The 19C-1E fully charged electric mini digger can last a typical shift all day. The excavator can be charged in two hours using a three-phase charger for 380-420 V or in eight hours when connected to a 220-240 V.
A 12-hour charge is also possible with a 110 V on-board charger.
The manufacturer also noted that a system with three batteries is able to maintain 85% of its capacity even after 2000 cycles of full charge and discharge, which, according to JCB, are about ten years of operation.
JCB announced the introduction of major changes in the configuration of its three largest models of crawler excavators - JS300, JS330 and JS370.
Now they are planning to equip the Isuzu engines with 6-cylinder Rolls-Royce MTU 6R 1000 engines from 180 to 210 kW (241 hp - 348 hp).
The first excavator JCB model JS370 will be presented at the exhibition ConExpo-2017 next month.
This step marks an increasingly closer cooperation between the two companies - JCB and Rolls-Royce.
