JCB Goes Electric

A key attraction at the Executive Hire Show (see next issue for a full preview) will be JCB’s new 19C-1E battery-powered mini-excavator. It features three lithium-ion battery packs providing a 312Ah (15kWh) storage capacity, an on-board charger with 230V/110V input that allows a five- to eight-hour recharging and a sophisticated battery management system to ensure availability across a full shift.
