WORLD PREMIERE FOR ePTO.

ENVIRONMENTALLY SMART LOADING SOLUTION

BATTERY OPERATED POWER PACK FOR CRANES

The ePTO allows the loader crane to be prowered electrically by a plug-in system, instead of the vehicle's engine. Using electric power instead of conventional diesel poser offers considerable benefits, including improved energy efficiency, lower noise levels and less environmental impact, while also miking it possible to work indoors


Facts about the loading solution

  • The crane is powered electrically by a plug-in-system (ePTO), which means that it can be operated when the engine is switched off.
  • Ideally suited to sensitive environments and for indoor use.

Crane operation with ePTO

  • No exhaust fumes (carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides or particulates).
  • 60–70 per cent lower energy consumption.
  • 70 per cent lower operating costs.
  • 30 per cent lower noise level.
  • Equal lifting capacity to a conventional crane.

The electric power take off (ePTO) system comprises a battery, an electric motor, a hydraulic pump and a smart electronic control system. This is all packaged in a stainless steel box that is mounted on the truck chassis. A display mounted inside the truck cabin provides information about the current status of the ePTO, which can also be started and
stopped by using the display.

Automatic starting and stopping
Operation of the ePTO in combination with a HIAB X-HiPro loader crane is very straightforward. When the crane is not in use the electric pump is automatically switched off to save energy and battery capacity. As soon as you move a control lever the ePTO starts up again.

Powerful battery with ample capacity
The system’s battery has a capacity of 40 kWh, which is sufficient for an average day of crane work. The battery is recharged at night and can also be support charged at the work place if an electricity supply is available.

Standard hydraulic pump for back-up
The truck is also equipped with a conventional hydraulic pump on the transmission power take off (PTO), so when the PTO is engaged hydraulic oil is supplied by the conventional hydraulic pump. The ePTO will not start in this mode.

CYCLONE
RESERVOIR

MUCH SMALLER, MUCH BETTER

With its patented technology, the Cyclone Reservoir removes air bubbles from the oil 10 times more efficient than a traditional Oil tank.

  • Oil volume reduced by 50 to 200 litres
  • Savings on first fill and every oil change
  • Less weight means improved fuel economy, more payload
  • Less risk of cavitation - Longer life time for both oil and pump

HIGH-FLOW
VARIABLE PUMP

FUEL SAVING, BETTER PERFORMANCE

Using a Variable Oil Pump means less fuel consumption and longer oil life, with lower CO2 emissions and operating costs as a result.

  • Pay-back in less than 1 year due to lower fuel consumption
  • Excellent performance – short reaction time
  • Savings on oil life time and service costs
  • Easy installation with pre-installed settings
