NEW Electric Wheelbarrow from Nu-Star MHL
Nu-Star is proud to announce the launch of their first product in a new range of small electric vehicles – The Multiple Utility Vehicle (MUV). A pedestrian operated, battery-powered, electric wheelbarrow.
Shown here with the Wheelbarrow module, MUV was initially conceived in response to requests from our Distributor and Re-seller network for a machine that was sufficiently rugged and reliable for frequent use in the Agriculture and Construction sectors. We have applied our specialist knowledge from the broader Material Handling sector to develop a new pedestrian-operated electric vehicle, on which a range of innovative modular designs may be quickly interchanged.
Features such as industrial sealed-for-life gel batteries, foam-filled puncture-proof tyres, on-board (waterproof) multi-voltage battery charger for global operation, programmable motor controller and electrically powered lift/tip have been taken from our existing range of industrial electric tugs.
Nu-Star’s Managing Director, Matt Smith, explained; “The wheelbarrow is one of the oldest and simplest devices used in and around the house & garden and on building sites across the world. Anybody that has spent a day ‘wheelbarrowing’ will know just how difficult and tiring it can be according to the aches and pains experienced the next morning! It is not just the pushing and pulling involved that requires a lot of effort, lifting & tipping the wheelbarrow, when emptying, require additional effort & place strain on the upper body and back. This is our 21st Century interpretation of the device & encapsulates much of what we have learnt & achieved from our activity in the industrial material handling sector over the last 12 years.”
Developed and field-tested over the last 18 months, MUV – Electric Wheelbarrow is now available for both Sale, short & long-term Hire.
Further modules are currently being developed & tested and will be announced over coming months as the MUV range is expanded.
