After all, first hybrids were locomotives, followed by mega dump trucks.I never would have guessed that heavy equipment would move over to electric before the majority of passenger vehicles.
I remember seeing somewhere that the worlds biggest excavator ran off electric, but that was actually hooked up to power lines.
I used to swap out batteries on lift trucks not a fun task.The article said you could get 5-7hrs day out of the charge. Pretty amazing.
I could see where they would create a battery platform where you could change out the power pack like a battery in a saw.
Here's from the mfg website. Quick chargers are lowered to the top of the bus. Can use plug in too. Local article here mentioned the roof charging --- 8 min to get what it needs. Occurs at the central terminal here as all routes pass through it.Cool.
I'm curious how they would recharge onsite.
That's a pretty specialized depot charger. Much much more than you'd get out of an on site charger on a 100A electric service, which would provide about 20KW.
