LiuGong Launches Electric Excavators and Loaders

By Mike Osenga13 September 2019

China’s LiuGong used the stage provided by BICES 2019 — the 15th Beijing International Construction Machinery Exhibition & Seminar — to launch its first purely electric loader, the model 856H-EV, as well as two electric excavators, the 906E-EV and 922F-EV, as well as the electric 5G remotely controlled wheel intelligent loader, the model 856H. The 856H wheeled loader has been co-developed and supported by China Telecom and Huawei technology.

The new electric machines use lithium-ion battery systems for energy storage with the power directed to permanent magnet electric motors to create the power to drive the machines. LiuGong said that a typical electric vehicle will have a peak power output two times that of a conventional machine.

These first generation of the electric construction equipment are equipped with fast charging technology and energy-saving technologies, which reportedly require one hour to charge the battery to 80%.
