Wattman trains are very environmentally friendly.

Our trains are built exclusively with environmentally friendly materials that are easy to recycle.

All Wattman trains are powered with a silent electric motor in combination with a battery pack that, in addition to a good autonomy, is also very economical with charging. A Wattman train only costs ± 9 KwH to recharge an empty battery pack with the built-in smart charger.

With proper maintenance, our batteries will last at least 2-3 years, after which they are easy to recycle. We have customers who even use the batteries for 5 years without any problems.

Due to the high build quality of a Wattman train, it will last 10 to 15 years!

Parts are also widely available for our older models.
