Suwannee Sling - Trail Clearing Tool

(SKU #YMS-SS-36) - 36 inch handle can be used by comfortably by most people. If needed, simply "choke up" on the handle, as you would a baseball bat.

(SKU #YMS-SS-32) - 32 inch handle - This is a Special Order Item and must be ordered as such.

 

The Suwannee Sling is a hand tool designed for removing vines, weeds, overgrowth, and small branches from trails, footpaths, or similar areas.

It weighs 5 pounds, and has a fiberglass handle, with a hardened steel ax head for cutting heavier foliage and branches/roots, and a double sided bottom blade that cuts with a "golf" type swinging action. The head of the Sling is securely fastened to the handle to prevent separation of the two parts.

The Sling takes the place of several types of other hand tools, and reduces the need to carry them on the trail during any hikes, including work hikes.

The Sling doesn't make any noise itself, other than the sound of a sharp tool swinging through the air and into whatever vegetation you’re working on…, and of course whatever grunts or groans that escape from the operator!

There’s no need to carry any petrochemicals, or spare spark plugs or other parts to operate this tool, but you'll be well served to bring along a diamond sharpening tool or a high quality file, to sharpen the Sling’s edges from time to time.

The Sling is made from a high quality steel, and the cutting edges of the Sling are hardened to resist dulling, but they will need to be sharpened as needed.

The Sling is also available in a Left-Handed version. Against the advisement from my CFO, we offer the Left-handed version at no extra cost to the customer! 

GREAT CARE MUST BE USED WHEN EVER THE SUWANNEE SLING IS BEING USED!! Using the Sling is NOT a spectator sport!

WE STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST CHILDREN BEING ALLOWED TO USE THIS TOOL, OR ANYONE ELSE WHO MAY BE IMPAIRED IN ANY WAY! Use the same safety proceedures for this tool, the same as you would an axe or machete.

PROPER FOOTWEAR, LEG PROTECTION, AND EYE PROTECTION SHOULD ALWAYS BE WORN WHEN USING THIS TOOL!

Prevent striking any of the cutting edges against dirt or stone, as it will dull and possibly chip the hardened cutting edges.

Please use the Suwannee Sling wisely and safely!!!

Price: $107.50 plus shipping and handling (7% tax for all Florida sales)

 

 


ROTAX Bench-Top Motor Mount: for repairing ROTAX 912 series aviation engines (aka "The Dude")

(SKU #YMS-RMM-912)

DESCRIPTION: This is a work bench device, designed to safely facilitate repairs and maintenance on all 912 series ROTAX aviation engines. It'll mount to your workbench by bolts (supplied by customer), and will allow the engine to be rotated a full 360 degrees, to make repairs and/or removal/replacement of all exterior parts for this series of ROTAX engines.

"The Dude" will attach to the existing mounting holes on the ROTAX engine, by bolts (supplied by customer), and will allow removal of all external components on the engine.

"The Dude" does not tilt, (unless you tilt your workbench), because we've found that during most common repairs or maintenance issues, a tilting motion does not help facilitate repair or replacement operations. For us to build "The Dude" with a tilting motion capability, only complicates the device and increases the costs of the device. Also, the fluids remaining in the engine block do not need to be spilled onto the workbench and floor. (But, if you can't live without a "tilt" feature, we'll be happy to custom build you one with that ability! The final cost would reflect that added feature.)

"The Dude" is not Nickel or Chrome plated, but it IS made from high grade American steel and is primed and painted to resist rust. It isn't the prettiest motor mount on the market, but I assure you that it is the most cost effective bench type motor mount on the market! So, if you're looking for functionality and cost efficiency, rather than another pretty shiny toy…, “The Dude” is for you!

 

Price: pending, but it'll be VERY affordable! (7% tax on Fla orders)

 

 


Floor Mounted Motor Mount for repairing ROTAX 912 series aviation engines (aka "The Tall Dude")

(SKU #YMS-TRMM-912)

"The Tall Dude" has the same details as "The Dude" listed above, except that it has a taller stand that is custom built to the customer's specifications, and is to be mounted to the floor of your shop (with bolts provided by customer).

Will require the customer to provide height deminsions prior to estimating cost and shipping & handling fees.

 

Price: pending, determined by weight and length. (7% tax on Fla orders)
