DIECI-e: electric telehandlers for rental

Innovation and sustainability are the two major topics that have revolutionised the world of machinery in recent years. In fact, the new market requirements have pushed manufacturers to revolutionise their range of products, with a new focus on sustainability.

Taking part in this change, the new DIECI telehandlers are characterised by a greener design, focusing, as always, on performance and versatility. The result is a new range of electrically powered solutions designed to meet the needs of industry leaders and to offer the telehandler rental sector a new and important competitive advantage within their fleets.

Zero emissions and greater versatility: the benefits of rental telehandlers are growing

Rental has always been a standard-bearer for the concept of sustainability. The sharing economy has enabled many companies to optimise their spending, gaining access to high-performance vehicles at a lower investment cost, improving performance and always using the right vehicle for each specific need.

Today, with increasingly stricter regulations on emissions, these companies are called upon to focus on even more innovative vehicles, expanding their fleet with environmentally friendly solutions that meet the different needs of the sector.

Constantly listening to the needs of the telehandler rental sector, DIECI has created a new range of electric telehandlers offering important benefits, such as:

  • Lower maintenance costs due to the use of lithium batteries. In fact, they require far less periodic servicing than conventional diesel engines;
  • Access to tax benefits associated with new trends in sustainability;
  • Customisable and flexible telehandlers that can be adapted to specific customer requirements;
  • High-performance vehicles capable of meeting strict constraints without compromising on performance.

Dual Energy: the Pegasus rotating telehandler for rental

As far as the rental sector is concerned it is essential to offer customers versatile and efficient machines in every operating context. To meet these needs, DIECI has designed the new Dual Energy system, introduced on Pegasus Classic rotary telehandlers, making them capable of working at full speed in either full electric or diesel mode.

By installing and activating the Dual Energy kit, with connection to an external electrical socket (380/400V), it is possible to carry out all normal lifting and positioning actions with your telehandler, with the exception of translation, without starting the endothermic engine, either from the cab or from the remote controller.

Companies in the sector can thereby:

  • Operate at full capacity, complying with current environmental regulations;
  • Work even inside closed or residential areas, thanks to the product’s quiet operation;
  • Use the electric motor indoors, without the need for ventilation devices;
  • Gain access to a highly versatile product

In addition, the very make-up of the kit offers several advantages designed for the telehandler rental sector:

  • The removable kit can be easily disassembled and installed on a different vehicle. The vehicle only needs to be Dual Energy ready to use the kit.
  • The simplicity and safety of the system require no special training, allowing this product to be exploited right from the start;
  • Maintenance is easy, thanks to a compartment that can be opened for quick inspection at any time;
  • Reduced consumption, using a 100% electric power supply.

One solution, endless benefits: with dual energy, the rental and construction worlds gain access to a high-performance product that is even more versatile, powerful and cost-effective, increasing competitiveness within their target market.

Beyond the limits with Apollo-e: the Full Electric DIECI telehandler

The electric world revolution led by DIECI does not stop there, and also addresses the specific needs of those companies that require vehicles capable of overcoming the typical limitations of electric vehicles. By paying close attention to current trends, the Apollo-e 26.6 was launched, combining all the qualities of DIECI telehandlers with the advantages of an electric power supply.

The main features of this full electric telehandler are:

  • The 44 kWh dual lithium battery (LiFePo);
  • The e-modular power pack, a modular system that allows the second battery to be added or removed at any time;
  • The standard “all-in-one” on-board charging system is suitable for any charging infrastructure commonly found on construction sites;
  • Three recharging electrical sockets: industrial (110/220V), three-phase (380/400V) and Mode 3 Type 2 (charging stations), located at fully accessible points on the vehicle. The electrical sockets charge with the bonnet closed for greater operator safety and to prevent vandalism.
  • Special battery arrangement for easy vehicle set-up even on the construction site.

Of all these features that make the Apollo-e 26.6 unique, the big strong point for the rental sector is its modularity, which:

  • allows the rental company to offer a telehandler with 1 or 2 lithium batteries, providing the customer with a solution fully in line with actual production requirements;
  • optimises the rental company’s investment even in the long term. In fact, the set-up for the Apollo-e 26.6 full electric telehandler is also fully compatible with the new features still under development. This means that the vehicle can also be upgraded in the years ahead, allowing rental companies to offer their customers even more innovation and lower investment costs.

With the 100% electric Apollo-e 26.6 telehandler, companies in the sector will have access to a vehicle that is perfectly configurable and adaptable, whatever their specific production and site requirements, whether they are for low energy or intensive use. The Apollo-e 26.6 is designed to cater to all market requirements, with the minimal compromise possible.

Thanks to the electric world of DIECI telehandlers, the telehandler rental industry has the opportunity to expand its fleet by investing today in the telehandlers, technology and innovation of tomorrow.
