That's an impressive speed. I'm sure it's enough when you're standing in a wagon. 

You not only do good work, but the enginuity that went into it is first rate. 

What color of flames go with flat grey?

That's really cool. 

I can tell your side kick (Grandaughter) is a bit of a daredevil. I bet she had as much fun as you did.

I can see where in hunting terrain, it could be easy to get thrown off.  Take care, with that high speed.

Ayear ago I got a speeding ticket, going threw a remote swamp road, no buildings or traffic.  doing 51 mph in a 40 zone.  SPEED TRAP.

my son and daughter were amazed and took me to lunch to celebrate.

My normal/standard max interstate speed is 58 MPH.....other drivers admire me because as they pass they signal that I'm  No.1

I put a cage/ carry over the motor.
It will stop to much damage on the motor if I tip over and it gives me a place to put the trailer or sled. Keeping it out of the bed.

Confused

I finished most the little things ,still need to think on the brake.
I bit the bullet and got a sheet of treated 3/4” ply for the bumper buddy, anchored it with 5/8 carage bolts. I stacked it all on the buddy like I plan to hall it, rapped some big tie down straps and lifted it with my scale. Just under 500 pounds with the buddy.
My f150 should handle that ok, my lights me be high with it on…

What is the weight rating for the bumper buddy? All the weight is hanging on that "tongue" in the receiver. I think that is the limiting factor.

The "buddy" is rated at 600 pounds, according to the sticker.
The reserve draw bar says 1200 pounds.
Ford says 1300 pounds.
I have easily increased the buddy another 50%.
The only thing I could not "Beef" up is the tube that goes in to the receiver.
I could but a very difficult job.
I would have to get thicker wall tubing and cut every thing off and reweld it all, My little welder can't weld anything that thick.

Could get a smaller box beam and insert it inside the tube.  Would strengthen it, but might bend a little with over-weight if the gap between the beam and the tube is large.

The biggest problem with that much weight on the carrier is BOUNCING.  Washboard road might get it bouncing up-down which would increase the load up to 5 times the static load...some carriers can be locked down to limit bounce, but that also makes it rigid if you ground-out on the carrier....I've straightened a few.

I'm calling it the muddy dog.
All but paint and a longer ramp to put it on the bumper buddy, it's ready to hit the trails. I'll work on a sled, later you know, when there is snow.




It is just as fast with two as one.
A little adjusting the throttle and it up to almost 25 mph.( with two)

Looks great.
With that frame work you could add a white sheet for winter camo?  maybe a fall deer hunting camo also.  then you could call it "snow chameleon"!
