Visitors to the Midlands Machinery Show will have the opportunity to see the latest electric work vehicles.
Introducing the new Avant E6 loader, a battery powered electric loader, is Avant Machinery. “We want to give everyone a real-life practical demonstration of what benefits a zero emissions machine can offer,” explains Richard Jenkins at Avant UK.
The firm will be demonstrating the machine’s capabilities together with different attachments. “We span a large range of sectors with our machines and attachments, which appeal to many businesses and industries,” says Mr Jenkins.
“So we want to demonstrate a range of versatile attachments that benefit all and show that a zero emissions machine doesn’t have to be a one trick pony,” he adds.
There will also be an opportunity to ask any burning questions.
“The industry is starting to think more about zero emissions but have their concerns and doubts towards this next step. We want to tackle these preconceived ideas head on, by showing the machines in action and proving the capabilities in a practical application.”
For those interested in zero emission grass cutting, whether as a homeowner, contractor or for municipality – Iseki Tractors will be demonstrating its Raymo mower. The radio-controlled mower is beneficial from a safety point of view too.
Reesink Agriculture will be showcasing FarmTrac’s flagship model, the FT25G – the industry’s first all-electric tractor. Powered by a 72V lithium-ion battery and onboard charger, it can be charged from a domestic socket to 100% in eight hours.
For visitors wanting to continue the sustainable theme, NFU East Midlands is holding their annual environment conference on ‘Carbon – opportunity, not problem’, says show manager Elizabeth Halsall.
“With the agricultural industry making steps towards net zero, it’s great to be able to demonstrate electric machinery in practice and allow visitors a chance to answer their burning questions.”
