Cool seat for the sled driver.

 

you take care of his Back !

looks like it is also damped.

 

There shall be no problem to find a sled driver, because seat position looks pretty fair.

 

👍

Well then we found out that when you raise the front that you can't see over it from the back. So we had to raise the back up.  The put new plate on the front to attach the pan and gus sets to stiffen the uprights.

Built the bracing for the rear floor and back weight box and added a ladder to get on and off. Next is built the turret for the 50 Cal so the season can go on as planned.

Is a 50 Cal a standard in national pulling or a local club only thing?

Great work and excellent choice of damping Seat.

 

have nearly the same without armrests on the Beast,

but the dampingrate is fantastic - i love it.

 

good for the Back even on long term using.👍

:scared-eek:              With any luck the restrictions will go away soon and you can make the first FULL PULL with the sled.        :happy-bouncygreen:
