JCB Teletruk goes electric to reach new markets

Until now JCB’s Teletruk telescopic FLTs have been powered by diesel and LPG and used predominantly in outdoor applications. With the launch of the new electric model, the Teletruk now becomes suited for tasks inside buildings as well as outside.

 

JCB Chief Innovation Officer Tim Burnhope said: “When the JCB Teletruk was first launched it challenged conventional thinking and as well as offering a better way of doing things, it disrupted an established, mature market.

 

"We are hugely excited at the opportunities presented with the launch of an electric powered Teletruk because it opens up so many new markets for us.”

 

JCB Industrial General Manager Paul Murray said: “Almost 250,000 electric forklifts are sold around the world every year, with Europe accounting for almost two thirds of the market.

 

“Until now the Teletruk has been offered with diesel and LP Gas-powered engines and used mostly in outdoor applications. With the launch of the electric-powered JCB 30-19E, the opportunities are huge. We now have a machine that is capable of operating at optimum efficiency both inside and outside the warehouse, distribution centre or factory facility – delivering the ultimate in machine versatility.”

 

Power is provided by an 80-volt lead acid battery which can work a full eight hour shift on a single charge. The battery compartment is positioned at the rear of the truck and has been designed to allow quick and easy battery changeover. Using a single point hoist or another lift truck, the battery can be swapped in around 2 minutes, ensuring truck uptime is maximised.

 

The new Teletruk can climb a 21% gradient or ramp and productivity is further enhanced with full free lift of 1575mm as standard. Like all Teletruk models, the JCB 30-19E features a side-mounted boom and using the telescopic forward reach, it has a lift capacity of 1900kg at 2m, meaning palletised loads weighing can be loaded to the far side of a curtainsided trailer, or a 1600kg load can be place 3m into a van. The machine can load three europallets into a van within two minutes.
