1.9 Tonne Electric Excavator
The first production electric excavator is here...now!
The new JCB 19E-1 is a proper, no compromise electric excavator. With identical performance to the diesel machine, the benefits of this machine are clear;
- No local emissions - work inside with no worries
- Massively less noise - work around the public with less disruption
- No dust - no exhausts and cooling fans to blow dust around
- Less vibration - the driver gets a much nicer drive
- No pollution worries - no refueling means no spill worries
The 4 pack battery gives you enough on board energy to get a normal full shift in. Ok, if you are running a rockbreaker all day, flat out, you will need to recharge at breaktimes, but normal day-to-day work? No sweat.
Charge times vary from 2 hours with the 3 phase "supercharger", through 8 hours on 240v or 12 hours on 110v - so overnight basically.
We can also rent you the amazing Solarpod to give you true, clean "middle of a field" energy! Check it out here; Solarpod
So, lots of people will moan about this; It'll go flat. It'll blow up and catch fire. It won't work in the mud... We have had these machines in the workshop and in bits - they are the real deal, built to work in the harshest applications and shrug it off.
If you have to work inside, around people going about their lives or even overnight - go electric! It's just better...
