Man Saves Money On Fuel By Using A Shopping Cart Car

5 years ago

Although you may have thought of some great idea for a new invention and you think it is the greatest thing you have ever thought of before, maybe that idea should stay just that, an idea. There are some really weird and crazy inventions already on the market that people have thought of and have actually made into something. The line between crazy and ingenious is often a very thin one, and sometimes ideas that sound great in your head should really only stay there. On the other hand, there are these everyday problems we all face, yet no one comes up with a viable solution that could solve them.

So maybe, just maybe, one of the crazy inventions out there could actually prove to be useful with time, even if in the beginning they sound plain ridiculous. Some people look at a shopping cart and see just a plain old shopping cart. But creative types might see something that goes beyond the typical conventions of a basket on wheels. Through their innovation, they can turn this ordinary object into anything from a throne to a parade float to a carnival ride. Some of their ideas are funny, some are crafty, but all are genius. This video, which has occurred on July 12, 2018 in Jefferson City, Tennessee, the USA is an example of such an invention. It was filmed at the local gas station. To the person who filmed it, as he said, it was interesting to use a shopping cart with a motor attached. The man driving the cart saved a lot of money on gas. The visitor to the Tennessee gas station has indeed captured the unusual video of a vehicle gassing up - a motorized shopping cart. It shows a man sitting in a modified shopping cart next to a pump. The cart moves on its own with a gas engine and is controlled with a steering wheel like the one of bikes.

You can't just snag a shopping cart from the local grocery store and rip it down a track. It requires some mods to get up to speed. The ingenious invention of the man in the video features an actual shopping trolley that has go-kart wheels and is equipped with a motor. We think all shopping carts should be modified with go-kart wheels to remedy the epidemic of wonky wheels. It would make picking up milk and flour an epic adventure every time. This tinkerer simply attached an engine to a shopping cart and he drove himself home. Why? Because that's just what some people do for fun in the USA.

Did you know that an Israeli electrical engineer, Avraham Hagay, has actually invented a motorized shopping trolley designed to make it easier to push a full load of groceries around the store and back to your car. The system, which carries loads of up to 265 lbs (120 kg ), can be retrofitted onto existing carts or integrated into new builds. Hagay's currently in talks with local companies and he hopes to soon find a business partner to help manufacture, market, and sell the technology worldwide.
