The GEL line of electric wheel loaders now includes the GEL-5000, Hevi’s newest loader design. Although engineered from the ground up with sustainability in mind, the GEL-5000 can still achieve a 5-ton lifting capacity.
With its expanded battery capacity, the GEL-5000 provides eight hours of operation with as little as three hours of charging time.
Inside the GEL-5000’s air-conditioned cab operators will be comfortable, the company said. All vital metrics are accessible from the monitor. As a result, operators will be aware of everything from the battery’s charge to motor temperature, increasing safety of operation. Users can also keep tabs on the outside of the vehicle with the dash-mounted backup camera, providing a wide range of vision to allow operators to safely avoid collisions with objects or people on the job site.
As with all of Hevi’s equipment, the GEL-5000 is all-electric. As a result, the GEL-5000 isn’t just an industrial workhorse: it also provides several sustainability benefits, the company said.
Naturally, with zero operating emissions, the GEL-5000 is designed for businesses working to meet the latest government regulations.
As an added benefit, the lack of an internal combustion engine eliminates much of the noise found at typical work sites. A true “silent benefit,” this will protect operators from hazardous on-site noise levels.
