Work Sleds at the Hanford Mills Ice Harvest.

This is the wooden sled that they use at the Hanford Mills Museum to haul ice for the Ice Harvest.  Those sleds haul 200lbs of ice pretty well.  Might be a good project to make!

These are single bob work sledges.  They are for heavy loads like firewood or ice, but not for long distances.  They pull best on a packed or iced path.  The side and back rails are removable.  These are very nicely made.

Over the course of one day these little sleds moved several tons of ice to the icehouse.  A pretty good days work!
