Italian company Ihimer has made its bauma China debut at this year’s event, showcasing its new range of skid-steer loaders.
The Tuscany-based firm’s new models, the AS12, AS30, and the AS34, has been joined at the Shanghai show by the widely acclaimed award-winning and ecofriendly CARRY 105 EP.
Igino Elefante, sales and marketing director for Ihimer, said, “Since the summer of 2012 we have been marketing and selling in China our mini excavators, made in Italy in our San Gimignano plant. This has been possible thanks to the recently launched and highly profitable collaboration with IHISCE, which handles distribution of our products nationwide on the Chinese market.”
Speaking about the new skid-steer models, Elefante added, “The new models are the latest generation of skid-steer loaders: reliable, safe, and designed to guarantee absolute respect for the operator and the environment. Our participation at bauma China will serve as a springboard to launch the Ihimer brand on the markets of the Far East and Oceania.”
Weighing 3.075tonnes (AS30) and 3.425tonnes (AS34), the machines have ISO load capacities of 0.85tonnes and 1.02tonnes, and a break out force of 2388kgf and 2836kgf respectively.
Ihimer says that the new skid-steers have been designed with maximum levels of comfort and ease of operation in mind. Features include a sprung seat with dual positioning adjustments, multifunction joystick, loader arm damper, loader arm float system for automatic levelling, two ground speeds, hand throttle and accelerator pedal, traction control system and manual engine idle control.
