LeeBoy India Construction Equipment (LeeBoy India) recently unveiled a range of best-in-class crawler excavators, backhoe loaders and motor graders for the road construction and excavation segments of the industry. The products, engineered at LeeBoy's Bengaluru facility, will help companies in the infra sector enhance their operational efficiency and productivity.
"At LeeBoy India, we are working relentlessly towards minimising customer's pain points, by enhancing our equipment's productive performance, uptime, and the ease of operation and maintenance, so that our customers can singularly focus on their business outcomes, which manifests in successful and timely completion of their projects, at optimum cost. With the addition of these globally marketable machines to our portfolio, we are well-positioned to play a significant role in the industry," said Kamal Bali, President & Chief Executive Officer, LeeBoy India.
Crawler excavator 523i: The LeeBoy 523i is a 23-tonne machine with two variants; one with an electronic 170 HP Tier-III engine, and the other, with a mechanical 169 HP engine. Armed with globally proven engines, the load sensing hydraulic system, diligently validated superstructure, an electro-hydraulic fan drive and advanced electronic diagnostic display, the 523i is at the top in its weight class, engineered for high productivity and excavation power, with optional working modes for fuel efficiency.
Backhoe loader 699i and 679i: The new generation LeeBoy backhoe loaders embody LeeBoy's commitment to excellence in engineering and manufacturing. The two models, powered by 80 HP and 100 HP state-of-the-art engines, have options around 2WD or 4WD, centre pivot or side shift, extended dippers, safety features and multiple attachments to suit any specific application. Unlike its peers, the 699i comes with the engine of a 14 tonne excavator and is, therefore, geared to perform under extreme duty cycles and tough environmental conditions.
Motor Grader 985i: The LeeBoy range of motor graders is about high torque, performance and reliability. This cutting edge technology is powered to do anything from building a road and cutting a ditch to moving earth, doing site work and fine grading. The LeeBoy 785i, 12.5-tonne grader which was commercially introduced in the beginning of 2012 has been very well received, capturing a double-digit market share within the first year of its launch. The 985i, a 15.5-tonne machine, is slated to further strengthen LeeBoy's growing presence in the market place.
With large projects planned across India, these new products from LeeBoy are timely and well poised to take on the opportunity that is available in the market. With a value proposition that seeks to minimise customer's pain points, these equipment are a result of an intense engineering effort that factors in deeper customer insights and offers comprehensive solutions for improving the uptime, serviceability and productivity at work sites. These machines come equipped with ergonomically designed and comfortable cabin and well thought through safety features.
