Snowmobile auger rack?

10 posts in this topic

I did a search,b ut came up empty. I know there have been post about how some of you mount an auger to a sled. I finally have a sled this year (old one, only for fishing, probably) and was wondering how I can carry it on sled instead of in my Otter shack.

Thanks! Pics would be great smile

I am in the same boat as you. I finally got a snowmobile and would like to somehow mount my Strike Lite up front.

I think having a buddy with a welder making you one may be your best bet. I could be wrong but I don't think there is anyone that manufactures auger racks for sleds. I think everyone is afraid of a lawsuit so they don't make them. Kinda funny becuase just about every ice fishing magazine and tv show has a picture of a guy using one. I've wanted one for years and have never found one.

Wow, I must not be good at searching smile Lots of good stuff there.

Thanks guys, this gives me a bunch of ideas, for a "quickie" this year to a more fabricated next year if I get my buddy the welder to help me out. I am kinda thinking the oak rack or the Otter holder setup for now, but I dig the front mounted or the Mad Dog with the rack.

Thanks! Another project smile

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
