    Re: Pelican 60 sled

    I never noticed the attachment points inside the front of the sled I just focused on the rope attachment points and ran on tunnel vision.
    Thanks for all the input guys, it is muchly appreciated.

    Not unless you're shorter than 6" tall!

    Re: Pelican 60 sled

    I tried the 75, but for me it was too big for what I needed it for. I like the 60 for pulling grain, blinds and other hunting and fishing stuff. It is also easy to pull deer out.....





    I just hook it up to my tree stand harness, which has a drag system in the back for dragging deer out and I can around with the sled in tow.

    CT and Cabelas has them on sale off and on during the winter.

    Cheers

    if you look at the big versions of the sled you bought at Canadian tire they have similar set up. I would add or exchange my sled for uhmw strips on the bottom.
    We pull the kids toboggans down a snowy/sanded road with the quad at Sheridan lake. The cheep plastic sleds are pretty much done/finished in a couple hours the uhmw sled stil looks like new and slides like it's brand new.
    Where can you buy the uhmw strips?
    The strips I had on my aluminum skimmer cracked and broke off.

    I have two what are called calf sleds, an heavy duty vinyl, one at least 6 years old, pick up at a livestock supply business, six feet long. One now equipped with solid tow bar to get away from those run over you or under the quad situations. They have hauled moose, deer, calves, dogs, and lots of firewood over sand/gravel damp grass and of course snow. With a couple hundred pounds behind an old 300, you don't know its there ....

    it will definitely help a lot to rig up a smitty sled with old skis if you are hand pulling your gear on the lake ice fishing, those uhmw strips don't help much with friction, they are mostly there to prevent wearing out the bottom of the sled

    but if you're pulling your gear behind a machine it's a moot point, but would still help if you had a weak machine or bogging down in slush

    it won't "dig" the nose into the snow, but it will create a plow affect, not noticeable behind a quad/sled but you certainly notice the resistance hand pulling...I mounted my tow anchors lower, I find it helps to get the nose up and pull easier, rather than plowing through, kind of like pulling a manual on a snowboard lol

    I put down hill ski's on my 60 and will put a set on my 45 as well. Makes for less friction and less wear when going over gravel. The sled gets pulled by me and pulled by my snowmobile. I countersunk the bolts in the ski's and covered the nuts inside. Find the widest ski's you can.
