Chinese manufacturer XCMG has launched a new Tier 4/Stage V compliant mini excavator for the US, European and Australian construction equipment market.

The new XE27E/U (European/U.S. Version) mini excavator weighs 2.7 tonnes (2.9 tons) and is part of the company’s newest generation of machines.

Available with either a cab or canopy, it features a Kubota D1105 engine that provides 15.6 kW of power at 2400 RPM and is said to offer a lower TCO (total cost of ownership).

XCMG said, “The key hydraulic parts adopt the latest technological achievements with many advantages, which are low fuel consumption, fast and accurate response, small impact, powerful digging force and excellent operation efficiency.

“The perfect match of engine and hydraulic system enables the engine to operate in the best working area to enhance the fuel utilization and decrease the operational cost.”

Designed for working in tight spaces, the XE27E/U mini excavator has zero tail swing and can be used with a variety of attachments via a quick coupler.

Standard safety features of the new XE27E/U include cylinder guard plates and safety valves, with a protection guard for the cab available as optional extra.
