In a quest to reduce its carbon emissions, Eurovia have sent the UK’s first 100% battery three-tonne excavator to site.  Supplied by Volvo, the ECR25 mini excavator boasts the same performance specifications as the diesel-powered version, but with zero emissions and noise reduction.  It can work for 4 consecutive hours on a full charge.  Two charge options are available:  A 16-amp power source for over-night; and a 32 amp fast-charge system that can achieve a full-charge in approximately one hour and 15 minutes.
