China puts the first electric bulldozer into operation

An SD17E-X electric bulldozer has been put into operation in China, currently the world’s only bulldozer with an electric propulsion system.

It is reported that the electric bulldozer was developed by Shantui Construction Machinery Co. Ltd. from Shandong. It is called SD17E-X and is equipped with an unknown type of battery, which has a capacity of 240 kWh. This allows it to work for 4-5 hours in a particularly tough environment, or 6-8 hours in a gentler environment.
