Three Answers to Common Questions

1. What is an Overland Cart?

An Overland Cart is an electric powered utility cart that utilizes a rechargeable battery pack to drive an electric motor.  Overland Carts were established in 2008 with a focus on electric power.  An Overland Cart starts with a basic powder coated chassis manufactured at Granite Industries in Archbold, OH.  The chassis is formed, cut , welded and powder coated all under one roof for maximum quality control and faster production.   The all electric powertrain is then added to each chassis. C27-chassis-800The powertrain consists of a battery pack and transaxle.  The rechargeable battery pack powers the transaxle.  Each sealed transaxle includes a differential and motor.  The construction of the transaxle ensures that there are no exposed gears, chains or belts.  The transaxle then drives the wheels.  The power is all controlled by the customer via a throttle on the handlebars.  There is an e-stop for emergency stops or to simply cut the power to the unit at the end of a day.

What’s the advantage of an electric drivetrain?
The electric motor and differential are combined together in one transaxle to help keep things simple.  The unit is sealed from the factory and is maintenance free.  Gas powered motors require continual maintenance.  The oil must be changed, air filters need to be swapped, gas filters get clogged, the list goes on and on.  Electric power is simple, clean and effective.  There isn’t a pull start or a choke to engage, simply pull out the e-stop, select your direction, and twist the throttle.  Electric power provides ample power across the entire powerband and ensures the cart is able to handle loads up to 750 pounds.

What about the buckets?
Overland has had a long standing relationship with Brentwood Industries.  They are industry leaders in wheelbarrow buckets.  Using an extremely tough UV test high-density polyethylene material the buckets have stood the test of time.  Brentwood buckets weigh half as much as steel but yet are just as strong and hold up better to the elements.  Clean up on an Brentwood is a snap and takes about 30 seconds with a hose.  The Brentwood buckets come standard on our C or Commercial series line of carts.

The R series or Residential series have a lighter weight plastic hopper.  The hoppers are not as rugged but still provide ample strength and performance.

2.  What Overland Carts Get the Free Battery Upgrade?

The 12 amp battery back is standard equipment on the following Overland Cart chassis’s: C27, C44, R27, and R44.  All of these carts will be shipping with upgraded battery packs for the month of August.  The Power Dump and 4WD models already have the extended range battery packs as standard equipment.  The C27, C44, R27, and R44 series carts are some of the best selling carts Overland offers.

This is a $100 upgrade free of charge!  The 22 Amp battery provides longer run times and less frequent charging.   The extended range battery pack will easily last the entire day in most applications (8-11 hours).  There are two 12 volt, 22 amp batteries in series that create the power to propel the cart.  The steel battery boxes are made in house at Archbold, Ohio and are prewired to ensure the batteries stay connected and protected.

3.  What are the different models?

Overland offers a wide variety of models to ensure each customer gets a cart that will best meet their needs.

The R-Series Garden Carts is our base line of carts.  They offer all the safety features found on the higher end carts but are more economical and simpler to use.  The white hoppers are rugged and built well but are not quite as industrial as the Brentwood hoppers.  The carts come with light duty turf tires that keep the width at 24 inches for optimal maneuverability.  Dual Ag tires are available for maximum traction applications.  The extended range battery pack extends the battery life from 6-8 hours to 9-11 hours depending on usage.

The C-Series Wheelbarrows are our most popular line of carts.  The angled steel platform, Brentwood hopper, and dual ag tires are customer favorites and work together to create a dynamic cart.  The dual ag tires are standard for maximum traction applications and the best all around performance..  The extended range battery pack extends the battery life from 6-8 hours to 9-11 hours depending on usage.
