3.5-TON ELEC­TRIC EX­CA­VA­TOR DE­SIGNED BY XCMG AND CUM­MINS SERVES AS TECH­NOL­OGY DEMONSTRAT­OR IN CHINA

PMV Middle East - - PEAK PERFORMANC­E -

The 3.5-ton elec­tric ex­ca­va­tor de­signed and built by XCMG and Cum­mins that made its de­but at this year’s Con­expo show in the US serves as a tech­nol­ogy demonstrat­or in China.

The new elec­tric ex­ca­va­tor is suit­able for op­er­at­ing on work sites in densely pop­u­lated towns and cities around the globe, sur­pass­ing strin­gent emis­sions re­quire­ments and keep­ing noise to a min­i­mum while get­ting the job done.

Pow­ered by Cum­mins BM5.7E bat­tery mod­ules, the ex­ca­va­tor has 45 kwh of bat­tery power. Each bat­tery module is de­signed for very high shock and vi­bra­tion ca­pa­bil­ity to en­dure the harsh con­di­tions of the con­struc­tion en­vi­ron­ment. Pre­cise match­ing be­tween mo­tor and hy­draulic sys­tem cre­ates an ef­fi­cient, re­li­able and quiet drive sys­tem, mak­ing it ideal for use in ur­ban and sub­ur­ban con­struc­tion.

On a sin­gle charge of less than six hours, the ex­ca­va­tor meets op­er­a­tional needs for a full 8-hour shift. Short charge time means that equip­ment can be charged overnight, elim­i­nat­ing down­time and tak­ing ad­van­tage of off-peak en­ergy sav­ings.

The ex­ca­va­tor is now back in China where it will be used in a se­ries of per­for­mance and cus­tomer tests con­ducted by Cum­mins and XCMG, to prove ca­pa­bil­ity of the demonstrat­or and re­fine a ro­bust so­lu­tion for the mar­ket.

This pro­ject is part of Cum­mins’ and

XCMG’S agree­ment to col­lab­o­rate on re­search, de­vel­op­ment and in­te­gra­tion of tech­nolo­gies across a wide range of prod­uct lines.
