Recently, LiuGong’s 45t reach stacker, CLG2450, has been exported to the ports in Asia Pacific and America. As LiuGong’s first large-scale machine specifically built for usage in ports for container loading and unloading, it marks an important milestone in the development of LiuGong’s material handling business.The CLG2450 is designed for container transshipment in seaports, railway stations and cargo yards. It can be used for container handling, stacking and short haul transport operations.As LiuGong’s first heavy-duty material handling machine, the CLG2450 has a 45t base capacity. It is the largest and heaviest product and has the most complex hydraulic and electronic control technology in LiuGong’s material handling product line up. To meet the demands of customers, the machine adopted many advanced technologies including SAS technology, negative flow feedback control, constant power variable control, temperature variable cooling control, electronic and intelligent touch control and unified managing of engine, gearbox, hydraulic system and braking system by CANbus. Additionally, all key components were specifically designed and made by world-leading component suppliers.Making the operation of the machine intuitive, efficient, and accurate was a key drive in the engineering and design; the digital control system ensures this with full digital, multi-language interface and an automatic fault detection system, allowing for quick maintenance and repair. Designed by LiuGong’s Industrial Design team in the UK and the forklift R&D team in Liuzhou, the ergonomically designed machine gives operators a safe, comfortable and easy operating machine.
