The fully electric E700 8×4 watercart has arrived. Now in testing in Auckland, it will be delivered to Gisborne in early December. We think this is now New Zealand’s largest on highway electric truck
The first of Waste Management’s E300s now delivered prior to the start of Hutt City’s 100% electric fleet for waste collection.
XCMG had it’s usual large presence at this weeks Bauma Shanghai. However the exhibition overall was smaller than usual with attendance well down due the Covid 19.
XCMG’s hydrogen FCEV tipper featuring the new Outlook cabin was released at Bauma. The tipper uses a mix of hydrogen fuel cell and lithium battery to achieve good range but still capture regenerative braking. Our next E700s to arrive in New Zealand will also feature this cabin.
The latest fully electric concrete mixer truck features a “lift off” battery pack that will dramatically lower the price of the battery swapping system.
Quality fully electric wheel loaders are now a reality with the XC918EV and XC958EV released at Bauma. The 6 tonne and 19 tonne machines both have 8 hours duration in normal loading conditions on a 50 minute charge time. Fuel costs are roughly 35% of diesel equivalents to run.
If you need bigger XCMG’s 150 tonne diesel electric XC9350 was released at Bauma. The 150 tonne operating weight loader is standard with an 18m3 bucket for quarry work.
The massive loader was certainly the star of the show at Bauma and features an energy recovery system.
A video of the XC loader series is here.

The larger LC10 tracked scissor was also at Bauma. The first units will arrive in New Zealand in January.
XCMG can now offer reach stackers with a 60 degree tilt function to quickly unload 20′ containers. This spreader can be added to the fully electric stacker.
