A high strength quality wheel system built to explore.
. Very fast, reliable and easy to use action - especially in cold and/or rough conditions afloat.
. Low profile for appearance and unhindered outboard operation.
. Automatic locking in both up and down positions.
. The retracted wheel is also automatically locked for operational safety.
. One handed operation with large easily accessible
quick release catches and handles.
. Fast (5 seconds) removable option available (shown).
. Integral handle for clean hands.
. Can be shallow water retracted and deployed with the wheel grounded.
. Shallow water drive match for most outboards.
. Light weight (they float) with all round strength.
. Quality components.
. Made in New Zealand.

The Patented BEACHMASTER Autolock system is light and strong as well as being extremely fast, easy and clean to operate without touching the wheels.
Their unique over-centre locking mechanism compactly encapsulates and locks the wheel against the transom when retracted, then extends in use to form a cross braced frame for high strength in all directions.
Launch, beach and move your boat around on your own wherever you venture and prevent difficult, costly repairs caused by dragging your boat ashore.
They are designed to be used with outboards in shallow water drive mode so they can operate close to the beach.
Their very fast and easy to use auto-locking action up and down is an essential feature for launching and landing on surf beaches or fast flowing rivers or when conditions afloat are rough.
The retracted wheel is locked and prevented from spinning which provides a secure handhold for safety when working around the outboard.
The easy to reach non-jamming up-and-away motion of the mechanism enables the wheels to be deployed and retracted in the shallowest possible water. Beachmasters are not jammed by the buoyancy of the tire or grounding as can be the case with other systems.
The low compact retracted position of the wheels against the transom allows for normal unhindered operation of outboard motors.
They have large, quality, 4 ply pneumatic wheels (265mm diameter) with polypropylene rims and nylon bearings for durability in marine environments and Butyl tubes for reliability.
Being self contained there are no separate parts to stow or lose or pins to fit. They are always instantly ready for action.
For strength, durability and light weight the system is manufactured with marine grade boat building Aluminium.The mounting bracket measures 137mm x 200mm (5.5" x 8") and is effectively designed to distribute the wheel loads to 4 widely spaced bolts.
Recommended for boat lengths up to 4 meters (12').
Recommended for outboards up to 15 hp.
Recommended working load 100 kg (220 lbs)/set.
Maximum load limit 200 kg (440 lbs)/set on hard smooth surfaces for both fixed and removable mount types.
Fixed Mount Weight: 4.4 kg set of two. Shipping weight 4.9 kg.
Removable Mount Weight: 4.8 kg set of two. Shipping weight 5.3 kg.
The removable mount option is the ideal solution for use with roll up inflatable boats and other applications where it is desirable to easily remove the wheel system from the transom. 8 small stainless steel mounting studs (3/4",19mm diameter) remain permanently attached to the transom. The wheel brackets are placed onto the studs and locked in position with thumb catches.
4 Studs per wheel (8 per set)
Stud fitted with Pan head bolt
