Full Line of LiuGong Products in Sumatra
—Feature Story 13 of the 20th Anniversary of LiuGong’s Globalization
Indonesian market has huge market potential and it has developed rapidly in recent years, especially in the fields of infrastructure construction, forestry, and mining. Since its establishment in 2019, LiuGong Indonesia has continued to expand LiuGong’s full range of product lines in various industries throughout Indonesia.
On a coal mine site in Sumatra, dozens of LiuGong equipment are in operation, including excavators that are deployed on digging operations and mining trucks that shuttle coal back and forth, creating a picturesque scene.
The customer has contracted a total of three surface coal mines. Last year, with the business’s continued development, he wanted to buy a 50-ton excavator, and contacted several manufacturers, but could not find a satisfactory model. The customer came into contact with LiuGong and was quickly convinced by the reliability of LiuGong equipment. They started purchasing batch LiuGong equipment in December last year, and the number of units has increased to 53 in the first half of the year, including loaders, excavators, rollers, motor graders, bulldozers, and mining trucks.
“At present, our main business covers two aspects, one is overburden removal and coal getting. The coal mine’s annual target volume is 2.5 million tons. We initially rented construction machinery and equipment, and later tried to buy our own equipment for operations,” remarked Nides Pasule, the manager in charge of the site. “We first purchased LiuGong equipment because of its economical price. But as we all know, fuel consumption is crucial for our contractors. After using LiuGong equipment for half a year, we found that this equipment not only has low fuel consumption, but also works very efficiently. In addition, LiuGong has a complete product line, which sufficiently meets the one-stop demands of coal mining. Now that the price of coal is rising, we have calculated that using LiuGong equipment for three years will bring us a considerable profit. “
In front of a LiuGong 922E excavator, Maruf Rusandi, a veteran operator of construction equipment since 1986, remarked excitedly on LiuGong equipment: “Compared with other brands of the same level, the advantages of LiuGong 922E excavator include faster speed, more flexibility, easy operation and higher fuel efficiency. The spare parts are widely available and easier to find, which brings us great convenience.” While speaking on this, he entered the 922E excavator’s cab and showed everyone the LiuGong equipment’s excellent performance.
LiuGong Indonesia and the local dealer provided customized service support for the customer’s coal mine project to guarantee that the equipment attendance rate is higher than 90%. The reliability and effectiveness of LiuGong products deeply impressed the customer, who noted that they will purchase more LiuGong equipment in the future as their business continues to expand.
