XCMG showcases Australia-ready cranes at 2023 National CICA Conference

XCMG Australia displayed three cranes at the 2023 National CICA Conference.

XCMG Australia has showcased its latest models specifically designed for the Australian market at the 2023 National CICA Conference in Perth.

Displaying the XCT25L4_Y truck crane, the XCA40_E all-terrain crane, and the XCA160 all-terrain crane, XCMG’s Crane Product Sales Manager in Australia Stephen Broomfield emphasised the “commercial success” for the Chinese manufacturer at this year’s expo.

“We’re thrilled to display these cranes at the largest crane exhibition in the southern hemisphere. The models drew widespread attention,” he said. “We introduced three crane products with exceptional performance, strength, and working range that meet Australian customers’ expectations.”

Designed specifically for operations in rainy, hot, and humid environments, XCMG’s 25-tonne truck crane garnered a lot of attention from attendees at the exhibition. The machine possesses a 34m, four-section main boom, an 8.3m auxiliary arm, and a 4.2-tonne counterweight configuration, making the crane suited for – among other operations – urban renovation, transportation, ports, bridges, oil fields, and mines.

On the all-terrain crane front, the XCA40_E is equipped with a 35m, four-section main boom. The crane possesses an all-wheel steering chassis, giving it a turning radius of 9.7m – demonstrating the crane’s high level of manoeuvrability. Featuring a low-speed, high-torque engine and a high-ratio over-speed gearbox, the crane achieves a 12 per cent reduction in driving fuel consumption, a 15 per cent boost in power performance, and a 15 per cent decrease in overall fuel consumption.

The 160-tonne capacity XCA160 all-terrain crane, on the other hand, possesses the longest boom in its class at 65m, lending itself practically to the mining industry. The crane is capable of maintaining its operations in soaring temperatures of up to 50 degrees Celsius and, thanks to its high capacity and long boom reach, is most suited for jobs requiring heavy lifts in tight, confined areas.

News of XCMG’s success comes after reputable ASX-listed crane hire company Boom Logistics purchased a new XGC320 crawler crane through West Coast dealer Ronco Group.

The 2023 National CICA Conference is the largest crane exhibition in the southern hemisphere. XCMG was the platinum sponsor for the event this year.
