and it works great!

    Very simple rack for the back of the sled to hold the auger motor (padded inside to reduce bouncing) - and a slightly modified gun rack for the blade - had to add the aluminum riser to clear the hood with a 10" blade

    Cool setup but if you ever turn it over it'll take an hour to pick up. Better hope there's not a wind...

    I think you did a fine job and I zoomed in and looked close too!

  15. No problem, while hanging in my deer stand caught your reply. The handle worked better than I expected it won't be my last build thinking about making them as Christmas gifts. Thank you for the inspirational idea
