Thanks to everyone who visited our stand at the Fieldays 2016
We even made the cover of the business section of the Herald with a few punters checking out the Mantall scissor.

Introducing Michael Manion our new Sales Manager for Landex.

XCMG is now the only Chinese Manufacturer in KHL’s  World Top Ten rankings.
This year’s survey also noted tough times globally in the machinery sector with total sales value down 16.2% on last year.

The first of our Cummins QSB engined LW180K loaders on it’s way to Taranaki.
This one is off to Coastal Drainage and is their third Landex loader purchase.

The latest waste handling Landex/XCMG 858 working hard, 22 hours a day, in Onehunga.

I was back in China last week picking up the smaller 838 version at the factory.
This 11 tonne unit features an extended boom and will also be working in Auckland, this time for Waste Management.
This fully guarded waste handler will be fitted with low profile cushion solid tyres in New Zealand.


Also at the loader factory was XCMG’s first ever skidder.
This 360hp, Weichai powered machine was one of about a dozen at the factory, all destined for Malaysia.

Another first is this small wheeled dozer at 17 tonne with a 210hp Shanghai Cat engine.
This machine is destined for Tibet. Most of the XCMG wheeled dozers are much larger in the 30 to 50 tonne range.
A nice angle of the final loader assembly line working on 11 tonne loaders.

The hundred meter high fire-fighting aerial platform at the display area.
Fairly heavy on its Benz chassis at 64 tonne.

A few road headers ready for delivery at the factory.
