It is XCMG’s customer festival this week in Xuzhou to display the latest technology. As part of that festival we can offer discounts on any confirmed new build orders placed until the end of May. If you are considering new XCMG equipment, its a good time to place that order.
The New Zealand launch of the XE35U-E electric excavators will be at the Fieldays, June 14-17 at Mystery Creek. Come and see us at site D24.

Our E700 8×4 cab chassis and 6×4 tractor remain the number one selling heavy electric trucks in China for the first quarter of 2023.
I also drove XCMG’s hydrogen FCEV trucks. The 6×4 tractor has 10 x 210l tanks with the hydrogen stored at 350bar. Very similar to an electric truck to drive, except the regeneration braking effect is much less.
