Old Town, ME – October 12, 2018 –Old Town, the century-old leader in innovative watercraft products, has expanded their warranty on the award-winning Pedal drive to an industry leading 5 years. The PDL pedal drive is the most advanced and reliable kayak pedal-propulsion technology on the market, built with Old Town’s expertise and over 120 years of experience.
“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. “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, maneuvering effortlessly while keeping their 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 intuitive patented docking system installs in seconds and can be easily tipped up in shallow water making even the tightest waterways easy to manage
Old Town designed the PDL drive with exacting tolerances and then put it through exhaustive lab and field testing before its launch in 2016. The most advanced easy-to-use pedal system on the market, now has an industry leading 5-year warranty. Choosing an Old Town PDL kayak has never been easier.
