Frequently asked questions
Q. Can I drive this buggy on the road?
A. Yes, for an additional fee, they can be road registered prior to delivery. You will need to provide evidence of valid insurance.
Q. What type of terrain can the Work Buggy cope with?
A. Almost everywhere, thanks to the all-wheel drive, lockable differential, nitrogen filled shock absorbers, powerful steering and high torque drive. Expect what you get from a normal quad bike but with shelter in the snow and rain!
Q. Does it have a winch?
A. Yes, this can be fitted on request and for a charge. It has a pulling power of 1600 kilos (3527llbs) and is powered separately from the main batteries, so it does not affect the power of the vehicle.
Q. What happens about charging them?
A. All our vehicles can be charged from a standard 13amp electrical supply, and although each has its own characteristics, it typically takes 6-8 hours to charge fully from flat. As with all battery charging, during the first hour or two the current draw is at its highest, reducing to a 'trickle' for the remainder of the charging period. Depending on the type and duration of the work being undertaken, our vehicles will all comfortably last for a full days work, most for much longer. In any event, we recommend always placing vehicles on charge overnight. Electric Wheels can advise on setting up 'charging stations' at large events which can help to establish a charging regime on site, thus avoiding starting a working day only to be met with a flat battery!
The Work Buggy has an on-board charger, fed by a cable under the bonnet. This cable has a 16a 'male' plug on it and is also supplied with a 16-13amp adaptor. This machine has gel-filled lead acid batteries, arranged to give 48v. At peak these machines draw around 6 amps.
Q. What climb can the Work Buggy cope with?
A. The full load climb is 30%
Q. Can I get a full day's work out of a full battery?
A. In our experience, yes easily. In fact, some of our customers estimate it is more like 3 full days. Of course this depends on the type of work it's doing and the terrain. We recommend that the battery is always charged overnight, regardless of how much work it has done during the day.
Q. Does the Work Buggy have safety beepers fitted?
A. Yes, there's an alarm to tell you if the driver isn't wearing a seatbelt, and an audible warning when the buggy is reversing. There is an audible sound when the indicators/hazard lights are operating.
Q. Can I get an enclosed cab and doors?
A. Yes, for an additional cost - please enquire.
