This autumn, Etesia aim to make the lives of contractors, landscapers and groundcare professionals easier with the launch of a new revolutionary 100% electric wheel barrow, which is available with a range of attachments to tackle a wide variety of jobs.
Power comes from a 24V 1000W battery with two forward and two reverse speeds up to 6kp/h. Fitted with either wheels or ‘caterpillar tracks’, this is a truly a multi-function, ‘go anywhere’ tool, which can transport heavy material in the skip section and water or liquid material in the tank section, be used as a raised work bench by folding down the side panels, or transport tools in the tool rack and be used to tip waste material.
Featuring the same dashboard fitted on the Etesia M2E electric Bahia ride-on mower, the wheel barrow is controlled by an eelectronic management system which incorporates a dynamic brake for safe deceleration. The park brake is mechanically integrated within the transaxle and controlled by the power shutdown. A ‘dead man’ function, meaning that when the command panel is released, the machine comes to a stop completes the extensive safety features.
Etesia estimate that when fully loaded (200kgs), the battery will last up to five hours.
Optional accessories available include a snow blade, scarifier, and side extension / side rail and spray lance.
