New models from construction equipment manufacturer Liugong at this year’s BICES show in Beijing, China, will include its new 970E excavator – a 70 tonne class machine targeted at the quarrying and mining industries.

The company said the 970E features a Cummins QSX15 engine and Liugong’s new electronic controller, which is said to ensure that the engine and hydraulics are matched to the application for fuel efficiency.

Maintenance points on the 970E are also grouped together for easy access. The machine features centralised, automated lubrication, and Liugong said maintenance intervals had also been extended.

A record 1,500 exhibitors will take part in October’s BICES exhibition, which takes place from 15 to 18 October at the Jiu Hua International Exhibition Center.
