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.

    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
