The Nipper Electric Work Buggy

The Nipper, Slim Electric All-terrain Vehicle

NEW! The 4x4 Electric All-terrain Vehicle (ATV), nicknamed The Nipper, is a nimble utility vehicle suited to tackle all-terrains for both on- and off-road use. Available for purchase and long-term hire.

Due to its slim width, The Nipper is perfect to access narrow gaps and gateways, as well as making it easy to transport to varying locations due to its smaller frame. It is the only work buggy across the fleet to include an electric rear tipper (the rest are manual).

Multi-use, Fun & Super Versatile

The Nipper is designed for versatility making it just as easy to ‘nip’ out locally by road, as it is to cross a muddy field. These nimble vehicles are available for hire or purchase.

The Nipper is perfect for local errands, municipal use for local councils, and for the farming/agricultural sector, large estate owners, conservationists, recreation, and even for the film-making industry.

Available in a choice of blue or green, The Nipper is a 2-seater with individual seats rather than bench style seating. For extra comfort the seating also includes light cushioning. The Nipper also includes an electric tipping bed, half doors to prevent mud entering the compartment, and glass windscreen with wiper as standard. As a road legal UTV, you'll have the choice of on- or off-road tyres. View even more accessories.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I drive this buggy on the road?

A. Yes, for an additional fee, they can be road registered prior to delivery. You will need to provide evidence of valid insurance.

Q. What type of terrain can The Nipper cope with?

A. Almost everywhere, thanks to the all-wheel drive, lockable differential, nitrogen filled shock absorbers, powerful steering and high torque drive. Expect what you get from a normal quad bike but with shelter in the snow and rain! 

Q. Does it have a winch? 

A. The Nipper doesn't have a winch as standard. 

Q. What happens about charging them?

A. All our vehicles can be charged from a standard 13amp electrical supply, and although each has its own characteristics, it typically takes 6-8 hours to charge fully. As with all battery charging, during the first hour or two the current draw is at its highest, reducing for the remainder of the charging period. Depending on the type and duration of the work being undertaken, our vehicles will all comfortably last for a full days work or longer. We recommend placing vehicles on charge overnight. We can advise on setting up 'charging stations' at large events to establish a charging regime on site. 

The Buggies all have an on-board charger, fed by a cable under the bonnet, or mounted on the side. This cable has a 16a 'male' plug on it and is also supplied with a 16-13amp adaptor. This machine has gel-filled lead acid batteries, arranged to give 48v. At peak these machines draw around 6 - 12 amps.

Q. What climb can the The Nipper cope with?

A. The full load climb is 30%

Q. Can I get a full day's work out of a full battery?

A. In our experience, yes easily. In fact, some of our customers estimate it is more like 3 full days. Of course this depends on the type of work it's doing and the terrain. We recommend that the battery is always charged overnight, regardless of how much work it has done during the day. 

Q. Does The Nipper have safety beepers fitted?

A. Yes, there's an alarm to tell you if the driver isn't wearing a seatbelt, and an audible warning when the buggy is reversing. There is an audible sound when the indicators/hazard lights are operating. We can also fit “white noise” beepers which warn pedestrians of their approach.
