XCMG’s new 90 m working height GKH90.

XCMG, one of the biggest Chinese construction equipment manufacturers, launched a 90 m working height truck mounted platform at bauma China.

XCMG is best known for its crawler and truck mounted cranes and already makes a wide range of self-propelled telescopic booms and fire fighting machines, but the new GKH90 is its largest ever industrial platform.

The unit on show in Shanghai is mounted on a Scania P380 five axle chassis and has an articulated boom, with a four section main boom and four section upper boom, with fly jib. The weight of the unit is around 40 tonnes.

A spokesman for XCMG said the 90 m model would be targeted at customers in China and Asia, and that the company had plans to design a 100 m model next year.

XCMG has a reputation for developing new products very quickly. For example, it took less than two years to design and build its latest 2000 tonne capacity crawler crane, which it also launched at the show.

XCMG is based in Jiangsu, China.
