Cart barely fits my 2015 Outback due to the new scupper inserts.
Built very flimsy, the welds holding it together are terrible and
definitely won't last. Cart would be overpriced at half of what it
costs. Won't be purchasing any other carts from Hobie, ever. But
just to be clear, ACK customer service is awesome and has nothing
to do with my dissatisfaction with Hobie's lack of quality control.
With the low water levels in California due to the drought the Hobie
Plug-in Cart makes it easy for me to get my Mirage Outback down
to the water to fish.
It works great, but bogs down a little in loose sand. Much better than
the homemade one I had been using.
Mine works well, used 10 or 20
times so far no issues. You
can also make this from PVC,
but the Hobie version is metal
and seems very durable. Will
see if any issues like the
previously poster had, Im sure
ACK will help you out !
This is the cart to have when
you need to drag your kayak
to in my case the fishing spot.
Strong wheels plugs into the
Hobie kayak holes and can be
broken down for transport.
This is a step up from the one
you normally get but worth
I bought this cart for my PA. I figured that
it would be worth the price. However, after
using it only 4 times the little cap/retention
pin shown in the photos fell apart.
Can't imagine not having the
cart. My 14 ft PA is still a
beast but the cart makes it
manageable. There's nothing
worse than carrying a heavy
kayak after a long day on the
water. One tip if you haul your
kayak in your truck bed, insert
the cart while the kayak is still
in the truck bed and secure it
with a strap. Then you don't
have to wrestle the kayak on
its side once its on the ground.
Now if I can just find an easy
way to insert the cart once I'm
pulling it out of the water.
I am very happy that I chose
to buy the Hobie Heavy Duty
Pug-in Cart for my Hobie
Mirage Oasis Tandem Kayak.
The Kayak is quite heavy and
the wheels are very strong and
easy to put on and take off,
Bought to replace a standard
Hobie cart after the welds
failed. This cart is much more
substantial, and easier to
maneuver over rough terrain.
Haven't tried it in the sand, but
I suspect it wouldn't be the
best option there.
Works great, saves your back.
No reason to try after market carts, other name
brands, etc. I fish out of a Hobie PA and it's pretty
heavy, this cart works exceptionally well with this
model, so lighter models will work even better!
the best I have tried. Is very
strong and love the solid wheels
