Sherpa Power Barrow - Battery Powered Tipping Wheelbarrow

Important Information PREORDER - This is a brand new product. Demand for this is product is predicted to be very high. Reserve yours now. Stock Due 14/02/2018

This is a very high quality self propelled cordless electric wheelbarrow cart. It is of very strong durable construction, with heavy gauge tubular steel making up the frame. The galvanized steel tray is on a pivot system, and can be tipped easily. When in use the tray can be locked into position. It has a massive 170 litres capacity - which should be large enough for the toughest jobs. The rear castor type wheels are large and heavy duty. The motor is concealed within the large front wheel. The front tyre is a large chevron tread tractor type tyre for superb grippage.

Controls are easy to use, the variable speed throttle can be operated with one finger. On the other side is a bike-type disc brake control - this means the user can control the descent of the barrow down slopes. The brake can even be locked on.

All in all this is a machine to take some of the back-breaking pain out of building, landscaping, clearing and general labouring.

NEW - Now available is the FLATBED CARRIER accessory - a very useful addition to the Sherpa Electric Barrow - great for carrying boxes, bales, timber etc - see below for details!

August 2009 + Feb 2010 - Mr R Bush writes:
I thought I would drop you a line to say how fantastic the Sherpa is. Your website video sells it rather short and gives no idea of its true potential... I have just used mine to carry most of an entire large tree 200 yards uphill along a very narrow, slippery and tortuous sheep track in the Yorkshire Dales. I estimate each load of trunk sections and logs weighed about 70/80 lbs and the Sherpa powered up the hill without any effort or slipping on the wet leaves. I must have made about 30 trips or more with the battery still going strong on one charge when I'd finished. I am no strong man and 62 years old so this barrow is going to make my life a lot easier for heavy jobs such as these from now on.
Before I purchased the Sherpa I was very keen to know what the actual capabilities of the Sherpa were in terms of battery life and ability to power up hills. My first thoughts being - 'Battery powered? Can't have much pulling power and the battery is probably going to run flat quite quickly if worked too hard.' Here are the facts relating to the heavy hauling job I use my Sherpa for - ferrying large freshly-cut and heavy logs up a narrow and rough sheep-track (only 30 cms wide in some places with a sheer drop on one side and a 45 degree slope on the other a climb of around 60 feet over a distance of some 200 metres:
1. On a single battery charge the Sherpa was still going strong after 30, heavily laden uphill trips
2. It coped with loads of around 50 kg without need to push - the logs in the picture are heavier than they look!
3. My only input was to steer and balance the load
4. The rear castor wheels easily removed, necessary due to the track being so narrow and tortuous
5. Disk brake essential for taking the Sherpa back down the slope
6. The Flat-bed tray even better than the wheelbarrow tray for holding awkward shaped logs and I could see the front wheel for precise steering
7. Chunky pneumatic tyre had plenty of grip for the slippery and bumpy conditions
8. Side and front rails easily removed to give a completely flat load area
9. Only four bolts to undo to swap over tray with flatbed
10. Really solid construction can cope with all of the conditions I have put it through and should see me out!


September 2012 - Mr R. Blay writes: "I purchased a Sherpa Electric wheelbarrow from Mower Magic in 2011 and my father, who has a progressive neurological disorder affecting his gait and balance, has now been using the barrow for a full year. The 3 wheels and tray tipping mechanism provide operational stability in circumstances where a normal barrow would tip over. Meanwhile, the brake and progressive motorised function provide assistance with ascending and descending hills and negotiating rough ground. This electric wheelbarrow has become an essential aid to garden access and mobility and maintained an important aspect of my father's quality of life that would otherwise be largely lost by now. Close to 500 for a wheelbarrow seemed somewhat expensive upon purchasing the wheelbarrow in 2011, but it doesn't seem nearly so expensive a year later."
Yours faithfully R. Blay

