The new electric wheel loader 24e from Schäffer delivers emission-free operation: exhaust gases and noise are now a thing of the past. This is a significant advantage in emission-sensitive areas such as residential areas, garden facilities and parks, zoos, city centres, cemeteries, the tourism and catering industry, greenhouses and working inside buildings.
The exterior of the machine is similar to the very successful model 2445, a 45 hp machine with a bucket capacity of 0.5 m3. In terms of performance, the electric loader is up to the job: even with an extreme low service weight of just 2,450 kg you will still be able to move complete pallets of paving blocks. An additional benefit is that the loader can easily be transported on a car trailer from one building site to another. Even when loading trucks, the machine cuts an impressive figure thanks a lifting height of 2.50 m.
Under the bonnet, the 24e looks very different to the diesel model. Customers can choose between two lithium-ion battery packs. With the standard battery system, the loader is well equipped for most work. With the help of the power battery system, the operating time of the loader doubles. The power battery system can be retrofitted at any time.
The two charging systems promise additional flexibility: Schäffer offers an on-board charger as standard, which is operated with a standard 230 V power supply. Add an optional 400 V external charger for even faster charging – the power battery system is charged to 80 % in just 30 minutes. This means enough energy for the entire working day with a quick charge, for example during a lunch break. The battery can be charged at any time without affecting the lifetime – another advantage of lithium-ion technology. Speaking of battery lifetime: Schäffer guarantees a running time of 5,000 charging processes or 5 years of operation, whichever comes first.
