This "Wing" attaches to the hitch, and the levers
attach to a frame I built on the rear rack of the Skandic.
It can be raised and lowered while sitting on the seat of
the Skandic, and the levers "lock"
the down position to apply down force on the comb using springs on the steel
The wing is 4' wide when the extensions are folded up and 6' wide with both extensions down.
The track setter uses an electric actuator
to raise and lower it and a white fiberglass rod for down force:
The track setter mount can be positioned
on the left side, in the middle, or on the right side, by placing it in one
of the three steel tubes on the wing by pulling one pin.
The track setter mount has a steel rod
and a white fiberglass rod attached.
The steel rod carries the weight of
the track setter when it is up.
The loop on the end of the steel rod
moves up and down the orange indicator rod to indicate how much
down force is applied to the track setter.
The white fiberglass rod flexes and applies down
force when the track setter is on the snow. It also flexes
sideways to allow the track setter to track smoothly around curves in
