Need a Solution for Deep Snow Conditions

Recommended Posts

I am finishing off my 7' X 9' fishouse. it sits atop 2" X 8" runners with conduit afixed to the bottom. It should move very nicely on bare ice or a few inches of snow covered ice. However, when the time comes to pull it off the lake for the season, I anticipate a pretty big drift near the shore of my cabin. Does anyone have any ideas for how to adress the need to get this little behemoth up and over the drifts and on to the shore? Thanks

any way to get out there an plow a path? that can be a tough one - last year we resorted to a truck with chains and pulled a snowmobile trailer out to the shack. Loaded the shack onto the trailer and muscled it back to the landing through 18" of slush and 1-2' of snow.

If you can get one or two damaged car or truck hoods from a body shop,they really work nice.I got a couple from work and jacked up the front of the fish house,then we just sat the front back down on them and it slid great!We didn't even have to secure them in any way.Just be sure they stick out in the front a little bit.

Dan, I like your ingenious use of old car hoods. I could probably pick up a couple and paint them with a home made camo finish. They could lay in the woods near the cabin in the off season without giving the place the appearance of a junkyard, excuse me, automotive recycling center. Thanks for the reply.

Old car hoods make great sleds! Just wax it up and away we go! Weeee!!!

If you are worried about the ice shack falling off the hood, you could probably strap it down somehow.

    • yep. first cut them off with the meat saw. Then cut again with hack saw. Then a little bit of filing. Takes a while but no mess.well, not much anyway. lol 
    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
    • thanks guys, i've only owned 2 blowers. both 2 stage and the first one i think came over on the mayflower!!!!!!!!!!! guess i never paid much attention to other blowers!!!!!
