The bigger brother of the the highly successful Swift Water Rescue Sled, the Mega Sled offers large volume sponsons to provide unmatched stability on moving water. The open stern provides ease of access for both rescuers and victims, then when needed the WRS developed and Patent Pending "Transom Flap" is lifted to create a fully sealed dry deck area for flood operations.
Fitted all round high strength Stainless Steel D- Rings, for use on Tethered systems and High Lines. The large open deck is capable of fitting a wheel chair and stable enough to transport in flood water with confidence.
Mega Sled has a maximum payload of 1000kg when using the "Transom Flap" and 600kg when in the open configuration.
Pack size is important and the Mega Sled is a company pack size for a craft of this size measuring 120cm x 60cm x 35 cm once packed into its valise.
