LiuGong’s compact, zero-swing mini excavators already have had a strong impact in the market, in the same vein as the support for its large excavators and wheel loaders, and the latest 9057 model will complete the range of zero-swing excavators from 1.7 tonnes up to 5.5t.
Jason Lyall, with the Australian distributors for LiuGong, said the mini excavators had attracted praise for their versatility, easy manoeuvrability in tight spaces, reliability and performance, as well as renowned affordability that has become synonymous with the brand.
“They are easy machines to operate for a range of landscaping tasks, and, with their Yanmar engines and advanced hydraulic systems, they pack a punch and are very smooth and efficient,” Jason said.
“They also feature internationally-sourced and well-known components, as well as quiet, spacious cabs.”
Early next year, he said the LiuGong 9035 model also would join the new F Series machines, which deliver more power and torque at lower engine speeds for excellent fuel efficiency, and come with a host of extra features.
The arrival of a new range of skid steer loaders in early 2024, resulting in a complete landscaping line-up of skid steers and zero-swing mini excavators, is particularly exciting for the LiuGong Australia team.
The skid steer range will feature four models ranging from 3t up to 6t.
They are powered by the reliable Yanmar as well as Perkins engines, providing excellent performance and fuel economy, and operators will be able to use various attachments with them.
“The skid steers are compatible with all types of attachments and they will handle any job in front of them,” Jason said.
He said safety, incorporating high-strength protection systems, and easy maintenance were other big focus areas with both the skid steers and mini excavators.
Another major factor driving market growth for LiuGong equipment throughout Australia has been the enhanced access to parts and excellent product support for machines, which will flow through to the new skid steers in 2024 and expanded mini excavator range.
“Operators are liking the reliability of the machines as well as the related support,” Jason said.
“With the sheer volume of LiuGong machines now in the market and the significant investment in after-market support, operators can have confidence knowing they have got very strong backup and support for their machines and their business.”
