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
