Dingli launches large electric/hybrid booms
By Euan Youdale09 August 2022
Dingli has launched nine new electric and hybrid models from 36m - 44m working height.
The new High Metre modular boom series, developed by Dingli’s Germany-based R&D centre, through its part-ownership arrangement with spider specialist Teupen, is produced in the China manufacturing facility.
The addition of the High Metre series now means Dingli’s complete boom range now covers maximum working heights of 16m to 44m, with all models suitable for container transport.
The newly-launched models are available in electric, hybrid or diesel drive, and offer a maximum 454kg capacity in the basket.
Further advantages of the series include its parallel axle system, that with the turn of a key sees the axles extended while the machine is in situ, without driving. This, says the company, greatly reduces tyre wear and makes axle extension easier in narrow spaces.
Offering four steering modes, the models can be used in four-wheel drive steer, as well as crab-steer and a U-turn steering system.
Electric versions of all models come with a 358V200Ah lithium battery pack, offering automotive-level power and efficiency, says the manufacturer.
The Hybrid option is equipped with a high-capacity lithium battery pack and a universal range extender, allowing the machine to regenerate the battery without external power supply.
The Diesel model features a German Deutz engine as standard, offering high level rough terrain performance, and a gradeability of up to 45%.
Designed with a high level of modularity, the series uses the same configuration of structural and hydraulic components across all models, allowing greater versatility and compatibility of accessories.
Other features include the 240-degree luffing angle of the jib, which can be hooked back for container transport.
All electronic control software and hardware has been optimised for maximum safety and performance. The company adds that all this leads to a 40% increase in overall efficiency of the machine.
