Textron Specialized Vehicles announced the launch of its Hauler 800 Elite electric utility vehicle, powered by Samsung SDI lithium technology. The vehicle offers zero-maintenance batteries with increased range and energy efficiency.
The Hauler 800 Elite series maximizes space and functionality, with an ergonomic dash offering storage for clipboards, radios, and other tools, and a flexible bed that can be customized to carry equipment and materials. The vehicle is backed by a five-year battery warranty and offers up to 900 lbs. of towing capacity.
Hauler 800 Elite vehicles are equipped with zero-maintenance lithium batteries that don’t require watering, terminal post checkups, or cleaning like traditional lead-acid batteries. Elite vehicles also charge in half the time and require less out-of-the-wall power than lead-acid batteries. Elite vehicles can also “opportunity-charge” between tasks, and with batteries half the size and a fraction of the weight of lead-acid batteries, the Hauler 800 Elite series reduces turf damage and soil compaction.
