|A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT MOTREC|
We take seriously our responsibility to publish information that is as accurate and timely as possible.
On August 17, 2017, Motrec issued a press release containing the following statements:
Vehicle comparisons are standard business practice in our industry
That’s because at first glance, certain features may appear to be equal. When you take a closer look at the complete list of technical specifications side by side, however, the differences become much clearer. We’re talking about battery life & charging times, ergonomics & safety features, braking & towing capabilities, motor life & maintenance… And much, much more.
It’s also an unstated rule among industrial electric vehicle manufacturers to present these comparisons as accurately and honestly as possible. Doing otherwise only wastes people’s time – which is no way to build a reputation in our industry.
Pack Mule’s questionable practices
Unfortunately, not all of our competitors embrace this philosophy and sometimes resort to using outdated or inaccurate specifications to put their own vehicles in a more positive light. For some time now, Pack Mule has been posting misleading comparisons on its website. Regrettably, in the case of the Motrec MS-260, it has been passing off outdated information as our current specifications.
We have informed Pack Mule of this inaccuracy but would like to set the record straight here as well. Below is the correct comparison between the Motrec MS-260(48v) and the Pack Mule SC-775 NXG (48v).
The charge of intentionally posting misleading comparisons is very serious and disturbing to us.
Contrary to this charge, Pack Mule is not aware of ever having been informed by Motrec of the changes to the specifications for their stock chaser. As of mid-July, our comparisons were accurate based on the specifications then on Motrec’s website. We did not learn of any changes to their specifications until we were advised of Motrec’s press release by a third party on August 22, 2017. On August 25, we modified our comparisons.
By email to the CEO of Motrec on August 28, we asked Motrec to advise us how and when they told us of these changes to their specifications. As of September 24, we have not yet received a response.
