KATY, TX January 15, 2009 It has been a golden year for China-based LiuGong Machinery Corporation. With its 50th golden anniversary, and all the gold handed out during the 2008 Olympics in its home country, LiuGong™s North American division spread a little gold of its own, introducing a skid steer with more features at a lower price than any competitor.
LiuGong introduced the new 365AIII Skid Steer at the most recent CONEXPO in Las Vegas, Nevada. It offers a larger, enclosed operating cab with pressurizing A/C and heat along with auxiliary hydraulics. On existing competitive machines, these features come at an additional cost. Slightly smaller than the current LiuGong 375 Skid Steer, the 365AIII still houses a 64.1 horsepower Yanmar Tier III engine that can operate at a weight of 6,504 pounds with a static tipping load of 3,500 pounds and a maximum dump height and reach of 84 x 21. Other standard features include short throw, low effort control levers, safety interlock out for engine start, a front window safety feature to avoid boom interference, heavy duty radial lift loader arms, North American compatible mechanical quick coupler and world class components such as Sig Sauer and Husco. The LiuGong 365AIII Skid Steer also features a 3 year, 3000 hour extended power train warranty.
LiuGong offers optional equipment for the 365AIII Skid Steer which includes an open ROPS cab and various attachments among other things.
LiuGong Machinery Corporation North American leaders are enthusiastic about the introduction of the new 365AIII Skid Steer. The 365AIII has exceeded our expectations in performance and quality, states Ron Hargrave, president of LiuGong North America.
Any time you introduce a new machine, even if it™s been successful in other markets, there is a concern that your particular market may find fault. That has not been the case with this machine. With well received input, we feel we got it right the first time, states George Lumpkins, director of aftermarket support and product development of the 365AIII introduction.
Awarded the 2008 National Quality Award for the machinery industry, the highest honor of Chinese quality management, LiuGong continues to offer its customers peace of mind with their commitment to service and follow-through after the sale.
LiuGong North American dealers serve the entire United States and can be found in Arizona, Illinois, Maine, New York and Texas.
