Knikmops KM 180 E (KM180E) - 100% electric

The electrical Knikmops, one size bigger...

In developing the Knikmops 180 E, Gebroeders Geens aimed to achieve a full workday for its electrical articulated loader. With their latest Knikmops, the Belgian manufacturer has moved even closer to a 100% electric model.

That development process was more challenging for the Knikmops KM 180 E, since the larger articulated loader also has to move more hydraulics than the Knikmops KM 140 E – and is nearly 200 kg heavier. Overcoming these challenges, Gebroeders Geens managed to achieve a full workday with the energy-efficient motor of this Knikmops. Depending on the load, the Knikmops user has two options: 

A 20 kWh battery that powers the Knikmops KM 180 E for about 4 hours, or a 30 kWh battery that gives the operator about 7 hours. That means that the zero-emission wheel loader can be fitted with a large or small battery pack depending on what the end client needs. Various chargers can also be used, so the Knikmops can be connected to a 220 V outlet or a 380 V quick charger. This means that the electrical Knikmops can be tailored to accommodate the customer's specific needs.

The articulated loader has an unladen weight of about 2000 kg, maintaining the convenience of transporting the Knikmops on a trailer, with any attachments that may be needed. The Knikmops KM 180 E can operate in low gear or high gear, offering speeds up to 8 kmph or 18 kmph. As a result, the Knikmops operator can use more pushing power in low gear, or shift up to drive faster on paved roads. This Knikmops is designed to use hydraulics precisely when needed – during work or when moving the machine – and avoid overloading the pump. In addition it has a continuous 4-wheel drive thanks to four separate hydromotors on the wheels. This drive is controllable with a difflock or can be - optionally - switched electrically.

This electrical wheel loader excels in the three key features of Knikmops: compact, multifunctional and sustainable. The steel chassis guarantees that the articulated loader is robust, developed for hard work. This Knikmops is a reliable resource, every day without fail – now with zero emissions.

The photos on the website do not show the standard configuration for the electrical articulated loader. The standard Knikmops KM 180 E may deviate from the photos.
