Construction machinery, in any of its variants, is not outside the temporal context in which we live with regard to restrictions of the combustion engine.
Countries such as France, Norway, or the United Kingdom plan to prohibit the combustion engine by the year 2040… this is a long period but the road is immediate and the reforms we are going to see in sectors such as construction are imminent.
We had one example of this trend in the last edition of the BAUMA fair 2019, in which several brands of the sector made the commitment to this technology.
No one doubts the implementation of the battery in electro-portable machinery, such as drills, grinders, Garden machinery, but the passage of this technology to machinery such as battery-powered drilling rigs (Liebherr), scissor lifts (Genie), backhoes (hidromek)…. clearly confirms the path we will see taken in the market.
Even HONDA presented the first Battery-powered engine of the GX series, the new eGX, the first engine of the brand with 2Kw and zero emissions, preserving the reliability of the GX series.
Another circumstance that many suppliers, and the majority of the rental companies mention to us is the limitation of this type of machinery on site.
Often, the work is performed in closed, poorly-ventilated premises, basements or garages, and it is there where regulations are being increasingly applied with regard to confined spaces, noise regulation, etc. This is where traditional combustion engines, give way to electric or battery-powered engines.
In Paving work, carrying a hanging cable means marking the concrete, as well as the natural risk of working with water and electrical cable on the ground … this is why the new E-Batt screed gives an efficient answer to this problem. To be able to work efficiently, with optimal compacting for all types of concretes, avoiding electrical hazards, with a low noise level and without generating waste.
