Earthmoving equipment for infra construction
With the growth of India’s construction equipment sector, the nature of work execution has moved from manual labour towards greater mechanisation, over the past two decades.
Earthmoving & construction equipment (ECE) industry is a direct recipient of the accelerated pace of infrastructure development in India. With urbanisation, the city skylines are changing to accommodate vertical growth including high rise residential complexes, commercial spaces and multiplexes. The ECE sector is witnessing intense competition and localisation has emerged as a key parameter with focus on customised products adapted to the indigenous market.
Technological advancement is the need of every sector and this holds true for the construction equipment (CE) sector as well. While in the past decade, a lot of technological advancements have taken place in the CE segment in the country, there is still a long way to go.
Here are some of the technologically advanced products in the space of earthmoving equipment.
Mahindra & Mahindra’s DigiSense backhoe loader
Mahindra Construction Equipment has always strived for providing the best to the market. In the pursuit of the same, the company has introduced its novel backhoe loaders which offers best-in-class fuel efficiency (4.5* litres per hour). The Mahindra DITEC engine with flat torque curve implies saving of 10 per cent in standard evacuation cycle. With the launch of new telematics system, DigiSense by Mahindra Group, the equipment are loaded with advanced technology to track real-time performance.
“Mahindra’s EarthMaster is a personalised machine with ergonomically designed cabin higher operator comfort, larger storage space, and new-age digital cluster that helps the operator to identify and trouble shoot problem by reading messages and hearing warnings in 6 different languages,”Manish Arora, Business Head, Mahindra Construction Equipment, said.
