Product overview

Real Kiwi ingenuity from Kaitaia, this is the definition of working smarter!

Based on the Tradesman wheelbarrow – the premium wheelbarrow of the construction industry for decades – the e-Barrow, even when fully loaded, will power up a steep hills and ease down tricky inclines without breaking a sweat. It’s deal for building and construction, home or lifestyle - basically anywhere you want to work faster and easier.

The 500W brushless motor is sealed against the weather, while the 48V 10Ah lithium battery is fully removable for security and charging. In fact thanks to the ingenious regenerative braking feature, the battery recharges when travelling downhill on the brake - giving you even longer running time.

Open the variable thumb throttle and you’ll be powering loads up to 160kg around the site without breaking a sweat.

Built tough, the 72 litre plastic pourer tray exceeds the highest drop test standard for plastic trays (Impact resistance factor 25). The hot-dip galvanised steel frame is paired with non-slip handgrips, puncture-proof PU tyre and large, free-running, high quality, precision sealed ball bearings, so you know it’s built to handle whatever life on site throws at it.

Order your e-Barrow today and power through any job, all while saving your back.

Hi What happens if you get a puncture is it easy to fix
It is a 'flat free' tyre.

how fast can it go? and will it handle sand hills ?
Reasonable walking pace, it really depends on how steep etc but it's not designed to excel in soft steep sand put it that way. If you can push a regular wheelbarrow up the slope you have in mind with difficulty, then this will make it easier.

Can this barrow pull itself up steps?
No it cannot, but it can assist when carrying loads forwards up hills.

My builder loves it!!! He won’t be giving it back

E Barrow

Brilliant, works really well, easy to use, great up hills and stairs. Will save me heaps of effort and sore muscles. Needs a second strip of metal on non-battery side to stop annoying plastic noise when empty

This barrow Torques (Talks) for itself

Only had a months work out of it yet but very happy so far. At full speed, I need to jog to keep up. Sturdily built. I'm building on a "steep" hill so lots of ups and downs. Being able to brake going downhill is much safer now. Pulls uphill beautifully, even loaded. The tyre is a "flat free" tyre. It's hard. No bounce or give over bumps and you get used to that. But you will never need to pump it up or worry about nails. One criticism (that I will easily fix and is a recommendation for them to do), is that with the hard ride, the triangular battery box is bolted at the top only. It bounces and bangs with the bumps. I will glue in a couple of very hard foam blocks to stop the movement. They have put a soft foam strip on one side but not enough. Needs to be firmer and on both sides. Regardless, still think the barrow is a five star. Price is obviously on the high side, but with the work it will be doing for me, I will live a couple of years longer.

I was unimpressed, for the the money l paid l expected better workmanship of the installation of electrical components
