FIRSTGREEN Industries launches ROCKEAT, the electric, cabinless skid steer loader

FIRSTGREEN Industries, the manufacturer of what it says is the first and only commercially available all-electric, zero-emissions skid steer loader, has launched ROCKEAT, the company’s newest line of electric, cabinless skid steer loaders.

Designed with a low clearance, 360° camera and remote operability, ROCKEAT machines redefine safety and efficiency in mining, construction and other hazardous industries, it says.

ROCKEAT is designed to prioritise operator safety through its cabinless design and remote control operability, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries on job sites. As an all-electric skid steer, ROCKEAT produces zero carbon emissions, minimum operating fluids and near-silent operation, transforming the industry standard of loud, dangerous and dirty diesel-powered machinery into a safer, healthier and environmentally sustainable solution, FIRSTGREEN says.

“We are thrilled to introduce ROCKEAT skid steers to the US market, which represents a significant leap forward in safety and sustainability for traditionally dangerous, high-emission industries like construction and mining,” Marcus Suess, Chief Operating Officer for FIRSTGREEN Industries in North America, said. “With continued national support to accelerate the expansion of critical mineral mining projects on home soil, we take great pride in offering a solution that not only addresses pressing environmental concerns but also contributes to the resurgence of homegrown industry.”

ROCKEAT machines are charged using a standard 110 V or 220 V outlet, with no specialised charging equipment or infrastructure required. They are also equipped with a battery management system that can sustain up to eight hours of continuous operation.

The machines are specifically designed with a low profile to navigate and function efficiently in confined or restricted spaces, providing manoeuvrability and durability. Machine precision is achieved through four individual speeds for both hydraulic and travel functionalities. These can be further modified by the operator. And ROCKEAT functionality allows operators to finetune each of the four travel speeds for optimal performance in specific tasks.

The new ROCKEAT line includes 700 and 1200 models that are 67 in (1.7 m) and 71 in wide, respectively, and compatible with lead-acid and lithium batteries. With a maximum power of 3 x 36.2 hp (27 kW), maximum torque of 3 x 89 foot-pounds, and load capacity of 1,500 to 3,300 pounds, ROCKEAT sets a new standard with unparalleled features, versatility and performance capabilities, the company says.
