The XCMG XS333 is a smooth-drum road roller.


The model comes in an XCMG branded box.  Inside the box, the model is contained within expanded polystyrene trays. 

The review model had no missing parts or defects.

No information is provided about the real machine. 


Looking underneath, the rear axle transmission is modelled and there are plastic scrapers to clean the drum.  The rear axle has nice tyres mounted on plastic wheels.

At the front the roller frame is modelled well with sharp graphics, and indentations on the sides.  Hydraulic hoses run from the pivot point.  The drum is smooth in style but is actually modelled with fine ridges.

At the pivot point there is a steering locking bar modelled on one side.

The cab is very good, with a detailed interior and plastic grab rails and mirrors.  There is a tiny beacon light on the metal roof.

The engine cover at the rear is very good with fine quality mesh grilles.  There are nice graphics on the counterweight.


The drum turns but does not spin freely because of friction from the plastic scrapers. 

The rear wheels spin together freely but the axle does not oscillate.

Steering across the pivot point achieves a very limited angle.

Both cab doors open widely.

The engine cover opens fully to reveal a detailed engine.


This model is solid and well made.  It has a high metal content with plastic used appropriately.

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


It is good value for a large model.


Yagao has produced a decent road roller model and it only lacks a little functionality in terms of the steering angle. But it is nicely detailed and looks good.


Smooth drum has tiny ridges.
Profile view.
Small graphics on the counterweight.
Excellent mesh grilles.
