SMT GB to exhibit the new all-electric Volvo L25 Electric compact wheeled loader.
At this year's Let's Recycle event, SMT GB will be exhibiting the new all-electric Volvo L25 Electric compact wheeled loader, along with the Volvo EW200E Materials Handler. Both machines can be seen working in the outdoor working arena at stand LD9.
The Volvo L25 compact loader is one of two new electric machines developed and produced by Volvo Construction Equipment, with its stable mate being a 2.5 tonne compact excavator. Powered by a 48 Volt Lithium-ion battery pack with a 39kWh output, the L25 gives an indicative runtime of 8 hours. There are 4 charging options, ranging from a simple domestic supply to a high powered 32 AMP rapid charger, giving a full capacity in just 2 hours.
Weighing in at 5000kg, the L25 Electric will be demonstrated with a 0.9mᶟ general-purpose bucket, and will show off its high manoeuvrability in tight spaces in the demo area.
Following the highly successful introduction of the larger EW240E Materials Handler three years ago, Volvo Construction Equipment has introduced a twenty-two tonne version in the form of the EW200E. This, like its bigger brother, is a purpose-designed material hander that can be offered with the option of a gooseneck arm for 5-tine scrap grab, or a dedicated materials handling arm for use with rotating selector grabs.
Powered by a 6-cylinder Stage V Volvo engine, developing 171 nett hp, the EW200EMH has an operating weight of 22.8 tonnes, a forward reach of around 10 metres and an overall pin height of 11.2 metres.
