Following on from the launch of its electric-powered 19C-1E mini-digger and 30-19E Teletruk, JCB continues to expand its line-up of ‘E-Tech’ machines with the reveal of an electric-powered Loadall telehandler model.
Combining the capability of a telehandler with the functionality of a tractor, Merlos MultiFarmer is proving a worthwhile purchase for one Cornish grower.

Now in partnership with Liebherr to build its telehandlers and wheeled loaders, has Claas made the right decision in teaming up with the fellow German firm?
