Avant Loaders Spotlight Episode 4 - The E6 Electric Loader
This week we point the spotlight on the new Avant E6 which is available now from Pat O'Donnell & Co.
Design and Capabilities
The E6 is the first loader in the world that uses lithium battery technology. The 288 lithium battery can be fully charged in only one hour and comes equipped with an on-board charging unit as standard. This enables charging from any 230V/10A power outlet.
The E6 has two electric motors: a 6kW motor for driving the machine and 2kW for loader boom operation and auxiliary hydraulics. Auxiliary hydraulics flow is 30 l/min, which allows working with various Avant attachments including a hydraulic hammer and various grapples.
Lithium-ion battery technology provides significantly better performance compared with lead-acid batteries. In light use, lithium battery performance is roughly 30% better than lead-acid batteries. In heavy use, the operating time is up to three times longer and the lithium battery can be fully charged within one hour on a rapid charge station. This enables the operator to charge the machine from 0%-100% over the space of a lunchbreak.
A lithium battery pack is 30% lighter than a lead-acid battery and it gives the opportunity to control the loader payload according to intended use. A lower ground pressure is also achieved with a lighter machine which would be ideal for working on floors and roofs where weight is relevant.
Selection of attachments
With over 100 attachments available, this light, multifunctional machine is ideal for working indoors where fumes and noise could be an issue and outdoors in industries such as landscaping and general construction.
There are a number of industry-specific attachments to choose from such as sweeper brushes, buckets, sand/salt spreader, horse arena harrow, square bale grab and big bag transporter.
