The Little Red Digger Seven Sharp - Takeuchi Electric Excavator TB20e
The Takeuchi TB20e 2-tonne electric excavator took center stage on a Seven Sharp broadcast in July 2023. Touching on some of the innovative changes starting to take place in the NZ infrastructure industry. This piece highlights the work Fulton Hogan and the Auckland Council are doing to explore reducing emissions and making improvements toward their environmental goals. In this article, they talked about key benefits around noise levels and health and safety aspects of this new technology, with the operator's ability to easily communicate with team members nearby and hear people approaching the machine. These are just a couple of the key benefits to businesses looking to make the jump to electric construction equipment and develop their own path toward greener alternatives.
