LAS VEGAS -- An all-electric compact track loader showcased by Doosan Bobcat, a construction equipment maker affiliated with South Korea's Doosan Group, at CES 2022 requires no diesel fuel and operates with zero emissions, reduced sound levels, limited vibrations and lower daily operating costs.

The T7X machine is more productive from the ground up with electric actuation and propulsion, quieter with high-performance torque and more powerful than any diesel-fueled track loader, Doosan Bobcat said in a statement, adding that Sunbelt Rentals, an American equipment rental company, promised to purchase T7X track loaders and electric compact excavators.

"By making an investment in this first-of-its-kind, all-electric technology, we support our ESG objectives of empowering our customers and communities with the availability of alternative rental solutions that reduce emissions and noise," Sunbelt Rentals CEO Brendan Horgan was quoted as saying. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) is a trendy corporate operation method that focuses on the use of green energy as well as reducing carbon emissions.

Doosan Bobcat said the lithium-ion battery and intelligent power management system supports worksite daily operations and automatically backs off power when not needed to preserve energy use. The hydraulic workgroup has been completely replaced with an electrical drive system consisting of electric cylinders and electric drive motors, which means virtually no fluids. 

Operators no longer must wait for the standard hydraulic system to build up power. The T7X works quietly and efficiently in noise-sensitive areas and indoors, which significantly lowers sound levels. While applications vary, each charge can support common daily work operations and the use of intelligent work modes for up to four hours of continuous operation time and a full day of operation during intermittent use.