December 2012 - Ann writes:
"I am thrilled with the barrow. I have just collected a load of logs from the wood. That probably doesn't sound very remarkable to you, but I normally walk with sticks or crutches with 2 unruly spaniels completely out of control while I cross the lane. I can't put them on leads because they'll pull me over. So the barrow was multitasking: a walking frame, an anchor for dog leads and a load carrier all at the same time. I can now achieve things that had become impossible for me."
Kind regards, Ann

Update from Mr Bush, January 2013:
I felt I had to write to you again to sing the praise of the electric wheelbarrow which I purchased from you in April 2009. You used a video of me on your website ferrying heavy logs up a sheep track here in the Yorkshire Dales. I looked at your website again recently and spotted Alan Titchmarsh modelling one with a chevron tread patterned front tyre. Grip on a grassy slope was the only problem I had with my model. Having purchased a chevron treaded tyre I have to say that the wheelbarrow is unstoppable now on even really boggy ground and uphill too. I am still trundling heavy loads of logs up hill with the aid of the flatbed tray you sent me although I found that I had to extend it even further forward to put the weight of my logs right over the front wheel. It's an even more brilliant machine now with the new tyre.

Update from Mr Bush, January 2015:
Well pleased with my Sherpa and it's still working hard ferrying heavy log loads up a long and steep sheep track for 6 years now. I found the answer to the front wheel spin on inclines is to put all the load as far forward as possible. For my logs I use the flatbed tray which I've extended even further forward for just this purpose and removed the rear wheels. With the chevron tyre there is no lack of grip, even through glutinous mud. A marvelous machine.

Robust and well made but very poor design. Centre of gravity too high and barrow is extrremely unstable when loaded. Handles are set too high making the barrow very difficult to control when loaded.

I use it all the time and it has transformed my ability to garden on our slope as I let it do the work of moving tools, compost, weeds etc up and down the hill. Has also worked well carrying wood from the bottom of a steep slope so it can be split and put in the wood store.

Seems ideal for my purpose i.e. moving soil and compost around my sloping garden. The barrow bucket is described as galvanised but is in fact painted so I hope it will resist scratches.

Works very well and fulfills its function. Too soon to know about durability, but no problems so far. My only reservation is that it is expensive - but there is no real competition.

Having tested this thoroughly on steep forest tracks for several months I can confirm:
-On the flat: Good - can handle medium heavy domestic loads
-Steep inclines - has no traction as power needs to be on the rear wheels
-Steep declines - good as brake is on the front wheel
-Uneven ground/slopes - with medium/heavy loads tips over a lot - quite unstable - ive ordered some 'Adie kids bike stabilisers' to try resolve.
Overall - for for extreme off road you need 4WD/4Wbrakes (which is a lot more expensive) - for domestic non extreme its the cheapest power barrow on the market and good value.
Addendum: There isnt a 4WD/4Wbrake barrow available on the market for under a grand - perhaps an opportunity for entrepeneur?

Great for round the garden, but useless for tipping horse muck onto a pile or into a trailer, because it does not tip far enough and has to be forked out. Going on ebay

Customer Comment:

Difficult to steer when castor wheels are on loose gravel as they have a reduced castor action and load must not overhang the sides of the body or it can overturn. The load needs to be centered towards the front wheel when on a loose or wet surface to avoid wheel spin.Battery charging is very simple.

Great to save my back when poo picking horses field. But it is very slow to push! Takes me almost as long to get down the track as it does to clear the field. Can I have a turbo powered one next time? Having said that - would not be without it. Have had 18 months with no issues.

It is good in muddy fields. Other minor design issue is that poo does not all fall out when you tip up the barrow to empty. Have to scrap some out with fork.

Definitely more positives than negatives though.

The power barrow has exceeded my expectations. it was easy to put together, is well engineered and moves heavy loads around my garden very well. The battery keeps its charge well. We have some professional builders in and they have been using it as well to move stuff around. Everyone is impressed.
