Even though its name might not be quite as well-known as its Chinese compatriot Liugong, XCMG actually claims the title as China’s largest manufacturer of construction equipment. So when the company announces the introduction of a new wheel loader, it is well worth taking note.

The new XCMG WL40GU wheel loader is a 16 tonne class machine that is powered by a Cummins QSB6.7 diesel engine developing 144 kW.

The machine is equipped with a 2.5 cubic metre capacity bucket and boasts a maximum dumping clearance of 2.586 metres.
