I'm sorry I can't shed any light on subject wheelbarrow. It does sound
like it could be a useful tool for someone who has trouble moving around for
what ever reason.
Can I ask why you would need an electric wheelbarrow?

I think that Smith and Hawken had them in their catalog. A friend bought one to
use this spring while awaiting knee replacement surgery (she also has
rheumatoid arthritis) and she was very pleased with it.
Now I can guess that someone with mobility problems could empty it by
simply dumping it -- assuming that you want whatever you're hauling in a
heap right there. But how does one load it? Seems to me that even if it
works perfectly, the scope of it's usefulness isn't very wide.
Then again I've spent some good money on things that do only one thing.
I just can't see myself spending money on an electric wheelbarrow.
The product I have in mind would probably be better described as an
electrically driven wheelbarrow. The motor would assist in the moving of a
loaded wheelbarrow, as opposed to using the electrics to dump it. I would sure
appreciate one since nearly all my landscaped area is only accessed by wheeling
the goods all around the house ..uphill all the way.
