Tobroco-Giant's new electric skid steer loader offers clean and quiet running
Tobroco-Giant USA is unveiling its innovative electric skid steer loader.
The novel GIANT E-Skid is driven by hydraulic wheel-motors, which are electrically powered by a Jungheinrich battery. This proven electric drivetrain has been used extensively in the forklift sector and offers clean and quiet operation for skid steer loader applications.
Because there are no exhaust emissions, the unit is said to suit duties in tunnel applications or inside buildings, including demolition duties. According to the firm, the GIANT E-skid is set for market distribution in the second half of 2017.
The firm has set up its US operations in Des Moines, Iowa as the independent sales and service office for Netherlands-based GIANT Machinery in North America.
