Here's my question has anyone had any experience with the wheels to sled attachments. I recently got a Roberts hay ride wagon and would like to put runners on it if we ever get snow does anyone have any experience with these. Also is there anything I should know about driving a sleigh I know there's no brakes ect.

Well, you do need snow, which is rather scarce in Wisconsin this year... :D

The runner conversions for wagons don't work very well in my opinion. I have messed with sleighs and runners a fair amount and a runner is best pulled not pushed. Pulled from the tip they tend to get up on top of the snow. Pushed the tip digs in and they flip over unless they have a safety chain.

It is all a simple matter of mathematics and physics.
