Says Liugong India Vice President (Sales & Marketing), Nischal Mehrotra, “India is going to be a growth driver for the world in the coming decades, and much of this growth will come from Infrastructure development in the country. There are projects of significant national importance that are gaining momentum. Large-scale infrastructure development projects such as Bharatmala, Sagarmala, Ports, and Logistic Hubs will require larger and more productive machines which will create a lot of opportunities for the construction equipment industry.”
He adds, “In our history of being in India for over two decades, we have been innovating for the benefit of our customers. The mining range is the result of the feedback that we received from our customers looking for a robust fuel system. Our machines are designed to work in demanding site conditions and deliver higher productivity and equipment uptime.”
Liugong’s ilink advanced Telematics Technology gives live updates on the service, operations and security of its machines. The company has a network of 25 dealers and over 100 touch points across India. Over 500 service engineers are employed at these dealerships for providing professional product support.
Unveils Electric Wheel Loader at bauma CONEXPO India
Liugong India has also introduced a battery-powered wheel loader 856HEMax–which delivers all the benefits of electric power and zero emissions, without sacrificing performance. The 5.8-ton machine was unveiled by Shri Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways at the recent bauma Conexpo India.
“With this low-maintenance, battery-powered wheel loader, Liugong continues to bring leading innovations to the construction equipment industry,” says Mehrotra. “Quiet and emission-free, the 856HEMax offers more solutions for today’s diverse jobsites.”
The 856HEMax features lithium-ion battery technology and offers equal or greater performance than their diesel-powered equivalents. The battery systems deliver high-energy density, long service life, and do not require routine maintenance. The wheel loader provides about eight hours of continuous runtime and requires just 70 minutes for a full charge.
“With zero emissions, the machine supports environmentally sensitive worksites and allow users to operate in areas where diesel exhaust is restricted. The wheel loader’s electric power system contributes to an exceptional operator experience with drastically reduced noise and vibration, which both operators and jobsite bystanders will appreciate. Because they are quiet, this wheel loader can be operated at all hours of the day, even in dense urban areas, where noise can limit work hours,” says Mehrotra.
He adds, “The electric power needed to recharge the batteries costs a fraction of diesel. Plus, these highly efficient wheel loaders are built with fewer parts and fluids, which significantly reduces maintenance and repair costs, as well as work time lost to maintenance and repairs. The battery management system protects the lithium-ion batteries, extends battery life, and optimizes power usage. The system monitors the batteries and will even shut down the wheel loader to prevent damage to the batteries.”
