The concept of the motorised wheelbarrow originated when Terry Rowlands (owner & designer) designed a hydraulic tipping system for the first mini dumper introduced into the UK by Honda. The Honda HP400 powered carrier was sold through the existing dealer network and the concept of mini dumpers was then recognised in the industry for hire along-side mini diggers.
The family have always been active as designers and manufacturers and started a company in 1985 with partners Roger and Christine Dee returned to the UK after spending three years designing, manufacturing and marketing products in the USA for the construction industry.
We soon realised there was a need for a lighter, smoother, faster and cost-effective mini-dumper that was available in the market place, hence the first motorised wheelbarrow (Bizzy) was developed by Terry in 1986. The first machine had only two front-drive wheels and had to be supported by the operator. Although it worked quite well it was certainly not as user-friendly as the current mini-dumper, it wasn't too long before the first pedestrian motorised wheelbarrow (mini-dumper) was designed.
