Towing Otter Sleds????

8 posts in this topic

I have the Mag sled with a hitch. You can pull as fast as you like as long as you have the proper hitch. They ride like a dream. I've hit over 50 mph easily on snowmobile, but you better watch out for bumps!! wink.gif I don't have the house kit on the sled, just haul all my gear and strap the portable on top of the sled.

I was going upwards of 45 pulling mine behind the trusty ol' Big Red last weekend...no problems...I did have the tow bar, and the sled cover.

As long as you don't pack your lantern in the sled, you can rock and roll at a pretty good clip. I would definitely opt for the sled cover to keep the slush out...

Cool -

Thanks Guys!

I have the cover and the rigid hitch so we can boogy. I can't wait until next Saturday when my son and I finally get to give it a whirl.

How fast can you tow and Otter Lodge full of gear?

I was getting my stuff together yesterday and noticed a yellow sticker on the back of it warning not to tow over 10mph. I would think you could go faster than that......I was under the impression that guys haul a$$ with these things????

Any input folks?

Thanks

30 is ok, faster and you wont have time to react to upcoming bumps...

the best thing I ever purchased for my otter sled was a BIG rubbermaid tub, the black ones with a grey lid and red handle. Everything packs nicely in there, propane tank, heater, vex, misc gear etc... doubles as a nice bench seat. toss in a couple of boat cusion seats, they firm your gear up inside the tub as well. Prior to doing this I was breaking stuff left and right. If you can figure out a way to mount your auger on your ATV, or sled, this is also the way to go. Nothing worse then smelling gas fumes all day from a leaky auger thats been bouncing around in the otter sled. I have my auger mounted on the back of my widetrack..

Thanks Widetrack.

I wish I had some welding skills and could make an auger rack for my widetrack too. I am going to pack all my gear into the Otter today to see how everything fits. I like the rubbermaid tub idea too. I'll have to see if I can get one in there.

I am hoping my vexi will fit in the custom made box on the back of my sled (nice box built by the former owner) and that my rods and a few other things will fit under the seat.

I can't wait until a week from today when I finally get a chance to hit L.O.W. grin.gif
