It brings to eight the number of six-metre Faresin electric telehandlers that Sunbelt runs.

It also has 10 of the similar-sized JCB 525-60E Loadall electric telehandlers.

Sunbelt originally bought three Faresin 6.26 Full Electric telehandlers from the Italian manufacturer’s UK dealer, GGR, last year.  Customer feedback has prompted it to buy some more.

Rentals asset management director Andrew Winlow said: “We have been impressed by what we have seen from the Faresin 6.26 Full Electric so far and customer feedback has been very positive.”

He added: “Faresin continues to innovate at pace and is making products such as the electric telehandler readily available in the marketplace, with further development planned for later in the year. While GGR Group, the importer has made a commitment to stock and we’re seeing machines arrive monthly, all of this has been key to our partnership success and is allowing us to respond to customer demand.”

The Faresin 6.26 FE is powered by a lithium-ion battery. It can handle loads of up to 2,600kg and has a maximum six-metre lift height and a three-metre forward reach. The similar-sized JCB, which also appears in Sunbelt’s catalogue, has a 2,500kg safe working load capacity.
