IMPORTANT NOTE: We have removed the chest harness from these chairs. They are not a safe addition to a product that floats, and being strapped into a vehicle that floats like this can be dangerous. We do not condone strapping or harnessing anyone into one of our vehicles.

Personal Notes: While this chair can hold 300 lbs, pushing 300lbs on sand is not the same as pushing the weight in a regular wheelchair on hard flat land. To give you an idea, it's like pushing that much weight on a slight grade. The tires have a large footprint, our feet do not. Now, you can always bring snowshoes and get more foot traction, but you'd probably look silly! This is to say, it's not impossible, but I don't want you to think pushing heavy weight on the sand is a cakewalk. In the absence of any other means to get someone on the sand, this is still the best way!
Comfort Notes: My personal opinion from personal use, this is the most comfortable of my rental chairs. When the rider tires, they can lean their head and shoulders back for all-day comfort. Please look at all of my equipment to make sure you consider rider comfort as much as you may consider the use by the attendant doing the pushing. It is wider than any other chair, so it won't fit in a 36" doorway. Tight spots can pose a problem, so consider that. All beach wheelchairs are designed for use on a beach first, and everywhere else comes second. Please set your expectations accordingly. What does this mean? It's not what you use in place of a wheelchair if you intend to use it on the sand, in a restaurant, or on the city streets. People do use my beach wheelchairs to move around resorts, to sit at outdoor patio tables, etc. But please don't expect it will be a swiss army knife of wheelchairs!
