Jacked Up Jet Sled

Postby MOduckMOfun » Mon Jan 28, 2013 2:29 pm

For anyone out there that uses a jet sled for hunting, have you ever considered adding wheels to it? Often times, when a boat won't do, it's nice to have a jet sled. But, it'd be nicer if it had wheels to haul it across dry areas/fields, etc. Has anyone seen plans for anything like this? I've seen carts that you can load a jet sled onto, but I'd rather just have the wheels attached.

wheels really struggle in mud and snow.. you will regret a permanent mounting of wheels

Agreed. I know they can get heavy. But adding wheels makes things a lot worse ... Mud, get hung up on sticks and weeds and stuff

I would put some dirt bike tires on it ,but when put a axle or bar extend it out from the side of the sled at least six inches to keep mud build up down .Also do not use fenders

Thanks guys. Fowlhabit4, I like your suggestion, although everyone else makes a good point about the mud. I just walked through a lot of dry areas this year dragging a jet sled and thought wheels may have come in handy. But I like the option of being able to have them on temporarily.

I just found this from Google. Just bumping this old thread.

Been brainstorming ideas and like the cannot carrier wheels idea. I use an xl jet sled without wheels often. A couple spots are public walk in. The first half mile is over crp grass. A few times doing this leaves a well worn path advertising where the not so well known slough is. Wheels would advertise less and make the drag easier. Anyone have any images or personal experience regarding temporary wheels?

Had the same Thot many times myself but I think it really depends on situation... I agree in certain situations it would make things worse. Nothing works well over muddy fields, swamp area or really tall vegetation. You just have to drag or carry then. But if it's a levee or path I'd think it'd work great. I've not wanted to spend what cabelas wants for their canoe carriers but I recently found one for about 30 bucks on amazon and planning to try it. I can post up the brand etc if u want to look at it.
