Utility vehicle

Waev Inc. introduces the Bigfoot S, an all-new, compact, and more agile electric-powered burden carrier from Taylor-Dunn.

Designed for customers who need big towing and payload in tighter facility spaces or desire to have better freight density, the Bigfoot S expands the dynamic line-up of Bigfoot burden carriers with a more cost-effective, all-electric offering available now.

Engineered with the DNA Bigfoot vehicles are known for, the Bigfoot S features the same all-steel construction resulting in superior durability, versatility and safety features in the lineup’s most compact footprint, measuring 12 inches shorter than the standard Bigfoot.

Waev Inc. introduces the Bigfoot S, an all-new, compact, and more agile electric-powered burden carrier from Taylor-Dunn.

With a payload of up to 2,000 pounds and a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, the Bigfoot S can haul 21 bags of 94-pound. cement and tow a full-size car – more than an average pickup truck at a fraction of the price and size, and with the ability to electrify without the wait. 

“Bigfoot has become the unsung hero in industrial and commercial operations across the world. With its uncompromised towing capabilities and customer versatility ,it’s easy to see why,” says Luke Mulvaney, senior vice president and chief revenue officer of Waev. “Not all customers need the extensive payload capacity of the Bigfoot or Bigfoot XL, and that’s where the Bigfoot S comes in. The small but mighty model increases operation inclusivity by offering our lighter application customers all they need, without paying for capacity they don’t.”

In comparison with the Bigfoot, the new compact model has a wheelbase that is 19 percent shorter (50 inches), an overall length that is 9 percent shorter (118.5 inches), and a turning radius that is 16 percent shorter (115-inch radius). That tight turning radius is also 9.5 percent shorter than the competition, allowing the small-scale Bigfoot S to further increase agility, providing safe and efficient turning capabilities in even tighter aisles and pathways. A maximum speed of 11 mph meets jobsite compliance, while helping to safeguard employees around busy operations.   

The Bigfoot S also provides the same superior comfort that customers have come to expect out of the Bigfoot lineup with ergonomic bucket seats, rack and pinion steering and a large operator compartment. A 6 horsepower motor provides customers the power necessary to haul lighter loads easily and efficiently without overpowering the vehicle. The 36-volt battery configuration and range of up to 50 miles assures operation productivity and efficiency is never sacrificed. Additionally, the Bigfoot S eliminates unnecessary battery wear and tear and extends vehicle longevity with a new battery disconnect feature that cuts off power after 10 minutes of inactivity.  


The Bigfoot difference

  • Bigfoot S: Compact footprint with sharper turning for tighter spaces and increased freight density
  • Bigfoot: The flagship Bigfoot burden carrier and most popular model designed for the widest range of applications and operating environments
  • Bigfoot XL: Maximum towing for larger operations and payloads


Bigfoot electric burden carriers are industry-leading mainstays with ranges up to 60 miles, load capacities ranging up to 3,000 lbs. and towing up to 10,000 lbs. The same operator controls and parts provide commonality across the entire Bigfoot lineup, allowing customers to stock up on standard parts to keep fleets running with ease, while also maintaining familiar ergonomics and durability. Bigfoot burden carriers are often used indoors and out. They are nimble enough for tight manufacturing facilities and convention centers, quiet and clean enough for resorts, corporate campuses and parks and powerful enough for airports and railyards. 

With job site-compliant speeds, ergonomically low step height and high visibility for operators and warehouse workers, Bigfoot burden carriers are engineered for enhanced safety across the board.

Bigfoot burden carriers are built to last with heavy-duty steel frames and engineered with high-tech innovations such as options for Li-ion power modules and fully integrated battery management systems. Bigfoot utility vehicles are highly customizable with full cabs, enclosures, integrated racks, carts and other accessories that add to their versatility with customizations for baggage handling, maintenance, ambulance, law enforcement and people movers.
