Motorised Esky on Wheels – Here’s What I Really Think
The Motorised Esky has to be one of the best inventions to hit the Australian Market.
We love the concept and decide to do a bit of a research on the product.
Their HUGE popularity across Australia is quite impressive.
Hi There, I’m Andrew Firth an everyday guy that has a passion for 4wding and a guest blogger here at Aussie 4X4 Pro.
Today i’ve decided to lend a hand and give my feedback/experience of the humble invention the Motorised Esky/Cooler.
Around 6 Months ago I was invited round to a friends place for a couple of drinks and a get together.
He lives in southern Sydney around the Campbelltown area on a larger sized Block.
Upon arriving and doing the social thing saying introducing myself etc I noticed in all it’s glory the humble Motorised Esky.
I was literally like a kid in a candy shop, I just had to have a ride. I asked my buddy if I could do a few laps around his backyard and the answer was a big yes.
So I Emptied the beers & cruisers onto the grass, gave it a prime and gave it a pull start, jumped on gave a quick kick and flattened the throttle.
It has pretty good pickup considering i’m a bit of a heavier guy which I thought was rather impressive.
His back lawn was a bit of a mud pit from all the water being sprayed on the glass to promote better drifts. (New Drift King in the Making)
I threw the motor esky into a couple of corners at close to full speed and it surprisingly slid out quite nicely, It made me Feel like a kid again.
I chucked a link at the bottom of the page to the exact place my buddy bought his if you can’t be bothered reading the article.
Here’s My Thoughts and Opinions On the Motorised Esky…
Have you ever seen a motorised esky and thought yes please, well you’re not alone. This popular new trend is making waves across Australia.
The esky was first imported by a company that decided to take a gamble located in WA. The gamble certainly paid off as they could not sell them fast enough.
The product is seriously good clean fun, but be mindful that when driving these motor esky’s on public roads is not technically legal.
My Mate has had his esky for around 5 months now and it’s still going strong with no issues at all.

I have even seen them used for running between football ovals bringing drinks to umpires and players. Ideal.
Remember that you can still be caught drink driving while using the motorised esky.
Make sure you be careful when driving one of these as they can reach speeds of 35-40kmh.
Obviously you want to avoid being injured and no one likes losing their grog either.
These motorised esky’s are great fun, practical and quite the novelty.
If you have the room in your backyard, try setting up a small track and set some time trials and the winner gets the grog in the Esky.
Now don’t expect these things to be crazy fast, they only have a 49cc engine remember. In saying that they do eventually rack up a respectable top speed.
Pro Hack – Speed Them Up…
We probably shouldn’t be telling you this, but its actually quite easy to change the drive pulley to gear them up for a faster top speed.
If you’re somewhat handy its a pretty straight forward process, i’m not going to go into detail but it can easily be done.
But be careful, you can certainly do more damage at higher speeds.
Motorised Esky Spare Parts
If you accidentally stack your Ride on Esky, don’t panic. You will be quite surprised at the amount of spare parts readily available on Ebay that can be easily purchased.
Thanks to the basic straight forward design doing repairs are very easy to undertake yourself if your somewhat handy.
If you’re not that handy a mower repair shop would be able to assist with any repairs you can’t do yourself.
Motorised Esky Maintenance
This small 4 stroke engine is pretty bullet proof, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore some basic maintenance.
After going through a few tanks of petrol make it a habit to check oil levels.
Remember to check your spark plugs after months of constant use and replace if required.
Changing the spark plugs is dead set easy and similar to changing spark plugs on a whipper snipper.
Keep an eye on tyre wear and bearings and replace them as required to keep your powered esky humming nicely.
Run it on Premium Only.
As You Can See, They are Great Fun!! ANDD I Was Quite Surprised at The Price!
Use the Button we provided to Check The Price yourself and get racing.
Overall, I’m really impressed with the Motorised Cooler/Esky.
It’s well built, can handle a heavier person like myself and has a pretty good get up and go.
Yes you can even gear it up to go quicker, well the one listed above you can anyway.
I suggest you buy one before the authorities ban them like they do everything else fun nowadays.
Don’t forget to check and see if it’s still available here <<.
Well, thanks for reading my review and feedback of my experience using with the pretty cool motorised esky.
