Where to get Hyfax Runners?

18 posts in this topic

I have an Eskimo ProFish 150 and an Frabill Trekker 2. I'd like to put hyfax runners on them, but have no clue who does it or where to get them. Any suggestions?

You could try calling Fleet Farm, Gander or Cabelas. I'm not sure what they still have left.

H and H Sport Shop is in Maple Lake.

I doubt they could get hyfax for the Frabil, but they could for the Eskimo. Last weekend the had a bunch of hyfax for the Eskimos.

Go to a Goodwill store and pick up a pair of cross country or down hill skis for 5 bucks. Cut them to fit, drill some holes and bolt 'em on with round leg bolts. That's what I did.

Works great and glides awesome!

I have a fish trap pro and scout and after paying the big bucks for the pro I went to mills fleet and got a pair for the scout for $10.00 or so. Go back to the atv/snowmobile area and look for the slides for snomobiles. They have different widths but I haven't seem them as wides as the ones for houses. Find the ones you like and go to the hardware dept and get the hardware. Mine have been on for 3 years and are holding up great. Just remember when installing to use a blow dryer to help bend in place.

I got a pair of old downhill skis from a second hand store last weekend and put them on my Scout. They work great and only cost $5. One bit of advice is to be sure your screws are the right length. I took the sled out of the truck and it would not pull well because I had six screw ends sticking into the ice. At least the sled would not blow away in the wind. I also have six tears in the cargo liner in the back of the wife’s Explorer. After I backed the screws out, the sled pulls great. I would recommend a strong glue or epoxy or just make sure your screws are the right length. I am so not handy!

This is off a site that sells the stuff

UHMW

This Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene bar has exceptionally high abrasion and impact resistance properties. It will outwear all other materials, including metals, nylons, urethanes, and fluoroplastics. In corrosion resistance, it has the same qualities of other polyethylenes. The working temp range is from -60 to 200 deg F. Because it resists wear, friction and corrosion, it cuts maintenance costs, energy consumption, and extends equipment life. Applications include guide rails, wear plates, rollers, conveyor augers, bin and hopper lines, chutes, bearings, bushings and gears. Its properties include: low coefficient of friction, self-lubrication, non-adherent surface, FDA and USDA concurrence for contact with foods, drugs, etc. Use mechanical fasteners in construction

Works great and is as tough as it gets. I put mine on with stainless steel bolts that I countersunk and used stainless lock nuts.

I put mine on the same way, $20 in materials and 1 hour and it will last for years

A guy on C-List out of Maple Grove makes the hyfax (UHMW) and its much cheaper and better than the hyfax from the house makers.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • 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!!
