Good Morning

Blackhead’s fully electric mining dump coming down the hill with a 30 tonne load. On an average day the truck carries 600 tonne down the slope and uses around $4 a day of electricity.

This Trader Group video (DOW) features Logan Point quarry manager Joe Hunter explaining their reasons for selecting the Etruck and their impressions so far.

A couple more 4WD electric Multitasks heading out, this time for Ward Demolition.

We can now offer the 60 tonne capacity P9 dump truck with a RHD cabin with ROPs and an Allison automatic transmission. They are powered by a 460hp Weichai diesel and are priced at $377,000 + GST ex Auckland or Lyttleton.

XCMG have called 2020 “the year of the excavator”. The expanded factory has capacity for 40,000 units a year.
These zero tail swing models are available with tier III or tier V engines.

The cabin tilts forward for service on the 4.2 tonne, XE35U. These are available at $52,300 + GST with a tier III engine.

First seen at the excavator factory last month XCMG’s forestry guarded harvester/processors. The XE300UF are 38 tonne and are powered by at 244hp tier4f Cummins. These are aimed at the US forestry market and available at a remarkable $415,000 + GST (plus your choice of head)

Rio Tinto has purchased nine mining spec graders from XCMG ranging from 30 to 55 tonne.

XCMG sent a lot of equipment and staff to Wuhan to build several new hospital facilities in the initial response to the corona virus outbreak.

To support that effort Landex has supplied a carton of P2/N95 face masks to XCMG. Even this small donation got a mention Chinese TV.
