    Default Look At This Sled...

    What will the white folks come up with next?

    What a kewl rig. Expensive, but kewl. I wonder if it has any mechanism to keep the rolling to a minimum with an uneven load. I do not see any torsion bars.
    Still kewl though.

    I can not see how that is going to hold up to anything other than light load on smooth groomed trail if it had any kind of a load I could see the legs rolling up in a ball????????

    I dunno. Looks good. But maybe tippy with an uneven load. Weld in some stops to keep it going too far.

    Looks like it would work well to get lumber to a cabin project. It doesn't need the suspension for that though.

    i really like the stop on the rear of the sled. I think that the tippiness is increased by the height and the narrow hitch point.....

    Ron's sleds are the ones all others are compared to.

    Ron's sled are the ones to have. These have hauled tens of thousands of pounds.

    Prefer Larry Heaters sled even more. The ski tips are tied to the undercarrige and tongue in case the trailer goes through overflow it won't hook the ice on exiting and send the driver over the handlebars in a sudden stop. Similar trailers but with an added improvement and copied by many.

    Heres the sleds I build, Not advertising or anything, just posting a picture, I have the front of the skis bow up a lot more and the weight load bias is towards the back, so in the powder the trailing edge of the skis sit lower. I have successfully taken these through 3 feet of powder, and not get stuck. Hopefully the picture is attached, haven't figured this system out yet.
