Default New sled

Had a friend build this baby for about 100 bucks. Note box area for kegs or sandbags.

About how long did that take to make Jay? I'm thinking of putting together some farmer's walk handles soon, sled next.

From the look of it, I may be able to make it, but I figure whatever it took your friend to help piece that together, it would take my about 5 times as long.

Derek;

Give me hand/power tool, I'm an accident that WILL happen. I had the same guy build both.

Lowes supplied the materials, just wood and pipe. As to the farmer walk bars, just some different size pipe, few bolts, no welding. Believe I got the plans from one of the websites that shows DIYS equipment.

This sled works great on cement, gravel hard pac, but grass, whoa, different story.

Good luck.
BTW, I've been doing some pushing and pulling and it's kicking my butt big time.

I plan to work sled/keg and farmer walks into a daily quick program to supp some PP work that I do on M-W-F.

Thanks Jay. I have a free day unbothered once in a while, I should be able to work something. I'll probably start with the farmer's walk bars.

I've got a similar idea on programming for the summer.
