ePowerTrucks has been appointed as UK importer and distributor for the Sherpa 100 Eco all-electric mini skid-steer.

The Sherpa range is produced by Netherlands-based Hanenberg Materieel B.V. The 100 Eco is its first fully battery-powered mini skid steer.

The narrow vehicle, which measures 75 cm, is designed to pass through standard garden gates and interior doorways, while its zero exhaust emission is another benefit for indoor operations.

“With zero exhaust emissions it has the flexibility to work indoors and out, making it an attractive hire product,” said Jerry Hanss, managing director of ePowerTrucks.

The Sherpa 100 Eco is just as powerful as the same model with the combustion engine. It has a 2HP front-mounted electric motor and the space that would usually contain an engine is home to a 360A battery pack that powers the mini skid-steer for up to eight hours.

The excavator bucket can lift 110kg to a height of 2.5m or can carry up to 175kg when lowered, while the skid steer offers a turning radius of 2.25m. Available attachments include pallet forks, crane, glass lift, hoist, brick carrier and various bucket types.

The Sherpa joins a growing portfolio of compact, battery-powered plant and materials handling equipment offered by ePowerTrucks. The company, based in Oldham, Greater Manchester, already provides all-electric powered barrows, pallet trucks, burden carriers and tow tractors. It also offers the UK’s largest range of road-legal, battery-powered utility vehicles.
