It is powered by a 36V electric motor and offers the versatility needed to tackle jobs on most sites. It has a steel chassis and steel cargo bed with heavy-duty bed liner, so it’s useful for carrying wet materials and dirty tools. The vehicle has a top speed of 22km/h and it is nimble enough to climb kerbs. In our test, it proves to be nippy on hard surfaces and handles well across turf and muddy areas. There’s no marking to turf and the new wider front axle on this model does improve stability.
The MPT1000 is the latest addition to E-Z-GO’s portfolio. It was developed for applications that demand noiseless operation and a capability to carry over 450kg. With a 48V electric motor, the vehicle is quiet and handles well on Tarmac and grass. The wider front axle provides that “feel-safe factor” when cornering. Turning clearance is 6.7m.
The good thing about these MPTs is that they are so easy to drive. Electric versions simply have stop/go pedals and forward/reverse gears. There’s also a parking brake. But what we especially like about the MPT1000 is E-Z-GO’s Precision Drive System with regenerative braking.
“It’s very easy to manoeuvre,” says our tester. All controls are easy to use.
