Overland 8 cubic foot Electric Powered Wheelbarrow

Need to move heavy loads? The C27-8A is the electric cart for you. This electric wheelbarrow has an 8 cubic foot hopper that is 2″ narrower than our 10 cubic foot hopper.  The heavy duty hopper makes this the perfect cart for moving feed for your animals or stone and mulch for your landscaping jobs. Haul up to 750 lbs of material.  All of our Powered Carts, Wheelbarrows and Wagons use a twist style throttle. They’re simple to operate and will cut down on your work time. We like to say, “Dump Your Old Wheelbarrow and Drive an Overland!”

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.

2 questions, 1) what are the available accessories, e.g., can you attached snow shovel and 2) how would you say this stacks up to a muck truck

Jeremy Rupp

Hi Tim, there a couple common accessories for the Overland Carts. They can be viewed here: . We are in development of a snow shovel attachment and will be testing it more this winter. While the Muck Truck is a fine powered cart, the Overland Cart offers numerous advantages. It is much simpler to operate, offers a 750 capacity and up to a 10 cubic foot hopper. There is no maintenance required and the rear swivel wheels make handling a breeze. The electric power drivetrain provides ample power and ease of use. Feel free to contact us for more info: 877-447-2648.

By 4wd do you mean that all four wheels are powered or do you mean just one axle is powered. I need a 4×4 as in all wheels are powered. Thank you

Jeremy Rupp

Hi Pete, on our 4WD carts there are two drive axles. One axle that powers the rear wheels and one axle that powers the front wheels. The transaxles have open differentials so it’s not a true 4WD like it would be on a 4WD Jeep with locked differentials. But there is power going to the front and rear axles. Here’s video of the 4WD in action: Feel free to contact us: 877-447-2648 if you have any additional questions.
