The machine is equipped with both a fast charge option as well as an exchangeable LFP battery unit with a total of 260 KWh, which guarantees 8 hours of safe running on the work field. LFP batteries are safe to use, non-flammable and are used by UMS for the electrification of construction equipment. All this in consultation with the OEMs. In addition, LFP also has an end of life cycle and are therefore 100% recyclable.
