JCB will show the fast charge version of its first ever fully electric mini excavator at the Executive Hire Show 2020.

JCB’s 19C-1E is said to be able to put in a typical full day’s shift for a mini excavator on a single charge. This is said to take 2h when set on the fast charge option, and is five times quieter than its diesel counterpart, making the model ideal for emissions and noise sensitive applications. Key features of the 19C-1E electric mini excavator include three or four lithium ion battery packs providing a 15-20kWh storage capacity, load sensing hydraulic system delivering powerful digging performance, a sophisticated battery management system ensuring full shift availability. A convenient on board charger with capability for both 110V (12h recharge) and 230V (8h charge) comes as standard. The fast charge option, allowing a full charge in under 2h, is also available.

The 19C-1E will be joined at the show by the larger JCB 86C-2 midi excavator which meets the forthcoming EU Stage V emissions regulations and benefits from a host of detail improvements, making the machine easier to maintain and to operate. Also to be shown on the JCB stands will be an extensive line up of equipment tailor made for the rental industry. This will include the latest products from the JCB compact excavator, ‘Loadall’ telescopic handler, site dumper, wheeled loader, attachments, light equipment, compaction and access ranges.
