Mr. Sorab Agarwal, Director, ACE says, "Our entry into the road construction business is quite nascent involving five years. During this period, we have strongly added perfection to the products at various levels, so as to make them attuned to various application requirements of the contractors. Making the units cost-effective, productive and reliable, has been our major emphasis. This is evident in our 173 hp, 15 tons Motor Graders, fitted with ZF technology transmission, delivering best in class output. Looking forward to expand the product portfolio, we will introduce our new 150 hp, 14 tons Graders by February 2017. Our new introduction also includes, 4x4, 50 hp, Di 550 Tractors for haulage of granular sub base materials and crushed aggregates at road construction sites located on undulated terrain and soft soil apart from various other haulage applications. We are also observing our business grow in 3.5 Tons and 9 Tons class Tandem Rollers and 10-12 Tons class soil compactors fitted with Kirloskar engines.
ACE also displayed its new F-160, 16 tons, Nexgen mobile cranes which comes with 4 section telescopic boom, 2nd and 3rd part being hydraulically operated and synchronized and 4th part, power extended. The crane is powered with an option of Tata/ Ashok Leyland, 4 cylinder water cooled, turbo charged and after cooled engines.
Apart from these, ACE displayed its new 40 tons Truck Mounted Mobile Crane on its own dedicated chassis. Sharing details of the product, Mr. Agarwal says, "Earlier the 40 tons Truck Mounted Crane was on Ashok Leyland chassis. This increased the overall height of the Crane. To further increase the stability of the 40 Tons Crane, we decided to use our own manufactured dedicated chassis having better centre of gravity." The crane is powered by Ashok Leyland/Tata Turbo charged, inter cooled diesel engine developing 225 bhp @ 2500 rpm. ACE manufactures Truck Mounted Cranes between 25-40 tons. The 25 tons and 30 tons are mounted on Ashok Leyland chassis currently.
Mentioning about the company's future initiative towards product support for its existing and newer products, especially training support, Mr. Agarwal says, "We are adequately positioned with a network of 100 dealer locations in the country and our own sales and service network. These outlets are fully equipped to provide genuine spare parts and services by the company trained Engineers. Our dedicated product training Centre at Faridabad, provides training on maintenance and operation of the machines. We constantly upgrade the training tools in line with advancements carried in our equipment."
