You all need one of these!

Recommended Posts

They can handle a rider and combined luggage of around 19 stone. Any heavier just causes it to operate unusually strange. Luckily I'm an 11 stoner so can carry a few things :-) I have worked with them for a few years now. Thought I would share this pic as we now have one in my other job (my recommendation)

 

HI LEE do i have to seat down for the price i think so some how :lol:can you get a sumo one take more weight thanks jon :thumbup:

dredging up an old thread but could a segway be used to move brush and wood? Maybe incorporate an arb trolley with one somehow

 

The off road ones seem NEARLY capable of climbing stairs, and Im over carrying wood up and down stairs.

 

I have never ridden one so sending this out into the collective knowledge and sarcasm which is arbtalk!

I never knew! 

 

I was thinking instead of having the brush carried horizontally you could somehow secure it vertically so its more like an upright person riding, and could get around tight corners etc

It killed the guy who made millions from developing, patenting and flogging to the British and American armies what were essentially "jumbo" sandbags as used by the building supplies trade.

At no doubt stupid inflated/gold plated prices.

Who then bought the Segway company.

The name will come to me.
