Our first EV commissioned in 2018 and continuing to cover the vast majority of our mileage. This waka has our largest solar system, meaning almost all it’s equipment is powered off grid.
Avoiding Auckland’s traffic jams since 2017. Since 2019 it has had the ability to tow a trailer that can mow several local lawns.
First commissioned in 2018, this is our only petrol engine. Useful for reaching jobs that would otherwise require our EV to stop for a fast charge. Also the first of our vehicles to have a solar system installed.
