Production ready electric telehandler

15. April 2019 | Comments (5)

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.

The electric 626 uses all of the same non power related components and structure as the standard diesel 626 model

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 626 takes two hours to fully recharge with the Fast charger and four hours with the 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.

We prefer diesel powered rigs in outdoor environment.

I made no assumptions, electric motors ARE twice as efficient as IC motors. That is a fact, like it or not.

Agreed, coal is not more efficient, but no one is suggesting that is the future either. We must go to alternatives.
And for info, nuclear is about 90% efficiency. So not just a little more. Wind, up to 40%, and solar up to 20%, are much lower, but easy to decentralize and don't pollute when in service so are viable options.

And I am very aware of energy density calculations. Worth noting that while diesel or petrol are higher (by mass and weight) they are total loss, once burnt they are gone, where as even old technology rechargeable batteries become superior as they are recharged and reused with little loss in performance.

The loss of energy in electrical grid transmission is low, and is why we arrived to dispose power generation already. No one is reinventing the wheel there.

And yes, we will need to increase the electricity grid, but no one is questioning that. Same as when people started making cars, questions were asked about how you'll be able to refuel them. There wasn't a petrol station anywhere. Now we have service stations everywhere, serviced by a huge network of transportation, and no one even thinks about it. It's the same thing is it not ?

And as for the 8h/12h14h working day, first it is wrong to suggest there is no one on an 8h day. Second, I suspect that you have no idea how much plant manufacturers have studied the subject. The length of the day is not what matters, it is the time that the machine is actually moving; and depending on the machine, that can be very little.

And I can even argue the whole "lithium mining" point, and recycling of batteries. Lots of interesting developments there too.

The change is coming. The advancements in this field are huge, and continue, because manufacturers recognize the need. I understand that people don't like to change habits, but this isn't a whimsical trend, the change is coming, because it needs to happen. I personally started out as a diesel mechanic myself many years back, and still love my IC motors.. but I know their days are numbered. And the new technology being developed it pretty damn good.

@Eric L.


You just assumed that electric motor is twice as efficient as combustion engine.

But you forgot that on the other side of the plug is coal/renewable/nuclear plant which efficiency is not much higher than combustion engine.

Most modern coal plants are about 40% efficient.
Nuclear are mayby slighty better.
Renewable sources are not getting even close to that.

Then you loose some power in the grid (resistance of power lines) and when storing energy in battery.

Then there is "energy dentisity" factor which tells you how much energy you can store in 1kg/1L (of fuel/battery)

Not mentioning that you gonna need tripple or quadruple thickness of all power lines, to power all that EV.

And than i would love to see Construction site which can afford to put on hold dozen workmen m, because telehandler is on charge for next 3h, so can work another 3h when rully charged.

Just to let you know - there is no 8h workdays in construction industry. 12-14h a day is standard.

You sound like someone complaining how the introduction of the "horseless carriage" will be a passing fad
Alternative power sources are the future. Time to accept it.

And yes, people have done the math. Electric motors are over 90% efficiency, Internal combustion motors around 30-45%. so even if coming from the power grid, it is better. A lot better.

Just wondering when all that new eco-electric bullshit gonna end.
After first blackout?

Anyone did any maths how many more hinkley point C's we gonna need to power all that EV and equipment? I'm not even mentioning grid capicity, becasue cables gona be melting...
