Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes getting on the water possible. I bought the Kayak Beach Cart to help move my dinghy sailboat (similar to a sunfish.) Even though the boat is significantly wider than a 'yak, it works great. Unlike wheels placed at the stern, these are meant to be more centered. The result is that the weight on the bow as you pull the boat is very light. My boat is about 125 lbs and I have easily moved it across soft sandy beach- about 200 yards from car to water. If you have ever hesitated to get out there because of the oomph to move your gear, this will get it done. You can pile all your stuff in the boat and haul it all at once! Very cool. IMPORTANT- these wheels are VERY bounce and are not for pulling at any speed. The whole rig will bounce in a wild fashion...not that I went for it or anything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I used to carry my kayak two blocks down to the beach and then over the dunes and to the ocean to launch it. It is a Ocean Kayak Malibu 2...big and cumbersome for one person to carry that far. The way back was killer after an hour or so of paddling. With my Wheeleez kart I can carry my double Ocean Kayak or both my double and single Ocean Kayak, a surfboard, paddles, gear, ice chest etc. for a day at the beach and don't have to strain. I just stack everything and attach the boats to the kart and off I go in about 3 minutes. I also use it when we go camping and it saves a lot of time, hassle, and my back when transporting our boats from our camp to the river or lake. The kart basically turns my kayak into a giant wheelbarrow. It takes once or twice to get the balance down for maximum pulling ease. It's well made, isn't showing any signs of wear after a dozen or so trips. If you're going to kayak or canoe more than a few times a year, this is a must have and much better design than most others on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cadillac of kayak carts. I've got this cart and also the smaller, mini version from Wheeleez. I use the mini when I need to stow the cart in my hatch, but if I don't need to stow it, I use this cart. The wheels are so big and so soft, that the cart floats on top of sand like it's nothing. It's worth every penny. Scott

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money With the drought conditions over the past few years, this cart has been a plus with the parking areas far from the water line. It is super lightweight and the soft "cushy" tires make the cart easy to manuever through sand and rocky surfaces alike.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cautiously Optimistic I have an older version of this cart with smaller tires. The basic design looks the same. From the photo, it appears a 2nd kickstand has been added to the design. My version has one kickstand and it is not very secure. When trying to place the kayak onto the cart, the kickstand continually gave way, resulting in the cart closing and falling flat. It takes several tries to successfully place the kayak onto the cart. Unless strapped down very tight, the cart will twist under the kayak, requiring an adjustment along the way. The most annoying problem is the valve stems for inflating the tires. They are located very close to the rim of the wheel and push into the rim when trying to attach an air pump. To get the tires inflated, I had to pull the valve stem out with a pair of needle nose pliers and hold it until I could get the air pump attached. This often takes several tries. The tires always needed inflation between uses so this was a constant annoyance. A can of fix a flat helped seal the tires so that they did not need to be inflated quite as often. The cart is adequate and does its job - just a little frustrating to use. Hopefully this newer design, such as the dual kickstand that is tethered to the frame have alleviated some of the problems with the earlier model. Check the valve stems with a pump though to make sure the tires are easy to fill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great Works great everywhere, including the sandy beaches. Great help when moving a kayak in and out of storage.

How does this cart handle on asphalt? I have to pull it about 400 yards on asphalt in order to get it to the beach and then a 150 yard pull on the sand.

Asked by: Dean the Dream
Because you have to travel over both asphalt and sand, the beach cart would be the best bet. The wheels should perform just fine on asphalt.

Can the wheeleze cart be used to haul boogie boards and other kid stuff to beach? How would it be pushed without a handle?

Asked by: Beachgrandma
The kayak cart can be used to transport boogie boards. You can push or pull on the cart using the boogie board as your handle.
