SAfETy INfORMATION  
Do not operate the power buggy at excessive speeds.  
Reckless operation may cause accidents and severe  
injury. Slow down when approaching people, wet areas,  
and going up and down grades. It is the responsibility of  
the operator to adjust speed, as necessary, depending  
on the conditions of the road or path.  
alWays block the power buggy with appropriate blocks  
when leaving the power buggy parked on a slope.  
To prevent unexpected loss of control, Do not start  
engine on a sloping surface.  
Ensure that the speed control lever works freely and  
returns to the closed position. Do not start engine  
unless speed control linkage is working properly.  
alloW extra time to stop when operating the power  
buggy ion wet surfaces or loosely graded materials.  
Make sure that the tires are inflated to the manufacturer’s  
recommended tire pressure.  
only remove the outer tires when it is necessary to  
reduce the width of the power buggy in order to access  
narrow work areas.If outer tires are removed, the power  
buggy must only be used on level, solid surfaces such  
as concrete, asphalt, or compacted stone to prevent the  
power buggy from tipping.The maximum load must also  
be reduced to 1000 lb.

These types of material may shift causing the power  
buggy to tip and throw the operator off the machine.The  
power buggy is intended for dumping free-flowing and  
loose materials such as dry soil, slag, and wet concrete.  
never attempt to work the control except from the  
operator’s position.  
Do not dump materials from bucket while the power  
buggy is moving.

etc.) should be cleaned after every use.Make sure there  
is no buildup of concrete, grease, oil or debris on the  
machine.  
alWays ensure power buggy is securely placed on  
appropriate blocks or jackstands when performing  
maintenance requires elevation of the buggy.  
alWays make sure the power buggy’s brakes are  
working properly. Check brake linkage and adjust as  
required. never operate the power buggy with a  
defective braking system.  
alWays store equipment properly when it is not being  
used.Equipment should be stored in a clean, dry location  
out of the reach of children and unauthorized personnel.

Fire or explosion could result from fuel vapors  
or if fuel is spilled on a hot engine.  
Do not remove the engine oil drain plug while the  
engine is hot. Hot oil will gush out of the oil tank and  
severely scald any persons in the general area of the  
power buggy.  
Do not leave the power buggy in the vicinity of ovens,  
furnaces or radiant heaters. Heat could raise the  
pressure of the fuel so that vented gas could ignite.  
Caution

Danger  
Do not drop the battery. There is a possibility that the  
battery will explode.  
Make certain the operator knows how to and is capable  
of turning the engine OFF in case of an emergency.  
Donotexpose the battery to open flames,  
sparks, cigarettes, etc.The battery contains  
combustible gases and liquids. If these  
gases and liquids come into contact with a  
flame or spark, an explosion could occur.  
NOTICE  
never run engine without an air filter or with a dirty air  
filter.Severe engine damage may occur.Service air filter  
frequently to prevent engine malfunction.  
never tamper with the factory settings  
of the engine or engine governor. Damage  
to the engine or equipment can result  
if operating in speed ranges above the  
maximum allowable.  
Warning  
alWays wear safety glasses when  
handling the battery to avoid eye irritation.  
The battery contains acids that can cause  
injury to the eyes and skin.  
Fuel saFety  
Danger  
Use well-insulated gloves when picking up  
the battery.  
Do notstart the engine near spilled fuel or combustible  
fluids. Fuel is extremely flammable and its vapors can  
cause an explosion if ignited.  
alWays keep the battery charged. If the battery is not  
charged, combustible gas will build up.  
Do not charge battery if frozen. Battery can explode.  
When frozen, warm the battery to at least 61°F (16°C).

gENERAL INfORMATION  
The MQ Whiteman All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Power Buggy,  
Model WBH16EAWD (electric start) is intended for the  
transportation of concrete, concrete spreading and spot  
pouring. In addition, the WBH16EAWD is designed for  
landscaping applications, material sub-base distribution,  
job site cleanup and material transport.  
This hydraulic circuit provides equal power distribution to  
the front drive motors, greatly improving performance in  
poor traction conditions such as sand, mud or loose gravel.  
This system should only be used as needed and for short  
periods of time to prevent damaging your power buggy.  
The operator controls the forward and reverse machine  
travel by manually shifting the control valve which directs  
the hydraulic fluid flow to the two drive wheel motors. The  
flow to the dump cylinder is also controlled by a manually  
operated control valve.  
The AWD Power Buggy is equipped with a 6-inch dump  
height which provides clearance and enables the operator  
to maneuver over any form height. In addition, it has a  
unique polyethylene tub design that reduces concrete  
splatter.  
This hydraulic system uses a parallel loop configuration,  
operating at a maximum of 1450 PSI. The system also  
features a neutral position which allows the AWD Power  
Buggy to be moved in the event of an emergency.  
A low center of gravity has been incorporated into the  
WBH16EAWD's design which provides added safety when  
maneuvering the buggy in tight areas.A 5.5-gallon fuel tank  
allows for extended uninterrupted use. Maximum speed of  
the AWD Power Buggy is rated at 7.25 MPH in standard  
mode and 6.2 MPH in AWD mode.  
The hydraulic oil is filtered by a screen type filter located in  
the hydraulic tank, then doubled filtered within the system  
by a 10 micron cartridge spin-on return filter.  
The maximum weight capacity of the AWD Power Buggy is  
2,500 lbs. (1,136 kg).The outer wheels can be removed to  
allow the buggy to pass through a 32 in. (81.28 cm.) door.  
Warning  
All operators must have training before operating the  
WBH16EAWD. For your safety, warnings are on the  
machine and in this manual. Failure to obey these  
warnings can cause severe injury or even death.  
Hand and foot controls are provided for ease of dumping  
and stopping of the WBH16EAWD. Multiple lift points have  
been provided to allow for easy access of a forklift when  
lifting is required.  
The WBH16EAWD is powered by a Briggs and Stratton  
Vanguard air cooled gasoline engine rated at 18 HP at  
3600 RPM.  
Caution  
Do not attempt to operate the power  
buggy until the Safety Information, General  
Information, and Inspection sections of this  
manual have been read and thoroughly  
understood.  
The engine drives a variable displacement hydrostatic  
transmission which is activated by a cable controlled  
hand lever. The hydraulic fluid flows to a divider valve  
which directs the fluid to the forward reverse and dumping  
systems.  
The drive system is controlled by the AWD/2WD toggle  
switch, located on the console. This switch allows the  
operator to quickly change from standard drive mode (2WD)  
to All-Wheel Drive mode (AWD).Toggling the switch to AWD  
mode supplies power to the 12 volt solenoids and traction  
assist switch.When operating in AWD mode, the top speed  
of the AWD Power Buggy is reduced to 6.3 MPH.  
A Traction Assist button located on the handle allows  
the operator to momentarily force hydraulic fluid to both  
drive motors for improved traction. Engaging the traction  
assist system while in AWD mode provides enhanced  
traction control by using a specialized hydraulic circuit.
