100% electric: Technology that excites
CO2 exhaust fumes, noise and soot particles in buildings — that was yesterday! The new 1160 eHoftrac banishes emissions from your everyday work. It combines the usual useful properties and the time-tested and proven performance of our Hoftrac with the latest technology and an environmentally conscious and cost-effective electric drive.
The machines of the 11- and 12-series lines of products are usually deployed for several hours of stable work in early mornings and late evenings. The classic 1160-series Hoftrac is used by Weidemann as the first fully electric eHoftac. One battery charge suffices for a work application of 2–5 hours, depending on the application conditions. This working duration is
quite sufficient for machines in such a performance category under normal conditions. The concept of the eHoftrac is based on many years of tried and proven high-volume technology from conveying technology.
A lead-acid battery drives the eHoftrac to peak performances – and only requires an electrical connection with 400 volts to do so. Two separate electric motors are used in the machine: one for the drive and one for the drive system of the work hydraulics. This minimises the power consumption, because the performance is only drawn when it is really needed. The electric motor for the drive also allows a dynamic and powerful start-up of the machine. This can be felt in every acceleration process.
