3 REASONS WHY ELECTRIC CONSTRUCTION MACHINES ARE THE FUTURE
Environmental legislation in
different countries is being improved every year. Norms of emissions of harmful
substances are being tightened, as are the mechanisms for their control. In
such conditions, the industrial sector has to redesign and rebuild the standard
models of machines and update technology.
Electric construction machines, such as excavators, loaders and others have been rising in popularity in the last years. More and
more companies and individuals prefer electric machines to diesel and even hydraulic ones. In this article, we would like to explain why.
1. High efficiency
These machines do not require any filters, oils and other
consumables. The maintenance is not pricy and not hard, it mainly includes
replacing bearings and cleaning the power unit. It is also highly efficient at
low temperatures. There’s no risk of freezing the fuel as happens with diesel
models. In general electric machines are not sensitive to temperature changes.
2. Low noise
As we know, the construction job sites make a lot of
noise. This causes inconvenience to both workers and people. Very often because
of these reasons constructions are performed with shorter workdays and working
hours. Electric excavators and skid loaders solve this problem as they produce
a very low noise which even allows workers to talk to each other on the job
3. Zero emission
Electric earthmoving machines are environmentally
friendly as they meet zero-emission requirements. As a construction worker,
spending the whole day at the job site means inhaling fumes and exhaust gases.
Electric machines do not rely directly on burning fuels, so they are harmless
for both machine operators and residents of surrounding areas.
As you can see,
even these three reasons are strong enough to push the whole global construction
industry towards manufacturing and using electric machines. At WEITAI we try to
keep up with the trends, and design and manufacture electric excavators and
skid loaders as well. To learn more about our machinery please send a message
