FIRSTGREEN Industries Launches ROCKEAT Electric Skid Steer Loader, Pioneering Powerful, Safe and Zero-Emissions Solution for Mining, Construction and Other Hazardous Industries


FIRSTGREEN Industries, the global manufacturer of the first and only commercially available all-electric, zero-emissions skid steer loader, today announced the launch of ROCKEAT, the company's newest line of electric, cabinless skid steer loaders. Designed with a low clearance, 360-degree camera and remote operability, ROCKEAT machines redefine safety and efficiency in critical mining, construction and other hazardous industries.

Mining fatalities went up by 31% from 2022 to 2023 while construction fatalities continue to steadily increase. ROCKEAT addresses these alarming statistics by prioritizing operator safety through its cabinless design and remote control operability, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries on job sites. As an all-electric skid steer, ROCKEAT produces zero carbon emissions, minimum operating fluids and near-silent operation, transforming the industry standard of loud, dangerous and dirty diesel-powered machinery into a safer, healthier and environmentally sustainable solution.

"We are thrilled to introduce ROCKEAT skid steers to the U.S. market, which represents a significant leap forward in safety and sustainability for traditionally dangerous, high-emission industries like construction and mining," said Marcus Suess, chief operating officer for FIRSTGREEN Industries in North America. "With continued national support to accelerate the expansion of critical mineral mining projects on home soil, we take great pride in offering a solution that not only addresses pressing environmental concerns but also contributes to the resurgence of homegrown industry."

Key features of ROCKEAT skid steers include:

The new ROCKEAT line includes 700 and 1200 models that are 67 inches and 71 inches wide, respectively, and compatible with lead-acid and lithium batteries. With a maximum power of 3x36.2 horsepower, maximum torque of 3x89 foot-pounds, and load capacity of 1,500 to 3,300 pounds, ROCKEAT sets a new standard with unparalleled features, versatility and performance capabilities.
