Old Town, the century-old watercraft brand, has expanded its warranty on the award-winning PDL Pedal drive to an industry-leading five years.
“We believe so much in our drive system, that we’re offering a warranty that is three years beyond our competition. The drive warranty, coupled with our lifetime hull warranty means that we truly have the best warranty on the market,” says Brand Manager Ryan Lilly. “Pedal kayaks have taken kayak fishing by storm. We designed the PDL drive with the fisherman in mind and to meet three critical objectives: maximum boat control, ease of use, and reliability.”
Available in two models, the PDL is maintenance free and saltwater safe, requiring no additional upkeep, said the company.
“If used in saltwater, we recommend that you rinse it down with freshwater after use,” Lilly said. “Otherwise, no tools, no grease, no time is required to maintain the drive system.”
Kayak anglers can install and deploy the PDL drive in seconds, allowing them to maneuver effortlessly while keeping hands free to make the most of their time fishing on the water. Topping out at an impressive 5.5 mph, this prop-drive operates in forward and reverse by simply pedaling forward or backward. The patented docking system installs in seconds and can be easily tipped up in shallow water.
