Tracked access equipment specialist AlmaCrawler has launched an electric off-road compact transporter at APEX.
The fully electric ML 1.5 FX tracked transporter is being presented at the Maastricht show, in the Netherlands, and complements the Italian company’s existing range of Multi-Loader products.
Specifically tailored for crane rental companies, industrial material handling, routine and extraordinary maintenance operations, as well as the glass and glazing sector, the compact ML 1.5 FX has a transport capacity of up to 1,500kg and provides precise positioning of heavy loads. It is designed to navigate tight spaces and manoeuvre easily.
One of the ML 1.5 FX’s key features is its fully electric drive system, eliminating the need for hydraulic oil. It is equipped with two electric motors generating 10.6kW of power, meaning the unit can accelerate to a maximum speed of 2.8km/h, while holding full traction. It has two-speeds, allowing operators to choose between speed and power. In addition, the electric drive system makes the ML 1.5 FX IP67 rated.
Powered by 55Ah AGM batteries, the model offers a charging time of six hours. Additionally, the transporter’s ground clearance of 4cm and gradeability of 45° ensure seamless navigation across various terrains.
Karim Sinno, Almacrawler’s new Material Handling Distribution Manager, said the ML 1.5 FX is a game-changer. “We have incorporated cutting-edge technology and user-centric design to deliver a tracked transporter that exceeds expectations in terms of performance, efficiency, and sustainability.”
