In May, China State Construction Engineering Corp (CSCEC) signed an agreement with Abu Dhabi state-owned investment company Aabar that will see it channel US$ 2 billion into real estate projects in the emirate.

The company says the Interim Tier 4 Isuzu engine offers 10% better fuel efficiency, +7% more lift capacity, +3% faster cycle times and improved serviceability. As with most other new machines this year, there is an auto idle function to cut fuel consumption at times of inactivity.

The large, 7-inch (178 mm) colour display is the main tool for changing the machine's settings and this can also take a feed from the rear-view camera, which is a standard piece of equipment. The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) will provide the funding, while CSCEC will be the contractor for the project, which includes the construction of hotels, office buildings and high-end residential buildings in Abu Dhabi.
