Fieldays preview 2019

Good Morning

Come and see us next week on our usual site, D24 at the national Fielday’s at Mystery Creek.
This years special: free powered pallet jacks:
1. Leave your business card in the bucket and go into the draw for a pallet jack.
2. Or order machines worth $50,000 or more at the show and take one home.

We thank Wealleans and Reihana Drainage for allowing us to exhibit their latest loaders at the Fieldays.

Thanks also to Waste Management as well for allowing us to display their next two electric forklifts which are destined for Queenstown after the show.

Mantall’s zero turn, crawler scissor lifts have been shipped and will make their New Zealand debut at the Fieldays.

We will also bring one of our fully electric trucks

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. These automatic tail gate locks are used on all the XCMG dumpers

Delivery day for Birchfield Coal’s new LW180K at Kaiata.

I was back at the loader factory last week to pick up some more LW180KNZ’s for New Zealand.
My visit coincided with a “customer experience week” with some demonstrations for the 300 visitors. The week was very successful with over USD50m of orders signed, including 30 cranes to one customer.
The welcome at the crane factory.

One of the demonstrations was this guy in a skidsteer.

Wheel stands are one thing but driving on a steel pipe is better yet.

The line up of trucks at the truck factory for the visitors starting with three fully electrics.

Also on display the latest E700 fully electric 8×4. This one is part of an order for 100 tipper trucks to Shenzen and is painted in the customers colours. Shenzen has the fastest uptake of electric vehicles in China with over 67,000 currently in operation.

XCMG now have Euro VI Weichai engines under testing.

Get used to the exhaust, with it’s burner system, being about the same size as the engine. This is a small Isuzu Euro V

A nice new look for XCMG’s 40 tonne articulated dump truck.

A 40 tonne XCMG excavator with a super strong “tunnel arm”. Rather than a tilt bucket you get a complete tilting dipper arm for working in those awkward spots.

This is the fan hoist on the world’s first 140m high wind turbine. The self deploying, 1600 tonne XCMG truck crane, is just the tool for the job.

XCMG loaders get used in tough conditions, the Gobi desert, Antactrica, also loading corrosive products like sulphur and salt.
But how about cleaning up molten steel? The temperature next to the furnace is between 50 and 80C
