PLooks great with an XCMG XE7000 excavator.

The XCMG XDE360 is a mining truck with an unladen weight of between 360-400 tons.  Fully loaded the weight is 620-660 tons.

At the time of the review the real XDE360 mining truck had not been introduced.


The model comes in a large XCMG branded box which has a plastic carry handle.  Inside the box, the model is contained within a pair of expanded polystyrene trays.  The model is protected by soft paper.

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

A plastic pointer tool is included with the model.


Starting underneath, the detailing includes hydraulic hoses and other small parts, and the underside of the engine is visible.  The main structural parts are metal, with other parts in plastic which have an excellent colour match.

The wheel are plastic and very detailed.  The large rubber tyres look really good with a detailed tread pattern.

At the front the handrails, stairs and mirror assemblies are modelled in metal. The grey box is plastic and it is nice that the front bumper had towing points with useable holes. The front grille is very good with some fine see-through mesh.  Up on the cab deck the surface is surprising as it is smooth, and it looks like it should have some non-slip texture. 

The cab is nicely modelled and includes two operators which probably represents a driver and a trainer.  A single driver would probably have been better.

Under the cab deck a detailed engine is visible.  Large rubber mud flaps are fitted behind the front wheels, and between the wheels large tanks and boxes are modelled in plastic.

At the back the huge rear axle assembly has painted lights.

The lift rams for the dump body are single stage and appear to be metal.  The body is very nicely modelled with sharp graphics and useable lifting points.   Large chains hang down as rock deflectors between the rear wheel pairs, and small rubber mud flaps have the XCMG logo on them.  At the rear a safety bar for locking the dump body when tipping is modelled, although it is non functional.


The wheels turn easily with the rear ones attached to a common axle which makes turning a little less smooth.  The front wheels have a reasonable amount of steering movement.

There is working heavy duty suspension on all wheels and it is suitably stiff.

At the front the access stairs can be lowered.

On the cab deck there is an opening flap to give access to the engine below. 

The cab doors open, with the one on the driver's side a little restricted by the external handrails.

The dump body rams are smooth but very stiff, although that does mean they have no problem holding a pose.   The angle of tipping seems less than would be expected, and is less than is seen on models with two stage rams.  However the real truck appears to have single stage rams.


This model is robust and well made.  All of the main elements are metal, but there is plastic used in other places although the colour match is really good so it is hard to notice.

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


It compares well with models of a similar size and type.


This is a very good mining model by Yagao, and it looks great when paired up with the XCMG XE7000 mining excavator.


It was released in April 2018.
The steering angle is reasonable.
Profile view.
Detailed underneath too.
Access stair lowered.
Massive proportions.
Two men in the cab.  Walkway is smooth.
Impressive model.
