Executive Hire Show: JCB 19C-1E debuts

JCB’s brand new electric mini-excavator has made its debut at this year’s Executive Hire Show, alongside the company's new CT260 tandem roller. The 19C-1E mini-excavator can put in a typical full day’s shift for a mini excavator on a single charge – which takes just two hours with the fast charge option. JCB says its 19C-IE is five times quieter than its diesel counterpart, and that it’s 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, and a sophisticated battery management system ensuring full-shift availability. A convenient on-board charger with capability for both 110V (12-hour recharge) and 230V (8-hour charge) comes as standard. The fast charge option, allowing a full charge in under two hours, is also available.

The 19C-1E will be joined 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.
