Sherpa Power Barrow - Battery Powered Tipping WheelbarrowThis 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!

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

"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.
November 2016 - The Sherpa Power Barrow appeared on Channel 5's The Gadget Show, where Jason Bradbury declared "Man, I love this barrow!".
