MAPS exists to empower farmers to be more efficient in producing and transporting their goods. The MAPS AgRover is our solution to the power and transportation of small-holder farmers in developing countries.

The AgRover

The AgRover is a multipurpose utility vehicle for agriculture. It is a unique option for farmers because it

  • can traverse off-road
  • powers attachments (e.g. pumps, generators, and threshers)
  • can pull small field implements
  • reduces the time and energy spent on farm tasks
  • is locally manufactured

Multipurpose

Transportation

Hauling capacity of 1 ton (2200 lbs) on or off road with speeds up to 32 kph (20 mph).

Attachments

The AgRover can power belt-driven attachments like water pumps, threshing machines, and food processors.

Field Work

The AgRover can pull small field implements like two-row planters and small ploughs or cultivators.

Fuel Economy

Load (kg)

km/L mi/gal
 70 26 62
 500 23 53
 900 18 41

Suspension

Suspension on all three wheels provides driving comfort, load safety, and vehicle durability. Unique rear suspension design provides high roll stiffness.

Automotive Driving Controls

Driving is simple with controls just like a car. Automotive clutch, brake, accelerator, and shifting means that if you know how to drive an automobile, you know how to drive the AgRover

Vehicle Speed

Transmission provides five forward speeds and one reverse gear. Maximum speed in first gear is 6 km/h and the maximum speed in fifth gear is 32 km/h.

Payload

Whether it is farm produce, bags of grain, or barrels of water, the AgRover is built to carry all your loads. Rated at 1 ton (1000 kg), the AgRover easily handles your off-road transport needs.

Brakes

Unlike two wheel tractors with an attached trailer, the AgRover has hydraulic brakes on all wheels, an important safety feature for driving with a full load.

Power Take-Off

Easily attach water pumps, maize grinders, generators, threshers, and many other equipments.

Local Materials

All parts are locally manufactured or easily available for replacement locally. This means a quicker repair time to keep your operation up and running.

Vehicle Weight

Thanks to an efficient frame design, the AgRover is light relative to the payload it can carry. Compared to a Toyota Hilux, the AgRover weighs less than half but can still carry three quarters of the payload.
