Our Industrial Wheelbarrow is tough, durable & powerful!

C34-10A-PD-PowerDumpAt ElectricWheelbarrows.com, we have recently added to our line of quality self-propelled carts, wagons, and wheelbarrows. The latest product is the C34-10A-PD self-propelled electric wheelbarrow which has features that no other cart offers in our lineup of equipment.  It is quickly becoming a favorite of our customers, and it is because of the three new features:  an industrial strength Four-Wheel Drive, an immense Power Dump mechanism, and an incredibly durable Extended Range Battery.

dual_ag_tireThe first quality is included in the name of this tough wheelbarrow.  Our new Industrial Wheelbarrow earns the name because of its ability to travel over any terrain while hauling a huge load of material.  This beast of a wheelbarrow has a Four-Wheel Drive train, so it has traction on steep hills, snow, and mud.  The Industrial Wheelbarrow also comes not with four, but a total of eight wheels.  Our Dual Ag Tires combine two 13” tires together for improved traction on all four corners of the wheelbarrow.  These deep grooved tires bite deep into sand, sawdust, and sludge so you will be productive and efficient while working.  This combination of eight beefy tires attached to a four-wheel drive train allows you to reach speeds up to nearly 2.5 miles per hour which will help you finish any big job quickly and effectively.  Plus, we have added an articulated frame to this model.  The pivot joint at the rear of the hopper allows this unit to make tighter turns outside between bales of straw or inside between stacked shelving units.  No matter where you use it, this feature makes maneuvering a heavy load easier and safer.

The immense hauling ability of the Industrial Wheelbarrow is another quality our customers seem to love.  The 10 cubic foot hopper has a 750 pound hauling capacity.  That is twice its own weight!  With the new Industrial Wheelbarrow, you don’t even have to dump that weight because we have included an electronic lift to do the job for you.  No more jerking, lifting or straining to drop a heavy payload.  The Power Dump mechanism allows you to tip your load exactly where you want it with the push of a button.  The heavy duty lift also gives you control on how fast or slow you wish to spread your load.C34-10A-PD

Finally, the incredible toughness and durability of the Industrial Wheelbarrow cannot be found in any other similar unit.  The large hopper is constructed from a high density Polyethylene which will provide years of use without cracking.  A powder coated frame will resist rust and damage, and the enclosed gear box prevents dust and dirt from stopping you cold in your tracks.  But best of all is the incredible Extended Range Battery.  Because of the four wheel drive train and Power Dump mechanism, the battery on the Industrial Wheelbarrow gets quite a workout.  So we have included a battery with a much longer time of use.  With its extended range, you can expect to run this unit a remarkable 11 hours continuously depending upon the load and terrain.  And that run time extends to an amazing 16 hours or more when the cart is used in a stop/start fashion.

An industrial strength Four-Wheel Drive, an immense Power Dump mechanism, and an incredible Extended Range Battery are just some of the reasons customers are falling in love with the Industrial Wheelbarrow.  It is perfect for any heavy job you need to perform.  From construction to farming, no matter what your industry is, the Industrial Wheelbarrow will make the job easier and safer than any other device.  So dump your old wheelbarrow, and buy an electric cart, wagon or wheelbarrow from us at electricwheelbarrows.com!


Tire Selection For Your Electric Wheelbarrow Is Key

At ElectricWheelbarrows.com, we receive numerous questions about our products.  Besides electric powered wheelbarrows, we sell electric powered wagons, self-propelled trash carts, and accessories for our carts.  Most customers, however, are interested in our wheelbarrows, and prospective clients usually ask about features of these battery-powered carts.  Typically, customers ask about the cubic size of the hopper.  Or they wish to know about the maximum load a wheelbarrow will carry.  Unfortunately, many people don’t ask about perhaps the most important feature:  tires.

Terrain and traction matter

 Think about it.  Would you drive your car on a muddy, off road course that was meant for four wheeling trucks?  Of course not!  So when you are hauling up to 750 pounds of material in one of our wheelbarrows, traction and terrain matter.  To determine what type of tire you need on your wheelbarrow, consider how you will use the unit.  We offer three styles of drive tires:  Turf tires, Mud Hog tires, and Dual Ag tires. Besides our no flat swivel tires that our units use as follow along tires, drive tires pull the unit up, down, and over the terrain and provide traction through elements such as mud and snow.  Let’s take a look at the uses of each tire.

Turf Tiresturf_tire

Turf tires were meant for use on level terrain.  These rubber tires use an inflatable tube inside of them to provide an easy rolling surface.  Inflated at 32 PSI, the turf tires have no trouble rolling across your lawn to deliver mulch to your landscaped beds or top soil to your garden.  The tread on this tire is similar to the tread on a riding lawnmower tire, so it will not damage your yard.  In fact, the grounds crew of the San Diego Padres currently uses one of our wheelbarrows equipped with turf tires.  The ground crew reports no tread marks on their infield whenever they have to repair the pitcher’s mound or throw sand on the base paths to keep them dry.  Our C27-7T Power Garden Wheelbarrow uses this drive tire.

mud_hog_tire Mud Hog Tires

Need a tire to deliver a payload through the mud of a barn yard?  The Mud Hog drive tire will do just that and more.  Looking like the tire from an all terrain vehicle, the knobby tread of this 12.5” tire gives you the traction you need on slippery surfaces.  Plus, it can climb a 3:1 slope with up to 500 pounds of material, so a hilly terrain is no problem for this drive tire.  Our Power Wheelbarrow C27-8M comes equipped with the Mug Hog drive tire.

Dual Ag Tires

If you plan on using your electric wheel barrow in a variety of terrains and elements, you need Dual Ag drive tires.  Over 90% of our customers purchase units with this type of tire because they are so versatile.  These 13.5” tires come as a set of four (instead of two) drive tires, and once inflated to 31 PSI, they provide a wide stable base to cut through up to 5” of mud or up to 8” of snow.  Like the Mud Hog tire, the Dual Ag tire has no problem going up a 3:1 incline while bearing 500 pounds of payload.  On a level terrain, the Dual Ag tire will carry up to 750 pounds.  Our Large Power Wheelbarrow, unit C27-10A, is just one unit to usedual_ag_tires this drive tire.

Tread lightly or bite deeply?

So when you select a product from ElectricWheelbarrows.com, don’t forget to consider how and where you will use of the unit.  Do you need a tire to bite into the ground for better traction or do you wish to tread lightly on your lawn?  This is just one aspect you should consider.  If you have further questions, explore our Frequently Asked Question tab that can be found here.  If you still have unanswered questions, then there’s no better source of wheelbarrow expertise than our owner Tom Short.  Feel free to call him anytime at 419-378-9122 and he’ll be sure to answer any turf, terrain or tire questions that you may have.  Not a phone person?  Email him at sales@electricwheelbarows.com and he’ll quickly respond with the answers you need!
