Bad Boy Buggies unveils the Bone Collector Limited Edition!

July 14, 2011 Comments off

The Bone Collector XTO is a limited edition vehicle, with a production run of only 500 units. That means a lot of unlucky, slow-moving souls are gonna be left in the dust. So cowboy up and get after it.

DECKED OUT: This XTO comes with a dash-mounted double gun/bow rack, seats embroidered with the Bone Collector logo and a limited edition plate stamped with the individual production number. Plus, the new roof with a fully integrated cargo rack lowers the vehicle’s profile to make loading and unloading easier. And a comfort-grip steering wheel absorbs the bumps of the trail for better control.

LIT UP: Green LED spotlights mounted on top capture everything in front of you, and the Bone Collector logo shines brightly on the front brush guard in the signature Bone Collector lime green.

DOWNRIGHT POWERFUL: In addition to the scary-good payload and horsepower, we’ve also added an extra grand to the winch, giving it 3,500 lbs of pulling power-all at your fingertips thanks to a handy remote control.

Bad Boy Buggies Introduces the Work Series

April 13, 2011 Comments off

Bad Boy Buggies presents its new Work Series of bedded utility vehicles, ideal for handling land- and game-management tasks on large properties.

Landowners, conservationists and game managers can choose from three different Work Series vehicles in a variety of configurations to meet the specific needs of their operation. Depending on the model, the Work Series offers vehicles with electric, gas or diesel powertrains, and two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive capabilities, at varying maximum payload capacities.

“With the introduction of the Work Series, Bad Boy Buggies provides hunters and outdoorsmen with a complete portfolio of vehicle solutions for both in-season and off-season use,” said Mike Parkhurst, vice president of sales for Bad Boy Buggies. “Just as our traditional 4×4 electric vehicle is purpose-built for stalking trophy game, the Work Series is perfect for managing property in the off-season to ensure conditions are ideal when game are in season.”

The Work Series includes the following three models:
 
• The Bad Boy Buggies XD is the largest vehicle in the line, with a total load capacity of 1,600 pounds and a 22 hp, 1,007cc three-cylinder diesel engine. The XD features user-selectable four-wheel-drive, four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, and a manually selectable locking rear differential that can be engaged in two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive operation, for maximum control and traction in loose terrain.

The vehicle’s 14.4-cubic-foot cargo bed can hold up to 1,100 pounds, and the vehicle can tow up to 1,300 pounds from its rear hitch receiver. A rollover protection system (ROPS) protects driver and passengers, and standard features such as a 12-volt accessory outlet and glove box make the ride more comfortable and productive.

The 1600XD also can be outfitted with numerous aftermarket options and accessories, including a front hitch receiver, vinyl enclosure, and a hydraulic power source to drive augers, plows, log-splitters, post drivers and other implements needed for chores.

• The Bad Boy Buggies HD is a versatile two-wheel-drive hauler, available with a choice of a 13 hp, 401cc, low-emissions Kawasaki gas-powered engine or a silent, zero-emissions 48-volt electric drive train. A standard 9.6-cubic-foot cargo bed and rear hitch receiver enable the HD to handle hauling and towing tasks with ease, and generous ground clearance makes the HD surefooted on difficult terrain. To meet the specific needs of any operation, the HD can be outfitted with options such as a 14.9-cubic-foot aluminum cargo bed, an electric power cargo-bed dump, and a front hitch receiver.

• The Bad Boy Buggies LD is a dependable, two-wheel-drive runabout vehicle for smaller tasks and chores on any property. The LD is available with either a 13 hp, 401cc, low-emissions Kawasaki gas-powered engine or a zero-emission, highly efficient 48-volt electric drive train. A standard 5.9-cubic-foot cargo bed, bench seating for two, and total capacity of 800 pounds make the LD an ideal choice for handling day-to-day tasks and transportation needs.

Top 25 FAQ’s about Bad Boy Buggies

December 3, 2010 Comments off

 

1. How far can I drive on a charge?

Test runs in ideal conditions have produced run times of up to 30 miles on a full charge; however, in typical hunting conditions which consist of a mixed terrain, realistic run times of 15 to 25 miles per charge can be expected. Terrain, weather conditions and payload directly affect the run time of all electric vehicles.

2. Where do I go for service work?

Take you buggy to any authorized Bad Boy Dealer for service work. We have a dealer locator on our website to assist you in finding a dealer near you.

3. How long does it take to charge the batteries?

It takes 8 to 10 hours to complete a full charge on the batteries.

4. Can I charge the buggy with a generator?

Yes, the Bad Boy Buggy can be charged with a generator. The generator must be a minimum 2500 watt output, however, a 3500 watt output or larger is recommended.

