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.

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...

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

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
