M O’Brien took the first units from Faresin late last year, with a further two now delivered. The units offer a six metre lift height, 2,600kg lift capacity and a forward reach of 3.1 metres at which it can handle 900kg. The standard 300Ah battery will last up to six hours of constant typical use, with a recharge time of 1.5 hours from zero with the external fast charger. The standard 110 volt on board charger is also available and can be used for an overnight recharge.
Since purchasing the first two Faresin Full Electrics O’Brien also ordered two units of JCB’s new electric compact telehandler, due for delivery later this year.
Managing Director Michael O’Brien said “As early adopters of new technology, we committed to trying out the Faresin 6.26 Full Electric with an initial order last year. When you’re involved with new and innovative products, there’s always an element of chance, but to date the feedback on our electric range of equipment has been nothing but positive and we are committed to building upon our eco friendly range with more electric and hybrid equipment to be delivered throughout 2021.”
