Dingli has launched an advanced version of its electric boom – the Range Extended Series, which is designed to generate electricity by itself when there are no external charging facilities on site.
The manufacturer says the new hybrid boom series is based on the same specifications as its existing electric boom range. Powered by an 80V 420Ah lithium battery pack, it has a maximum working height of 22-34m and a maximum load of 454kg. It generates power using a built-in universal range extender or ‘mobile charger’. Combined with a tank of fuel, this charges the lithium batteries and ensures the machine can be operated for up to 30 days on site.
In May 2022, Niftylift introduced its all-electric boom range and said that batteries are expected to last four times as long as standard battery-powered machines allowing for more work on a single charge.
The extended boom series currently has two modes of auxiliary power supply. In manual mode, users can switch between pure electric or range extension mode; in automatic mode the range extender automatically charges the machine when the power is below 30%, and stops generating power when it is above 90%.
If the site is well-equipped with charging facilities, the machine can be charged at any time, without need for the range extender option, Dingli noted.
In June, Haulotte upgraded its COMPACT range of electric scissor lifts and in July, LGMG said it was launching electric telescopic booms for international markets.
