Continuing its successful, sector specific focus which netted LiuGong Direct UK the prestigious Demolition Supplier Of The Year Award in September 2021, LiuGong are confident that their new line-up of machines will meet the tough demands of the quarrying sector.
From breaking to lifting, load and carry and heavy dozing, LiuGong’s machines are perfectly matched for every quarrying application.
Currently LiuGong UK offer a range of 6-wheel loaders from 11T (835H) to 31T (890H), 5 utility excavators from 1.7T (9017F) to 9T (909ECR), with 2 more models being introduced later this year, and 12 models of heavy line excavators from 13T (zero tail swing 913FCR) to 95T (995F). The line-up is completed with 3 Dressta dozers from 19 to 42 tonnes of operating weight.
“We are delighted to be able to showcase our quarrying capability at Hillhead for the first time,” said LiuGong Direct UK’s Managing Director Steven Ford.
“We’ve taken our time; we’ve talked and listened to quarrying customers and have used this insight to create a range of machines that are perfectly matched to their requirements.
Our tough machines have already proved themselves in both quarry and demolition applications, and we are excited to expand our business further. The LiuGong brand is now widely recognised, and we are attracting more and more customers to our machines.
We were recently presented with the prestigious Demolition Supplier of the Year Award, not only for the quality and reliability of our machines, but for the proactive and first-class aftersales support we pride ourselves on. When down-time is not an option, we believe that our machines and our back-up make the difference”.
Visitors to LiuGong stand (D4) at Hillhead will have the opportunity to evaluate an impressive line-up of 11 static and demo machines. LiuGong’s flagship 995F will be the centre of attention at the quarry face, where it will be demonstrating its formidable 95 tonne handling capability. Visitors will also be able to see social media influencer Paddy Quinn putting the 922F with Engcon tilt-rotator through its paces, demonstrating LiuGong’s superior grade control.
The star of the show will be the launch of LiuGong’s new 30-42T F-Series machines, (930F, 933F, 936F, 939F, 942F) with the all new 936F, representing these new machines at Hillhead.
As you would expect, these machines set a new level for toughness, comfort, and reliability. Designed around the operator, they share LiuGong’s Red Dot award winning design DNA.
Commenting on LiuGong’s new F-Series machines, Harry Mellor – Product Manager for Excavators explains, “The 939E has been a big success in the UK, but customers challenged us to go further. With our new F-Series machines we have risen to that challenge.
Our new 936F easily outperforms the 939E, whilst the 939F steps up to become a credible leader in demolition. But we have gone further to meet customer demands with the all new 942F which features a wider and tougher undercarriage, increased diameter boom cylinders and a heavier counterweight for impressive lifting capability and mass excavation ability. The F-Series proves that we really listen our customers and work proactively with our design, R&D, and engineering teams to deliver the machines our customers want to own and operate.”
Static displays also include the 928F and 952E, both designed for heavy duty work and presented with full factory supplied demolition specification. The eye catching and “Instagrammable”, 913FCR will be presented in a unique livery to celebrate the F-Series’ UK tradeshow debut.
When it comes to heavy-duty applications and material handling, LiuGong wheel loaders have earned their global reputation for toughness and reliability. Weighing in at 31 tonnes, visitors will be able to take a closer look at the 890H: LiuGong’s largest wheel loader on offer to European customers.
Completing this tough, quarrying line-up is the New Dressta TD-25M series-1 crawler dozer. With an operating weight of 41,500kg, a drawbar pull of 794 kN and improved visibility with enhanced operator comfort & safety, the TD-25M is built for the heaviest pushing and ripping challenges and sets the scene for Dressta’s Red Dot Award winning TD-16N “the new benchmark for visibility” that will be officially launched in the UK in January 2023.
Hillhead also marks the debut of a new business venture for LiuGong Direct UK with the first of LiuGong’s extensive Aerial Work Platform range being showcased in the UK. The compact and efficient LSC0812DE Electric Scissor Lift, has an 8m working height, intelligent controls and fully complies with all UK and European legislation for performance and safety.
“We are delighted to be attending Hillhead this year,” said LiuGong Europe Chairman Howard Dale, “I believe visitors to our stand will be surprised by the quality and performance of our machines, the breadth of our range and impressed & reassured by the industry leading customers who have already invested in LiuGong and Dressta machines.
Our approach has always been to understand our customers and to design the best machines for their application. We have proved this with our Red Dot Award winning design, we have proved it in demolition capability, and I believe we will prove it in quarry sector too. We may be a global company, but we never forget to listen to our customers, and to work with them to deliver the machines they want to own and operate.”
