A spa sled is a specialized piece of equipment used to move spas and hot tubs. They are made out of special materials such as Teflon, that can withstand the wear and tear of sliding across many different surfaces, such as grass, gravel or asphalt.
They come in various sizes and are great for moving hot tubs, the downside to them, is that they can be expensive to purchase. This is less than ideal for people who may only move their spa once or twice.
A spa sled is made to move a hot tub that is tilted on its side, and they work great on all kinds of surfaces. They can get tubs through many different kinds of areas and obstacles.
The side that touches the spa is made out of material that helps to keep a spa in place. However, it is still important to use two people when moving the spa, to keep it stable and safe.
You’ll get your hot tub on the sled by carefully placing the edge of the spa on it and then gently turning it onto its side on the sled. You may need to make adjustments to get the spa on it just ride.
You can then use the spa sled handles to pull your hot tub, while a helper stabilizes and pushes. A spa sled is a great way to move your spa, but they can be rather difficult to drag through grass, you can remedy this by placing small diameter PVC pipe under the sled to help it roll across the grass.
