Italian equipment maker Faresin recently presented what it claims to be the world’s first fully electric telescopic handler.
Developed on the same chassis as the 6.26 telescopic handler, the electric model overcomes the problems of emissions and noise, “opening the field to a new range of uses (and) interpreting the technological change that is revolutionising mobility as we have known it until today”.
The new machine is suitable for indoor operation as well as use in densely populated areas.
At the other end of the spectrum, Faresin has shown off emissions-reduced versions of its large machines, the 14.42 Classic 74 and 17.40 Classic 55.
The Big Range series boasts models capable of reaching a maximum height of 17 m and a load capacity of up to 4.5 T. At the recent Bauma show, the company displayed models equipped with 55.4 kW Deutz Stage IIIB engines, which guarantee reduced consumption, high performance and easy maintenance. The machines are also available with 74.4 kW Stage IV engines.
Faresin Industries, founded in 1973 by Sante Faresin, designs, manufactures and sells telescopic handlers for agricultural and industrial use as well as feed mixer wagons and ration analysis instruments for the livestock sector.
