JCB has launched its first-ever electric site dumper and telehandler expanding its offer from the one-tonne excavator launched three years ago and its small tracked dumpster in the E-Tech range.

Both machines are being sold as clean air and low noise alternatives and JCB has extended operating times launching a new universal standlone charger unit for sites and hire depots.

The unit is capable of recharging the 19C-1E electric mini excavator from zero charge to full in just 2.5 hours and can be used to top-up machines during lunch breaks or when they are not in use.

With no diesel engine to service, maintenance requirements are also greatly reduced, boosting uptime and availability.

JCB’s full-electric version of the popular Loadall is designed to deliver the same performance as the conventional diesel-powered machine.

The six metre/2.5 tonne compact telehandler machine uses two proven electric motors, one for the driveline and the second to power the hydraulic system.

The telehandler is capable of recharging the battery in 8 hours using a standard 240V, 16A electrical supply or topped up during breaks using the fast charger in as little as 35 minutes.

JCB Chief Innovation Officer Tim Burnhope: “JCB has taken a pioneering lead in the move to electric propulsion in construction, agricultural and industrial machinery, having successfully introduced the 19C-1E mini excavator”

“As world market leader for telescopic handlers, the launch of the JCB 525-60E Loadall takes equipment electrification further, offering a zero emissions load handling solution with no compromise in performance or productivity. We are very excited about the prospects for this machine.”
