"Easy To Build" Poly Calf Sled
A 4 by 8 sheet of heavy duty plastic is all Roy Klindt needed to make a 6-ft. long calf sled that he pulls behind his snowmobile.
  "It was cheap and easy to build," says the Crane Valley, Sask., rancher.
  Klindt bought a 4 by 8 sheet of "puckboard" plastic from a local manufacturer. He used a torch to make cuts in the sheet at four places. He also used the torch to heat the plastic so he could fold the front and back sections up. He used a wooden 2 by 4 to bend the back section at a 90 degree angle and the front section at a 45 degree angle. The entire structure is bolted together with 1/4-in. bolts.
  The floor of the sled bolts onto a pair of lightweight channel irons that ride on the snow, with a metal hitch bolted to it on front.
  "The sled's front end slopes upward like a toboggan to keep it from getting stuck in the snow. The channel iron runners bite into the snow to keep the sled from swaying too much behind the snowmobile."
