  1. James: I got one from DR Equipment and splits logs up to 10" in Dia. It's electric and I use inside the garage. Check out their HSOforum. A good way to go without breaking the bank...
  2. Shawnny: What's your Info telling you about the UHF Transponders in the areas where the standard signals do not reach. I was told that low power transponders will remain anolog until a much later date, maybe stay as they are now.. Kaz
  3. Lands: I'd get a 15" or 17" one. Smaller are hard to find and to hard to see anyway. Bigger, unless it is anchored well to a wall may be to heavey. 15/17 inchers work well on a swivel mount , so you can move from hole to hole and still watch FOOTBALL, !!!!! Kaz
  4. Don't go with Plasma of any kind. It will freeze and crack. LCD is the other type and is not affected by tempature. Not -40 or +120, but Motorhome manufactures are using the LCD ones with no problems. The 15" flat screen seems to be the ticket, but if you are fishing in a area where you were recieving a transponder, like at Lake of the Woods, or other place where you get the regular channels on UHF, then you will not need to change. All of the UHF transponders will remain on analog. Save the money and buy BAIT... LOL.. Kaz

    I've had both.. I prefer the color...Kaz
  6. I do the same procedure.. But I drop the house down and open the hole doors and drill the holes. I made some inserts that I push into the shavings to seal the drafts and then clean out the small amount of slush left inside the insert. That way I keep the hole sealed from the outside. I have square openings in the floor, so my inserts are also square.. Been doing this for over 10 years. The hole just about never freeze up, even when I'm gone over night with the house set at 70 degrees.. The insert idea works great and the slush in the bucket keeps the BEER nice and cold .. LOL.. Come on ICE
  7. I may put them on the front of my Ranger and have the Mattracks on the rear.. I think that would be COOL and almost qualify for a Snowmobile?? With the proper stickers, I could run the Ice trail out to the Angle. Hey, such a deal... Kaz
  8. Borgy: I'm having Mike Lindholm from Lindholm welding in Theif River Falls make some for me to put on my King Crow wheel house. He is a guest many times on Curt Q's radio show ande I think a sponsor on this site.
  9. Coach: That includes the wheels. If you building a 102" wide house, with built in wheels, they have to be under, or inside the house. However, you can make it wider and get permits to move it, but that takes flags, signage and a permit from the (Contact Us Please). All of that is pretty much not needed if you are just moving it from your lot to an access on the skids and dragging it. Major Highways or Freeways though, it's 102" or permits. I moved a 12'X18' from Mille Lacs to Morris on a flat bed trailer and the process for getting the proper permission was a breeze. Had to take specific roads
  10. Brokenline: I sprayed my bottom with a rubberized areosol Auto undercoat. That was back in '97 and it still looks great. About 3 years ago I had the frame sand blasted and repainted. I've had my K/C wheel house all over the state, both summer and winter.. It's a great place to stay without looking for a motel when I'm fishing, camping or hunting.. That was what I used all of the time before I got the place at Wheelers. Use it more, and you'll see the value of a great addition to your sports gear... Kaz
  11. Hey Pat, could you promise Ice by the 13th.. I'll be up with the grandkids.... Thanks in advance... LOL.. Kaz
  12. Hey you Guys, don't pick on those from Iowa.. "Their Very Outstanding In Their Feilds"... Kaz
  13. It does sit about 3" off the ice, but I made some square inserts that I push into the openings. I first drill the hole and then push the insert into the ice chips from the drill. Scoop out the hole and it's air tight.. No wind blowing or freezeing in the hole... The 3" off the ice space helps the lifting back on to the wheels too, and if it would happen to flood in and freeeze, well only the three corners need to be cheseled out.... Kaz
  14. Well they changed the times and places again. It WAS NOT on Channel 45 this morning.. I Emailed Melanie Rice, the web master, and advised her the web-site is for October.. May be she'll have it updated soon.... Kaz
  15. I've had a KC for 10 years now and had no problems. I did repaint the lower frame and put new tires on it a couple of years ago. I use it at LOTW and have slept in it, plenty of room. Mine is a 7x16.. Never had a problenm with the siding.. I did put some spray-on undercoat on just after I got it, and the bottom has taken the beating with the salt on the roads.. The only thing I wish was different would to have the "V" nose to help the wind drag... Happy KC owner .... Kaz
