Purchased through Ronco Group late last year, the crane arrived in the ASX-listed crane hire company’s depot on February 1, representative of the shorter lead times available with XCMG’s products. According to Robert Smith, owner of Ronco, the delivery of the new machine was a “significant purchase” that the XCMG dealer for Western Australia, Northern Territory, and South Australia took “great pride in”.
“We are delighted to announce the recent acquisition by Boom Logistics of the XGC320 through us here at Ronco,” he said. “This collaboration underscores our unwavering commitment to delivering comprehensive solutions for our esteemed clients.”
On top of its 320-tonne lifting capacity at five metres, the new Boom Logistics crawler crane possesses a maximum boom length of 88m, a hoist speed of 120m per minute, and a maximum lifting load moment of 1870 torque-metres. Set to be deployed in one of the hottest places in Australia serving a major mining company, GM of Boom Logistics – West Coast, Lester Fernandez, cited the affordability and post-sale service offered by Ronco as the main reasons behind the purchase back in October last year.
“Analysing all operational and financial metrics, the XGC320 emerged as the best fit for our needs,” he said. “The crane’s robust post-sales service support, outstanding quality and cost-effectiveness made it the ideal choice for the company’s fleet.”
