    use a couple of pieces of steal for the arms,drill some holes so you can bolt some all thread to mount rolling pins from the bakery and set it up:confused:

    in the past, i've used brushes from a lawn sweeper and bolted them to the deck. works great.
    or, you can buy 24"W x 36"H x 1/4"T mud flaps from northern tool for $10 ea., cut to size and use a piece of flat steel to run along the top edge and put bolts through it to secure it to the deck. very inexpensive and effective.

    i also thought mud flaps would work well. I think it would be more consistant than chains or rollers, and would conform to uneven ground. I want to put one on my 61" ferris, would they make a flap wide enough?

    Stop a plow shop and look at the different rubber flaps the use. Should be helpful
