I repowered my ice fishing rig this season,went ECO friendly
Might I suggest a different mode of power?....
Those are shanty warmers Ralph , they're to skinny & high maintenance to make good pullers, they need to be fondled & caressed all the time, like a finicky carburetor
I don't have any of the above so I will have to tell what I have done. Age is catching up with me and this year is worse than the last year. I came up with an idea as it seems if I sit on a bucket I have a hard time getting up. I bought a cheap walker off craiglist that folds up. Took the wheels off it and adjusted the height added a seat(bought one without a seat because I am cheap) and now I can sit and get up no problems. Maybe added 5 to 10 lbs to the junk I take out with me
I bought one of these transport chair walkers around a year ago ,on the cheap off craigslist plan on putting skis under it, with the front being a smitty sled, to put a flip on
At least you guys could get yours to make sandwichs when not pulling your gear. Mine wont do that.
I added this reflectix insulation and it makes a big difference keeping the shanty warm. I used spray glue for the sides and I just slide the top two over the bars. It's easy to do each time and folds up inside the shanty. I think the 4' roll was $36 at Menards.
I also use a large bungee to keep the top from getting in the way. I also painted the side black because it was hard to see the rod tip against the reflective material.
I had a Girlfriend in the UP lined my flip with beaver pelts, she fell in love when I gave her her first Reese Cup, to make a long story short a customs agent liked it so much on a trip back from Mitchell's Bay that he kept it, you may have seen it on lake St Clair it's red with her nickname on it,to make matters worse she doesn't love me now that she owns a casino, sure would like another shanty liner
I know it's off topic but I thought Id tell you I invented the Nude Women's Curling League and all I got was suspended from Facebook
Here is some mods I made for my Jet Sled. I was getting tired of dragging it across trails and gravel paths that did not have any snow on it due to the wind. It cost about $100.00 and a few hours in the garage. Now it feels like there is nothing back there when I am pulling it. I bought all my supplies at Lowes. I also made it so you can remove all 4 wheels if you need to.
25 bucks a wheel is a bit steep,you may save quite a bit on the wheels at harbor freighthttps://www.harborfreight.com/8-inch-solid-rubber-tire-42427.html
Like your design, this made me think, I have something similar in my garage right now that been there for years unused. I'll let you know if it works before going into details
I'll make one suggestion, carry extra pins/washers for the wheels, I have a deer hauling cart that uses the same pins, granted there are branches etc. never fails I lose one.
A smitty sled with retractable wheels is nice
I'm having trouble seeing some pictures on this thread. Some I can see, others I can't. Anybody have any ideas why? I have an Android
