Safety Features

  • SmoothStart – On acceleration, power is applied to the drive tires in a controlled manner ensuring a smooth start each time.
  • HillSense – Allows the cart to be safely used on inclines and declines.  The cart will travel at the speed set by the user, not by the incline or decline.
  • AutoLock – An automatic parking brake locks the wheels when the throttle is not being applied.  This feature prevents the cart from rolling away from the user and also provides easy loading and unloading on inclines and declines.
  • Emergency Stop – The red E-Stop button allows the user to immediately stop the progress of the cart.
  • Four Wheel Design – All Overland Carts have at least four wheels to provide maximum stability.
  • Overload Fuse – There is a built in overload fuse that measures the inputs of the drive system in real time.  If the incline, load, or terrain begins to overwork the motor, a fuse will stop the cart and prevent any damage to the transaxle.
  • Throttle Controlled Braking – The braking is controlled by the throttle, simply let up on the throttle and the cart will slow down to the desired speed.  To brake is automatically applied.
  • Throttle Defaults to Zero MPH – If the throttle is released for any reason, the throttle will automatically return to the zero MPH position and the cart will safely coast to a stop.  AutoLock will then engage and the cart will be secure.
  • No open gears, belts, or hot components – The design of the cart keeps hands safe and prevents possible burns caused by hot engine components.
  • Tested Over Time – Overland Cart has been developing and building carts for 10 years.  We know our carts and have developed them to be as safe as possible.

Additional Features

  • Heavy Duty Attachments – Add attachments as need.  Each attachment is capable of holding 750 pounds.
  • Tool less Removal – Each attachment locks in place with a quick release pin.
  • Easy Start – Simply pull out the red E-stop button on the handle and the cart is immediately ready to drive.
  • Variable Speed Twist Throttle – Similar to a motorcycle throttle.  Very easy to use and to control the speed.
  • Enclosed Gear Box – Gears are enclosed for maximum safety and durability.  The transaxle is sealed for life and does not require any maintenance.
  • Manual Mode – Allows the cart to be operated without battery power.
  • Forward/Reverse – Direction can be selected from the toggle switch on the handlebar.  The cart travels the same speed in either direction.
  • Zero Turn Radius – The open differential allows the cart to be spun in a circle without power being applied, allowing for a true zero turn radius.
  • Near Silent Operation – The electric drive system is almost silent in its operation.
  • IMPROVED Battery Life – 6-8 hours of run time on a standard battery.

Hi Dustin, here is a link to our flat fork attachment for the Transformer: The warranty is as follows: 1 year – Powertrain and Electronics. 3 year – Steel Chassis

How wide is it from the outside of one tire to the outside of the other, I know the specification said 28″ wide, but in the picture looks like the handles are wider than the wheels, the ramp on my truck is 26″ wide.

Jeremy Rupp

Hi Danny, the tires and the handles are the same width. The handles are 28″ wide and the tires are 28″ wide from tire edge to tire edge. Each tire is 6″ wide. Please let us know if you have any additional questions!

Can it go up and down stairs (assuming reverse to go up stairs, forward with braking to go down stairs)?

Jeremy Rupp
2 years 21 days ago

Hi Andrew, we do not recommend taking Overland Hand Trucks up or down stairs with a load on them. Without a load it is possible to drive the cart up or down a few stairs in a pinch. We recommend lifting up the cart and carrying it up or down stairs or using a ramp.

Can I order a fork for block and roll blocks? Like the one for the “transformer” cart on block and roll? Is it possible to get all terrain tires solid fill?

Jeremy Rupp
1 year 3 months ago

Hi Jonathan, great question! Unfortunately the physics of hauling a block and roll block would not work on our transformer. We would recommend buying a manual block and roll cart and Transformer although we understand that requires two carts instead of one. We do sell the Transformer with flat free dual ag tires. The part number is: 70223 and it is $100 more than our standard Transformer. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with! 877-447-2648

Can I upgrade from a 24V battery to a 36V if I order one

Jeremy Rupp
1 year 2 months ago

Hi Shannon! Our electric drive system is exclusively designed with 24V components. It is not possible to upgrade the cart to a 36V battery pack. We do offer two different 24V battery pack sizes for the Transformer, 12Amp-Hr & 21Amp-Hr. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with! 877-447-2648

Looking at this electric hand truck most of our inflatables are 365-500lb just wondering how this one will handle on inclines as we have lots of hilly yards in Washington?

Jeremy Rupp
7 months 5 days ago

Hi Scott, much of the load capacity depends on the terrain (long grass, short grass, hard dirt), incline, load and incline length. Our Transformer comes with a built in overload fuse that will trigger if the motor is being over worked. That’s an indicator to reduce the load or take a less severe angle. Overall our Transformer should work for your application. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with! 877-447-2648
