The
cmx18

Electric mini
excavator

The battery-powered mini excavator takes a proven concept of an electric excavator and improves it. The CMX18 runs solely on lithium-ion batteries that, on a full charge, last up to twelve hours depending on the application. A game changer! Zero-emissions locally, reduces noise levels substantially, maintenance-free, & its compact size makes it suitable for any construction or demolition job site.

Understanding Battery Powered Equipment

HOW RUNTIME WORKS

Some tasks require more power than others (like using a hydraulic hammer or digging in harder soil) and can impact runtimes. 

LIFE CYCLES

A life cycle is the number of times that battery can be charged & discharged before needing to be replaced with a new battery.

WHY 48 VOLTS?

With a 48V system, we're able to sufficiently power the CMX18 for a full day, while not sacrificing power and the time it takes to recharge.

TEMPERATURE NOTES

Extreme weather can impact a batteries performance. Temps below 32 degrees will decrease runtime, while temps above 120 also impact runtime.

Frequently Asked Questions About Electric Excavators

  • How Long Does the CMX18 Run? The Specs Say 6-12 Hours: Great question! The "6-12," hours is by no means an attempt to confuse you. The simple answer is that no power source (fuel, battery, or otherwise) has a definite runtime. What you're doing with the machine will determine how much fuel or battery is drained. Lighter tasks will have a longer runtime, while harder tasks will have a shorter runtime.
  • Why Does It Take 8-16 Hours to Charge?: We make sure to allow you to recharge the CMX18 with as little as only one (1) standard 110v electrical outlet.  There is no need to try to find 220v or 480v/3phase electric onsite.  You can now take your machine to any jobsite and recharge overnight with no issues.  Come back in the morning ready for another day of safe and efficient work.
  • Is the CMX18 as Strong as a Diesel or Gasoline Powered Mini Excavator?: Yes it is! Unlike some other electric mini excavators, we do not skimp on the components that make our machine. We ensure that our excavators are outfitted with the highest quality components to give you the power necessary for the toughest construction or demolition job sites. 
  • Is It Safe to Use The CMX18 Indoors?: Not only is it safe, it's the main reason for its existence. Rather than sticking to exhausting manual labor for interior jobs, our battery-electric excavators allows you to let the machines do the work, making your projects safer and more efficient.
