Italian manufacturer Faresin has launched its new All Electric 626 telehandler at bauma.
The new machine is apparently ready to go into production following a ‘soft launch’ in October. The new machine is based on the company’s standard 626, with six metres lift height and 2,600kg maximum lift capacity. As such it shares most of its components and structure with the regular diesel model. Maximum forward reach is 3.1 metres with 900kg.
Power comes from a standard lithium 80 volt 300Ah battery, with a 400Ah available as an option. The standard battery is said to provide three hours continuous operation or six hours typical usage. Recharge time to 100 percent is two hours with a Fast charger or four hours with standard charger.
The optional 400Ah provides four hours continuous operation or eight hours of typical usage and takes five hours and 20 minutes with the standard charger or two hours and 35 minutes with the Fast charge.
The first units are due to come off line and ship within the next six to eight weeks.
