Mounting a Auger on 4 wheeler

14 posts in this topic

What is the best or cheapest way to mount a auger on a 4 wheeler?

Best? probably the Mad Dog auger mount.

Cheapest? probably a gun mount. I use the Mad Dog Fin grip pro gun mount. Works pretty good but I do have to use a small bungie to keep the head from spinning.

Scheels wants $29 for it. I asked them to price match to fleet farm for 24? or maybe scheels wanted 34 and I asked to match to 29, in any case, they called and matched it to $21 I didnt say anything and payed $21 for it.

You won't have any problems mounting those to a Foreman since you have the tube style racks. The newer Polaris' are a different story. I had to buy rack extenders just so I could put on the gun mounts. The Mad Dog gun mounts with the fin grips hold an auger pretty securely with the bungies that it comes with on each fork.

The best is a Ryan Auger mount, specifically designed for Augers, simple, indestructable. Can drive all over without bungees and then if you want bungees there are four points on each end. I can not understand why it is not mentioned more. Look up his HSOforum. Ryan is also independent, Minnesota small business. Bought mine at Scheel St Cloud. Once you compare you would never buy a Mad Dog unless money is issue. approximately 40 dollars, but again no rubber other then coating and it will last a lifetime.

Thanks for the help guys. I ended up what Hard617 suggested, the Mad Dog Pro

It was even cheaper than he said. Only 19.99 and it will work for me

Thanks for all the help, much appreciated

Just checked out the Ryan Auger mount, I guess I'd be concerned that there is no support for the Power head.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
