On behalf of our holding Huppenkothen, we have developed electric versions of three Takeuchi diesel excavators and have built the prototypes and produced the first batches. Today, around 30 SUNCAR electric excavators are in use in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France, Spain and Norway. Most of them are part of Huppenkothen’s rental park. Others, on the other hand, have been sold to customers.
SUNCAR’s electric excavator fleet consists of three models: the TB216E (1.6 t), the TB260E (7 t) and the TB1140E (16 t). The electric excavators combine all the proven characteristics of a Takeushi excavator, such as smooth operating hydraulics, powerful machine performance and excellent serviceability, with the emission-free electric power train from SUNCAR HK.
All three models are equipped with a synchronous axial flux motor for higher dynamic and greater torque, along with the original high performance hydraulic system for better efficiency. The battery system is installed in the rear area of the excavator and provides the energy needed for the power train and onboard electronics. The redundant installation of several batteries guarantees highest reliability.
