Chicken tractor resistance

details on chicken tractor repair

Once I installed the new decking board I bevelled each edge.

Without the bevel the edge wants to dig into the dirt when you pull it.

Did you use a French curve when designing the bevel? Then you could have the French Resistance?

Could you cut pieces of broken buckets into strips and screw onto the skid portion of the tractor to make sliding easier or maybe help with digging in?

I've been percolating an idea for our next chicken tractor...snow skis! There always seem to be a selection at our local Goodwill for just a couple of bucks. I'll let y'all know if it works out-I only have about 15 projects lined up ahead of that one! Lol
