Re: The Pig

The original Pig is #310 without being loaded.

http://games.crossfit.com/video/team-burden-run-demo (wfs) (0:24)

I can't find anything on length or other dimensions. You'd want the length of the pig to be about the same as the diameter of a large tire you'd use for tire flips.

If you imitate their design, there are three posts to add bumper plates, and square ends to hold/get a knee under/push your chest against. That end design is pretty well thought out. Consider however that a lot of the athletes commented on not being able to grip it, or it cut into their hands. You may want to add some features for hand comfort - maybe a rounded edge or handle with an opening for better gripping.

Re: The Pig

I got it from the video (linked in my comment) at about the 0:24 mark. Now that I rewatch it there seems to some small weights (not bumpers) on the middle bar. Maybe the unloaded pig is #300? Still unknown, I guess.

Re: The Pig

Why don't you just get a heavy tyre ... seems a cheaper option to me for something that will hardly be used

Re: The Pig

The Pig is a lot different than a heavy tire! All the weight is on the ends unlike a round tire.

The Games Pigs were prototypes. They worked great on turf. They ends would cave in when flipped on concrete with 3/4" rubber. We beefed ours up twice to keep this from happening. Ours now weigh 410#. They are very difficult for short athletes.

The spine does have 3 posts. If I were re-engineering the ones I have I would change it to 2 posts only make it 6-12" shorter and make it a little lighter when empty. It has to be super stought to handle the beating these things take. They are a pain to move around and store. You can put the posts from the Butcher in the ends and do 2, 3 or 4 person gurney carries.
