Less noise is an important advantage of electric trucks. The E700 8×4 emits 69dB during acceleration compared with 84dB for the diesel equivalent

XCMG’s fully autonomous container handler is now in testing at the port of Tianjin. This one is an LNG/EV hybrid but they are available as pure EV.


XCMG have released their first agri telehandler with a 120hp Deutz engine and a 40kph Danfoss hydrostatic transmission. The 3 tonne/ 7 metre lift machine is priced at $98,000 + GST ex Auckland.

XCMG’s electric forklifts are powered by lithium ion batteries. The run time is eight to ten hours continuous on a two hour charge. This is the smallest unit at 1.5 tonne lift, the range goes through to 3.5 tonne.

Another of our 460hp tracked stabilizers nearly ready to ship to New Zealand.

A couple more mini telehandlers also on their way to Landex.

The latest mining spec GR2605 graders ready to ship to Australia for Rio Tinto. No shortage of communication options on these.


A GR2153 “ski resort” grader with a low speed drive train to reduce noise.

XCMG’s autonomous rollers are now in general use in China. Seen here on a new highway development the operating accuracy is to within 30mm.

An XCA750 crane getting set up to install another wind turbine. Even with a crane of this size there is not a lot of reach to waste with the hub installed at 100m.


A very good video of the process is here:

Two DL560 wheeled dozers are turning in 22 hour days in a Siberian coal mine. The temperature gets down to -50C at the mine that produces 10 million tonnes annually.

An interesting way to handle your casings around the site
