E-bike for moving equipment

May 23, 2023 | 07:56 1 I am tired of walking anything under a mile or juggling rides for the longer trips. Thinking of an Ebike I can toss on the implement or hang on the tractor. Anybody do this? Reply With Quote

Gets quite time consuming moving equipment.
A few years ago I loaded my bike on the sprayer so I could get back for the water trunk. Left it by the drive way into the field and went spraying. When I got back a couple hours later the bike was gone.
Since then my wife has retired from her town job and is quite helpful.

    On the last point, joking aside, in our local town, some people have had bad crashes. Usually just a bike hemet is worn and not enough, not like a motorcycle helmet. Reply With Quote

    May 27, 2023 | 17:33 7 I use pedal assist e-bike for this exact purpose, this is my 3rd year using is. It’s a full suspension mountain bike, works really well. Pretty fast, cruise at 28-30 kph. At 30 kph the electric assist cuts out……some sort of regulation? Reply With Quote
