JCB is updating its hydraulically-driven scissor vary with six electrical drive platforms. Initially there might be three fashions, the S1932E, S2632E and S3246E, adopted later this 12 months by the S2646E, S4050E and the S4550E.
Platform heights vary from 5.71 metres to 13.8 metres and capacities from 230kg to 450kg.
With these new fashions, the hydraulic drive motors are changed by mor environment friendly electrical drive motors, giving as much as 53% extra run time on a single battery cost. The electrical motors additionally ship elevated torque to the wheels and as much as 25% gradeability, making it higher on slopes and ramps.
The S1932E mannequin replaces the earlier S1930E, including 50mm to its width, regardless of a 106kg drop in working weight. The S1932E affords a platform peak of 5.71 metres and a platform capability of 230kg. Shifting up the vary, the S2632E has a platform peak of seven.92 metres with a 250kg capability and the S3246E affords a 9.7-metre platform peak, however with the next 320kg weight restrict.
Later within the 12 months, the S2646E will present a 7.9-metre platform peak and a 450kg load capability, whereas the S4046E will ship an 11.9-metre platform peak and 320kg weight restrict. Lastly, the S4550E has a most platform peak of 13.8 metres and a 230kg capability.
JCB’s new A45E and A45EH articulated growth lifts supply full electrical and hybrid variants of the prevailing diesel-powered AJ48D mannequin. Most platform peak is 13.84 metres, with a horizontal attain of as much as 7.47 metres, offering an up and over clearance of seven.48 metres. Raise capability is 300kg.
The A45E is powered by eight 6V batteries, making a 48V, 400AH working system.
The A45EH makes use of a 14.8kW three-cylinder diesel engine and a 7.5kWa generator to energy the machine’s eight 6V batteries. The engine is mounted on a swing-out tray, for service entry.
Each of the growth lifts have four-wheel drive and two-wheel steering as normal. The wheels are pushed by 4 AC motors and these motors get better power by way of regenerative braking, to lengthen battery efficiency. As drive is offered to every particular person wheel, the machine is able to climbing as much as 40% gradients. An oscillating axle ensures that most traction is maintained on tough floor when the growth is stowed. Nonetheless, the axle is locked, to make sure machine stability, when the machine enters growth increase mode.
