Beach Cart


Has anyone made - and willing to share - pictures/ideas of a beach cart they made?

I need to design and build a cart to lug all of the chairs and beach toys along with some adult beverages. I want to use some wheels from www.wheeleez.com and build a nice cart from PVC.

I was wondering if anyone else has done something original.

That's nice...But, a little overkill for what I'm thinking

Re: Beach Cart


I wouldn't think PVC would be strong enough over the long run. I did find this: http://www.islandbeachgear.com/fish-...each-cart.html

It looks like it could be converted to weeleez pretty simply. Price looks good for what it is. Or it could be the platform that you use to fit all the things you plan on carrying.

Re: Beach Cart


I see them a lot with the guys fishing but they're a little too small to carry all of the beach stuff. Meaning, it isn't just the three of us, but the whole family at times: maybe 10 chairs plus towels and buckets, shovels, etc.

The ice cream guy uses a nice cart with the big wheels, all made from PVC. In thinking of using PVC cement, and then following up with a small screw or two at each connection point for added support.

I've seen quite a few carts made from PVC so I'm hoping it's strong enough.

I don't mind paying for something, but considering the cost of materials, I hate paying such a high price for something I can build.

I drew up some ideas.

This will be my winter project for next summer.

Re: Beach Cart


A few years back I used to jet ski race for IJSBA & APBA..

Guys made PVC stands for the jet skis to sit on to keep them out of the surf so sand wouldn't get into the intake.... Just glue no screws and they were extremely strong.
