  1. This was not meant to be driven offroad or on unpaved roads. More for going to the store down the street or going to the post office. You will break that thing the way you drive it on bumpy grasslands.

  2. Wow it's kinda cute once Joe Biden and the Democrats get gas and Diesel back up to 8 to 10 Dollars a gallon I would consider buying one!!!!

  3. Thank you for sharing the unboxing and review of this interesting utility vehicle. As a retired person I can think of a thousand things this vehicle could be used for. I was surprised at the "extra" expenses that you had to pay just to get a complete operational unit. That being said, I do like the idea of a small electric utility vehicle.?

  4. For 2k, that is not bad. I want one for my little ranch as a ranch truck. I can fix the minor problems it has and even upgrade it.

  5. In Massachusetts I could drive it on the road without a license because it would qualify as a LSV or low speed vehicle though I personally wouldn't drive it on the road either way until I'm sure that the body was strong enough to withstand a crash

  6. People in the comments that are applying uses to it by American entities are forgetting American entities have for more disposable cash and can easily buy something better without it hurting the bank. 1 grand here can be 10 grand in many parts of the world.

  7. For 7000 total it's not worth it. They DO NOT climb even small hills, plus for 7k you could get a nice old used truck that's street legal..

  8. It appears as if the Gear-Lever may have been installed backwards & might be easily flipped 180-degrees allowing the door to close in both gears.
    if not, you could remove, clamp in a vise, & re-adjust the offset-angle fairly easily as well.

  9. The frame of the protective shipping container could/would make a great carport frame to protect your mini-truck from the weather. Plus as the John Alexander's message said it is obviously stronger than the actual truck frame. This is just a thought. I'm a big believer in recycling, just as that thin plywood has many uses
