I'm looking for an electric wheelbarrow on the EGO platform. I love my other EGO equipment (mower, trimmer, blower). But there is no good solution to the moving mulch/gravel/patio stones/etc issue. I get a load dropped off at my house in front, but then i have to 1. fill the wheelbarrow (this is the hardest part). 2. trudge the wheelbarrow over to where i need it (2nd hardest especially after doing it 50 times) and 3. dump the wheelbarrow. 

But I don't have a farm, so a tractor/front loader/etc is waay too much. Something for a normal homeowner with less than one acre.

It would be nice to have an electric cart/wheelbarrow to handle this scenario. Something like what i see from overland carts or the 40V greenworks one. That said, I still don't think anyone has solved #1 problem well. Ideally i should be able to easily just push mulch from the big pile in to the cart/wheelbarrow. Somehow this means allowing the cart to adjust itself so it can lie flat on the ground and open up to allow me to push the mulch/etc inside the cart. 

I hope you can take a look at this idea! thanks!

Yeah those prices are quite high. And I still think no one really has solved #1 for small scale mulch loading. Either way a solution to this especially on the ego platform would be way cool.

Paint it green and stick an Ego battery on it and I’d be all over that!!!
