C-Tug kayak cart is outstanding! Very lightweight and compact.
Comes apart and goes back together very quickly and easily by
hand. Stores easily in most kayak hatches. The pivoting pads will
accept any hull size/shape and the seat belt holds the kayak
securely in place.
Great cart at a great price. Outstanding service and delivery once
again from ACK!
These wheels are terrific. They attach to the kayak quickly and
manage bumpy pathways with ease. Well worth the cost!
Will you use this product on a sand beach? What they fail to tell you
is how easily sand gets into the wheels where plastic rubs on plastic.
Add a little sand and you have instant wear. Mine is less than a
week old and is already showing degradation even though I am
super careful about washing it off after each use. I also try really
hard not to let it get wet which bring the sand up on the wheels and
dumps it into wheel axles on every turn. Also you will need some
tools to break it down if any sand gets in the cradle mechanism.
Great idea very poor execution if used on sand beaches, just about
everywhere I go!
Definitely not recommended.
One of the pins in the wheel broke on my CTug, and I was heading out
on a five day trip in three days. ACK managed to get a pin delivered to
me before I left, free of charge. I am still in shock, have never had
better customer service from any company ever! ACK rocks!!!!!
This cart works great except for the kickstand, which is pretty much
useless. It will not keep the cart upright on concrete or sand while I
try to get my kayak on it. Such a shame they didn't make a better
kickstand. I need to figure out a way to alter it so it will work.
Goes together and tears down fast. Works well with my slayer 10. Fits
in the dry hatch with room for a life vest and dry bag
I will add that ACK was excellent to deal with as usual, great service.
The C-Tug is a great cart. Easy to use and works great with both
my Jackson Big Rig and Coosa. Works with my Ultimate 14.5 as
well but the hull design of that boat is not ideal for the C-Tug but it
works. Easy to assemble, the strap is simple and effective when
set up properly. Easy to take apart and stow in the hull. I would
buy it again.
The C-Tug worked exactly as I needed it to! This cart is
definately better than the scupper hole models that could
possible put unnecessary wear on the scupper holes. Straps fit
snuggly on my Eagle Run 12' Yak. No slipping when either
pulling or pushing this cart with yak loaded. The assembly time
is amazingly fast and it all fits behind my seat while I'm out on
the water. Great Cart!!
The best thing about this cart is moving your kayak when loaded with
gear. I have a feel-free Lure 11.5 which has a small roller built into
the kayak which works great for moving it around the shop but not
so much on rough ground or when loaded. When on the C-Tug the
kayak is so stable and easy to move. The second best thing about it
is how fast it goes together and comes apart. I like to save money by
DIY but I didnt think I could make a trolley that would come apart
and stow in the hatch like this.
This cart works awesome. I think you have to watch the
installation video. There are some complaints on this cart, mostly
about the straps. If you install the straps as laid out in the video
they won't slip. I have two of them and neither one slips. It is
really neat the way they come apart and easy to put together. We
have only used the carts a few times but I would highly recommend
the cart. I wouldn't recommend any of the other scupper carts as
with all the bouncing and vibration induced during towing it would
enlarge or gouge out the scuppers enough to make it tough for a
scupper plug to seal up.
I'm really impressed with the design, construction and material of
thus cart. Unfortunately it is too low.
I have a 16 foot low volume sea kayak and even though I am only
5'3" when I hold either end the other end hits the ground.
