The Ultimate Off-Road Sled is Electric
There are many ways to get around when you leave the pavement behind, but the MTT-136 has to be one of the most unique and maybe even the most versatile. The electric sled is like none other, providing a level of simplicity that makes the machine a work of genius. This creative work comes by way of Yvon Martel, a resident of Quebec, Canada, and offers outdoor enthusiasts a plethora of versatility in snowy terrain. The configuration of the MTT-136 is pretty simple. An electric motor and attached battery pack are contained in a lightweight yet durable aluminum housing.
There is a track that is attached to the exterior and a handlebar attached to one end. The best way to describe it is a hybrid form between a tank and a dog sled, but without the dogs. Most people don’t think of electric vehicles off-roading with ease, but the MTT-136 is different. Its low profile allows the electric sled to slide under low-hanging objects like a fallen tree, pulling the operator under the obstacle. The MTT-136 can climb over snowbanks and power through a forest like a champ, proving that sustainable design doesn’t have to be boring or weak.
Its size is another plus. Weighing in at only 280 pounds, this electric sled can be easily loaded on to the back of an off-roader, in the bed of your pickup truck, keeping it handy for those situations where you need something small and maneuverable. The lightweight design also means it can travel on top of deep snow. With its hidden plug-in port, plugging in tools and other devices, or powering your air compressor, a work light, and tools used for fixing your SUV on the trail is a breeze.
The bad news is that as of right now, the MTT-136 electric sled isn’t available for purchase. Martel is looking for investors and distributors, but considering how incredible his machine is, that shouldn’t be much of a problem to garner the attention of some of the large agriculture suppliers out there. Come on Caterpillar, we know you could use a smaller, lightweight farm machinery on your line card and know many eager adventurers eager to sign up.
