Electric machines

No emissions, high efficiency, loads of energy 

Definite extra-plus: ease of serviceability.

Electric drives are today’s forward-looking trend – not only in cars, but also in mobile material handling machines. This is especially the case with indoor applications, stationary machines, and rail undercarriage machines, in which powerful zero-emission electric drives that are extremely easy to maintain have very tangible advantages. Some of these include low operating and servicing costs, low noise emissions and heat build-up, and the extensive use of standard components from our range of diesel engine models, which ensures that spare parts will be widely available.

  • Load manager: The pylon’s pyramidal shape optimally transmits forces into the machine’s base. In addition, the extra-wide undercarriage with optional 800-mm flat shoes makes it possible to handle extremely large loads at a range of up to 18 m.
  • Perfect view: A second pylon can be mounted on the pylon that is integrated into the undercarriage. This makes it possible to reach eye levels of up to 10 m – providing a perfect line of sight into stationary shears.
  • Easy climb: The machine’s ergonomic ladder access systems are designed according to the latest state of the art, certified by the German BG-BAU construction employers’ liability insurance association, and ensure quick, safe, and convenient access to the unit.
  • Electrifying power: With its total output of 184 kW, the 67-tonne machine’s electric drive gets the unit’s high-performance hydraulic system moving quickly whenever necessary.
  • Mobile task force: A 50-m cable reel extends the machine’s working range. Having plug connections at various points is an easy way to multiply the machine’s locations of use.
  • Tough as nails: The machine’s structural characteristics, all the way from the undercarriage to the dipperstick, are perfectly adapted to the tough day-to-day work that characterizes recycling and scrap handling operations. Needless to say, so are all of the unit’s other components. This results in maximum sturdiness, ease of maintenance, and durability.

  • Service weight: 73.5 tonnes
  • Motor: The MHL885 D is powered by a highly effi cient electric drive unit, enabling enormous energy savings. The main drive delivers 250 kW, while the total machine rating is 280 kW.
  • Cab: The operator cab features continuous hydraulic elevation. It is compliant with all the latest safety regulations and is fitted with armour plate glass, guaranteeing maximum protection for the operator.
  • Projection: The cranked box boom offers a maximum length of 22 m.
  • Operating radius: Enormous operating diameter of up to 44 m.
  • Undercarriage: The large stabiliser plates ensure maximum stability, even at the furthest point of projection. The MHL390 undercarriage is deployed here.
  • Attachments: Clamshell grab with a volume of 1.2 m3.
  • Handling material: Scrap and bulk bags
  • Material handling volume: 150 t scrap / 450 t bulk bags per hour
  • Cycle times: 17 s for scrap and approx. 22 s for bulk bags
  • Operational safety: All access ladders are ergonomically designed and meet the latest engineering standards. This ensures a high level of operational safety when mounting /dismounting and when accessing the maintenance platform. Each access ladder is individually checked on the machine by BG-Bau [German statutory accident insurance association for the construction industry].
  • Machine options: Supports can be up to 1.4 m and boom up to 24 m. Machine also available with diesel engine. Crawler undercarriage, port lift cab concept.

    MHL820

    Clean indoor performance

    • Compact and agile: With a 20-tonne service weight, a reach of 10.4 meters and 4-point stabilization, the MHL820 is ideally suited for a wide range of recycling/ scrap handling duties.
    • Power to spare: With its high torque and a total power output of 97.5 kW, there is ample power in reserve for rapid maneuvering, even with heavy loads.
    • Staying mobile: Using the power cable as its supply source (other options available, such as cable reel), the MHL820 can move around quickly within the cable’s generous range; this direct power connection means no need for refueling journeys or for battery charging downtime.
    • Quiet and clean: No exhaust gases, little noise and very little heat output – these are the features which make the MHL820 the natural choice when operating indoors or close to residential areas.
    • Low operating costs: The electric drive means not only low running costs; exceptional ease of maintenance also means good savings on service costs.
    • Familiar operation: Machine controls, including the familiar CAN BUS system, are almost identical with those of the diesel variant, so the operator doesn’t need to learn to operate the machine afresh.
    • Numerous options: The Fuchs® MHL820 can be equipped with a good range of options. Examples include LED lights, dust protection, armoured glass, and special grab attachments, such as a radiation detector incorporated into the grab for use when handling medical waste.
