XCMG moving into extraction markets with new ADT and wheeled loader

XCMG's new articulated dumptruck is designed along conventional lines
XCMG is broadening its business operations into new markets, with a key focus being an increased share of the extraction industry segments. Examples of this can be seen at bauma China in the shape of the firm’s new 50tonne class wheeled loader and its 45tonne class articulated dumptruck. Hanson Liu, assistant president and general manager of XCMG, explained that this widening shift also reflects the firm’s transition from being an equipment supplier to becoming a solutions provider, a vital change in approach for markets such as the extraction industries.
This wheeled loader is the largest the firm has ever made and features an array of new hydraulics and electronics. Targeted at the quarry sector in particular, the machine is said to be rugged and durable, with good all round visibility from the cab.
Meanwhile the new ADT is designed along conventional lines with its diesel supplying power through a mechanical driveline to the twin rear axles, unlike the prototype machine the firm exhibited at bauma China 2012 with its diesel-electric configuration.
