The future of Battery Powered Construction Machines…a profile of Battery Power Mini Excavators

Battery Excavators, Electric Excavators

We all know about Elon Monk and the barriers Tesla have been breaking over the past number of years.  In fact, according to Forbes, since the Tesla IPO in 2010, which raised 19 billion and had a negative cash flow of 9 billion dollars.  Crazy figures, but you have to give them credit, they broke the mould and forced the established car manufacturers to up their game from an eco-friendly perspective.  So, who is leading the way within the Construction Industry with regards to Battery and Electric powered construction equipment?

We will try and stay focused on Battery Powered Mini Excavators in the blog post and take a generic overview of the sector.

Interesting point… what percentage of the global carbon emissions are from construction type machines? 11%, yes, quite a high percentage and it is only a matter of time before the government of this world start to address this rather high percentage. It is only a matter of time before the combustion powered machines are phased out.
