M O’Brien Plant Hire have become one of the first companies in the UK to take delivery of the all-electric Faresin telehandler.

The purchase was made directly from UK dealer GGR Group.

The new Faresin Electric Telehandler is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack, which unlike regular lead acid batteries can be opportunity charged without any damage or reduction to the battery life.

A fast-charging system allows the batteries to be rapidly topped up at convenient intervals throughout the day, such as during breaks.

A regular 110-volt on-board charger is included when larger power supplies are not available and can be used for an overnight charge.

The standard 300Ah battery will last up to six hours of typical use with a rapid recharge time of 1.5 hours from zero with the external fast charger.

Dan O’Brien, Director Of M O’Brien said “M O’Brien like to be early adopters of new technology and we feel that the new Faresin 6.26 Full Electric is a step in the right direction for the industry.

“Just because these units are electric does not mean that they can only run forks. This machine is fitted with a Hydraulic Quick Hitch for rapid removal and attaching of implements, giving the Faresin 6.26 Electric Telehandler a versatile role on site.

“We have a number of attachments including buckets and sweepers to cater for our customer’s needs.“

UK Faresin Sale Manager Sam Edwards said “M O’Brien plant have been ahead of the curve investing in exciting new electric technologies for sustainability and emissions regulations. The future of plant on UK building sites is changing and this change is something that M O’Brien have recognised and invested in.

“The machines have already been sent out to prestigious sites across London and I look forward to working with Dan to grow his Faresin electric telehandler fleet.”
