The Capella Work Machine is powered by a 48v 5kW motor comes with a choice of two high powered lithium-ion batteries charged via an on-board Lester charger. With a 450A AC Curtis controller and direct drive, the Work Machine offers a range up to 60 miles of travel going at a maximum speed of 20mph for the ultimate productivity from an electric workhorse. Plus, it has a climbing ability of 20 percent meaning it’s just as good on the hills as it is on the flat.

This noiseless and emissions-free utility buggy can take two passengers at a time and has a hydraulic lift rear cargo utility box with an impressive 670kg (1477lbs) carry capacity.

It features carefully selected components for a smooth ride: there’s a double A-Arm independent suspension with adjustable shock absorbers, a double-ended self-compensating ‘rack and pinion’ steering and QDS drive system with temperature protection.

In addition to the key features above, the little things also matter and all the details that make for comfortable operation have been considered: there’s Bluetooth, a dashboard with digital display, holders for drinks, golf balls and tees and an LED lighting system.

The Capella Work Machine represents a range of 28 lithium and sealed battery-powered utility vehicles from STAR EV and available from Reesink e-Vehicles, which includes electric passenger buggies and small, medium and large capacity electric UTVs and people carriers for up to 23 people. All come with a rapid charge, good mileage per charge, and an extensive warranty – up to six years on batteries.

On stand ready to introduce this exciting buggy option will be Dave French, Reesink e-Vehicles’ new electric vehicle expert. He says: “Wherever you are and whatever sector you’re in, the ability to work more quietly, earlier and for longer will be an advantage. Specifically, urban sports stadiums and training grounds and golf courses and resorts with guest rooms or neighbouring residential areas will notice a big difference by switching to electric power.

“STAR EV is a brand that delivers strong technology, innovation, breadth of range, value proposition and, importantly, peak performance. Electric-powered technology is a fundamental part of the future; it’s growing rapidly, with customers keen to switch and the arrival of the STAR EV range brings more choice.

“The Capella Work Machine is a standout model for any maintenance team looking to get around the grounds easily and efficiently all day long all on a single charge and is well worth a trip to the Reesink e-Vehicles stand at SALTEX.”
