Good Morning

Now in testing in Xuzhou, XCMG’s first fully electric 8×4. Set up as a tipper it has a massive 363kWh battery bank located behind the cabin. As it is based on the G7 Hanvan series a RHD cabin is already available.

A new charging option for the electric trucks, this dual plug 75kW DC that will charge our E300 demonstrators in two hours. The charger draws a whopping 160 amps but can be dialed down to suit what is available at your site.
$43,600 + GST ex Penrose.

One of XCMG larger electric drive trucks this 120 tonne rigid dumper is diesel/electric.

A quite strongly built integrated rear axle.

I visited the excavator factory to have a look at the new wheeled XE150WB. This is a very high specification machine with a Cummins engine and German built ZF axles.

Some more 300 tonne excavators being prepared for delivery to Australia.

This XE470 has clocked 21,000 hours in five years fitted with a breaker. If that sounds like hard work the owner reports that he currently gets paid 90c a tonne of rock processed.

A new expressway is being built to connect Beijing to the venue of the 2022 winter Olympics. The new road will reduce the current four hour trip to little over one hour. A key component is a 9.4km tunnel where this three arm rock drill is hard at work.

The Olympic rings will be incorporated in the final interchange design.

I also visited the crane factory to inspect a 50 tonne crane for a client. XCMG are building 100 of this model a month of which about a third are exported.

These fire pump trucks are part of an order for Senegal and nearly ready to ship.

A recent display of the larger XCMG fire fighting equipment.

Some XCMG loaders were sent to help with flood relief in Tibet

I also visited an agricultural machinery factory and saw this 100hp crawler tractor. Featuring hydraulic drive and wheel steering the tractor can spin 360 degrees on the spot. Very low ground pressure and great climbing ability all for around $62,000 + GST.

Another electric forklift with bale clamp getting ready to truck to Waste Management in Dunedin. These now are standard with an automated battery water filling system.

A new cab design on the 12 to 16 tonne forklift range. The highest spec version features a Cummins QSB engine, ZF transmission and Meritor drive axle.

The cab features hydraulic tilt to allow easy access for servicing.

Two more scissors on trailers going out to repeat customer Auckland Racking.

We currently have good stocks of the XE60 Mini Plus, the cheapest wind rated scissor in New Zealand. This one will soon be heading to work at Hibiscus Marine Coatings.
