Designed specifically for the unique working conditions of India. 

LiuGong India, the fully-owned subsidiary of China-based LiuGong Machinery Corporation, is jacking-up its Indian operations by launching new products. The company will be launching the advanced 611 Vibratory Soil Compactor at the EXCON 2017, along with LiuGong 921 Di excavator.

The market for compactors in India is on the go, with an estimated sales figure of 4,000 units sold annually, of which almost 50 per cent are soil compactors. Construction industry demands optimum compaction with minimum number of passes these days, resulting in growing relevance of vibratory compactors as against static rollers. These machines send pressure waves into the soil surface in different directions leading to the particles achieving a dense state of orientation. Although initial capital investment for these products are higher, contractors are starting to realize that an extra premium is bound to pay off in the long run, given the cost savings achieved out of lesser number of passes.
