Oxford College has taken delivery of an EP 500 from ePowerTrucks.
The EP 500 pedestrian controlled electric platform truck is perfect for indoor and outdoor use.
Great stability, 500kg capacity, 12m range with a full load on a single charge.Quick simple recharging. Comes with a 240V charger suitable for a domestic 3 pin plug. Approx 4hr charging time.
Can be left on charge overnight, the charger has auto-cutoff. Zero emissions, silent running, low maintenance.
Ramps aren’t a problem as the EP 500 can handle a 20% gradient with a 300kg load. Engaged by a simple thumb control (forward/reverse) and steered by a tiller arm, the EP 500 electric platform truck range is simply designed and easy to control.
Safety features are standard. If the operator releases the handle, even on a slope the EP 500 range stops immediately.
The tiller arm automatically returns to its upright position when released, triggering the automatic cutoff. This is also activated if contact is made with the red safety button at the end of the tiller arm.
