LiuGong launches the revolutionary vertical lift loader at 2016 global dealer conference

On November 14-15, LiuGong held its 13th Global Dealer Conference in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China. More than 500 attendees including dealer representatives from 71 countries, government officials, industry association delegates, media, business partners, LiuGong management team and staff gathered together to celebrate the event.

This year marks the 13th anniversary of LiuGong’s globalization efforts, with the slogan “From Challengers to Champions”. With 13 year’s development, LiuGong now has more than 300 dealers across 6 continents in around 130 countries. Meanwhile, LiuGong has established its global layout to support the worldwide business, comprising of 10 regional offices, 9 parts deport centers and 3 overseas manufacturing plants located in India, Poland and Brazil. LiuGong’s overseas sales revenue accounted for more than 30% of all the company’s total revenue in 2015.

Launched in 2003, the annual dealer conference is not only an opportunity for the dealers around the world to experience LiuGong’s new technology and new Product Development programs, but also a chance to celebrate the achievements of the past year and exchange ideas for the future.

At this year’s meeting, LiuGong launched the revolutionary vertical lift loader, a truly innovative concept, which marks an important milestone for LiuGong and for the construction equipment industry.

The key innovations of the product are the vertical lift loader arms on an articulating frame and the mechanical self-leveling Z-bar bucket linkage on a vertical lift loader – both industry firsts.

The vertical lift was developed as an innovative way to increase customer value when purchasing a loader. Vertical lift accentuates the wheel loader’s primary function: lifting and carrying a load, by providing a heavier tipping load and a higher lift height than conventional wheel loaders of the same power and weight. Fuel costs are greatly reduced since the reduced operating weight of the vertical lift machine allows more tons material to be moved per horsepower than with a conventional radial lift machine. This allows customers to move more tons per hour for lower initial investment, and lower owning and operating costs than would be required with conventional technology.

“This technology will create a new class of the machines. Our ‘truly new’ LiuGong vertical lift loader will be the first ever for an articulating frame loader. We are proud to say that we were the first to develop and will be the first to market the vertical lift articulating frame wheel loader,” said Edward Wagner, Director of LiuGong New Technology and Test, inventor and lead engineer of the technology.

This new product will be ready for mass production in 2017.
