Truck for sale, this smart guy may be buying a lighter one :-)

That tow thing is pretty cool but how do they move it around?

This is what happens when you drive a diesel on 12" of ice. Glad they got it out of there, but bummer. That looks like an expensive repair bill that insurance isn't going to cover.

The sled would use a hollow wall anchor type steel tube dropped thru a hole in the ice, then winch itself along to get to the truck, and also used it to anchor the sled when pulling the truck out.

Wow, that would be harsh. All the ice on the floor won't be good, just wonder how much was around the engine then? I wouldn't take a truck that size out until you see a good 16 or more inches and even then I would use my wheeler.

Thanks for posting the pics Dtro, that tow sled is interesting looking. I'd like to se it work sometime, just not on my truck!!

I was just thinking, maybe if he had borrowed the counties front end loader to plow a road, he would have had better luck. crazygrin

actually most insurance companies in MN will cover this in a "one time shame on you for being a dumb a$$" claim. I didnt believe it till I asked my insurance company. after that its all you. ehh its a diesel ford prolly didnt run in the first place just kidding.

Yeah not a real genius idea to drive a truck that big out, especially on such a busy access area. If his truck does run again, i bet he wont be takin it on the ice anytime soon!

What a Moron. Lets drive a 1 ton truck on 12 inches of ice what a bright idea. You think that he would have waited until we had a bit more ice, even then it would be iffy though. You think that people would learn not to take the bigger trucks out on prior especially when theres always 1 or more trucks that go through on prior every year. Thats a real bummer, was a nice truck.

No need to send the guy through the ringer.

I heard third hand that he had parked in the same spot the previous two days.

I have an $11,000 insurance policy that guarantees my three-quarter ton Duramax Diesel truck WILL NOT break through the ice.

You know to diss on a guy who in all probability feels awful over this whole episode is a bit ludicrous and is uncalled for. Who here among us has never driven on ice. As we all know no ice is absolutely safe at any given time we may come up against ice that varies substantially in any given space. All I can say is there but for the grace of God go I.

I feel bad for the guy, hopefully he learned his lesson though. Let's be safe out there, just glad nobody got hurt.

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
    • monstermoose78
      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      We we're done by 7 this morning.  Were set up over field goose decoys now.

      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret
