The 3 battery pack will last for 4 continuous hours, equivalent to a full day's work, subject to the type of job.
The charging time is only 2 hours with the optional 380-420V three phase external charger, 8 hours with a 220-240V on board charger and 12 hours with a 110V on board charger.
The batteries can be charged with a 110V yellow industrial socket, with the option of a 230V industrial 3 pin blue socket; specified upon time of order.
The batteries have a 3,000 charges warranty, equating to about 10 years of usage with 80% of battery life still left.
The machine shares the same structure, canopy, dig end, hydraulics and controls as the diesel and performs in exactly the same way. The only change is that the power pack changes from a diesel to electric.
If the machine is left on, but not working, the battery will run down at a very low rate to conserve power and last 120 hours before recharging.
The batteries cannot be easily stolen as they sit deep within the structure of the machine, it would take several hours to remove.
The machine is completely stand alone and free of tethers to improve safety on site and eliminate trip hazards.
There is no maintenance required on the battery packs at all and daily checks are reduced to a minimum; increasing time on site.
The warranty on the machine and batteries is 2 years.
