Homemade Sled

Well after looking at several of the Prowler sleds and Rogue sleds and getting some ideas. My dad and I ended up building one similar to the Rogue Butcher. Had a fun time building it as well. Ended up really solid and didn't hardly cost a thing to build. There is no paint on it right now. I'm trying it out to see if there is any adjustments or modifications prior to painting. Just giving some of you guys with metal and fabrication backgrounds an idea.

Links are work safe.

Re: Homemade Sled

Looks really solid. Jealous of your skills.

Are the vertical poles welded in?
I have an Econo Prowler, and the vert poles just sit in an insert, they work fine that way. The advantage of being able to pull out the poles, is that heavy loads are easier to unload. Pull out the poles and then pull the plates off. If the poles are weldeded in, the bottom plates can be a minor inconvenience to pull off. Obviously, a minor problem.

Ya, the uprights are welded in. I though about making it so it will pop off and on but i have a full size truck and wasn't really worried about breaking it down if I was going to transport it.
