Homemade version of the Tidd Tech Trail Tenderizer
This is my homemade version of the Tidd
Tech Trail Tenderizer. I built it 15 years ago, but have been modifying
and adding to it ever since (and it's still not done!). Some of the features I've added:
Electric actuators for the teeth,
track setter, and front mount.
Goose neck hitch for the Skandic
Indicator Rods on
the teeth and track setter.
Snow sweeps that capture snow from the
edge of the trail and move it to the middle.
Spring loaded teeth on the main bed
Spring loaded internal runners to
keep the Tidd Tech tracking straight.
Wings and flaps that fold-up inside the profile
of the Tidd Tech.
Track setter that uses a fiberglass
rod for down-force and can be positioned on
the left or right side by pulling one pin.
Rear Stand & Lights on the back.
Front Mount that provides a common platform for attaching the front
renovator, powder board, front tines, front rake, track renovator, and
middle snow sweep.
I separated the frame and the bed of the
Tidd Tech for some of the pictures. This makes it easier to see some
of the details, as the middle of the Tidd Tech has a lot of levers and bars.
