The Nipper Electric Work Buggy

The Nipper, Slim All-terrain Work Buggy

NEW For 2021! The 4x4 Electric Work Buggy, 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 also 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 and municipal use for local councils as well as for the farming/agricultural sector, large estate owners, conservationists, recreation, and even for the film-making industry.

Choose from a range of 5 colours. The vehicle is a 2-seater; however, the seats are individual rather than the standard bench style and include light cushioning for extra comfort. The Nipper also includes glass windscreen with wiper as standard. As a road legal UTV, choose from 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 Work Buggy 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! The Beast also has power steering.

Q. Does it have a winch? 

A. All HiSun products come with a winch as standard.  We normally remove these for hire vehicles, but they can be re-fitted on request and for a charge. It has a pulling power of 1600 kilos (3527llbs) and is powered separately from the main batteries, so it does not affect the power of the vehicle.

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 Work Buggy 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 Work Buggy 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.

Q. Can I get an enclosed cab and doors?

A. Yes, for an additional cost - please enquire. 

Q. Can I get an enclosed cab and doors?
A. Yes, for an additional cost  these are available on Beast and Work Buggy.
