By Alex Dahm21 February 2012
A new truck crane will be one highlight of the XCMG offering at Intermat. The 30 tonne capacity XCT30 is a fourth-generation design that leads a new development direction, the Chinese manufacturer says.
It has a three axle carrier and five section telescopic boom and is designed to meet European regulations. Power is from a Mercedes engine driving through an Allison automatic transmission.
Electronic management gives fuel consumption savings of 6% for the complete machine, a 5% increase in operating efficiency and maintenance costs are reduced by 5%, the manufacturer says.
