New Electric Dumpster From JCB

27 August 2020

JCB has introduced an electric version of its HTD-5 Dumpster tracked carrier, adding to its growing range of fully electric E-Tech models.

The HTD-5e E-Dumpster is a high-tip, walk-behind model, capable of carrying up to 500kg. The addition of electric drive makes the machine suitable for urban and indoor applications, that require low noise and zero exhaust emissions, according to JCB

It added that the key features include a 9 kW electric motor delivering travel speeds of up to 3km/h, a maximum two-hour charging time, zero emissions at point of use
and 500kg capacity and 1,450mm skip ground clearance in tipping position .

The E-Dumpster is powered by a 48V lithium-ion battery pack,  that can be recharged using a standard 240V or 110V electrical supply. Maximum recharge time is two hours, making it possible to top up the battery when not in use during the working day or overnight, said JCB. Sunderland, England-based Hyperdrive supplied the battery pack although the supplier of the electric motor has not been revealed.

Designed to meet the needs of contractors and rental companies, the E-Dumpster provides a zero-emissions solution for indoor work, tunnelling applications and other urban sites requiring zero emissions equipment, said JCB. With no internal combustion engine, service and maintenance requirements are also reduced, boosting uptime and availability, it added.

The company has already introduced the 19C-1E fully electric mini excavator and the 30-19E Teletruk industrial telescopic forklift. In addition, JCB offers a range of electrically-powered access platforms, while JCB’s Power Products division has launched a line of electric powerpacks, to provide recharging facilities for electric machinery in off-grid applications.
