Progress Rail has added another electric vehicle to their existing fleet from ePowerTrucks. They have recently purchased a D1 electric wheelbarrow.
The D1 electric wheelbarrow is designed to work with loads up to 400Kg.
The frame is made from steel and powder coated with exterior paint. We have worked hard to create the right balance between the load and the wheels to give the customers confidence when using the product which allows them to maneuver the wheelbarrow easily.
The D1 is supplied with a key for easy startup, a red safety deadman lever, emergency stop button, LED to show the battery power status, low-level battery acoustic detector, and an external plug for a fast and easy charging.
The 600W motor has an electromagnetic brake that automatically engages when the power is turned off, this brake is more than adequate on slopes up to 30% when the barrow is fully loaded.
The gear train is in a sealed oil bath, eliminating maintenance; the electric control unit is in an enclosed casing allowing the machine to be cleaned without causing short circuits.
