XCMG launches 90m truck mount

By Murray Pollok14 March 2011

XCMG, one of the biggest Chinese construction equipment manufacturers, launched a 90 m working height truck mounted platform at bauma China.

XCMG is best known for its crawler and truck mounted cranes and already makes a wide range of self-propelled telescopic booms and fire fighting machines, but the GKH90 is its largest ever industrial platform.

The unit on show in Shanghai, weighing around 40 t, was mounted on a Scania P380 five axle chassis and has an articulated boom, with a four section main boom and four section upper boom, with fly jib.

A spokesman for XCMG said the 90 m model would be targeted at customers in China and Asia, and that the company had plans to design a 100 m model next year.
