New Stage V excavator from XCMG

By Andy Brown02 September 2021

XCMG has launched the first generation of its short tail medium-sized excavators, the XE155ECR model hydraulic crawler excavator.

The newest model in the China-based company’s Stage V construction equipment range, the XE155ECR has an operating weight of 16.6 tons, providing a maximum digging depth of 5.5m and a maximum digging radius of 8.2m.

In the most recent Yellow Table, International Construction’s ranking of the the world’s top OEMs by sales, XCMG was in the top five companies. 

With a short-tail design, the model can work in confined areas with a swing torque under 153mm, said to be a 35% increase on space-saving compared to the last generation XE150E model. With dozer blade attached, this new model is suitable for multiple job conditions.

Power comes from the Cummins Stage V compliant engine which is equipped with a Diesel Particulate Filter and an associated regeneration system for reduced nitrogen oxide emissions at 0.4g/kWh.

To further improve the environmentally-friendly operative experience, the model is equipped with an auto-idle function that automatically saves engine speed when the controls are inactive for a preselected amount of time or when the safety lever is switched off. The engine immediately returns to its original selected speed when the operator touches the controls.

The new model is equipped with the XCMG Intelligent Control System which provides a synchronised communication link between the engine’s Electronic Control Unit and the hydraulic system to achieve more evenly distributed fuel for smoother operation.
