The Kramer 5055e - in a vehicle class of its own

The Kramer 5055e

The first fully electric wheel loader

CO2 emissions, noise, and soot particles from diesel engines are a thing of the past—the Kramer 5055e is the first all-wheel-steered fully electric wheel loader. The new cost-efficient and emission-free electric drive enables work in buildings and noise-sensitive areas. The 5055e features a compact design and outstanding maneuverability thanks to all-wheel steering. An electric motor is built into the drive system which provides great performance and tractive force.

A second electric motor controls the work hydraulics. The right performance is delivered by the engine depending on the wheel loader requirements and its area of application. Kramer pays special attention to meeting customers' various needs and is able to offer a fully electric wheel loader with the same performance parameters as a diesel-powered vehicle.

New technology: tried and tested quality.

Thanks to the proven undivided chassis, Kramer wheel loaders are ultra stable in all conditions. Due to this special vehicle construction, there is no shift in the center of gravity due to steering movements. On the basis of the Ackermann steering, only the wheels move during steering. Thus, maximum payload and high stability is maintained even on full lock, and on uneven ground.
