The average capacity is at least 24 canned beverages and ice. Most models also feature a drink-access lid and holder that makes access to a cold drink simple and easy.
- Can I be charged with a DUI while operating a motorized cooler?
The simple answer is yes. Basically, any time you operate a vehicle of any kind on a public road you are required to follow the same laws that are in force for automobiles.

Absolutely. But because these vehicles can operate at speeds up to 13 miles an hour you must be very careful not to run into the furniture, pets or other people. Check with your wife for further instructions.
- Should I wear a safety helmet while operating a motorized cooler?
While most states don’t require safety helmets for use of these cruising coolers on private property it’s certainly not a bad idea to protect your noggin. Needless to say, children should not operate any vehicle that has wheels without wearing a helmet.
- What about a motorized bar stool?
That’s a different story. A motorized bar stool racer will get your around the bar faster but doesn’t come with any storage capacity so you’ll have to remain within shouting distance of the bartender if you want a refill.
- Which is better, a gas powered motorized cooler or an electric motorized cooler?
That’s up to you. Many people prefer the convenience and quiet operation of an electric model but a gas powered cooler will probably go faster.

Some coolers even come with a remote control and you have to admit that a remote control cooler is pretty cool.
- Can I build my own motorized cooler?
Sure you can. With a little mechanical ability and decent motorized cooler plans the average backyard mechanic can slap together a pretty nice version without too much trouble.

You may be able to find a motorized cooler kit but for most people, it’s preferable to let the complexities of wiring up an electric motor and circuitry to the pros.
- Can I go off-road on my motorized cooler?
Most models of motorized ice chest don’t have the clearance to handle trails without bottoming out on rocks and the tires aren’t aggressive enough to power through mud or snow.