5. How do I change the fluid in the differentials?

To change the fluid in the differential you have to remove the pan from the bottom of the differential. After the fluid has drained, clean the old silicone from the pan edge and bottom of the differential. Apply a new bead of silicone, and reinstall the pan. Remove the fill plug from the bottom of the pan, and using an injector style pump, fill the pan with 12 to 14 ounces of SAE85-140 wt. gear oil, and replace fill plug.

6. How much water should be in the batteries?

The fluid level should barely cover the lead plates in the batteries. Fluid should ALWAYS be added before charging batteries, USING ONLY DISTILLED WATER. If the batteries are overfilled they can boil over when charging, or if the water level is too low, exposed plates can be damaged.

7. What size tires and wheels are on the buggy?

Standard tire size for Classic, Stretch and LT Models – 24 x 11 x 10 Directional Tread Standard tire size for XT Model – 25 x 10 x 12 Directional Tread

8. How do I add 12 volt accessories to the buggy?

Any accessories that require power must be run directly from the batteries, not spliced into other wires. DO NOT USE THE CHASSIS FOR A GROUND, as this will damage the electrical system of the buggy. All grounds must terminate at a battery.

9. Where do I order parts and accessories for my Bad Boy?

Parts and accessories should be ordered through your authorized Bad Boy Buggies dealer.

10. How do I locate my closest dealer?

Go to http://www.badboybuggies.com click on the Locate a Dealer link. There you can click on your state to find a list of dealers for that state.

11. Where are the fuses located on the Bad Boy?

On the XT Model, the fuses are located in driver’s side storage compartment. On all other Model Bad Boy Buggies, the fuses are located beneath the cup holder on the dash panel. You must remove the cup holder to access the fuses. To do this, press inward on the warning label plate, while pulling outward on the cup holder. This will release the 3 locking tabs, allowing the cup holder to be removed from the dash panel. The fuse box will then be visible.

12. How fast will the buggy go?

The speed of the 2009 model Bad Boy Buggy ranges from 18-22 mph, depending on the payload and ground condition.

13. How much water can I safely go through?

It is recommended that the Bad Boy not be driven in water deeper than the center of the axles, or 12 inches.

14. I am getting shorter than normal run time, what could cause this?

Assuming that the charger is functioning properly, the only two things that cause a decrease in run time are defective/weak batteries, or a defective cable or cable connection. A defective cable or cable with a poor connection will be hot to the touch after running the buggy for a few miles. A digital volt meter is required to detect weak or defective batteries. Batteries voltages should only be checked by qualified personnel.

15. Is there a technical manual available?

Service manuals are available on CD for $55.

16. I hear a humming sound when the buggy is on, is this normal?

This question should only pertain to the older “Series” units, with directional contactors. A slight humming sound is normal while the buggy is in operation. The high amount of voltage required to operate the system produces a slight electrical hum and is a normal characteristic of electric vehicles.

17. What is the towing capacity of the Bad Boy?

Towing capacity is rated at 800 lbs, with a 150 lb maximum tongue weight.

18. What is the Bad Boy load capacity?

Load capacity for the Classic and XT Models is 1000 lbs. Load capacity for the LT is 800 lbs.

19. How much air pressure should I run in the tires?

The recommended air pressure is 12 psi in the front tires and 14 psi in the rear tires.

20. My buggy will not run, who should I contact?

Contact your authorized Bad Boy Dealer for all service questions.

21. Where is the controller located?

On the Classic and LT Model, the controllers are located beneath the black plastic cover behind the front seat. The cover is secured to the buggy with five Phillips head screws. After removing the five screws, pull the cover toward the front of the buggy, which will allow you to access the controller. On the XT Model, the controllers are located at the rear of the battery compartment, underneath the front seat.

22. Where is the directional contactor (double Contactor) located?

This question pertains only to the “Series” units. Flip up the front seat and look to the passenger side of the battery compartment. There will be one battery by itself. Between this battery and the rear fender well is the directional contactor. It is low set with several large gauge wires attached to it.

23. Where is the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) located on the buggy?

On the Classic Model, the V.I.N. # is located on the left side of the driver’s side storage compartment. The VIN will be printed across the bottom of a rectangular shaped silver foil tag, and is a 17-digit alpha-numeric number beginning with the letter/numbers “BBE514”. On the XT Model, the V.I.N. # is located on the “Warning Plate” mounted above the cup holder.

24. How much ground clearance does the buggy have?

Ground clearance is 16.5” at the frame.

25. What kind of oil goes in the differentials?

The differentials use standard SAE 85-140 wt. gear oil.
