AUSA has launched its electric vehicle range online, consisting of the D151AEG dumper with a 1,500 kg payload, and the T164E telehandler with a 1,600 kg payload and a maximum lift of four metres. These new products will be showcased for the first time at the bauma 2022 trade show. 

All of AUSA's electric vehicles have been designed with an operating range of at least one full working day. The lithium-ion battery pack is managed electronically to offer ideal power and operate in all-terrain conditions that match diesel vehicles. Also, when the accelerator is released, the electric motor reduces the speed instantaneously while the energy is regenerated, extending its range. 

All of AUSA's electric vehicles feature a charging cable, so they can be connected to the for recharging via a 110 V, 230 V, or 415 V socket with a fast charger whenever necessary. 

These two new machines are able to work in enclosed environments with no air circulation, environmentally protected spaces, and work at night due to the reduction in noise emissions.

At the same time, the safety of the operator also increases significantly, as the reduced noise levels also lead to less worker fatigue, while making communication with other workers and operators much more fluid. 

AUSA's D151AEG dumper 

The new D151AEG is AUSA's first electric dumper with a 1,500 kg payload. A dumper with compact dimensions that is ideal for working in small spaces where good manoeuvrability is a must. 

The dumper features a 7.6 kW electric motor with a maximum peak of 17.3 kW and permanent 4WD with excellent all-terrain capabilities, meaning its performance matches that of its diesel equivalent. 

The D151AEG has been designed with an operating range of at least one typical working day for a vehicle in its category, therefore it has a battery capacity of up to 12.3 kWh. The power delivery is managed electronically to obtain the best performance and smoothness with less consumption. The regeneration of the batteries when the accelerator is released or when driving downhill also allows its range to be extended. 

Whenever necessary, the dumper can be connected directly to the mains or a generator with the cable included in the vehicle. The batteries of the D151AEG electric dumper charge from 20 percent to 80 percent in just two hours when charging at 230 V. 

AUSA's T164E telehandler 

The T164E is an electric telehandler with a 1,600 kg payload. With its all-terrain capabilities and a maximum lifting height of four metres, it is ideal for working in emission-free spaces such as greenhouses, enclosed spaces, and working at night due to its minimal noise emissions. 

AUSA's new telehandler has a power of 8.4 kW, with a peak of 21.2 kW, giving it the ability to work on difficult surfaces and gradients of up to 32 percent. 

The telehandler can be charged by connecting the integrated cable to the mains or a generator, going from a charge of 20 to 80 percent in just 3.15 hours at a power of 230 V.
