We’ve already laid the groundwork.

Electric and hybrid-electric solutions are already on the job.

For nearly a decade, we've been providing reliable hybrid-electric E-Drive Loaders to contractors in truly demanding applications. Last year we began testing our fully-electric E-Power Backhoe in the utilities market, and customers have been reaping the benefits in noise reduction, elimination of the need for diesel, and the ability to meet their own sustainability goals.

One size doesn’t fit all.

We’re developing a broad range of alternative energy solutions.

Our commitment to make our customers the most profitable and sustainable in the world runs deep. This means matching customers’ unique needs with the right solution. That’s why in addition to electrification, we’re also investing in technical advancements around internal combustion engines, renewable fuels, and hybrid-electric machines.
