LiuGong had the pleasure of kicking off Bauma 2016 with the first press conference of this gigantic trade show. The Chinese equipment manufacturer had a huge amount of new machines to show off at its booth, among them a new pair of skid steers.

The CLG375 and 385B will soon make their way to the North American market and both machines are powered by a 3.3-liter, Tier 4 Final Yanmar engine producing 73 horsepower in the 385 and 67 hp in the 375.

The 385 weighs in at 8,267 pounds and features a dump clearance at full height of 8.4 feet. It has a rated load 2,304 pounds and a static tipping load of 4,608 pounds.

The smaller 375 is 6,834 pounds and features a dump clearance of 7.2 feet. It has a rated load of 1,907 pounds and a tipping load of 4,158 pounds.

LiuGong says both machines feature a monoblock frame, trapezoid box boom frame and four wheel drive with an optional Carraro front axle. The cab on both machines can be tilted back more than 80 degrees for engine and hydraulic oil filter changes.
