Wacker Neuson has launched the production version of its new sub compact telehandler - the TH412e.
The new machine which made its public debut as a prototype at Bauma last October, is structurally similar to the standard diesel powered TH412, offering a maximum lift height of 4.3 metres, with maximum capacity of 1,250kg which it can handle at full height, and a maximum forward reach of 2.25 metres with a 530kg load.
Overall width is 1.564 metres, with an overall length of 3.94 metres, or 2.995 metres without fork or bucket attachments. Overall height is just under two metres and the overall weight varies from 2,750kg to 3,100kg depending on battery pack and options.
A 96V/18kWh lithium ion battery is standard and provides an uninterrupted operating time of more than three hours, while a 28kWh option offers more than five hours continuous operation.
A new battery management system constantly monitors the battery pack in order to increase its efficiency and safety and prevent deep discharge. When it comes to recharging a 3kW on-board battery charger is standard, with the option of a duplicate, the two combine to create 6kW for faster charging times. The charging cable is fitted with a Type 2 automotive plug and control box, although alternatives are also available..
Maximum travel speed is 30kph, while a 100 percent differential lock is standard. An optional high-flow high-power hydraulics pack is available for demanding attachments.
The unit is also equipped with Wacker Neuson’s VLS (Vertical Lift System) which semi automates the retraction and extension of the boom when lifting to provide vertical lifts without the operator needing to co-ordinate the lift and telescope/retract functions. The hydraulic quick-change system for attachments is also included.
The cab is similar to other models with a deep side window on the right and high seat along with a sloping machinery cover for improved visibility.
