Chinese manufacturer XCMG has shown a new 25 tonne capacity truck crane with a hybrid diesel and battery-electric power train.

The XCT25 EV is a three axle crane with a four section telescopic boom. XCMG claims an operating range of more than 800 km. This is achieved with fully charged battery and full diesel tank, the company said. Operating modes can be switched between a combination of diesel and battery, just battery, just diesel or the crane can be operated via a cable from a mains electricity supply.

Acceleration time from 0 to 40 km/h is given as 16 seconds and recharging time to full is said to be 1.5 hours. The manufacturer said the noise level of the new crane is 60 decibels instead of 80 db for the diesel-only model. In 2021 XCMG said it registered 44 patents in China and nine patents in other countries for its mobile cranes.

This new hybrid version of the XCT 25 was one of five new C-series wheeled mobile cranes, including all terrain models, launched at the event held in China, mid-November 2021.
