XCMG goes big at Bauma
18 March 2016
Chinese manufacturer XCMG will showcase its LW1100KN large-tonnage wheel loader before the European market at Bauma.
The new machine is designed to be used on port projects, logistics enterprises and large mining undertakings.
As well as enhanced power and stability, the LW1100KN promises reliability and boasts a host of safety features, including XCMG’s new integrated FOPS&ROPS monolithic cab, connected to the framework with silicone oil shock absorbers.
XCMG says the loader offers significantly improved efficiency, with load-sensitive technology adjusting the pressure and flow rate to reduce fuel consumption by up to 15%.
The loader’s Cummins electronically-controlled engine, with direct injection and turbocharging, offers a high torque coefficient and enhanced power, while the ZF single-turbine torque converter and automatic transmission adds to reliability.
The LW1100KN’s automatic gearbox has four forward gears and three reverse, which can be switched automatically or manually.
Front and rear frames of the loader have been given more rigidity and overload resistance, giving the machine the capability to withstand greater torsion and impact.
Additionally, the limit-sensing mechanism is able to ‘remember’ angles, offering more accurate lifting and loading and reducing repeated operations, making the machine more efficient.
XCMG will also showcase its new compact and easy to maintain XE35U mini excavator.
Suitable for working in limited space, the front working arm’s ability to rotate 75° to the left and 50° to the right gives the XE35U the capacity for wall-parallel excavating.
Additionally, the tailless design means the rear of the machine never moves out beyond the excavator’s tracks during a 360° rotation.
The Yanmar Stage IIIA-compliant engine and hydraulic system are matched, ensuring optimal fuel consumption, and the hydraulic system itself is optimized to make the most efficient use of a multiple-pump system, which incorporates high-pressure Bridgestone hoses.
The excavator’s chassis system and structural parts are reinforced and durable, adding class-leading stability to its speed and versatility in moving between excavation, material crushing and cutting, and pit/hole drilling operations.
Inside the cab, operator’s benefit from spacious work area, a cool and warm air-conditioning system and a woven fabric seat. A colour monitor also feeds data back to the operator in real time.
