Silence! Garden expert at work.

Creating or maintaining a garden is heavy physical work. An articulated loader can take many tasks off your hands. The Knikmops KM 140 E by Gebroeders Geens, which was presented to the general public earlier this year, combines a compact chassis with lots of power, and is fully electrical. That makes this articulated loader a versatile assistant for every landscaper.

Gebroeders Geens nv, known for the Knikmops & Rollmops, this year presented their new Knikmops KM 140 E. Their objective for many years has been to relieve workers of as much physical labour as possible. To achieve this, they have for more than 30 years been making multifunctional machines that excel in robustness. With a chassis made almost entirely of high-grade steel, a Knikmops is nothing if not robust.

The Knikmops has for many years been a stalwart of the landscaping sector in the Benelux. When developing the electrical variant, the focus was on fuel economy. It works with a small battery, which has many benefits. Not only does it keep the weight and size of the articulated loader low, it also drastically reduces charging times. And perhaps even more importantly, a lower acquisition cost. This is because it is mostly the battery that determines the cost of your electrical articulated loader. The result of this is the Knikmops KM 140 E, available with two different battery packs. 

Standard - Endurance

Gebroeders Geens now presents the market with not one but two options for entrepreneurs who want to transition to zero emissions. The Knikmops KM 140 E Standard has a 20 kWh battery, which is good for an average of 5 hours of hard work. Charging from 0 to 80% is done in 1 hour, or 45 minutes when using the quick charger.

If you prefer to continue working for longer with your Knikmops, then Gebroeders Geens can offer: The Knikmops KM 140 E Endurance. Because the battery has a capacity of 30 kWh, the Knikmops operator can continue working for about 8 hours, and charging can be done in 2 hours and 30 minutes using the quick charger.

This enables users to choose the Knikmops that is perfect for them.

Because the familiar power of Knikmops remains. This articulated loader can lift around 1500 kg, which is a very similar capacity to its diesel sibling the Knikmops KM 140. Operators will also be pleasantly surprised by the driving speed, as the Knikmops KM 140 E moves at a fast 16 km/h.

Silence – garden expert at work

Many questions about electrical applications have come from the horticulture sector, mostly companies working in urban environments. Peace and quiet are often highly important for them. Last year, many people chose to improve their gardens, often with a swimming pond. This gives rise to a need to quickly move large quantities of earth, but with the lowest possible noise pollution for neighbours or owners working from home. The electrical Knikmops KM 140 E offers a solution.

Gebroeders Geens have done extensive testing with the electrical Knikmops KM 140 E in order to assess its capabilities and any areas that might need further fine-tuning. For this, they worked with local entrepreneurs who tested this electrical articulated loader in actual practice.

Experience has shown that the soft murmur of the electromotors is much less likely to be perceived as annoying. This enabled entrepreneurs to start work earlier, without having to plan their earthworks around the neighbourhood's agenda.

Compact, multifunctional and durable

The electrical articulated loader by Gebroeders Geens again keeps the core Knikmops values completely intact. Compact, multifunctional and durable. The compact steel chassis is robust and was developed for demanding jobs. This allows workers to receive true support from a helper like this Knikmops, but this time without emissions

Developments continue apace at Gebroeders Geens, Belgian machine producer.
