Guinness World Record Q Electric Milk Float For Sale

For sale is a Q Electric milk float ‘Bluebell’, holder of the Guinness World Record for the longest journey ever made by an electric milk float (officially measured at 1,031 miles!).

The fully functioning electric milk float has been converted to an extremely high standard, with the addition of an enclosed rear, including fitted windows and catering hatch, making it ideally suited as either a leisure vehicle or for a range of business uses, such as catering or as a mobile workshop space. Designed by the Bluebird team, and with an overall length of just under 5 metres, Bluebell is longer and faster than most milk floats, travelling at an average speed of around 20mph, and capable of travelling up to 50 miles on a single charge. A new set of Hawsker batteries were fitted in 2017 at a cost of £5,000.

2 x Zivan hi-frequency chargers have been fitted in the main cab, which allow the batteries to charge from a normal wall socket or camp-site hook-up (unlike most milk float batteries which rely on heavy and inefficient chargers that require a 32-amp charging point). In addition to this the motor has been re-built, and a new controller and foot-pedal fitted, which means the main working parts are now all as new.

As well as being environmentally friendly, Bluebell is economical to run, with no road tax to pay, no MOT required, and can be driven with a standard driving licence. Also fitted are 2 x 175 Watt solar panels, on a custom-built frame that allows them to rest above the roof, giving the panels ventilation and preventing cracking of the roof. The solar panels are wired into 2 x 110 Ah quality leisure batteries via an MPPT controller, supplying an 800 Watt inverter for 240V power, and includes a hard-wired cable that connects to a 24V battery charger for topping up.

Bluebell is certainly an eye catcher, with a beautiful stylish design that turns heads wherever she goes. If you want a great advert for your business, Bluebell is definitely a winner – after all, she’s a record breaker!
