European and US release for XCMG’s next gen excavator

China-based XCMG has launched its new generation hydraulic excavator XE260EN for the European and US markets.

According to XCMG, the 22-30 tonne XE260EN is especially designed for fuel efficiency and its controllability allows the operator to work easily under different working conditions.

Tailored for the mature European and US markets, XE260EN is equipped with the high-pressure common rail EFI engine that meets Europe Stage V emission requirements, which can achieve optimal fuel injection control, and is more energy-saving and environmentally friendly.

The excavator has a new large diameter multi-way control valve. According to XCMG, this brings more controlling options in different operating fields.

The cabin is new and has a panoramic sunroof to provide a greater wider view, while the centralised arrangement of operation buttons is said to make the driving experience a comprehensive upgrade.

In terms of electronic control system, it can achieve optimal matching control of engine speed and hydraulic pump. The operation process will be recorded at any time by remote fault diagnosis function.

The excavator is equipped with a new type of LED colour display, and has regular reminders for machine maintenance.
