Anybody have one they could photograph, so I could build one a little easier......
Chuckle. ORD sells 'em, I think, migth check their site...
Don't wanna buy one, couple of hundred dollars!!!
I just would like better photos of the way it folds.
Been stranded once in a gypsum mine, winch, but nothing to winch to. I ripped up a four-way after burying it and winching it through the ground..........walked a couple of miles to get a loader to come tug me out........
Oh god no, didn't mean to imply you should buy one... I can't BELIEVE what they cost either.
All I meant was they might have more pix =))
I keep meaning to look it up and make one, same drill, but I have less time than you
To-to-to much time on my hands...................I wish.........
I have some extra plows for my tractor. I thought I'd use one and fab the rest...........
I'll send you some pics when I get back home if no one else gets to it before I do. I'll be back Monday.
You'll be toast............
A friend had one of those. Gave it to me. I didn't want that heavy ol pig so I gave it to My Infamous Scout Friend.
I think a Danforth might be lighter, though it wouldn't stow as well.
No real mystery, I'll bet a simple layout would get the geometry. It stops short of being a 90*, but I don't think the actual angle is super critical. The 'hypotenuse' is made of 4 pieces, two long and two short. In folding the short pair swing towards the winch hook loop.
I used to carry one and it worked well. If you take the bolt out so the spade stores flat it isn't too hard to find a place to put it
X2, I carry one too. Havent needed it yet, but had some close calls. I got it from Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World for like $15. I trimmed the metal rod down a little bit so it can fit in my toolbox.
you know i need to actually put a pattent on things when I think of them
back in 1994 I got stuck in sand and said.. boy it would be nice to have a boat anchor to set in the ground... then I could use my come-along to it...
Something I forgot to mention, you need to be on a perfectly straight pull or you will bend the shank. Mine looked pretty beat after about 5 pulls that I couldn't get a straight shot on
Just carry a Bronco 11 on your rack. Toss it over the side when you get stuck and winch off it!
Gonna try to get my wife a Mini Cooper, next year. Thought about just throwing it in the back and using it for an auxiliary power source for my welder and the Mini's A/C to help cool my tranny. I guess I could burrow it if I got stuck, and winch off it!!!
Having driven in your country.....NO WAY would I drive a little car like that over there!
That's much better!!!
