Push Mobility beach access expert review
The Sandcruiser beach wheelchair is a portable and robust beach wheel that's been on the Australian market for many years. What really sets it apart for us is the adjustable nature of the chair, it's high safety rating with anti-tip and breaking and it's high grade stainless construction. The Sandcruiser is a popular choice for many surf clubs throughout Australia, and families looking for a portable chair.
Whilst the chair isn't designed to float, it does offer an excellent experience on the beach and in shallow waters. To gain the longest life out of the fabric, we recommend a wash down after each use and storing the fabric out of direct sunlight.
