Delivery day for Leach & Co’s XC968EV fitted with solid tyres and ready for work at the Southern Landfill, Ōwhiro Bay, Wellington.

Louis at the Concrete NZ conference in Hamilton with another XC968EV.

At the recent BICEs exhibition in Beijing the fully electric autonomous XDR80TE-AT 80t dump truck was the star of the XCMG stand. The “no cab” truck being loaded on one side with an electric XE215E:

and on the other by an XE968EV

There were plenty of electric loaders on display from other manufacturers, but none as advanced as the XCMG range. Most manufacturers didn’t bother to display diesel loaders.

XCMG’s latest electric 5t and 7t forklifts with 380v BYD batteries.
 
I also visited Shantui in Jining to test drive the fully electric DE26X2 26t bulldozer. Very impressive power, smooth and controllable.

Introducing XCMG’s fully electric 30t telescopic crawler crane. There is also a 95t version
 
Back in Xuzhou I had a brief drive the first XC988EV in the testing area. Perhaps the largest BEV loader available in the market at 8t rated load with a 525kWh battery
 

The green colour XC958EV is a special order of 300 units for a port company.

XCMG are developing a newer version of remote control for the wheel loaders. Just the ticket to load that last truck from the couch.

At the same factory the fully electric 37t grader now has the rippers fitted.
