Toro introduced the new electric Ultra Buggy at World of Concrete in January 2022. The machine is now available and the new electric Ultra Buggy builds on Toro's experience with material buggies by offering operators a battery-powered machine. 

Toro's proprietary HyperCell battery system powers the electric Ultra Buggy. The HyperCell battery system was specifically developed to meet user demand and is optimized to deliver up to eight hours of continuous runtime. When it needs charging, the onboard charger plugs into a standard 120v wall outlet and fully charges the machine in up to eight hours. 

"Designed with a deep understanding of customer needs and job site demands, the new buggy is exciting on multiple fronts. Exceptional runtime and a compact design make it nimble and convenient, electric power eliminates on-site engine exhaust emissions, and the thick, polyethylene tub easily handles all types of material," says Kaitlyn Ingli, associate marketing manager at Toro. "It's the perfect, versatile addition to indoor and outdoor construction and renovation projects and a great machine for rental operations and customers." 

Featuring a compact design, zero engine exhaust emissions, and a width of 31.5 inches, the new electric Ultra Buggy can fit through a three-foot door with a crash bar. It also features zero-turn-radius steering to navigate hard-to-access areas. The machine is equipped with a fold-up platform so operators can choose to stand on or walk behind the unit. The fold-up platform also allows the unit to fit inside elevators or on trailers for easier transport. 

The electric Ultra Buggy can haul up to 14 cubic feet or 2,500 lbs. of material. Additionally, the mounted directional and dump switches ensure continuous movement while operating the machine. 

The polyethylene tub has a thickness of three-eighths-inches allowing operators to haul more than just concrete. A steel tub is also available for applications that require it. The optional steel tub is designed with the same 14 cubic-foot or 2,500-lb capacity and can be used with any machine in the Toro Ultra Buggy lineup.
