  • Vantage Universal Cushion Plank

    I like the Vantage cushion plank.

    I have never had one break.

    When installing on the weldment I use 3/8 washers on the side next to the weldment so the weldment sits against the washers and plank.

      With Vantage plank the screws should work out easier.....the bottom screw is does not go through the thick part of the plank.

        Kinda bringing an old toppic back up... but... I really do like the universal planks.... and the one piece supercushion too! Together they're really nice. On a side note though, why the heck DO they make those tube-weldments so poorly? EVERYTHING around it is built solid but the arms the cushion mounts to. And felix... I'm curious how you can weld the arms... sure I've only seen one break, but it seems they'd break at the thinnest part... right where its been drilled through.

          We got sick of the tubeweldment arms breaking off a while back, too... A combination of the design, and the fact that some of the welds look like they were done by a crosseyed demon with 3 hands makes them weaker than they need to be.

          We started overwelding the factory welds and welding in reinforcement plates on the areas that commonly break, and it drove the problems from breakage way down.

          One of them is a piece of 1 1/4" angle steel, about 2" long, welded to the underside of the tube and butted up against the inner side of the arm. Once that is in place, we overweld all the original welds, grind them smooth, give 'em a coat of rust-oleum black paint, and run 'em.

          I've had quite a few of them that didn't actually break the steel parts... the welds let loose. After acquiring a large MIG welder to fix the problem, things got better.
