Good Morning

The first right hand drive XCMG fully electric truck is now being built for Landex.
It will arrive in New Zealand in late April. The demonstrator unit of the E300 will have an insulated aluminium box body as below. Let me know if you would like a test drive.

Also at the truck factory last week the first long bed fully electric truck from XCMG.

Staying on the fully electric theme XCMG can now offer the world’s first EV reach stacker the XCS45EV.
The 235kWh battery takes 2 hours to charge and offers 8 hours work time.

The first shipment of our rough terrain forklifts with duplex wide view masts is now in Penrose. These 3 tonne, Isuzu powered units are priced at a remarkable $31,000 + GST with the 3.5m mast and side shift.

This LW180K is our first machine supplied to Fulton Hogan. It is also the first one with the new colour scheme and will be based in Wellington.

The 4WD electric XE80W Multitask scissor lift with self leveling legs is now in NZ. The climbing performance is a remarkable 40%. These now have wider 150mm tyres and more ground clearance for better off slab performance.

The self leveling legs allow you to work on heavily sloping building aprons.We will be towing the demonstrator down to the Southern Ag Fieldays in Waimumu. Call Gavin on 0226 188456 if you would like him to stop by on his travels.
Or visit us at site 269 at the show and have a look, the show dates are February 14th to 16th
Also on site at Waimumu another LW300K for Road Transport Logistics.

Two of our new wind rated XE60 Minis on trailers ready for delivery to the Shelving Shop Group.

A delivery ceremony at XCMG for BHP’s three GR3505 graders. These mining specification graders will be used in Western Australia and are much the same size as a Cat 16M.

The current weather in China is quite a contrast to the recent heat records in New Zealand.

While you were relaxing over the holidays XCMG technicians were busy with the twenty day assembly of a 4000 tonne lift crawler crane on Yushan Island.
The lift was this 110m long,1800 tonne, propylene distillation tower for Sinopec

Construction has begun on the latest “tallest tower in the world” The not very excitingly named Dubai Creek Tower will be over 1000m tall and the total project covers 6 square kilometers.

The developers sourced 20 crawler cranes, 16 tower cranes, 10 truck cranes and 6 rotary drilling rigs from XCMG to work on the site.

XCMG are everywhere. Here XCMG cranes are helping to rebuild Brasil’s expedition base, Comandant Ferraz in Antarctica.
