LiuGong, Kinshofer create ‘potent, cost-effective’ scrap/demo solution
The Kinshofer MQP-30-Y Multi-Quick Processor and LiuGong 925E excavator combination were featured at the Live Demolition event held by the National Demolition Association at its 2019 Demolition Rockies expo in March. The live demonstration gives prospective owners and their crews the chance to operate various types of equipment from different brands, comparing their performance and capability for themselves in a single day.
The LiuGong 925E excavator is an ideal match for the Kinshofer MQP30 Processor, designed for excavators in the 22- to 35-ton (48,000 to 77,000 pounds) category. Its operating weight is 28.8 tons (57,540 pounds). Rated gross power is 190 horsepower from its 6.7L Tier 4 Final Cummins engine, and maximum hydraulic flow is 126 gpm from two variable displacement pumps.
During the 6.5-hour demo, 15 of the 682 Live Demolition participants got to operate the setup for their own on-site comparison. More than 1,000 yards of concrete rubble had been brought to the fairground demo site and arranged in a 6-foot-high line for the machines to work on.
LiuGong has been a trusted global leader in construction equipment for over 60 years. Its North American product lines feature major components that are familiar to the U.S. and Canadian market, such as the 925E unit’s Cummins engine. LiuGong NA products are supported through its offices in Katy, Texas, and its family of highly valued dealers.
