First Wimmer E-excavator is running
Last week it finally happened. The eBadger moved to the ZaB (center in the mountain) on the Erzberg and has since completed its first long-term test. The new excavator is driven by an electric motor that delivers up to 50 kW. The e-excavator thus achieves a higher hydraulic performance due to a 15% higher degree of efficiency than the Blue Badger. During the work process, the eBadger is connected to the power grid. The battery is automatically charged with it. The electric motor drives both the hydraulics for moving the machine and the attachments.
