This Easter, in addition to new goat kids, we traded in our old electric farm utility vehicle and upgraded to a new model. We got the old vehicle in 2010 as a used vehicle, and although it’s worked well as a farm utility vehicle, it had a couple of drawbacks.
It had low clearance and was not the peppiest of vehicles, so it sometimes had a hard time making it up the slope from our lower pasture area to the house (particularly in snow or ice).
So, the new cart has much higher clearance and is a peppier vehicle (the new cart is shown in the upper two photos to the right, while the old one is shown in the lower photos).
We liked the fact that the cart was electric and didn’t need gas as well as the dumping bed on the back. So, we got the same features in the new cart.
The vehicle is powered by nine batteries (72 Volts), has the charger on-board, and has a load capacity of 900 pounds. We’ve found it very convenient for cleaning out goat stalls, chicken coops, creating compost piles, weeding the garden, and just doing general chores around the farm (and did I mention that it doesn’t need gas?). And the new vehicle is definitely much peppier – it goes up and down the hill without any problems!
