JCB’s fast charge mini makes electric start to 2020

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

The 19C-1E 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. Five times quieter than its diesel counterpart, the model is 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 (12 hour recharge) and 230V (8 hour charge) comes as standard. The fast charge option, allowing a full charge in under 2 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.

Also 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.
