Teryx Working - Do you work your Teryx?

Finally got some rain, actually torrential rain so us rednecks like to improve the looks of our property. We hauled about 11 loads like these from a steep bank on our property to where we burn behind the house. My wife Robin commented on how well the new Dalton Clutch hooks up, how much smoother it was and more positive than stock. We had a lot of fun working together. I might have exceeded the 500 pound bed rating as it is a little warped now and the diamond plate looks a lot more wavy, but oh well.

Also, on a side note. You can see the red Thunderhawk rear frame gusset and bed rails in the pics. I was running the Trail Logic rear gusset and I much prefer the Thunderhawk as it allows you much better access to the hitch and rear of the machine. The way we get a lot of the logs is hook them up with a couple of tow straps pull them up a bank, then cut them up and load them in pieces into the bed for the steep and fun trip to the fire. I had a lot of trouble getting the hooks in using the old TL frame gusset, this Thunderhawk solves this problem altogether and I really like the red glossy finish. Just an FYI.

Do you guys work your machines? If you do, lets see some pics.

Lets see some pics!!!

You can see my Thunderhawk bed rail bending under the load. Man we had a fun and productive day. Tip... you have to use the diff lock when you have so much weight in the bed and going up steep banks. The powerful V-Twin does not hurt climb performance either. Yea Baby.

That counts, but we need to see more photos from you Sleepy. Your machine is HOT, who painted it for you?

Yea baby, that's what I'm talking about. Lets see some pics of you guys working your Teryx!!

Not only do you have great taste in sxs's Tee, you also have good taste in saw brands. My 026 has been kicking it for over 13 years.

Also, nobody noticed yet, but see the pic where you can see my saw? See the WEGO III and the NGK Air/Fuel ratio meters on my cup holder. You can tune and work at the same time.

Shocking, Will, you definitely know your chainsaws, how you knew that was a 026 "pro" I can't figure out, with that crappy of a picture! (cell phone pic) The picture of the one limb is deceiving, I am dragging up about a 40 degree grade, my front tires kept getting airborne!


Well no one noticed my new bumpers....

I see that you gave it "The old 500-pound log test", huh?

You know, that's a great picture. When we design our parts, we make them heavy duty, since we work with our vehicles too. But you know, I never thought I'd see that kind of load on top of the bed rails. I'm glad I didn't have to load them
