July 2017

Thanks to all those who stopped by our site at the Fieldays this year. We enjoyed fine weather for most of the event and had very good inquiries for the full range on display.

I was back at the factory last week testing XCMG’s second prototype fully electric truck. It’s school holiday season in China and the crowds at the train station were huge.

The Chinese rail network is using XCMG 22m boom lifts to maintain their huge infrastructure investment.

The latest 7500kg GVM fully electric truck can now run 240km at 50% loading on a full charge. The cab chassis curb weight is now only 3200kg allowing a much improved payload. Mass production begins in November.
We are sourcing a RHD cab and we expect to have a demonstrator available in New Zealand this year.

At the road machinery testing center was this 16 tonne open cabin roller. Prices are much better now with the ROPs cabin version only $118,000 + GST

Also at the test facility the latest 27 tonne/300hp XCMG grader with US built Cummins engine, ZF transmission and wet axle.

Meanwhile back in New Zealand Herberts Transport’s new LW300K looking good in the Edendale sun

Another custom bucket ready to truck, this one for a Cat 928G. We can get buckets built to any size for any loader.

Another couple of three tonne rough terrain forklifts delivered to Nelson and Blenheim. These are easily the best value rough terrains in NZ at $33,000 + GST. Also available with fourth valve and fork positioning which adds $2,200 + GST
Recently delivered to Scott Construction and 8m scissor and a narrow 10m scissor working at the new Library in Picton.
More LW180K’s have arrived in Penrose and are ready to go, with or without quick hitches.

XCMG’s diesel electric articulated dumper can now divert power independently to each wheel to improve traction.

Finally a price reduction on the LH220 six tonne loaders. These smart looking 1m bucket machines are now $42,000 + GST ex Penrose. A wide range of attachments are available.
