County Sanitation Districts. An early adopter of alternative-fueled vehicles, the sanitation district was given a chance to demo the machine earlier this year at its Joint Water Pollution Control Plant.

LiuGong North America has sold its first battery electric vehicle in the United States, the 856H-E MAX wheel loader, to the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts.

Sanitation Districts officials said the purchase from Warrior Machinery, a LiuGong dealership based in Rialto, Calif., further demonstrates its commitment to protecting public health and the environment.

An early adopter of alternative-fueled vehicles, the sanitation district was given a chance to demo the machine earlier this year at its Joint Water Pollution Control Plant. Officials hope to secure additional funding by registering the electric vehicle with the California Air Resources Board's Clean Off-Road Equipment Voucher Incentive Program (CORE).

While the sale marks the first in the United States, the 856H-E MAX already has a reputation for reliability in the field. As of October 2022, there were more than 2,000 electric wheel loaders operating in some of the world's toughest conditions, with exponential growth in quantity expected thereafter.
