Bauma Munich 2016

Landex report from the Bauma exhibition in Munich.

Good Morning

Last week I attended the Bama exhibition in Munich.
This is the largest construction machinery trade show in the world, with around 500,000 visitors over the week.

Some fortunate timing had us in Hong Kong for the 7’s on the way there. Fiji just too good for the AB’s in the final this year.

It was interesting that XCMG chose to display the LW180K for the show in Munich. This is a model in which Landex has had a lot of development input.


Also on display was the 35 tonne, LW1100KN featuring a fully automatic ZF transmission.


The 28 tonne LW800KN now also has the new cabin and panel work.


XCMG displayed the latest 100 tonne all terrain and 55 tonne rough terrain cranes.


XCMG also displayed a classy 3.5 tonne zero tail swing and the latest XR280 rotary drill which is the market leader in this size.


Palazzani was also at the show. This is the new release 12.5 tonne version of the teleloader.


The Mantall display included the narrow 10m scissor.


Star of the show from Komatsu was a PC7000. These weigh in at around 680 tonne, in this case with a 36m3 bucket.


This extreme terrain boom is based on a spider excavator. It is designed for ski lift maintenance with maximum working height of 42m


This is apparently the world’s most powerful prime mover at 1150hp.


Hamm had converted a road roller into a vibrating rock crusher.


Claas displayed a pivot steer mulcher that can also handle rocks and stumps.
