Liugong India has launched advanced CEV Stage IV Wheeled Equipment, New Wheel Loader, Soil Compactor, Motor Grader and Tandem Roller, making the company more competitive in the Indian market. Report NBM&CW.

Liugong India is strengthening its market positioning with a slew of new products that include the advanced CEV, Stage IV models 818 N, 836N, 848 H, 838H MAX and 856H MAX wheel loaders, which will be manufactured at the company’s Pithampur plant in Madhya Pradesh. Other products launched in the road construction segment include the 4180D motor grader, 611 soil compactor, and the 621 0E tandem roller, which is a first for the company.

Wu Song, MD, Liugong India, informed that the products are fitted with the new BSIV electronic engine, and come with higher capacity buckets, ergonomically designed cabs, hydraulics, and most importantly, Liugong’s own axles and transmission systems. “We have made these advancements keeping in mind the local operating requirements and job sites conditions in different parts of India. In fact, we keep on devising new solutions as we are strongly committed to the Indian market, and we will continue to cater to the needs of both our existing and potential buyers with the best of products and services,” he added.

Said Nischal Mehrotra, VP, Marketing, Liugong India, “No doubt, the more advanced features will raise the cost of these products, but if you look at the long-term benefits of their superior performance in terms of higher productivity, more reliability, and fuel efficiency, customers will soon recover their investment. What’s more, Liugong’s ‘I-Link’ Telematics will ensure higher availability of the machines as it will help in predictive and preventive maintenance, which will ensure greater availability of the machines.”

Liugong has been working on BSIV emission platforms in the highly regulated global markets since 2014. According to Wu Song, the new Stage IV engine will bring challenges such as fitment of the components in the machines and integrating them with the circuits to ensure optimum performance; besides, timely service and ensuring equipment uptime as most of the machines will be working for long durations. “However, we have built a sound base of vendors in India who are supplying the critical components as per Liugong’s quality standards. So, we are confident of meeting customers’ expectations of timely deliveries, support and services,” he said.

“The machines have undergone extensive field tests of 20,000 hours in the most difficult site conditions, so we can confidently assure customers of their reliable performance and durability,” added Mehrotra.

He informed that the new 838 H MAX wheel loader will be targeted for use in iron ore, coal, and quarry handling applications. Powered by 160HP, 6-cylinder, Ashok Leyland engine, the 3.8-ton wheel loader has 2.4 cum buckets, and an ergonomically designed, standard AC cabin.

The smaller 818 N wheel loader is designed for use in ready mix concrete plants and for crushing plants of 70-80 tph. It is also a good substitute for owners looking to upgrade from a backhoe because of its higher loading heights, faster loading at higher bodied and standard tipper trucks, fuel efficiency, and ability to work with attachments like tire handlers and grapples.

The 856 H MAX wheel loader is powered by the Chinese, Yuchai 225 HP engine, and has advanced transmission and axles. With a capacity of 5.5 tons and 3.5 cum bucket, it is suitable for working in higher capacity crushing plants. The 848 H, 4.5-ton wheel loader is powered by Yuchai, 220 HP engine and has a standard bucket of 2.8 cum.

As regards the new 6210E Tandem Roller, Wu Song informed that it will mark the company’s entry in road construction for use in surface preparation. “The 6210E has better amplitude and is powered by Kirloskar 4R 1190 NA1, 74.5 HP engine that delivers 2200 RPM, enabling faster cycle times and helping meet project completion timelines,” he said.

The BS IV 611 Soil Compactor has a new Kirloskar 4R 1190 TAI, 110 HP engine, improved vibration system, variable closing loops, axial piston pumps, and a two-point electronic control.

The 4180D motor grader is now fitted with an Ashok Leyland 180 HP engine (earlier it had a Cummins). “With the new electronic engine, and a standard AC cabin, the motor grader can work in mining sites as well as in road construction,” informed Woo.

“Liugong’s expanded product range will cater to wider application requirements at diverse job sites. We will accordingly strengthen our support to our customers,” said Mehrotra.
