Fast charge compact machine to make UK debut at Executive Hire Show 2020
JCB will be launching a fast charge version of their first ever electric mini-excavator at next month’s Executive Hire Show (5–6 February).
According to the equipment manufacturer, the new 19C-IE can put in a typical full day shift for a mini-excavator on a single charge, which takes just 2h with the fast charge option. Five times quieter than its diesel counterpart, the compact machine is suitable for emissions and noise-sensitive applications.
Key features of the 19C-1E electric mini-excavator include: three or four lithium-ion battery packs providing a 15-20kWh storage capacity; a load-sensing hydraulic system delivering powerful digging performance; and a sophisticated battery management system ensuring full-shift availability.
A convenient on-board charger with a capability for both 110V (12h recharge) and 230V (8h charge) comes as standard. The fast charge option, allowing a full charge in 2h, is also available.
The 19C-1E will be joined by the larger JCB 86C-2 midi-excavator which meets the forthcoming EU Stage V emission regulations, as well as host of improvements that help make the machine easier to maintain and to operate.
Also, on show across the JCB stands will be an extensive line-up of equipment tailor-made for the rental industry, ranging from Loadall telescopic handlers and site dumpers to machinery attachments and light equipment.
