    Other options;
    Assistant Push only manual chair $2500 - https://www.topmobility.com/de-bug-s...IaAmWyEALw_wcB

    Power chair with trax (off road/beach, looks like fun) $25k - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4QEl_IIZZs
    I'd like one just for play.

    Beach mat $650 - 10 x 36" sq - https://accesstraxsd.com/product/beach-trax/
    I need this for deep/loose gravel in pathway to my garage. Currently have roll roofing on gravel. Looks OK for a year, then starts to look trashy.

    I've seen a Freedom Trax. Narrow track tread width and tracks are close together = soft sand = stuck. Might work well in deep/plush grass or other surfaces hard to push.

    Fuentes - Have you had the opportunity to run it thru deep sand? The beaches I go to are pretty much in deep sand. I can drive my 4WD thru the sand, but when I get to where I want to stop on the beach, its a mutha to get around on the manual.

    FWIW, John (Fuentes) has numerous videos of him using it at the beach posted on Instagram, maybe he can post some here.

    I think with an add on its not really convenient as what do you do with the unit once your off the sand?

    I have seen used Frontier x5 for a lot less!

    Have you seen Magic Mobility?

    Its amazing to be able to roll on the sand and then roll to dinner in the same chair!
