First Green Industries Unveils New Electric Skid Steer (Elise 700)

First Green Industries just announced the launch of the Elise 700, a groundbreaking addition to its skid steer loaders. The Elise 700 is a lighter version of the famous Elise 900, designed with a lithium battery, providing longer run times and faster recharging than traditional lead-acid batteries.

The Elise 700 is precisely engineered to cater to smaller agricultural and construction operations, offering an optimal balance between power and maneuverability. Its lightweight design, lithium battery, and narrower wheels make it highly portable and versatile, making it an ideal choice for businesses seeking to optimize their operations without compromising performance or efficiency.

“When battery-operated drills were first introduced into the market, they faced skepticism. Now, cordless drills are the norm due to their convenience and efficiency. Similarly, while electric skid steers may be a relatively new concept, they will become mainstream as more people recognize their benefits.” Ken Pederson, Sales Manager at Evolution Mechanical.

In addition to its practical advantages, the Elise 700 is also environmentally friendly. With zero emissions, it helps reduce air pollution and create a healthier work environment. This is particularly beneficial for indoor projects where ventilation may be limited.

“The Elise 700 offers many advantages of being safe, quiet, and cost-effective. “Their ability to operate safely indoors, thanks to their zero-emission. This feature alone opens up a whole new range of possibilities for indoor construction or renovation projects,” said Pederson. “It’s incredibly quiet during operation, making communicating on the job site easy. You can easily converse with the operator without shouting over a traditional diesel engine.”

“In terms of cost-effectiveness, electric skid steers are a smart business choice for those looking to save money in the long term. They eliminate the need for many components in electric skid steers, which means less maintenance and fewer repair costs. Such as hoses, fuel and filters can save you upwards of $8,000 per year,” said Pederson.The new model comes when the industry increasingly seeks sustainable and efficient solutions. This allows operators to work for extended periods without stopping and recharging frequently. The narrower wheels also contribute to the skid steer’s enhanced transportability, as it can easily fit through narrow spaces and maneuver in tight areas.

Whether for agricultural or construction operations, this Elise 700 electric skid steer offers exceptional performance, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. If you are located in Canada, contact our distributor, For more information about the Elise 700, please visit
