***Important*** Alpha and Beta Carts Wolftrack Dog Carts are not intended for racing or competition. They are fabricated to be used for the recreational dry land musher only.
The K 9 Cruiser below is a racing competition rig.
Due to the weight of these carts, it is not intended for single dog teams. A general guideline is that pulling dogs can comfortably pull about two and a half to three times it’s own weight. That is the combined weight of the rig plus rider. Some can easily do more and others may refuse to pull. Please keep this in mind as you review this information.
How much do the dog carts weigh?
Mid-sized rig (the beta rig) weighs about 75# total. Of that 75#, the fork is about 22# and the deck is about 53# ( the alpha model is larger and the deck weighs about 5# more).
What are the dimensions of the carts?
The alpha model is approximately 42” wide to outside of the wheels and about 5ft long. This model has 8” wide foot platforms with a 16” wide opening between them. The beta model is approximately 34” wide to outside of wheels and the same length. This model has 6” wide foot platforms and 11” wide opening between them.
Yes, each model comes with a bar style foot operated friction brakes which engages both rear tires. Stepping harder on that same bar applies the parking brake for safety.
No, the dog carts do not fold down but they do come apart easily by removing one ¾ inch pin that holds the fork to the base. This allows for ease of transportation and takes up less space in your vehicle. They fit easily in the back of most SUV’s , or on a rear hitch carrier.
The deck of each rig will be black. I do not do a powder coat paint finish. You can choose the color of the front fork. I use Rustoleum Enamel spray paint. Whatever color that is available from this company can be a color choice. I will only use what is locally available to keep cost down.
Yes, for an extra charge I can add a small water bowl shelf. Either model has an optional drop-in section to convert to a full deck.
I buy the tires from Tractor Supply Company. You can get replacement tires and replacement wheel bearings from this store.

How long will it take to receive my rig?
I work full time away from home and build rigs on the weekends. I ask for 30 days advance notice but it will vary based on current orders. Please state approximate timeline that you would be ready for your rig if there is a waiting period. Occasionally some customers have snow to sled on and would let other orders get filled first. State that in the customer comments section on the order form.
How much for shipping?
Shipping costs will vary depending on your location. Shipping, handling, and packaging costs will be quoted upon your request. I can give you an estimate based on your location.
If I submit an order am I contracted to complete the purchase?
It is not a contracted agreement until I receive your payment 1-2 weeks prior to beginning construction of your rig.
