Faresin to exhibit updated electric telehandler
By Leila Steed21 April 2023
Faresin Industries has revealed that it is to present an updated version of its 6.26 Full Electric telehandler model, with the machine set to be the manufacturer’s standout exhibit at this season’s major equipment trade shows.
The new 6.26 Full Electric MY 2023 model is a redesigned version of the original 6.26 Full Electric model introduced in 2018 with full production starting in 2020.
It is set to be shown at the upcoming APEX 2023 trade event in Maastricht, the Netherlands, in June, as well as at other European trade fairs such as Samoter in Italy and Vertikal Days in the UK.
As its name suggests, it has a maximum reach of 5.9m and a load capacity 2.6 tonnes. It produces zero CO2 emissions and offers reduced noise levels, and is fitted with a new 80-Volt high-performance battery pack that benefits from an increased life and offers reduced charging times.
Equipment buyers can choose from the standard 24kW/h battery or the 32 and 43kW/h options, which provide working times of 6, 8 and 11 hours respectively.
The telehandler comes with a redesigned single-phase on-board charger as standard that can charge the machine in half the time as company’s 2018 model.
It is also available with an external three-phase charger that charges the battery in just over 3 hours, a three-phase FAST external charger with a charging time of just over an hour and an onboard FAST charger that can charge the machine model in just over two hours.
“Compared to the version that was presented five years ago, the 6.26 Full Electric MY 2023 can be configured with four charging systems, depending on frequency of use and intensity of work cycles,” said Faresin.
“This broad range of chargers allows to meet the needs of customers from all parts of the world, who can then have different input voltages while offering the same final charging capacity.”
Other standout features of the model include a dedicated 18kW S3 boom hydraulics motor, an energy recovery system and a redesigned cab.
The cab is equipped with a new colour display with a push-button panel for easy menu navigation and a more responsive joystick. Air conditioning is also available as an optional extra.
The updated 6.26 will be showcased at this seasons trade shows along with larger machines from its Big Range Full Electric line-up.
The 14.42, 17.40 and 17.45 models, which offer maximum lifting capacities of 4.2, 4.0 and 4.5 tonnes respectively, made their debut at Bauma 2022 in Germany, and demonstrate the company’s drive towards “sustainable innovation”.
Sante Faresin, Faresin President, said, “We are currently experiencing an extraordinary season of success in the international markets thanks to a vision of sustainable development, where machines use smart technologies that increase the profitability of the customers’ business and reduce consumption and CO2 emissions at the same time.
“Sustainability has become an increasingly important added value of our new products. Therefore, we plan to make major investments to double production with an increasingly eco-friendly product.”
