Good Morning

Here we go for 2021 with a growing team at Landex and Etrucks.

XCMG have announced phase one of an NZ $1.2 billion “new energy” factory. The project will cover 67 hectares and be used for electric trucks as well as manufacturing XCMG’s own components such as batteries, electric motor control systems etc.

As well as being the largest on highway electric truck in New Zealand, Eastland’s E700 watercart probably has the best graphics.


Introducing Kanishka Gunawardhana our new senior EV technician. Kanishka has many years experience as an auto electrician, recently working on PHEVs in Auckland.

XCMG have sold another 200 8×4 electric dump trucks with battery swapping capability for a project near Xuzhou. We have ordered both 6×4 tractors and 8×4 cab chassis for New Zealand.

We can now accept orders for the 6 tonne XC818EV fully electric wheel loader.

XCMG are now the largest crane manufacturer in the world.

XCMG’s first plug in hybrid crane the XCT25EV can operate on diesel, battery and while tethered to the electricity supply.

Rio Tinto have joined BHP in moving on from traditional suppliers like Caterpillar, to purchase their first batch of XCMG graders.

If you need a bigger hi-ab how about the SQZ4500 knuckle crane with 90 tonne lift and 23m outreach?

The larger 10m platform crawler scissors have been completed and will arrive in New Zealand in early March.

The chunky new look of the “Max” series heavy duty excavators from XCMG.
Sales of XCMG excavators are booming worldwide with the factory output doubling since 2018.
