Otter makes a good, heavy duty sled. You can buy one at most sporting goods stores. They come in a wide variety of sizes

I'll 2nd the Otter sleds. I just picked up a Mini Otter Sled, it is 44"Lx22"Wx8"D and weighs 8 lbs. I put my 20 lb. tank with a Mr. Heater, rod bag, auger and HT tent in mine without any problems.

Otter Sleds are some of the best on the market. I own the small sized sled and use it for everything from pulling ice fishing gear out on the lake, to dragging leaves off my yard and other household chores. It fits both my hand auger and power auger. You should be able to pick the Otters up at most of the sporting goods stores throughout the state. You won't be disappointed with the durability of these sleds.

Another vote for the Otter sleds. What I like about them besides the durability is they seem to be deeper than most of the other sleds as well.

anybody know if you can buy a canvas pullover attachment for the otter sleds? i've got a large sled and wouldn't mind making it into a portable.

Check Otter's site Otter or I believe Canvas Craft makes the canvas as well Canvas Craft Both are FM sponsors. Good Luck!

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
