how about some of that anti skid type tape? I am thinking of the stuff that is almost like sandpaper with an adhesive backing? I think it is a 3M product.

Good idea! I have the 5600 and have the same problem. It is also noisy! I think I am going to try carpet remnants. Maybe a combination of the two?

Carpet can be trouble. You'll get water splashed on it and it'll freeze as slick as any ice rink. And it'll be harder to clean out your house floor than if you left it bare. The no-slip adhesive strips are a better idea. They're designed for floors and stairways and should stay on after freezings and thawings. Of course, you get enough water on any floor and it'll freeze slick.

Try a piece of dry end mill felt. If you know anyone that works at a paper mill. The dry end felts are extremely durable and work great.

What about the spray in bed liners for pickups. I did this to my duck baot and it worked pretty good.
Carpet will help the keep it a bit warmer and quieter though.

Ifalls,
Speaking of paper mill stuff, have you ever used Uhle Box strips from the wet felts for runners? I have them on my permanent and they are slicker than cat snot on a door knob. They are basically 2 1/2" wide UHMW strips in the following shape:

(Arghhh, just imagine a U shape!)

With just a little triming, a 2X6 slides right into it. I move my 6X10 on the blacktop by hand with these!

Wabels,
yup, I am in the process of getting another one this week. They last forever and like you said are slicker than anything.

I am building a sled for my clam so we can pull it behind a machine and that is what we will use for runners.

later,
Brent

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
