Overland Powered Carts Help Improve Safety and Productivity!
Since the first cart rolled off our line in 2008, Overland Carts have been a profit generator for companies. The increased cart capacity (750 lbs) and increased hopper capacity (10 cu. ft.) combine to reduce job labor times. The all electric drivetrain provides ample power which reduces stress on joints and backs. This creates a safer and faster way to get landscape jobs done!
1. Boost Job Site Efficiency – Get more done, faster.
Overland Carts were designed to solve a material handling problem. Standard wheelbarrows are limited either by how much the user can lift or by the hopper capacity. This results in more trips and more strain. The electric powered drivetrain found on Overland Carts solves that problem. The drivetrain provides robust power from the first turn of the throttle. Electric power means clean and full power at all times. There is need to rev up a gas engine, the electric motor smoothly delivers consistent, strong power. The 750 pound cart capacity covers almost any material. For comparison, a 10 cubic foot load of moist dirt weighs 780 lbs.
2. Improve Safety – Safe workers are happy workers
Wheelbarrows are an efficient way to haul heavy loads but they put a significant load on the operator. The result can be back strain or fatigue. We published an article on the safety concerns from repeated wheelbarrow use. The Overland motorized wheelbarrow changes that. With a turn of the throttle, the 750 lb load is moving forward. The power wheelbarrow minimizes back strain and fatigue. This is especially helpful in hot summer months where the Overland can help reduce the risk of heat stroke.
3. Zero Emissions – Zero Maintenance
Motorized wheelbarrows save time, money and labor. However, not all motorized wheelbarrows are created equal, electric power presents numerous clear advantages over gasoline. The electric powered wheelbarrows are emission free. They are also nearly silent in their operation. This allows for starting a job earlier with less noise disturbance in quiet neighborhoods. One additional advantage when compared to gas powered carts involves the necessary maintenance. Overland Powered Carts are maintenance free. Just remember to plug the wheelbarrow in overnight and the battery will be fully charged for the day. There are no oil or air filters to change, squeaky belts to replace or gas cans to haul around. Spend less time doing maintenance and more time working.
4. Versatile Platform – Endless Possibilities
Overland took plenty of time developing the powered chassis. The drivetrain is so easy to operate and so powerful, customers have found tons of uses for the cart. The versatility is increase even more when the wheelbarrow hopper is removed. This is a 10 second operation on most carts. The result is a base chassis. A full line of accessories are available to ensure your investment is maximized. Overland offers a flat steel platform that easily attaches to the cart. A simple piece of plywood is a good solution as well, once mounted in place. Overland also offers a side dump mount that allows the hopper to be rotated for dumping along a flower bed.
5. Warranty – Invest with confidence
Each component of the Overland Cart is built to a heavy duty spec. The electric motor, bucket and chassis are all tops in the industry. Overland offers a one year free replacement on all components. The chassis extends pas that with a three year warranty. Invest with confidence in the Overland Cart and enjoy profits immediately and in the future.
