Good Morning

XCMG recently supplied 4 million face masks and other medical PPE to the Vale mining group in Brazil.

Brazil buys quite a lot from XCMG.

The latest E700 6×4 tractor now features battery swapping capability. The truck can return to the road fully charged in under 5 minutes.
More on this in the next newsletter.

The E700 can also be equipped with airbag suspension.

We can offer New Zealand made polymer tippers for the E300. The use of “hyslip” polymer panels reduces the tare by around 450kg.
Payload will be over 5 tonne with designs suitable for either aggregates or lighter materials.

Our only delivery during level 4 lock down was an 8 tonne forklift to Waste Management to handle empty containers. The cabin version with Isuzu power is available at $87,000 + GST

XCMG’s latest fully electric reach stacker is nearing completion. This model has a massive 422kWh battery to provide over 8 hours of work time. Quite remarkable for a 72 tonne machine with 45 tonne lift.

Quite a bit of interest in the pure electric 4.2 tonne excavator. The drive train is all from Cummins and mass production will begin this year.

One of the infrastructure projects in China now on fast forward is the next 59GW of wind energy. New Zealand has around 700MW so far.
The XCMG XCA1600 all terrain crane can assemble each 90m tall 2.5MW turbine in two days.
