Battery-Powered Cart Saves Your Back
I had some back and hernia issues and needed something to help me, says poultry farmer Ken Haller of Lebanon, Penn.
I came up with the Power Cart Pro, a self-propelled, battery-powered cart that can hold four 5-gal. buckets, Haller says. The buckets can hold feed, water, and even any dead birds you may find in a chicken house.
The cart is battery-operated and self-propelled, and the farmer can walk behind or in front of it as the cart moves.
It travels forward or in reverse, is made of durable aluminum, has a heavy-duty DC motor, and fits through any door at least 28-in. wide.
You can run the motor with power tool batteries, he says. That includes brands like Makita, DeWalt, or Milwaukee, which you may already have on your farm.
The cart has already been a hit with friends and neighbors whove tried it.
Ive made a few for other people, and they loved their carts, Haller says. I buy the components and put them together myself.
At this point, Im shipping them out locally, but would like to extend that and ship them farther, he says.
The Power Cart Pro sells for $2,100.
