Rushmere Country Park in Bedfordshire is run by environmental charity The Greensand Trust. The Trust uses two Polaris Ranger EVs to help with its work maintaining over 400 acres of woodland, heathland and meadows. One at Rushmere Country Park and another at Ampthill Great Park.
Dan Doyle, Head Ranger at Rushmere Country Park, said: “We were so impressed with their ability off road and they’re a good match with the charity’s green ethos of renewable energy and reducing emissions. They are great for a day’s work as the battery lasts well around the vast park, without needing to be recharged”
Used for day-to-day operations, as well as transporting materials for path/track repairs, the EV provides a powerful electric engine, 226kg box capacity and 26.6cm of ground clearance, as well as maintaining smooth and quiet operation around the site to avoid disturbing the wildlife and its visitors.
