By Euan Youdale21 October 2021
XCMG has launched a 58.6m working height telescopic boom lift to the global market. Offering a maximum radius of 24.8m, the new XGS58E range-topper has a dual capacity of 230kg unlimited and 450kg limited.
Other statistics of the model include basket dimensions of 2.4m (length), 0.9m (width) and 1.15m (height). The boom offers a 360 degree rotation, while the basket rotates 160 degrees. The overall weight of the unit is 27.9 tonnes.
Thanks to a folding fly jib the machine can be reduced to a transportation length of 14.6m, which is designed to be economical and convenient, while its transport height is 3.07m
According to XCMG, performance was also an important part of the design equation. Apart from providing a 45% gradeability, it has a load sensitive hydraulic system, which makes it energy efficient. There is also stepless speed control to ensure smooth working movements.
The XGS58E is suitable for a range of applications in major building construction, structural steel work, petrochemical plants, and general rental.
