Otter Medium Cabin Floor

5 posts in this topic

I am new to the portable ranks and have
chosen the otter as my shack. I've had it
out a couple times and after using my
buddy heater for awile, it gets a little
too "soupy" in there for my liking. Do
any of you guys have floors you've built
up?? I've just built a plywood floor that
folds up and fits in the bottom of the
sled. It seems like it will work,but adds
a little more weight and bulk to the rig.
What is everyone using????

There was a thread on this not long ago. A couple of heavy-duty rubber mats seemed like the way to go.

You could use a 1x1' piece under the heater or I just flip the heater on its back in the cooker position.

I use a coleman lantern in my house. It provides enough heat to take the chill out of the air yet doesn't melt the ice and snow. I have had only one day when it was around 40 that it started to melt the ice.

    • Ya gotta die of something sooner or later might as well do it with a full tummy!
    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there.

    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.
