Electric Wheelbarrow / Mini-Dumper

Specifically designed for the industrial market, the MUV Electric powered Wheelbarrow is a motorised wheelbarrow, power barrow or mini-dumper, capable of moving 400Kg for up to five miles. It has an electrically powered drive and electrically powered tip mechanism and may be fitted with either a galvanized steel or, industrial-plastic tub.

Being electrically powered, it is powerful, safe, quiet, has no exhaust gases and there are no handlebar vibrations (all of which are significant limitations to the use of petrol/diesel engine powered wheelbarrows).

No driving licence is required for use, the MUV Powered Wheelbarrow can be quickly loaded into a van or, onto a plant trailer (using 3 scaffold planks, a tail-lift or, ramp) and at just 810mm in width, it will fit through most external doors, making it a ideal for accessing confined internal construction projects.

These attributes make it ideal for the following applications:

  • Small works in construction and flooring such as wheel-barrowing concrete
  • Large gardening projects and shifting logs
  • Crop harvesting in glasshouses & polytunnels
  • Moving mulch, stone, aggregates, sand, wood chip & plants on landscaping projects
  • Moving animal feedstuffs and mucking out in stables, fams and small holdings
  • Removing spoil from tunnelling operations
  • General industrial material and scrap hauling

The powered wheelbarrow tub is available in both galvanised steel and moulded industrial plastic and these are quickly interchangeable, via two detent pins on the sub-frame.

The on-board, waterproof, battery charger will accept both 110V or 220V input - simply change the 'flying lead' to suit the plug type. The battery charger will automatically adjust to either voltage and is specifically programmed to optimise the two maintenance-free, sealed, 90Amp Hour gel batteries in the machine.
