It's great to have a wheelbarrow that can handle loads up to 200 lbs., but moving that load can be a problem. Not any more, thanks to this Power Assist Wheelbarrow (PAW). It features a 24 Volt battery-operated drive system and independent two-wheel drive for easy turning and serious maneuverability. With simple pushbutton forward and reverse control, you'll be able to haul dirt, sod, sand, shrubs, rocks, and more. The variable forward speed gear with power burst for hills means you can easily move up your load even on a 15° incline. The durable 6.0 cubic foot poly tub, rugged steel frame, and 13in. tires will hold up to the toughest tasks. System runs on twin 12V battery unit; charger included. Assembled dimensions are 57in.L x 28in.W x 27in.H.

I've searched all over for powered wheelbarrows. There are some gas engine-powered models and kits, but a gas engine would be very noisy and require a lot of maintenance. The other electric cart and wheelbarrow options available in the US are costly.
This cart looks like it will do the trick.
As delivered it requires some assembly. It's not difficult. It requires some tools like a mallet and socket wrench, and it took about an hour to assemble the metal frame and motorized wheels.
Rather than attach the included 6 cu ft poly-bin directly to the supplied frame, I built a plywood deck. (You can see some photos in the product description.) The deck consists of a 21" x 21" square platform and a trapezoid-shaped prow that covers the nose, protects the motor and gearbox and facilitates loading and unloading at the front. The deck configuration works pretty well for a wider variety of hauling jobs. I can put garbage cans on the deck. I am still doing some tweaks to this configuration. But the PAW as delivered is fairly flexible for adaptation. One needs to work around the motor and gear case which protrude up a bit at the front of the deck. I've built a way to adapt the poly-bin to attach to the plywood deck by mounting the poly-bin to a couple 2x4s and I'm using some hardware to securely attach the 2x4s to the deck. That way the poly-bin can be used and removed as necessary. Truck bed tie-downs (from Harbor Freight) are used to attach the poly-bin and serve double duty to secure materials being carried on the deck. U-bolts were added to provide tie-downs on the handlebars. I've also added a board to protect the electronics box from accidental damage.
The PAW's battery compartment and installation is pretty well designed. It uses a spring to securely hold the battery container in place and to facilitate easy removal. This would make it easy to swap power packs. (The vendor doesn't advertise additional power packs for sale, but they probably will sell replacements in the future.) You can also easily remove the battery case for recharging in the shop. The power plug on the battery case does dual duty for charging and powering the cart. You have to swap plugs to switch between charging and running the cart. The plug is a standard PC-style power cable. It's not the easiest plug to insert and remove. And the use of a standard cord is a little odd because if one were to naively plug in a standard PC extension cable and connect it to 110V AC you would have a lot of trouble on your hands. So don't do that. I don't have any data on battery life yet, but it has had no problem running over the course of several hour tasks. (I will try to update this as I get more information.) Inside the battery case are standard sealed AGM gel cells and they could probably be replaced very cheaply if they wear out.
Operating the cart is easy, but the use of a single button to switch between forward and reverse is awkward - there's no indicator whether you are in forward or reverse until you are moving. So there's too often some trial and error needed to get going, and reverse has only one speed so you get a small jolt when it engages. You really should be focusing on your hauling load when starting up not the eccentricities of the electronics. (Imagine if you didn't know for sure if your car was in forward or reverse when pulling out of a parking space.) I've found the power and traction to be adequate for everything I've tried. I have hills that are 10%-15% grades. Paved gravel and turf were no problem. I have not tried much hauling over rougher terrain. The tires are not ag-style so you might experience some slipping in wet conditions.
My wife moved 6 yards of mulch all over the property with a small wagon - lots of trips.
This year I bought the Power Assist Wheelbarrow and moved 3 yards of topsoil to the same spot as last year - no effort, just steer!
My wife moved 5 yards of mulch - same areas as last year. She loves it!
This was a great purchase as I'm 79 and she's 75 and we are going to need extra help when we get old.
Great directions - no fuzzy diagrams, just close-up, focused photos and exact directions. It went together with no problems in about 30 minutes.
It's been charged once since we got it and is still showing more than 1/2 charge.
