LiuGong to Unveil 950E Excavator to North American Market
LiuGong North America will unveil the 950E excavator to the North American market during ConExpo-Con/AGG 2014. Along with the unveiling of the 950E, LiuGong North America also plans to unveil the 365B skid steer loader at the show as well. All together, LiuGong will showcase 10 units during the show, including wheel loaders, Dressta bulldozers, rollers, skid steers and forklifts.
The 950E excavator, LiuGong's large ton excavator, features a fuel efficient Tier III/Stage IIIA, 375 hp (280 kW) Cummins engine, ideally suited for high production construction applications. The advanced hydraulic system gives the 950E better speed of front end working equipment, while cutting down the hydraulic system's damper loss, for improved working efficiency. The 950E also is equipped with industry known, world-class components, such as Cummins, Kawasaki, Nabtesco and Grammar.
The 950E also will feature a LiuGong twin lock PowerLatch quick coupler, ensuring contractors will have use of most of their currently owned attachments, regardless of make. The quick couplers can be purchased for most LiuGong excavators in the North American market today.
“The introduction of the 950E continues LiuGong North America's strategy of providing a full line of construction products for our dealers,” said Marc Dowdell, president of LiuGong North America. “We offer one of the most complete lines, including wheel loaders, excavators, Dressta bulldozers, large compaction and forklifts in the industry. The introduction of a 50 ton class excavator after years of rigorous testing only strengthens our line up.”
LiuGong celebrates its 55 year anniversary and will have special events in the booth to celebrate the occasion. Dealers, contractors, the public and media are invited to visit the LiuGong booth, 12166, in the North Hall during the ConExpo-Con/AGG.
