LiuGong presented its new E-Series excavator machines to the Dutch public for the first time at the recent Technische Kontakt Dagen (TKD) show in Almere.
Hansan Construction, the dealer of LiuGong machines in the Netherlands, demonstrated the new 922E, 925E and 930E E-Series machines.
Hans van der Heijden, Sales Director of Hansan Construction, said he was pleased with the response to the new machines, particularly given the scale of established European competition.
“As with any new manufacturer on the market, people need to be convinced. But people know our company, they trust our company, and know that we only deal with high-quality machines,” said van der Heijden.
Each E-Series machine is equipped with a sustainable Stage IIIB Cummins engine and features a host of ergonomic features for greater efficiency and operator safety. The machines are further modifiable to the customers’ demands, and look set to make a significant impression on the competitive European excavator market.
The very nature of shows such as TKD gives dealers like Hansan Construction the opportunity to illustrate the machines’ European suitability first-hand.
Adaptability to the European market is said to have been a primary factor in LiuGong’s burgeoning success on the continent, ensuring the machines are EU regulation compliant and that they can cater to the Dutch market’s needs.
Van der Heijden added: “Regular, direct contact with LiuGong helps both of us to develop the future generation of machines. It means we can make quick modifications to suit the customer, as well as providing fast delivery and a greater availability of spare parts.”
