The OEM says that these machines have sustainability at the forefront and, “represent a significant leap towards reducing carbon footprints in heavy industries.”

Among the equipment showcased were new electric wheeled loaders, skid steer loaders, backhoe loaders, and mining loaders. A newly launched hybrid loader, XC968-EV, is said to save over 35% in fuel consumption on average, compared to conventional fuel-powered loaders.

What the OEM says is China’s largest electric drive loader, XC9350, was also on display. This is reported to reduce fuel consumption by 25% and increase work efficiency by 20% compared to hydraulic drive loaders, making it suited for working with 120-180 ton mining trucks in open-pit mines.

At the event, attended by over 1,200 invited guests from over 60 countries and regions, the OEM also showed what it says is the world’s first hybrid all-terrain crane certified by CE and WVTA, the XCA60_EV, which offers plug-in, pure electric, and hybrid operation modes, significantly reducing operational costs by 40%.

Also on display was the XLC220-E, China’s largest electric crawler crane. This has a lifting capacity of 220 tons and with just two hours of direct current (DC) charging, it can perform stable lifting operations for eight hours, significantly reducing fuel costs.

XCMG also released a new generation of serialised bulldozer equipment, Series 5 complete road construction equipment, digital and intelligent technology, and a complete set of mining road construction equipment.
