AdvanceQuip is partnering with the largest Chinese and third-largest global construction equipment manufacturer, XCMG, to offer a range of compact excavators

AdvanceQuip is partnering with the largest Chinese and third-largest global construction equipment manufacturer, XCMG, to offer a range of compact excavators. The exclusive agreement between AdvanceQuip and XCMG will initially offer New Zealand buyers a selection of models between 1.7- and 5.5-tonne variants, which will come with a mix of ROPS canopy or A/C cab, arrive ready to work with quick-hitch plus up to four buckets, emergency stop system, anti-drop valves, dual auxiliary hydraulics, and power-angle blade, depending on the specific model chosen.

Engines across the range are Kubota and Yanmar, fully supported by a four-year/4000-hour warranty. The first shipment arrived in Auckland in August, with the final units of the initial order landing in October. With compact excavators now accounting for more than 50% of total machines sold nationwide, the growth in the market provides an excellent opportunity to expand AdvanceQuip’s brand portfolio, says AdvanceQuip managing director Steve McLean.

"Having sent one of AdvanceQuip’s directors to review the XCMG line-up in Australia earlier this year and getting fantastic feedback on the build quality, we decided to make this an integral part of AdvanceQuip’s business.

"We had no interest in a product that would not fit seamlessly into our amazing line-up of globally respected brands, and based on everything we have seen, XCMG will be more than fit-for-purpose, with the added benefit of being one of the most cost-competitive minis on the New Zealand market."
