  • Info on Kaiser Sled Needed!!!

    My department is going to start competing with a team in the combat challenge next year and we need some info on how to build a kaiser sled or preferably some info on where to buy a used one. Any info is appreciated.

    Cheap and easy kaiser sled... Three railroad ties. Two for standing on, one for hitting. Works great!

      Cool thanks. I will have to try this out. We would still like to build or better yet maybe find a used one to purchase, so if anyone has anymore info please post or email me. Thanks again for the RR tie idea.

          Saw a department train for the exact same thing using railroad ties. They had drilled into the top of the slide and attached some extra weight, more than what is normally on there so come the day of the competition, the real one feels light.

            Btw, this kid is using horrible technique.

            The Kaiser sled is a training/PT exercise where you use a rubber sledge to knock a weight along a track. Hence the " sled."

              It's the thing they stand on and hit with a hammer.

              The rest of the stuff they use you should know already.

                  Hey thanks again guys for all the info. I just cant see spending over 2k for something like this. We have a company going to donate scaffold material and the power company is going to set our poles to anchor our stairs to. Should have a good challenge course set up soon. Ill get some pics maybe and post when we get it finished

                      Whats up man I'm glad to see you getting into the challenge. My team has been competeing for three years now and we enjoy every minute of it. I would really recommend you get in contact with some guys from around your area that competes to pick up training tips and techniques. A good place to start also in claytonchallenge.com/bb which is the Challenge Players Association and we all go and post and share training tips and everything. As for the keiser you can find a link here: http://mysite.verizon.net/vze4yrw4/t...einc/id15.html. Its the site for team rescue mode which has a top 5 open guy in the world in Scott McClelland and a top 5 over 45 guy in Lonnie Lewis. I'm not for sure where your located but if you need help with anything let me know and if you need help locating teams around you I can help with that also. Good Luck and I'll see you on the course for Tour 09

                          Actually it is called a Keiser Force Machine. It is a 160# beam, in teflon runners, that sits in a stainless steel trough. Then you take a 9# shot hammer and drive the beam 5". I is evolution #3 in the Firefighters Combat Challenge, where it is frequently referred to as the Slammer.
