Hy-Fax Runners?

8 posts in this topic

Anybody put these on their sled? What are they? Where do you get them? How much do they cost? Thanks.

Everytime someone brings this up I mention that I have the same concept on my otter sled. instead of hyfax I used those aluminum strips you see at the hardware stores. they fit perfectly in the otter medium sled. They were about 2 bucks a piece. I just stuck them in the slots and riveted them on in counter sunk holes. They're tough and cheap and i no longer worry when draggin it accross concrete and gravel. Stays in line when pullin too.

Are you talking about putting them on a snowmobile or on the bottom of your Trap style sled? They are just strips of high density polyethelene(plastic) get them at any snowmobile dealer, I just replaced them on one of my snowmobiles and have the old ones if you want them you can have them. They should work fine for a trap.

I have the ones Otter makes specifically for my med. sled. They bolt on and off easily, and I would recommend them. The extra money was well spent as I have been dragging over quite a bit of asphalt this year trying to get to the ice. I went out without them the first couple times and looked at the bottom of the sled and noticed the damage. Went right to gander and bought them. They also make it easier to hand pull across ice, it slides better and stays straighter when towed behind snowmobile.

deadeye, they do help when going across snow, but depending on how much weight you got it still can suck. I like them cuz they save the bottom of my sled, for that reason alone they are worth the money

Depending on the amount of snow, I would say yes. The Hyfax runners are actually narrower than the sled runners; so there would be less contact with the ground/snow. They also slide easier than the plastic sled bottom.

would those runners make pulling the sled through the snow better? i have no problem with the glare ice but when it comes to deeper snow my sled becomes a real burden to pull long distances. ><>

    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels.
