Double Bull replacement rods

7 posts in this topic

I was out hunting and ended up breaking a couple rods this weekend. Does anyone know if DB has a video or instructions on how to replace the rods or a repair center in the state?

Thanks

I have replaced mine. You need to look at the center of the hub and remove the screw. Then you can pull out the rods and replace. You will see how to put them back in after you remove them. Then slide the new ones in 1 at a time and bend the rod so it will slide into the corner holder. After the rods are in, screw the plate back in place and your done.

After you have done it once, its a pretty easy job.

If you have a tough time, give me a call or if you want, I see your from Waconia and your welcome to come over to Arlington and I will show you how.

I replaced my rods with a new lightweight rod after last years turkey hunt, I think it removed 3-4 lbs, the archery dealer in slayton can help you repair your blind he has parts on hand for them I think,shoot me an e-mail and I can get you his number.

Hello Harvey,

I'm going to give a shot, once I get the replacements from them. Any day works better for you, days or evenings? I would gladly take a day of vacation to come over during the day if that is better? Thanks Harvey.

Ken

PS: My email is kwyatt@garlockequip.com, why don't you email me your email with your address and I will call you sometime this month if I run into problems.

Thanks

Just call me a day or so ahead of time. It should not take longer than 30 minutes to put them back in.

Anytime works for me if you call in advance.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
