    Case, one of the largest construction equipment companies, has unveiled a new all-electric backhoe, which it claims has up to 90% lower cost of operation.

    Case unveils all-electric backhoe with 90% lower cost of operation - Electrek

    Had to share this from another forum. 90-kWh battery electric backhoe, lasts 8-hr workday, instant torque, much lower job-site noise, lower daily and lifetime operating costs...

    It's happening, electrifying now deep beyond commuter vehicles and further into construction equipment.
