Scout 800a Cage

This cage fits the Scout 800a, I beleive it is a little too wide to fit under the facotry roof, but you could simply narrow the spreaders to make it fit....I will try to find time to test fit the top to see if it fits.

nice cage, i like the way the design still incorprates the rear seats without intruding too much on passanger space.

Ian, do you have a bend-tech file for the scout cage?

Where do the passengers in the rear seat put thier legs? The two down bars look to be right in the way of comfortably sitting in the rear seat.

Is it just the camera angle?

Very nice job otherwise!

Ian I need help.

In one of your past builds (this one I think). You used axles that were splined long, and you cut them to length.

Can anybody help me on this?

Thanks

Currie Cut to fit.

That is if I remember correctly.

They stock a bunch of different size with 4" splines. Just figure out what you need. Order the correct set, and then cut down with an abrasive wheel. I think they did this to help cut down on the need for custom re-spline axles all of the time. This way they can be done on an assembly line a bunch at a time and cut down on cost.

Surely you have got this done by now but I'm about 99% sure he took stock length scout shafts and just shortened the axle housing to fit them. I think this video is on spike.com (Broke some bones and laid up for awhile and probably could have quoted these videos word for word)

Thanks for the reply, even its A late one

Actually at the time I was looking up some info and thinking of narrowing A CAD 60 that I have. Ironically I scored an M715 so the hole thing got thrown aside.

I must say that the cage looks strong and sturdy. Furthermore, I think the design also offers the rear seats much space and leg room.
