JCB Electric Telehandler Available to Hire From January 2021
National Telehandlers are delighted to announce that we are now taking hire orders for the brand-new 525-60E JCB Electric Telehandler.
Bennie Equipment, our affiliated partner for Forklifts, are in the process of purchasing one of the first electric telehandlers which is being released by JCB. The new machine will be available to hire from as early as January 2021.
MD Lee Rigby says:
“This is fantastic news and will cement our relationship with Bennie Equipment into 2021. Our aim is to provide our customers with the best hire equipment for their construction or agricultural project anywhere in the UK. This news confirms that we continue to supply the most efficient and effective machinery in the industry.”
Earlier this month, JCB launched the totally new all electric six metre/2.5 tonne compact telehandler – the 525-60E.
Silent & Economical
The four wheel drive system uses new high efficiency axles, driven by a large inboard mounted electric motor connected to the driveline via a drop box. The hydraulics are powered by separate electric motor and a new low noise gear pump.
It uses a 96v lithium-ion battery pack with an onboard charger that can recharge the machine overnight from a standard 230 volt 16 amp outlet, while a JCB Fast Charge remote three phase charger – good for all JCB ETech electric powered machines – can recharge the pack to 80 percent in 60 minutes or fully recharge from empty to full in 2.5 hours.
It is also equipped with regenerative braking and hydraulics on boom lowering and retraction to top up the battery pack while working. The battery pack is perfect for 5,000 full charges, which the company estimates as 10 years of typical workload. They are also good for temperatures from minus 20°C to plus 60°C.
