Dingli launches range extender series
By Euan Youdale15 July 2022
Dingli has introduced a new hybrid boom lift series designed for work on sites where there is no power supply to charge pure electric equipment.
The new Range Extended Series is an advanced version of Dingli’s lithium battery-powered boom lift offering which comes with a ‘mobile charger’, in the form of a small combustion engine.
The series is based on the same specifications as the company’s existing electric boom range, with maximum working heights of 22m to 34m, maximum load of 454kg and a 80V (420Ah) lithium battery pack.
The build-in universal range extender enables the machine to generate electricity when there are no external charging facilities on site.
Combined with a tank of fuel, the range extender, which charges the lithium batteries, ensures the machine can be used for up to 30 days on site.
The new Range Extended series has two modes of 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.
